A camera that is good for the soul.
October 20th is an important key date in my life. It’s also the day I happened to start blogging, 2 years ago. All day I wondered what I would blog about… but seeing as it was a particularly challenging day and my energy seems to be lacking (perhaps because of the pregnancy, or maybe just from the fact that I seem sick most of the time these days…) I thought perhaps I would not blog about it at all.
And then my husband walked through the door with a few rolls of film I had dropped off last week for processing. And just like that, my day got a little brighter.
I’m not going to share many words, not even many photographs. But i’m going to share. Because these photographs make me happy, make me me. How a small plastic toy camera could ever do so much for one’s soul is mystery, but it is what it is.
Please note that these are bad scans of proofs – my proofs look better, but as I mentioned my energy is lacking and I can’t spend time on these tonight. I must also get back to the knitting that is calling (an adorable tiny leaves sweater for my tiny niece due in January).
The next two are from our cottage vacation at the end of August/beginning of September. I shot the kids on the tire swing so much (like crazy over shooting) because I wanted “the shot” to print for their new playroom coming this winter. I wanted a large film photograph — and I got it. So happy. I’m still waiting on a roll of 35mm that might have something fun on it too — but this one is getting printed for sure.
and finally… all encompassing ME.

p.s. for those wondering my due date, it’s January 14th 2011.
