What ever happened to a good old fashioned pen pal? My sister sent a beautiful package in the mail the other day and included was letters written to the girls by their cousin. They were so excited for me to read & then re-read the letters to them. It brought back memories of all of the old school pen pals I used to have growing up. I guess I am a little nostalgic when it comes to times gone by. How did we ever survive without the internet, email & cell phones? I sort of miss those days but obviously appreciate technology as I am using it this very second. Well today we decided to forge a friendship with our cousin via the Postal Service. I found these cute mini envelopes on Etsy with mini butterflies to fill them with. The girls even colored mini pictures and wrote a few words.
Speaking of old school I really want to bust out our film camera and learn to work that baby. I was able to go to a class offered by Nicole this last weekend with my Momma. What I like about her photography is how clean, fresh & classic it looks. Nothing is really altered that much and she does not use actions. I hope to learn the language of my camera like that someday. Anyway a piece of the homework that was given was called a day in the life of_________. I started today by filling in that blank with a vintage green swim cap. I had to carry my camera with me all day and take photos of it where ever I went. I even have some pics of the green cap on the floor of my kitchen right where the girls took it off and left it. It was much harder than I thought it would be, especially when I tried to photograph myself in it. For now I will just be happy with the small progress I've made even if it is no where close to where I want to be. Not too bad for just a stock camera & lens though. At least the subject matter is good. Photos straight up manual from my camera (except for a little cropping action)so beware.
Dear Mr. Postman,
Pls. bring me a couple new lenses & a flash.
I don't have much money but I am familiar with the Secret,
so I am sending this out into the universe.
That is it for now.
Does anybody believe in the Secret anyway? Well it's OK to dream, right?
Help, sister where are you when I need you? Can you tell one of my girls likes to pose a little more than the other?
