film

It’s cool, it’s retro, and there is the surprise of waiting until it is developed. And it makes you focus on technique and finesse, not just taking 50 pictures and choosing the best one. It is more about capturing the moment, and letting that moment tell the story.

– Shawn Psarris  [on film]

dorinda? i love dorinda!

november 14th was dorinda’s wedding.  now they are mr. and mrs. greg and dorinda beeley.

i took most of these with film, in my 35mm slr.

waiting for greg!

peeking in at them between the partition and the wall.

^dorinda and sharlena

dorinda’s bridesmaids were her sisters, charlessa, susan, and lucinda.

bridezilla!

the ideal version of this picture would include greg and dorinda kissing by the sign.

during the reception we all pinned clothespins on the single men.  and sam won with 36.  he got the garter.

we threw wheat on them as they ran out.

goodwill.  craziness of tons of people. trying on things over my clothes because of the lines for the dressing rooms.  finding sweet deals.  everything being 50% off.

flea market.  barely getting there and buying vintage luggage because i just had to have it.  staying around this one booth because it had all the cool vintage stuff.  paperdolls, letters, cards, envelopes.  spanish money.

a.w. perry museum.  going through an old house.  being reminded of greenfield village.  sack races.  petting zoo.  horses, chickens, goats, bunnies.   some old(er) ladies tell us about spinning and grinding corn and coffee and about the courting candle. old russian ladies telling us that we should pick the pomegranites after we already had.

amy coming home.  hearing about esoal and feeling for her and her bruises.

old town antique store.  old maps.  70% off a ton of stuff.

taking tons of pictures.

best bookstore in the world

the bookstore, called Recycled i think, is on north locust street in denton.  it’s in an old opera house.  it’s really mazy, like the antique store in downtown carrollton.  but more so.

so this week my aim is to take photos on a roll of film… with only  my fisheye lens on.  yeah.

road map.
