Some fave shots from ‘One Average Day’on Flickr.Via Flickr: on Instagram bit.ly/11TQGv4 So, Oregon Project Dayshoot is something Chase is involved in (and I’ll be tagging along for). Here’s their own little press release:

On July 15, 1983, over 90 photographers spent 24 hours capturing daily life throughout the state of Oregon. Project Dayshoot was the name of this venture, and it produced a book entitled One Average Day. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Project Dayshoot, the original photographers—plus new contributors—are being organized to capture images throughout Oregon on July 15, 2013. This page, in conjunction with the e-mail address below, is the location for all information related to the project. Any proceeds from the sale of materials relating to this project will benefit the Oregon Historical Society.

For more information, they’ve got a Facebook page a site and a Twitter. Remember, Oregon locals, tag your shots #Dayshoot30 on the 15th! This is an awesome thing to be a part of.  We’ll be on the road a lot, hitting all the little towns we can, but I’ll be uploading Instagram snaps whenever I can get a signal, which you can follow on my Instagram or catch when they get pushed to myFlickr (username is also: BZedan).

City of Roses and Dicebox goodies. on Flickr.
Remember how a bit ago I was like “you should def show some commerce love to City of Roses and Dicebox”? Well, you still should because their work is still aces. Both are available online, in full, but if I know you and see you semi-regularly, I have hard copies of both works you are free to borrow to decide if you should own your own.

Alt flour cinnamon ginger muffin. Smells so good I’m almost furious. on Flickr.Alt flour muffin/scone base
1) Pre-heat oven to 400ºF
2) Pour almost a half cup of milk, add a glug or two of white vinegar to top it off, set aside.
3) Mix dry ingredients:
• 0.5 cup tapioca starch
• 0.5 cup garbanzo flour
• 1 cup nut (almond or hazelnut) flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 0.25-0.5 tsp baking soda
• spices or whatever (I’ve used cocoa, cinnamon, fresh ginger, currants)
4) Grate a stick of cold butter (8 tbs) into the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to combine. You want a mealy texture in the end, get the chunks of butter small and integrated.
5) Pour the now chunky milk into a bowl and add an egg and some honey. Mix well.
6) Add the milk/egg to the dry/butter and stir well.
7) Either glop into lined or well greased muffin tins or pat down to 3/4 of an inch on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet.
8) Optional: sprinkle some sweet on top. I like a touch of superfine sugar.
9) Put in oven for about 15 minutes.
10) When toasty on top and toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean, remove from oven and set aside for about five minutes.
Then eat the shit out of ‘em.
