This is getting to be a rather fun project. No pressure, either. I am sort of documenting bits of my daily life with the Instax Printer Project. I am also finding out that my scanner was filthy, and probably the lens of my X100V needs a bit of dusting. Spot removal in post has been a major time sucker. Despite that, I am looking at photography as a fun adventure again! That is rather nice IMO.
Today promises to be frying hot – 91F or more. The house is already closed up to keep it cool – thank goodness for modern insulation! – so we don’t have to use the air conditioning. I took this image not too long ago on a considerably cooler day, and that is what I want to think about rather than suffocating heat! The plus side of the heat is flowers love it and as it is too hot and bright to go outside for strenuous activities, it is a perfect day to do things around the house, like sewing and such. Domestic life suffers in the summer around here.
The Olympus Trip 35 can be an amazing little camera – as can UltraMax film. Admittedly, I pushed the colors a bit as backlighting can be tricky. This was taken last June on an early morning walk in the neighborhood.
About 7 a.m. I looked up from the news and my coffee; the fog was slowly evaporating to give way to a brilliant morning: The sun, the fog, the trees.
Been busy with other things … but here are some daisies using Fuji Velvia 100.
I always liked the name of “daisy” – it means “day’s eye” – and these bright yellow ones certainly do cheer up the landscape.
