It's crazy how a few days can really change your world in such a short time. It's also crazy to me how inspiring it feels to see someone genuinely try and see good in the saddest of things. It is an unbelievable feeling to sense that someone can feel happy in times of happiness, and sadness when it is due and meaningful. What an amazing example of self actualization I have seen in one of closest persons to me. Is this all just coincedence? Did we just happen to see the Netflix episode of 7 days out referencing Doublelifts loss of a loved one? Did our love for LANY's songs grow mutually even more? Did we not just own two escape rooms back to back as an RDNI unit?? Was it fate that we happened to be all there together with Gryffin for his last days? Either way, J, i Love you bro.
And We love you too Gryf.
This roll was shot on a Leica MP on Kodak Portra 800, Push developed +1 with a Summicron 28mm ASPH lens. Film was developed at Omega Photo in Bellevue, WA. I'm really starting to love 28mm. It feels like i can show you 'IM THERE!'.
I'm queuing this bad boy up now while i write this blog post:

Freaky lines to forever down the center. Getting ready to lift off to Portland before the snow hits.
Seriously, look at all the movement, personalities and stories this picture tells. What a blessing to see and capture.

These next two pictures both break my heart, and make me so happy to know he's in a better place. These pictures also teleport me for a millisecond every time, to the smells, vibes, feels and emotions we shared when we all were there for Gryf when he needed us. This boy was a beast and always put us first and making sure he never ever gave us an inkling of a thought that he would be a burden to us.
The way he looks at Daddy jr is one of a kind.
Bro is still lovin' us even when in a time it's so hard to feel love.
