HAPPY HALLOWEEN

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? I was FLOWER POWER over the weekend! I wanted to share my costume with you, I was really happy with how it turned out.

And for the second time, we’ve found previous tenant’s treasures hidden in the dark modge podged nooks and cracks. Yesterday while cleaning out a closet, I found this gem hidden behind an air duct!

Widelux Wonder!

My test run of the Widelux…

Conclusion: Light leaks, blurs, nicks and scratches aside, I love this camera!

Past Lives.

Somehow I was lucky enough to inherit my Great Uncle Art’s (The handsome man in the plaid suite) collection of personal photographs. They document many family vacations, celebrations and life on the farm. There are way too many to share all of them, but here are some of my favorites…
