Last week Geoff noticed that our Yashica Electro camera still had some film in it, so we decided to go for a walk and finish off the roll. I'm trying to get over my reluctance to take portraits, and luckily Geoff isn't as camera shy as I am. I'm happy with this one, even if I cut off his head -- it almost has that "standing in front of a blue screen" look that portrait lenses create (but without actually using a portrait lens).
Geoff's bag is from Wood & Faulk; it was his Christmas present from me. It feels good to give someone a present that is so wonderful.
As much as I love this camera, which has taken some really nice pictures, we've decided to offer it (and a few others including a brown SX-70) for sale at the Love & Rummage show at The Workroom on February 6. Our camera collection has gotten out of hand.
Claire * Lola Is Beauty, herecomesthesun, Miss Crowland, Prosecco, lavelle, jlee, Grace, Tana, blorange dice, Lizard, seaing, If Jane, a cat of impossible colour, Bantik, Julia, kater, mina: I'm glad you enjoyed my suggestions! I agree with some of you that it's always wonderful to come across a new blog.
Elle :: Diana Mini Love: Of course! You're very welcome. All the best to you as well!
Siubhan: I'm glad you like them! Oh, I do a lot of mindless skimming myself, but I feel that sometimes there might be a lot of mindless posting on the other end (not from either of us, of course!). I spent a good portion of my day yesterday fixing up improperly hyphenated Italian words, by the way.
Lexie, Little Boat: I'm so glad you said that because the reply system has been slowing me down! But the idea of community reaffirms my decision to do it and keep at it, even if some people find it unnecessary!
IRIS: Thank you for your recommendations! I didn't know Celluloid Mon Amour, but I am a big fan of Blue Hour.
Elise / broom people: That's funny -- I find that the writing is often secondary to the photos. Your outlook is refreshing, although I 100% agree with you. Oh and thanks for the video link! I shall have to check it out.
SJ: Oh, I know! That's what makes it so insidious! And yeah, I just unsubscribed to a few this morning, realizing that I would just skip past them and even feel annoyed when I saw new posts listed! Not good.
Ashley Ording: Of course! Thank you for always being hilarious & adorable!
wildflowers: I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for saying hello.
Stephanie: You're welcome! Your latest pictures are glorious.
Bre: I'm glad you like the list! And haha, yup, medieval studies. Dropped out of journalism school to study Latin. I'm a FREE SPIRIT like that (also someone who wastes money).
hila: Oh Hila, I didn't mean for it to sound bad! I have friends who I'm intimidated by; definitely a "it's not you, it's me" thing that says more about my own self-esteem than anything you project! And you are most welcome. I love your blog!
taf: Ha! Sorry? And thank you, that's sweet of you to say!
ailsa: Thank you for that! Hello.
katy: You're welcome! The blog world needs a little more of your bad-assery. I don't think anyone has ever been jealous of my degree before, ha! I really loved working on it.
Claudia Cifuentes: You just have to do your own thing and be true to yourself! That's what I tell myself, anyhow.
Maggie: You're welcome! That is so sweet of you to say. Oh, you are definitely not the only one! I have spoken to so many different people about that issue, including people who you would never imagine as having a bad day, ever.
