Another family birthday! My Dad. This first shot was snapped on the Pentax. Dad and I were having a film-digital camera showdown, which subsequently ended in a draw. ;)
My sister found this one in the archives. There is something about seeing photos of your parents when they were young. A side of them that still exists deep down, but isn’t easy to see. Though I never knew my dad at this age, I look at this photo, and it feels familiar.
And whoda thought this kid would grow up to have six daughters? Ha! Love you, Dad.
You know the opening scene of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians? People walking their dogs, and each dog owner has an uncanny resemblance to their pups? Really one of the greatest opening segments in any Disney film. (And of course, it’s on YouTube.)
While we were out in Atlanta, we spent some time with a family that owns this gangly, peppy labrador. This dog is Naomi’s match. Her dog-erganger, if you will. Though she doesn’t own this dog, they really hit it off.
Oh, and it’s Naomi’s birthday today! So I thought I’d share it. Happy birthday, Nomes!
That depth of field, though.
Both photos shot on the Pentax 67, Kodak Ektar 100 film
Oil Change // Pentax 67, Kodak Ektar
I take a lot of photos of Jordan. He’s gotten a bit more patient with me as I figure out the ins and outs of film photography. This was the first photo I snapped with my Pentax 67. Jordan was spending the evening changing the oil, and I was anxious to test out my new camera. And, well? So far so good, I think. I’ll be sharing more from the Pentax this week!
Took me a bit, but I finally have some film to share! I suppose when it comes to the 35mm format, I tend to shoot portrait over landscape. Not sure why, but I’ll try to change it up a bit more for the next few rolls. Here are a bunch of shots from our friendcation in Florida!
(Side note- I was a bit panicky when I sent in this roll, I was pretty positive it was exposed to some light. BUT I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really mind the light leaks that happened at the end of the roll.)
Light leaks ain’t so bad, after all.
Stay tuned for more photos from Florida, Atlanta, Kentucky, and, of course, Utah!
Summer’s in full swing over here! While this isn’t a proper weekend post, I just wanted to at least drop in and say hello. Had a blast at Girl’s Camp last week! Got back on Friday, and my weekend consisted mostly of sleeping. But we did manage to ride the Frontrunner train for the first time and get some sushi with friends. We are on a sushi kick right now, but I don’t mind…
P.S. I should get back a few rolls of 35 and 120 film (from the Pentax!) any day now. Can’t. Wait.
This week has been a bit busy, hence the radio silence on this end. We have been building video and photo content for work, tagging along on photo shoots and doing some filming. We shot up in Salt Lake and up Provo Canyon. Our photographer is actually the same that Jordan and I used for our wedding. He’s shifted away from shooting weddings, and has a pretty awesome portfolio, check him out!
This weekend, I’m running a relay half marathon with my sister that I’m slightly nervous about. It’ll just be a 7-mile run, but I haven’t been running much lately. And I don’t want to be too beat afterwards, because I also need to get ready for Girls Camp! AH!
Next week is our church’s camp for all girls ages 12-18. So I will be up in the mountains, no internet or cell service. It will be a crazy week. And I’ll miss Jordan. No surprise there… But hopefully I’ll find the time to send in some film that’s been waiting to be developed, so that’ll be ready for me when I get back!
Our campsite was nestled deep in the canyon, off a dusty road, a chilly river rushing beside it. We had to trek across the river in order to reach the site and pitch our tent. But we liked the separation from the other campers. The isolation made the frigid crossing worth it. We filled up on camp food, had movie nights in the tent, and came to the conclusion that if we ever went backpacking, we would need to consolidate our camera gear. Our day hike ended up being a lot longer than planned, and that Pentax is HEAVY. But honestly, the photos almost ALWAYS make it worth it. Film, though.
We also tried our hand at some night photography-
It was a great campout. It’s funny how you can feel a sense of homesickness for a place that isn’t your home. What do you call it? Wanderlust? The mountains just keep calling us back. And we just can’t stay away.
P.S. I’ll post a few shots from our July 4th festivities in another post, and share some fun time lapses, too. Hope y’all had a happy 4th!
Long weekend. Three cameras. Camping with Jo. Fireworks. Camp food. Sounds pretty decent to me :) Bring it on, weekend.
P.S. I discovered the hashtag #thingsorganizedneatly on Instagram and I love it. Check it out.
