I finally got around to developing some film I've had sitting in my holga for nearly two years... I'm not sure what happened. Shooting with film used to be one of my favorite hobbies, I think I just gave it up because it got to be too expensive when I was saving up to get my car. Either way I missed it and I'm glad to have found some more film and have started shooting again. 
The black and white's didn't turn out great, and yet I'm kinda smitten with the ones that did. They're from Rusty and Addie's wedding, which was in 2013(as you can tell by my lack of hair C:). It was a roll of b&w Sophie had given me, so it's possible it had expired before she gave it to me, but I'm not sure. For some reason the numbers that reflect on the outside of the film(it shows through a little hole so you can tell what photo you're on/what's left) imprinted onto the photos themselves, but again... I kinda like it.
The colored film is from that disastrous day on the river, where the dogs tipped the canoe and we lost many things... the camera itself got dunked into the water and ended up with some interesting results. A few photos I didn't scan had some spots, and one was crazy looking. Overall I'm excited about them and I'm ready to shoot more.
The main bummer, is that I'm not sure where to develop my film in the future. I used to develop it at Wal*Mart who sent it to fujifilm(which was risky because they lost important film of mine once...), because the price was unbeatable! $3 for a roll or 120 film! I just got these developed and it was $15.99 or something per roll. Agh. I'm going to have to shop around. I know my Mom pulled up a website for me at one point which I will probably use, but I will keep you all posted on that when I shoot my next roll.

A Walk in the Woods

The landlord to our current place keeps wanting to show our place while we're in the midst of moving out of it. I knew he was going to show it today so I tidied up extra nice, loaded up the dogs, and left to go on a hike so I wouldn't have to be around for it because it makes me super anxious. I just punched "hiking" into the maps app and went off to a cute nearby woodsy area. It was so lovely and peaceful out there, I could be totally in the moment and not worry about anything for a bit. Just giggling at the boys because I tied their leash's together and let them walk each other. Here's some cute shots of the boys and I frolicking in the lovely fall weather.

Fluffy Late Night Visitor

I really really like moths. They're night butterflies really. Still they have more then 4 legs so I don't really want them to touch me. This little cutie wandered in our backdoor with some coaxing from Jared. This isn't the first time this has happened. No idea what kind it is but look how fluffy and cute! It's my dream to see a luna moth alive, so I feel every time I see a new strange moth I'm a little closer to my goal :)

It's like a micro sheepdog! ...with 6 legs D:

We couldn't find it the next morning... I hope it turns up somewhere soon...

Feeling Strangely Sexy...

I've been a fan of MSI since Jared introduced me to them at age 15. I had a huge crush on Jared(what else is new) and I wanted to get to know him and I knew that they were his favorite band, so I asked him to burn me some cds. After a bit he finally got around to it, and I eagerly went home to listen and was like "um." haha, they're not for the faint of heart. They're fun, inappropriate, distasteful, and all around great. Then all at once I was crazy about them and was buying their cds myself at Hastings. When I moved up to Alaska I remember back to school shopping and finding one of their shirts at Hot Topic and I was so stoked. That shirt helped me catch the eye of a lot of my future friends there who were into music just as weird as I was. So since my hair is purple, it finally dawned on me to recreate the cover art drawn by the amazing Jamie Hewlett from their album Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy:

You know me, any excuse to play dress up!
