in the woods

in the woods

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog because for the past few months, I’ve had continuous sinus issues, which have worsened over the past month. I’m on two weeks worth of antibiotics, Flonase, Mucinex, herbal teas, ACV – I can’t believe I’m not glowing from all the medication. Being sick and trying to slug through the usual routine is challenging, but I feel as if it’s made me braver, more intuitive with photography. Maybe since, for two weeks with laryngitis, I could barely speak and chose images to express myself instead of words. Or because I’ve been so dazed out on all these meds, I didn’t over-think a photo opportunity: I took it. Maybe too, we shouldn’t have gone to camp at the beginning of this month, but I couldn’t resist taking my Polaroid cam to northeastern Ohio, where I knew we’d find a lost world. Holiday Campgrounds is a little city of decked-out trailers and campers, complete with ice cream stand, a general store and pool, and a private lake for fishing. We found a pregnant wolf spider, a house in the woods, a vacant blue motel without a name.

My friend Stacy was kind enough to give me this old pack of Polaroid 600-film that she had in her house for years. In contrast to the pastoral, painterly photos I took at Judi and Wayne’s farm a few weeks ago, these are unpredictable, creepy and scarred in beautiful imperfection, making my heart soar with happiness.
