into the light [more film]

while the days are surely getting longer and it is later in the morning when ethan exclaims "the sun is coming up, mama!" and later in the evening when he asks "is it dark outside, mama?", there is still something special about all the darkness that comes with this season. i will always remember this winter as the one we started eating our dinners (and sometimes breakfasts) by candlelight, or oil lamp-light. the one when i decided i'd better use up all those beautiful candlesticks i've been holding onto for all these years (i think i still had one pair a friend gave to me in high school!), saving for that special occasion. realizing that every meal we sit down to together as a family is special. and savoring them as much as i possibly can.

days in the life

so i didn't do very well with my attempt at shooting one roll of film each month last year (even though i do have a whole roll from way back in my former life of august and september that i never got around to posting here...) but i am still making an effort to shoot more film because oh lord. when i look at these, i wonder why i even bother taking digital photos at all. of course, i know why i do, but still. these photos make my heart swell. even the ones of my messy kitchen counters and dusty staircases (i'll share those next time; there were too many good ones from this roll to share in one post).

film forever. and ever and ever. amen.


(shot on an olymus om-2s and processed and scanned by old school photo lab. i forget what the film was, fuji i think)
