It's Hip To Be Square

Aside of the fact that I look like the girl from The Ring, these came out quite well.  The Mamiya performs best in well-lit settings, but I am getting the hang of it. 


I LOVE shooting film.  It's my favorite kind of photography... but it is also the least practical and the most expensive, so I take photos with my DSLRs and my phone on a daily basis, and I go analog once or twice a year when I feel I want to treat myself.  
These are my favorites from a roll I shot over the course of the past six months.

Kids, Cats, and Chasing Light, part 1739

There's a lot of cat-kissing going on in our household.

Daddy Day

This past Sunday was Father's Day and we spent it hiding from the heat at home and cuddling.


Climate change means that the weather is getting more extreme (as an attempt by Nature to level the playing field which was disbalanced as a result of human activity), so even in Paradise-like places like Northern California things are getting weird.  We drive hybrid and electric cars, we use solar panels, we recycle religiously, and we keep it local and sustainable, but the damage we've done in the past and catching up to everyone.  If you think it's bad that one week, in June, it's 60 degrees and the next it jumps to 90, then imagine how Island countries are dealing with floods, storms, and loss of vital resources like sea food that's been chased away or killed by industrial over-fishing and the warming of the ocean currents.  You and I, we can go to the beach and cool down.  People in other places face month-long draughts.  Privilege is something to be aware of and never to be taken for granted.
We are currently experiencing an early summer heatwave here in the Bay…
