hi all! i've gotten a few requests to do another "what i'm loving lately" post, so i thought i'd share with you a few of the things getting some extra love from yours truly in the last couple of months.
gadgets & toys
the yashica LM! this camera was passed down from my father's father, and i finally got it repaired and cleaned up. i've only run three rolls through it so far (the film & processing costs a pretty penny), but i have already fallen deeply in love with shooting medium format.
it's an art unlike any other! very different than 35mm and digital, definitely.
instant film! a few weeks ago, i painted this box to store all of the instant film prints i have taken so far (a large majority of them from this summer alone)! i'm addicted (and my ebay & bank accounts are not loving this one)
my trusty ray ban eyeglasses. i got a new prescription a few months ago and finally filled it in these frames, and boy, can i finally see the difference. i used to only need glasses for reading and driving, but i'm finding myself reaching for them more often these days, especially in taking photos! can't live without these guys.
goodies & good deals
if you didn't know this about me already, i'm a nail polish freak. i buy it, i hoard it, but i do use it! i usually change my nail color every 3 or 4 days. essie® brand polish is absolutely amazing! it's longwearing and high quality, not to mention they have a mouthwatering selection of colors. gotta love it.
sheer blouses! they're light enough for september in california, but pretty enough to translate from day to night in a beat.
$creaming deal$ ! - these wedge booties were on sale for $39.95 at urban and i couldn't say no. they're SO comfy!
i picked up this skirt at anthropologie a month or two ago, and you're not going to believe how much i paid for it. original price: $78. on clearance for $19.99 + an additional 25% off. with taxes i ended up paying $16 and some change, and proceeded to grab my bag and run out of the store before they could realize that i robbed them.
lately, i've been feeling a special appreciation for my pup. she smiles for the camera.
she plays games on the computer
and she's always at the foot of the bed when i need her. man's best friend, fo' real.
I wanted to finish off this post with a few things I'm excited for.
fall clothing, and the patterns and colors like this:
visits to see faraway friends
p.s. for the time being, i've suspended posting photos to my flickr account! to view my current work, see my photo blog! http://maryclaireroman.blogspot.com/
