  • Holding on to Fall

    Autumn is my favorite season and it always seems to go by too fast. This year was no different. While I recognize that the leaves started to change at the end of August here, it still makes me sad that for the most part, the leaves have changed and fallen and winter is on it’s…

  • Posting Film to Flickr

    I got my first roll of color film back from the shop today and I’m thrilled to be able to start posting pics from my Rebel 2000 SLR. I’ve owned the camera since college and I’m really glad I finally know how to use it! I’m still figuring some things out, like getting the right…

  • Moo Mini Cards

    My moo mini cards arrived today! Moo mini cards and little cards that are smaller than business cards (they are really tiny!) but can be used as calling cards. Moo is the company that makes them. They are partnered with Flickr, so they automatically allow you to import photos from your flickrstream to make the…

  • It’s All in the Details

    Last night in my photography class we worked on printing and I made my first print!  Woohoo!  Going into this class I had no idea how involved it would be.  I thought that all the work was in the taking of the picture, but that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. We started out…

  • The Helmet Carrier

The man looked to be in…

  • Shooting Film

    I love my SLR. I love the click of the mirror moving out of the way, the sound of the shutter and the film advancing. I love the way the lens focuses. I like the feel of the camera; it makes me feel like I know what I’m doing, even when I don’t. I’ve always…

  • The Woolly Bear

    Jim and I spent this past Sunday at Apple Jack Orchard. We didn’t pick any apples, but we did take a lot of pictures and ate apple brats and apple pie. We stood out amongst the many families with small children, in part because we were not sticky or tending to a screaming child, and…
