Let it Snow!

We had another three or four inches of snow last night, the lovely, light fluffy stuff that piles up on the plants, and is really easy to shovel. Which is just as well, because our driveway holds quite a lot of it! I hope to get out and shoot of a couple of rolls of film today, and get them in for processing so that I can post some nice pictures again.

Digitally disadvantaged :(

My digital camera stopped working the other day, so I need to use film. I'm lucky that I have my Mamiya RB67 and a decent supply of film.

Here is the RB being used to photograph some presents I got at the Spinners' Guild Christmas party last Friday (It had to be postponed due to bad weather). The camera doesn't have a built-in light meter (indeed, it's totally mechanical, so it doesn't even need any batteries!), so I used my Sekonic L-358 meter to measure the exposure. Also in the picture is my home made reflector panel, which I used for fill lighting. Now all I have to do is get the film in for processing.... and wait. How spoiled we have become with the instant gratification of digital cameras!

As soon as I get my pictures back, I'll post some here.

BTW, I took this pic with Maggie's 1.3 megapixel Sony :)

MJ's Marvels

Here are some more pictures I made for Maggie's sister's Etsy shop - - this time really cute handmade felt hats, neck warmers and scarves. (These pictures don't show it, but the scarves have pockets in them to keep your hands warm too!)

Sweet Goodies

Maggie's sister has been making these wonderful, unusual, and delicious goodies to sell in her Etsy store for Valentine's Day. I think they're really cute!

Happy New Year!

OK, a bit late, but that's better than never, right?

Here's a view from our deck this morning.

And one from our front porch this evening.
