|These were taken last Spring with my Diana Mini.|
My friend Diana over at Our City Lights is giving away a pack of my Polaroid cards! I felt a little red in the cheeks when we talked about it as I've loved her blog for so long now! Head on over and enter to win! If you don't already (and I know you do because you're smart!), make sure to follow her blog! You can thank me later.
It's been an incredible week. Spring, apparently, has sprung in Chicago! For those of you who live here, you understand how incredibly peculiar 70 degree weather in March is. For those of you that have been laying on the beach for the past two months, it's usually in the 40's until late April! I keep waiting for the snow storm to bring me back to weather reality but in the meantime I've been soaking up the rays.
Earlier in the week my friend Rachel and I went for a photo walk around the Lake. It was so fun. Do yourself a favor and take a peek at her work! She's a talented photographer with an infectious enthusiasm for analog photography! I took my new Mint Flash Bar for a spin on my SX-70 and am really happy with the results in already bright situations. The testing I did with it earlier in the week was indoors so I wanted to see what it would do outdoors. Still so stoked about a flash for my darling SX-70's.
Tonight I went to a Lomo meet up to hear about the new Lomography store opening up in Chicago! I am so excited, as I've been a long time fan of Lomography. Some of my friends have mixed feelings about toy cameras but you've gotta love a company that aims to promote photography as something that doesn't have to be technical to be fun! At the meet up, I met two internet friends who are in the process of creating an affordable and light weight 4x5 camera!! Their company is called Wanderlust Cameras and I'm really excited about what these guys are aiming to do! I can't wait to see how their project unfolds...and to get my hands on one of their cameras!
I can't wait for the weekend so I can get out, camera in hand, and shoot more! Hope everyone has fun outdoors this weekend. XO
