Oh man...I had so so so much fun taking a billion photos today at the bowling alley. Shot through 3 boxes of Type 72 Polaroid in the 4x5 and shot an additional 30 or so frames of film.

Thank you so much for making my day outstanding.

also thanks to @keifel and @wondermade for emailing me photos to use for today's shot.

Also, in case you were wondering, I'm gonna scan them all when I get home and do...something(?) with them. I'll find a way to keep you all in the loop.

Also also, I think maybe a shot of @motKe and @mrmaggie may be MIA. If you see any of the original polaroids hanging around, lemme know. I'd love to scan them all. Thanks!

KING. You really are a King even if you don't officially get it. @mackle probably just changes it to whatever he wants anyways.

Even though your makeshift photo studio in the bowling alley smelled like bearded man meat, I totally loved the effect your shoot had on the crew. Love how my shot came out. Can't wait to see them all.

Hey man. I looked and looked for the photo and the negative but I could never find them. It was really odd.

Great work regardless.

mackle says:
a very very well deserved win. You need to do something with those photos that can help pay back for all the money you spent on that film.

Congrats! Wish I'd seen this last night. You, sir, are a king among men.

I had a GREAT time hanging with you (and all the other beards). When are you coming up here again? We must make this a regular occurrence...

Now that I have resettled and am back at the office, I can take a minute to reply to everyone.

I am really excited to have gotten a for reals KB.


in reverse order, because I'm lazy / it's more convenient

@noelix my pleasure, seriously. had a blast.

@patrick thanks!

@kimjongillness i dont know when im coming back but we should get a #whiskerphotocrew together and hang out / shoot, etc. great time indeed!

@yourfavorite you know how it is shooting film/polaroid...its hard NOT TO. at one point i thought i'd just try to ration it and there was a specific moment where i realized theres no way i cant shoot every single frame. its so much fun. i was shooting a toyo-view with a 210mm lens on type 72 polaroid (and the film i shot was HP5)

@mackle thanks a million man. i'd love to do something AWESOME with them. gonna process the film soon and get on scanning everything. if you have any ideas about what to do with them, let me know. i'm bad at the ideas part of things. thanks for giving me an amazing subject matter with Whiskeroonies.

@boaz glad you guys like it. i'll have it back in your hands ASAP. thank so much for being a part!

@ozzynelson glad to do it. taking photos of sweaty dudes is a pittance compared all the hard work by other people, including yourself sir. we cannot thank you enough.

@UlaOcealleigh have fun! at some point they'll have their own home online and you can inspect even more. wish you'd been able to stow away in the scots' luggage!

@wondermade thanks for providing this half of my king! glad to finally have time spent in the same place and time to "meet," as they say.

@mattyc You came out awesome.

@miguelito in a way i feel i stole KB from you for your outstanding performance with @kidstatic

@thestride thanks man!

@mercantilever youre a king in my heart as well!

@chadmcclarnon @justjamey @folliclejuju thanks thanks thanks!

@ArmyofWhiskers i thrive in situations that smell bad...its weird. i'm glad you had fun


SHIT...there are just too many people to reply to. this will end round one. more later when im less overwhelmed (i'll still be more than whelmed, just less so)

a fully deserved win. these were great, and i hope you can get some more film. thanks for burning all of it on us weirdo beardos.
