Some shots from my second Canon A-1 roll (Fuji pro400h). A lot of the shots were a bit blown out which was kind of a bummer. I’m currently shooting Kodak Portra 400NC so we’ll see how that turns out next weekend. If you want to connect on Flickr, add me as a contact!

 

Monday Link Love

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Monday Link Love so I bet you’re peeing your pants right now. I realized that I’ve tweeting a lot of the fun things I find on the internet throughout the week and then have nothing to share come Monday. I’ve decided to set aside 3-5 links that I REALLY want to share to keep your Monday blog browsing quick and sweet. Enjoy.

Yes A Backpack Will Work

The heavy oversized purse? Love it. But it hurts my shoulders. Small, cute clutch? Love it. But it’s annoying to hold and I drop it all the time. So, backpack. I need one. Which one should I get?

Found here, here, here and here.

Office Space

Earth tones, wood, and a random collection of inspiring things. That’s what I want my office to look like someday.

Parked

Last weekend Adam and I had a lovely day at the park. We read, played on our phones, and I taught him how to shoot with my digital SLR. He loves it! I’ve always been on the other side of the camera shooting so it was fun to be on the front side.

Homeversary

Today marks two years that I’ve been here in Columbus, Ohio and I couldn’t be happier about the city that I choose to call home. I grew up in Illinois and so Ohio never really crossed my radar until Adam got a job here before we got engaged. I’m not an expert when it comes to Ohio as a state but Columbus is exceptionally wonderful. The food culture is outstanding, it’s a city that appreciates creativity and the arts, and I still get to experience all four seasons. Win!

Happy July

Summer outtakes.

730 Day Anniversary Date

We celebrated our 730 day wedding anniversary on Monday. I started thinking of our two year anniversary in days because when people have kids, they’ll refer to their 1.5 year old as their 18-month old. I don’t really do weeks/months well so it always throws me off. And I’m bad at math so that doesn’t help. To celebrate I took a 45 minute nap at 7pm, we ate hot dogs for dinner and walked down the block for ice cream. Yeah, we’re fancy like that.

New Work

A few new pieces added to my portfolio.

Daily Occurrences

The days are pretty predictable around here. Sometimes it feels like everyone is quitting their job for something new, traveling to far off places, or having babies. Adam and I just celebrated our second wedding anniversary and after two years, it feels like a bit of a haze lifted and we were able to talk about what we really want. For us, it’s staying at our jobs, spending more time in Columbus, and paying off our my student loans (ahem, Adam had a full ride scholarship so that would be MY loan). While it might not be incredibly glamorous, it’s an adventure and I’m so happy to be sharing it with him.

As for my photos, THIRD TIME’S A CHARM! I was loading the film incorrectly the first two rolls and it was starting to rain on my parade. This third roll that I shot was more of a tester roll to see if something was wrong with the camera. The socially awkward gentleman at the camera store loaded in this third roll and even rewound it when I dropped it off so we’ll see if I can handle the fourth roll all by myself. Geez, this isn’t rocket science. I even learned how to shoot on a film camera.
