a few weeks ago we squeezed a bunch of valentine's day arrangements right before jetting off to lisbon, portugal for an extended long weekend. i think everything went off successfully. my only regret is not having really nice shots of the arrangements -- oh well.
i spent our trip lugging around and shooting with my film camera, a used mamiya 645D. i've been trying film more. returning home to process 500+ digital images is not fun (i've done that a lot) and likely those images would sit untouched in my hard drive. so with 16 pics and $25+ to process and scan each roll, i came back with only 3 rolls shot and 200 or so digital files. the whole "think-through-the-shot-before-hitting-the-shutter" on my mamiya certainly carried through to our digital work. i say "our" because pete used the digital camera most of the time and i borrowed it for a few shots here and there. hopefully, i can post my lisbon pictures by the end of the week.
but here are some flowers to bridge the wait. i've been doing a lot of purple work lately and thought a lively palette would provide a nice change for you and me.
|juliet garden roses, cappuccino roses, sweet peas, icelandic poppies, leucothoe and fern|
