cameras here and there

If you walk into my home at any given moment, you will find cameras on almost every surface.  On the table, on a shelf, on a desk.... just as long as it is out of reach of little hands.

And there's a reason to this madness.   At any given moment - I'll grab what's closest to me.  To document what I see, right there, at that time.  And when I'm heading out the door, I'll grab the closest camera that is loaded with film and carefully set it in my bag.  It's heavy, yes - and cumbersome, yes - but I almost feel as if I'm lost if I don't have at least one with me.  You'd be amazed at how film cameras are quite the conversation starters.

This weekend, the hasselblad with the polaroid back with my camera of choice.  More to share soon....

weekend in black and white

Captures from my weekend - I love when my husband comes home with wine and fresh flowers.  He cooked a wonderful dinner on Friday.  It's funny how we have reached the point where we prefer to stay in and enjoy a meal in our home.

Did I mention I'm loving this black and white film?  I'm learning the quirks of peel apart film, the results capture a little bit of "realness" for me.
