Fall in the #PNW means low fog in the mornings. I’m OK with that. #fog #pointroberts #cascadialove

What an amazing summer it’s been.

Hello lovely people!  Apologies in advance for a bit of shameless self-promotion.. On August 20th, I will be taking part in an art show in Seattle, with RAW: Natural Born Artists.  The event features several photographers and other visual artists, but also performing, music, film, makeup, hair and fashion artists as well.  It should be a great night and I’m really excited that I was asked to take part in the event. 
If you’re going to be in the Seattle area that night, I’d love to see you!  If not and you’re feeling generous, you can still help a sister out and grab a ticket for the event anyway - all participating artists are responsible for a certain amount of ticket sales. Fifteen dolla, holla!  :)

About 4 years ago, I was first given entrance to one of the defunct textile mills in my hometown, by a man name Ronnie Stonica, who has a long history with the place.  (Some of you may remember him from another post)  Over the years, the mill became a place of exploration and solace for me as I learned more about myself and my camera.  Along the way, Ronnie and I became friends.

Just over a year ago and shortly before I left Georgia to make my big move to the Pacific Northwest, I went to visit the mill and have lunch with Ronnie.  Afterward, he took me to the elementary school he went to as a child.  It has since been converted into an office and storage facility for a small carpet manufacturer, but the upper levels still carry evidence of the building’s scholastic history.  

It was neat to watch Ronnie revisit a bit from his past and it meant a lot that he thought to share it with me.

More from Friday’s trip to Homegrown Co-Op.
