Rule #1

Rule number one: never leave the house without a camera.  I'm not the greatest at following this rule, but I am getting better.  Saturday, I decided to do a little shopping.  I was just going to Target to pick up a few things, but the little voice in my head said, grab a camera Kirsten.  You never know what you might find out there.  I felt a little silly, but I grabbed it on my way out nonetheless.  On my drive home, while stuck waiting on a train, I happened to see a sign for a free antique car, and airshow. I had just picked up a bunch of expired Fuji Velvia 100F film, and was eager to see what it might do. Soooo, I followed the sign out to the Academy of Model Aeronautics and shot around for a bit. These aren't great, but I had fun, thanks to the little voice reminding me to follow rule number one.

Beautifully Damaged

I have FINALLY gotten around to getting that damaged roll of film developed.  After loading it into a new canister to be taken to the lab, I was certain that nothing was going to come out.  The black paper taped to the outside of the clear canister the lab tech put it into months ago just didn't seem light tight enough, but it was!  I was pleasantly surprised to receive these little gems.  Now if I could only remember what I soaked them in to do this kind of damage!

Yes, I am alive. No, I was not abducted by renegade squirrels; though I'm sure I might have gotten some good pictures if I had been.  My cameras have been sitting untouched, gathering dust in anticipation of my return to normalcy.  This past weekend I finally got in some shutter-time.  These are a couple of shots from a toy camera, (Action Sampler) I picked up a few moths ago.  This was my first time playing around with the new little gadget. I think this camera may be a keeper this summer.
