The Faster They Go

The more busy I get, the faster the months go by. I started taking photos to capture moments around me. Here are some of my favorites from the last month.

David Coggin's most treasured possessions for The Burning House.

Tim walking back from the beach in Nicaragua.

Financial District sunrise with John Tinseth.

Dirt roads on BLM land in northern New Mexico.

A lot can happen in a month.


Jon Patrick from The Selvage Yard and his Leather Bag

My mom doesn't hesitate to voice her opinion about my posts and who I link to. She doesn't like some of my photographs of barns, she thinks Michael Williams is a dick and that his blog is over hyped, and she absolutely raves about Jon Patrick's The Selvage Yard. On Friday I met up with JP, as Jon Patrick is known throughout the menswear and blogging world, to interview the fine gentlemen that run design at Rugby for an article in next month's H(Y)R Collective.

JP dressed as you would expect a longtime menswear veteran and dedicated style blogger to, wearing classic staples of American and British fashion. However, his leather bag "really tied the room together" adding context to his dead stock 501's and mackintosh trench.

According to JP, he "found it [the bag] rotting in the basement an old Victorian house of a friend's, probably been there for decades and it was as brittle as an old dinosaur bone. took it home, soaked it in lindseed oil and cleaned it up with mink oil and it's now one of my most valued treasures. Not sure what the initials represent, but I'm intrigued and will never feel complete until I know..."

Meeting someone after reading their blog posts and tweets for months creates a unique sense of familiarity and insight into their thoughts. I had an awesome afternoon with JP and look forward to working with him on a column for the H(Y)R Collective.

Evan Daniel on The Fat of the Land

I am pleased to announce that my good friend, Evan T Daniel, is now contributing to the Fat of the Land. Evan has an amazing eye and takes some quality photos. He turned me on to photography on our cross country road trip last summer and has been a great reference and inspiration throughout the process of starting A.R.T. and my development as a photographer. Here are some of his contributions to the Fat of the Land.

Be sure to check out his blog, Ideal Uses, for his writings and photography.
