Polaroids, Fujiroids and Fun


A couple of weeks ago my little family ventured out to take some pictures with the Crown. I love this camera. I keep saying it was meant for me. I feel like I was meant for it. 

I used the last of the old expired Polaroid film that I light-leaked accidentally during a swap from a camera to the holder. The effect was pretty awesome in the first picture. I like the way it came out. The "normal" colored pictures are on FP 100c. (You can purchase some here.) 


Picture shot by KG. 
You can see some of KG's work here. I love that man.

Whenever a picture comes out too dark i use the negative by bleaching the black matted [back] part of the neg and scanning
it in my Epson scanner. Just make sure to wait at least 20 minutes for the negative to dry after taking the picture. You can use
spray cleaner with bleach because it's somewhat diluted. Don't use pure bleach. The result is a lot lighter than the printed picture.


This past week we baptized Milo and invited family and friends to come to our house. He had lots of fun and had enough energy to go around. It was nice to see everyone that we haven't really been able to spend time with. Milo met many relatives that had not seen him yet. I still can't believe how quickly 6 months have gone by. He is such a lucky boy with so many people who love and cherish him so much.

October is the month when Milo started moving around on his own. He scoots [almost] crawling.
At first he was frustrated. He got used to me holding him up as he moved his little feet across the house. He gets so excited to see things that way and be independent. Scooting has made him realize that he can be sneaky and grab things we usually take away from him.  i make sure his weight isn't on his legs though.

Below is a screen-shot of a video I took of Michelangelo and I. This has been us the past few weeks.
and boy I'm tired. How adorable is he in that Batman outfit?




I will be posting more often *i promise* I'm anxious to post some charcoal things I've been working on and my newest oil painting. Thank you so much for stopping by.
