a trip to ikea

Digital. Nikon D90.

Until now, I've only copies of my IKEA postcards sent to me by my publisher.  I knew that I needed to go to the store and see them myself.

I finally made a trip to IKEA today.  And when I turned the corner, and saw this display - I'll admit that my heart skipped a beat.  I wanted to announce to everyone that was passing by and shopping (and looking at me funny since I was taking pictures of postcards in IKEA) that these were my cards!  Amazing.

I'll never quite forget that moment.

Film. Kodak Ektar 100.

I should have mentioned this sooner... But one thing leads to another, and it slipped my mind.

It's been in the works for over a year now.  And a few of you have already noticed - 5 of my images were selected by Ikea for a postcard set.  Included in the set are: collect your thoughts, keep looking, music, the journey, and urban vintage.  Each of these images bring back such sweet memories for me.  They were all taken in 2009, and in many ways - my photography and style have changed.

I received these in the mail from my publisher, but I have yet to actually see them in the store.  A few more trips to Ikea are in my near future!

And yes, this these images are from the same roll of film as this.

Finally, I participated in Lindsay's Photography Month series by sharing a few film photography tips. Thanks, Lindsay!

blue, a postcard set

So happy to share with you a little project I've been working on! Blue is the very first postcard set available in my little print shop.

It includes a set of postcards featuring 4 of my favorite blue images you see above:

+ comfort

+ on my way

+ rest

+ sip

Each postcard measures 4.5" x 5.7" and they are printed on fine art linen paper - you'll *love* the texture of each card.

Mail them off, or keep them for yourself - your choice! You can find them in my little shop.

Have a wonderful weekend.
