Wild Friday night organizing negatives and prints and cataloguing film scans. Using my finest calligraphy pen to caption this print “Left to right: Jason, Black Aggie, Shooting Star Sparkle, Esme” humors me more than it should.

I hope when I see this picture I’ll remember this day that she danced around belting out Holly Jolly Christmas. Not the whole song, just the first line. Have a Holly Jolly Christmas. All day long.
Filling the beautiful quiet of winter with cemetery walks and black and white film.

Last week I spent a few days in LA for work. Before our flight back we took a day to drive up to Sequoia National Park. My husband borrowed my digital camera for the day and I shot with my Pentax K1000, a roll of cheap black and white film and a roll of Ektar (if you can’t shoot it in California…). I don’t know what I expected, or if I had an idea of this place, but it was truly amazing.
Do you see the tiny little people at the bottom? These trees. They are gigantic.
Getting this film back when she’s been gone for a week breaks my heart a little.
Foggy morning, local graveyard.
My new (oldest) camera works! Thanks Mom!
The two big categories for my life: the days before the beauty of dandelions was pointed out to me on a daily basis, and the days since.
The time, right before bed, when we talk about our favorite part of the day. Our long walk was mine. “When you told me I could give all my dinosaurs water” was hers today.
I was kind of second-guessing my decision to shoot those fire dancers on black and white film, but I love the result.
My comfort zone consists of late-day sun and f2. Hooray for easy pretty! Occasionally, though, circumstances require something a little more than that, and I’m really, really hoping and working to get better with that. Here’s to bigger comfort zones!
