Daily Occurrences

It was a relaxing weekend here in Columbus. I walked around our apartment and took a few random shots. My makeup being left out on the sink, Desh’s toys (intact and destroyed) covering our rug, my two film cameras sitting in the bag, homemade huevos rancheros (OMG YUM), and our bed…that we probably make once a month.

Cy, You Make Me Sigh

Cy Twombly, an American artist, passed away at the beginning of last month. The news saddened me and memories flooded back to when I first discovered this magical painter that (for the first time in my life) seemed to create pieces that connected so well to my heart. To many that may seem silly but there are artists out there that changed my view of composition and technique. So for that, I thank you Cy.

Just some shots around the apartment + in the neighborhood. I didn’t notice until I was posting but that first photo matched my blog super well. Neat.
I recently snagged a Pentax K1000 off Craigslist and these are from my first roll! I absolutely love the camera. While I was dropping them off to develop, this older man saw the Pentax slung over my shoulder and said, “Is that a non-digital camera?” I said yes and his eyes lit up. He then convinced me that I could create a darkroom in my apartment. Yes, I’m investigating. If anyone has any tips, let me know! I haven’t developed since high school and pretty much don’t remember ANYTHING. Anyways, check back later this afternoon for more photos from the Pentax.

Monday Link Love

Happy August! A round up of three of my favorite things on The Internets lately.

  1. DesignLoveFest’s STYLE series. Absolutely love it.
  2. Herb and Dorothy, a documentary on Netflix Instant. It’s about a couple to lived off one of their salaries and devoted the other salary towards collecting modern art.
  3. Photographer Jonathan Canlas. His work and movement, “Film Is Not Dead,” is amazing. Ashley sent me the link to his site and I adore his work and efforts.

Photo Challenge Update

I’ve decided that the 30 Day Photo Challenge will take place in September! Since I’ll be shooting film, I’m going to start tomorrow (August 1st), finish by August 30th, and post starting September 1st. For those that want to shoot in real time/digital, you have a month to start brainstorming! If you want to post your shots here, I’ll have you upload them here through my blog (fancy, huh?). Below are the guidelines if you DO want to share your photos on my blog:

  • Make sure they are JPG format, 600 px wide
  • Feel free to edit as you like
  • No nudity or weird crap. Sorry, my mom reads my blog…I think.
  • No pressure to submit your photo every day. Perhaps just your favorites.
  • Send them by 9am EST the morning of!
I’ll repost this towards the end of August. Click here to read the 30 Day Photo Challenge and good luck to all you film lovers that will be shooting this month!

The other day, I bought the Lomography.com Groupon ($20 for $50 worth of product). I began browsing and decided that I’ll be purchasing the La Sardina! I’m so excited and even found a couple photos on Flickr taken with the camera. A little more info found on lomography.com:

 These 35mm cameras are equipped with spectacular wide-angle lens, multiple exposure capabilities, and a rewind dial—everything you need for fun-filled and thrill-soaked escapades.
