Two wonderful things:
#1 The pomegranate made it in the mail to Elissa!!!! Everyone doubted, but triumph! Elissa got to try a pomegranate for the first time.

#2 My book made it here in time for my final! I thought I had ordered the book with plenty of time to spare and expected it to arrive on Friday or Saturday last week. Apparently I read the deadlines wrong. It was shipped on Friday or Saturday and expected to be delivered today; the same day as my final. I was so sure that it would arrive during or after my 12:00 final. I even called FedEx twice to see if I could come pick it up at the depo. Sadly that was not an option and I had come to grips with the fact that I would only be sharing a digital version in class. However, I guess my prayers worked because it arrived about 45 minutes before class!! Miracle of miracles! Seriously!

Caid & Chloe

While I am certainly just a beginner at this whole child photography thing, it sure was fun to take pictures of these two!

Missing This

Missing warm weather & the Downtown Farmers Market today.

P.s. Does anyone agree that this is #1 the creepiest logo/sign ever and #2 an interesting location choice?


Holga negatives + Painting on the developer = too much fun!

Vandykes & Cyanotypes

Had this handed back today for full points. :)
* Please ignore the poor scan quality.

Krappy Kamera

In alternative we were assigned the "Krappy Kamera" project. Although I played with a Lensbaby and cell phone photography, my cross processed Holga 120 film won out. What better to photograph for a "krappy" assignment than "krappy" motels?

P.s. Today was my last day of classes and I had quite a few assignments handed back. Stay tuned for more.

My Documentary Photography Book is finally done!!

*Please ignore the crop marks and such, these are just screen shots.

When deciding what to document for a photography class this semester, I started thinking about my apartment complex. All of the apartments are the exact same size and layout. They have the same light fixtures, paint color, and carpet. Yet, I imagined each apartment looking so different depending on who lived there. Factors such as culture, income, interests, and even time of year might prove to illustrate individuality housed within identical structures. Being new to the complex, I decide it was time to meet my neighbors and set out to document them.
