alice the camera


February 15, 2012

first there was alice, my beloved nikon….

she died a swift, nonsensical, parts & defectives death.

poor alice.

next was tamara. tamara my obstinate camera. she’s fickle and temperate, and likes to hide in unknown pockets, purses and the floor of my prius.

we’re still working on our relationship, two years passed by.

we had a mediator,

t’was a glorious symbiosis. but alas our conciliator has had enough, and is retiring.

i think this means i will leap into the land of photo-i-make-zero-sense-shop…..???

brain hurting already….

wednesday happy to you m’loves.

let’s take a moment of silence for picnik please.

cloud nine weekend

January 11, 2010

oh my! don’t you just love open weekends that just melt seamlessly from no plans set, let’s see where the hour takes us to ….well isn’t this delightful and unexpected? this morning i found myself making snow angels lying in bed;  giddy still from our joyful non-events.

i think the weather played a major role in my dreamy weekend. seventy degrees, skies pale blue, just enough clouds to make it girly and scenic.

let me summarize (smile).

the beasts got an outing to the park.

football silliness at the local high school.

a presidential 40 yd field goal kick costing hh to fess up the big dough in a lost bet.

i found my new favorite nail shade.

the MOST beautiful flowers (big, fat peonies!!!!!) delivered to my doorstep

fish taco so delicious, only expletives and moans suffice.

a bubblebath or two. or four or five.

where i finally finished a nice, didn’t suck, book of short stories.

all the while green fiddlehead fragranced the house with tea, clean cut grass, and spearmint.

and as you can tell, i’m back to taking photos again. sadly, alice, at only 3 months old, was on the fritz. a lemon. i had to return her. tamra is her replacement. i’m already attached. tamra the camera is a sassy shot and hasn’t given me any grief since we’ve started courting. i think i’ve found my new dance partner.

happy monday friends!

Say Cheese

December 1, 2009

last gig bought momma a new camera. nudity would have paid for photography lessons.

renting fur in hopes i’ll osmotically channel a little diane arbus, minus the razor blades. remember, red scares me.

fingers crossed lens cap is really just gratuitous baby’s breath. whereabouts already unknown.

we’re still courting, camera and i. not even a little foreplay. snap. no love or lust. i will assume responsibility for this unfulfilling relationship. tis what i do. seize the blame!! i swagger in my ability to fall short. let me call my foul first and loudest; lest you call it afore. hey passive! it’s me aggressive, can you hang out?

i digress. camera. i’m calling her alice. the courtship continues, but we’re keeping it in a familial kingdom.
