in no particular order, april 1-may 11


i've been gone so long.

i've still been taking a photo most days, i just have been too busy to post. first it was finals then family in town then going out of town then getting everything ready for my website (which is mostly up.)
and not having the internet at home hasn't facilitated things either.


i'm back now. with renewed determination to post regularly.

so, instead of trying to go back and figure out which photos i took when (especially with so many cyanotypes in the mix) i'll just post a random collection of favorites.

then we'll be back to normal.

march 30

ever wondered what i might look like with a beehive (practically) and tons of makeup?
yeah i hadn't either, but regardless, there's your answer.

my good friend and fellow photographer alisha is trying to decide whether she wants to offer large format bridal portraits, so she asked me to model for a test shoot.
she sent me off to a hair and makeup lady and that's what i ended up with; fake eyelashes and a beehive.

for someone who goes to sleep with wet hair and no intention of brushing it in the morning and barely wears any makeup, it was pretty fun.

when i got home andy said i looked like an air hostess from the sixties (reference to flight of the conchords).

however, removing the fake eyelashes and all that backcombing was not as fun.
ah the things we do for beauty.

anyway, i'll let you know when alisha posts the photos on her blog.

a bowl of tomatoes, and the first leaves of the season on one of the shrubs behind our house.

i LOVE being able to hang clothes to dry outside. not only is it eco friendly, it saves us quarters and they come back smelling amazing.

the shoes i wore to church today.

march 14, side note

andy and i teach primary, and our class was in charge of sharing time this week.
kind of scary...
i can't say i'm looking forward to the next time. at least we'll have learned our lesson not to give our kids candy beforehand.

on the upside, i had to print some scriptures out, and i dug out an awesome font from my archives (i'm an avid font downloader).

this was my first time using it, but i definitely want to find some excuses to use it again.
if you're interested, i downladed it from here.

march 14

it was glorious outside and all i wanted was to spend the day spring cleaning and planting things outside. unfortunately i only had enough time to clean the kitchen. there were, however, some sort of cool shadows and lights in the kitchen.

march 13

out the window.
