Such a lovely weather day with sunshine and lovely shadows on the snow.

I love this little archway next to our house. I have plans to decorate it with lights this summer.

When John got back home from a trip out to his parent’s, we went for a little walk. There is a way down to the train tracks by our house, and it wasn’t too full of snow to hike it. These last two photos were taken with a Nikon FG camera using the Lomography Xpro film that I have decided I’m not terribly fond of. It was still a very lovely walk though!

I went to an opening reception for a friend’s art show. It brought me close to where I spent many college days, to streets I wandered day and night. I drove by for one quick look back.

Trying to get my Sx-70 to work again. I was scouring the internet, looking for repair guides, and trouble shooting tips, anything I could find. This was the best image I had gotten from it in a long time. (It gets better!)

Film 365 – Day 20: January 10, 2014


A little weekend get-away…

John’s company took us on this amazing weekend trip to Nisswa, MN for the weekend. We stayed at a cabin in the Grandview Lodge resort with a pretty little deck filled with snow. We quickly dubbed this the ‘cake table’.

Of course the photo is a bit blurry….it was dark, and I didn’t bring a tripod with. It was dark by the time we arrived at the cabin, and we spent a very large chunk of time before that on a bus. So it was a bit less photogenic of a day to begin with.

january 10 2 smallI was not sure what this trip would be like, but figured I should pack light. So instead of bringing my Hasselblad with, I brought my Nikon Fg-20 with. Other than really disliking scanning 35mm film, and realizing that expired Ilford HP5+ 400 film gets EXTREMELY grainy when it expires, I really do like this little camera!

The same view as yesterday’s photo, except with day light making it seem more ordinary.
