friday loves

Hello friends.

How are you? If you subscribe to my newsletter or follow my social media channels, you’ve probably heard me mention the photo e-book I”m writing, Behind The Lens: The Art of Developing Your Photographic Vision. I’m wrapping up the sample chapter on how to start a long-term iPhone project, Design, Shoot, and Show Your iPhone Photos, which I hope to have ready for you in the next week or two! Fingers crossed.

I’ve also been experimenting in the kitchen with raw nut cheeses and yogurts, more on my new favorite almond chevre next week.

    what a nice list of news: your book, the long list of writer’s wisdom – and that was me in the comments about Judith Turner, she is one of the photographers I printed at Jon Goodman’s studio!

    • ArtandLemons says

      Sara, That’s so rad (um yeah, it’s 1980-something) that you printed one of Judith Turner’s photographs! Thanks for your comment and for sharing that. I must get in touch with him soon.
