I loved shooting this NIGO PX70 film. Every pack has different colored frames! Can't wait to shoot more!

April was awesome!

- Tulips leapt up from the ground around every corner.
- The dull naked trees got all gussied up for the sun!
- Christopher and I geared up for our move into a duplexed house/apartment
- I fell utterly in love with the movie Drive and it's soundtrack.
- The realization that everyone uses Facebook chat instead of iChat dawned upon me, and so began an obsession.
- The Impossible Project put this awesome Nigo colorful frame film out into the world!
- I took my Spectra for a spin and fell in love (totally in love)
- I went to see Converge play with friends and felt 21 again
- Fun Lomo walks around Lincoln Park Zoo
- Poppin sent me a bunch of colorful and fun office supplies to photograph, just for fun!

The latest Word To Shoot By was "out". I shot some photos "out" of windows in our apartment. You guys don't know how excited I am to have so much natural light flooding through our windows! Our old place was on a second story that faced the "U" of the building so we only got direct sunlight for about 30 minutes every day. I'm so happy with all the windows and light we're getting now!

Shot on The Impossible Project's Spectra color film, PZ 680

Right before we packed our lives up into paper boxes and moved from one living space into another I had a little giveaway for a pack of PZ 680 color Spectra film from The Impossible Project! Things got busy 'round here and I never had a chance to announce the winner! Without further adieu the winner is:

Nicholas Rapak!

Congrats Nicholas! Watch your inbox for an email from me. 

Do not fret if you didn't win, The Impossible Project has plenty of color and black and white films to feed your Spectra!

PS- This is one of my favorite Spectra films!

I'm still playing a little bit of internet catch up! Here's Chair for Words To Shoot By. The first two images are some chairs in our new home. The last image is a group of cute chairs at the DePaul Art Museum where Christopher and I went to see some of Andy Warhol's polaroids a few weeks ago!


I'm in love with my Spectra camera. This was shot on The Impossible Project's PZ680 color film.

Annnnd I'm back. I didn't expect moving to be so time consuming! We're getting settled into our new place. I've found a place for most of our stuff in our new home, now what remains are all the little details that make a space your own, like hanging up pictures! I can't wait to do that. The previous apartment Christopher and I lived in was so small we were afraid to put too much on the wall in fear of feeling really crowded. I can't wait to put those finishing touches on our home.

We're both really loving all the space we have now, the beautiful light that floods our rooms, and the bunnies have been exploring and doing all sorts of cute binkies!

I can't wait to take photos of our new home to share once it's set up. I'm also really excited at the prospect of having some grill out days with friends during the Summer in our backyard around our pool!

I just wanted to say Hellllooooo!! Is it silly to miss the internets, because I totally did! Glad to be getting into some kind of routine.
