new bicycle bags are headed to Atlanta Trek in Peachtree City and McDonough

The local Trek Store ordered 10 bags for their two stores. It was a little bit of a daunting task since I’ve been pretty leisurely creating these bags. I learned quite a few things making these in this quantity. One, they take a LOT of time. Two, I have to cut costs somewhere. Three, I […]

bicycle bags are here!

Just listed five bags on Etsy, so it begins! I’m pretty excited and hopeful for these things to do well. Might mean more work, but that’s just fine. They’re available here at my Etsy shop.

photos around the house – tri-x simulation

I love film. I don’t love the cost and inconvenience though, and the fact that no one local carries the film I like (unless I go up to Atlanta to Showcase but that’s a whole afternoon of sitting in the car in Atlanta traffic). Despite the inconveniences, I do still use film, and I do still […]
