One a day…Number two.

20.July 2009

The only photos I’ve taken today have been analog – I finally got a new battery for my trusty old Mamiya and, oh, I’ve got big plans for her. So, in the spirit of at least uploading one photo every day in an effort to make myself be creative at least part-time, I give you last night’s dinner. Nothing fancy, just some light buttery pasta with veg and a good, big, fat salad.

In other exciting photo news, not only did I find TWO places that have rentable darkroom space, but I also dug out my old tank and ordered up some chemistry so that I can develop my own film again! It’s been a long, long time since I did it and just reading a tutorial to remind myself how it goes made me go all misty/nostalgic. I remember so poignantly the feeling of my fingers going all puckery while washing freshly developed film combined with wafting chemical smells and everything being nice and cool and clean and dust-free. And come Wednesday (when my happy little shipment arrives) I’ll be doing it again, theoretically. I am a little nervous to discover that I’ve lost my touch or that it’s not as much fun as I remember it (as with so many foolish things we did in college), but I’m sure it’ll come back in a snap and be even more satisfying now since I haven’t done it in ages.

All this photo-Schwärmerei was brought about, in case you’re wondering, by some fun shooting in Ireland and the decision that if I’m going to have the kind of well rounded life I really want, now is as good a time as any to get started. So here we go – I’m plunging back in.
