it’s tulip time!

hey there.

let’s get back to film shots, shall we? i just realized my last two posts were digital photography, which don’t get me wrong, is totally awesome. but film has my heart. i prefer to shoot it, but i can shoot any camera really {I mean that in the least conceded way possible}.

a couple weeks ago i spent an evening at the wooden shoe tulip festival with a couple of my very talented photo friends (katie and danielle). it was a gorgeous night, but also very chilly. i am so glad i went. the light was ah-mazing! it was so cold it took most of the ride home for me to warm up again.

today i am sharing my instant photos from that evening. i took some 35mm and some hassy shots too but we will save those for another time. it’s good to stretch out the tulip bounty a bit, it’s just so much pretty. and it’s good to save a bit of color for the dreary days. {in Oregon, there are always dreary days ahead}

*before you go on, may I ask one favor? Each photo, please pause and give them a second. Give them your full attention for that second. Don’t just scroll through. Really look at them. Think of it like a museum exhibit. Thank you for visiting. And for giving each images it’s due.*

the wood bordered shots above are the impossible project PX680 american woods edition made with my polaroid 600 // the shots in-between them are fujifilm peel apart film FP-100c made with my hasselblad 500c/m.

these last four were made with the impossible project PX70 and my sx-70. this was with the film dial set to the middle. i was a bit disappointed at first cause they are so washed out but i’ve learned to love them.

they are more like paintings of what the tulip fields would look like in a dream.

thanks for visiting. see you again next week.

a new appreciation

I’ve been looking through my photos a lot lately because I recently saved all my film photos to my phone. I am really enjoying having them all in my hand. It’s also making blogging easier.

These photos are from mid-January, and initially I thought them to be too dark, too boring. Now, here in almost October, I’m finally seeing their beauty.

Have you looked in your archives lately? I bet there are some jems in there.

hydrangeas

About a month ago, Cal and I took a weekend trip to the coast with some friends. In the yard behind the house we stayed in was an enormous hydrangea plant. I couldn’t help myself, I had to shoot it. I used every camera I brought (which was about five), but I am just sharing the film photos today.

Here are a couple other scenes from the yard. It’s a lovely, relaxing place. We had a nice time there.

I hope your week is going well.
