36 Exposures

Although I don't like what the warm shades of yellow, orange, and red on the leaves represents, I have to admit it's beautiful. I'm not ready for the cold and fluffy snow, not feeling my fingers, having a red nose, and shivering from winter. After I got off work, I went to visit my friend Jo who just had her baby last month. She lives in an area full of trees and trails so we went for a walk. It was so pretty! Just the right temperature and the light was great. Before we started out on our walk I loaded my manual camera with 400 film and took my digital camera too. I focused on taking pictures with my manual Pentax and barely took any with my digital. I was surprised I remembered how to load my film because it's been about a year since I've loaded it! The only thing I'm nervous about is not having my gray card with me. I had to use the back of Jo's daughter's coloring book which was a light gray tone to meter light off of. I think I'm going to need to get my film specially processed with explicit instructions so I get the best results. I don't want overexposed pictures. It's going to be awhile before I get the film processed though. Maybe next payday.

Andrea of Super Hero Designs has launched tees and booty briefs

Heather Champ has excellent photos. As usual.

Love to actually see people draw while they're drawing? Me too.

Penelope has a cool idea to have an Illustration Friday similar to Photo Friday but with illustrations instead of photos. This week the theme is "sleep". I want to join in all the fun too. Maybe I'll post up something from the archive but I want to make a brand new illo. Hmm.

I'm selling another kid beanie to my friend for her two-year-old daughter. Another sale! It's in two shades of purple since purple is her favorite color. I'll post the picture of the hat here later but for now here's a refresher.
