Even with the dropping prices of DSLRs and the rising appeal of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the so called “bridge” camera is as popular as ever. “Bridge cameras” are big-bodied, big zoom point-and-shoot cameras that have the look and heft of a more expensive and feature-heavy camera but still maintain the simplicity of the standard and compact point-and-shoot cameras.

I will admit that I am a compulsive Sharpie buyer. I see one on a store shelf and before I know what I’m doing it’s in my hand. Perhaps I might even sniff the ink a little. Even if I already own that color or type of Sharpie I always find a way to tell myself that I need another one. My last such purchase included five Ultra Fine Point Permanent Markers that I just had to have (Yes, I really needed all five). An opportunity to procure another Sharpie never goes unmet. It doesn’t matter what color or what type, because I love all Sharpies!

I recently got to spend a few days with the Sony Reader Daily Edition, Sony's newest digital book. During that time I made better use of my commute, read more than I have since college, and realized that reading glasses should be my next upgrade. Aptly named, the Daily Edition provides access to daily newspapers, in addition to over 1 million books and periodicals.

In my parent's house are boxes of family photos stored in closets, cupboards, and desks. The pictures are loose, in albums, and some still in the sleeves they came back from the photomat in. From time to time when I still lived at home I'd pull the boxes out and sort through all the memories of my childhood, and from the years before I was born: photos of my parent's when they were dating, their childhoods, their parents and their childhoods. A visual family history. Some might call this clutter - but I prefer to think of these boxes as tangible memories.

During the Great Depression President Roosevelt's New Deal brought about many work and aid programs meant to help the American people recover from the greatest economic crisis in our nation's history. The New Deal begat the Works Progress Administration which gave birth to what was first called the Resettlement Administration and later called the Farm Securities Administration. The FSA employed many talented photographers, such as Dorthea Lange and Walker Evans, who were given the duty to document the daily lives of impoverished farmers in the rural parts of the US and the out of work and struggling in the nation's cities. Given our current economic crisis I've been wondering what would happen if the United States brought back such programs. How would the photo world change today if photographers were employed again by the government for such widespread documentation?

On a shelf above my desk sits an enormous binder full of 35mm slides, neatly stored in sleeves. These slides aren’t my work though. And it isn’t the work of anyone I know.

This past Thanksgiving I did a little experiment involving my boyfriend’s family: I brought a gaggle of instant cameras to the festivities. Seeing as he’s the love of my life, I wanted to bond more with his relatives. I wasn’t sure that everyone would be into this idea of mine, but I thought it just might work. That or they’d be dreading the next holiday where I would be in attendance. Guess what? It worked!
