today was camera day

I brought the ol' camera to work tonight to shoot some of the restaurant for the site. But, regular photos get boring to take sometimes.. so I went on my own tangent. I think they turned out pretty neat. 
A friend of mine always posts some really cool photos, and I asked her what she shoots with. She has a Praktica LTL.. so I went to ebay, and found a Praktica MTL for super cheap.. so hopefully I win the bid! 

I forget how much I love photography sometimes. 












I started my Cultural and Social Anthropology class on Thursday.. I have already learned so much just in the 3 hours of the first day.. I can't wait to share some of the interesting things I discover in this class. My professor told us that when he took this course when he was in college, he had so many life changing epiphanies, and it also was that class that made him decide to further an education in Anthropology. 

Also, Adam and I went to a park to eat our lunch today, and these two dudes were playing Disc Golf... (don't ask, I had never heard of it)... and they were so funny.. at one point, on of the guys just screamed out.. "HOORAY FOR EVERYTHING!"/
I have decided to try and make this my motto. 


much love.

Sounds like a neat camera! I hope you win it!

What restaurant do you work at? Somewhere downtown?

Glad that you're enjoying your class already! Hope it continues to get better.

Oh, and I LOVE your new motto! What a great saying.

these photos are so appealing to me, i really love them!

do note that north american standard film doesn't quite fit into a praktica, you have to force it in, and there's usually some tearing but you can make it work. mine can be sort of temperamental. if you don't win it, i would suggest any old nokia or canon. both would be a good call, too, and you won't have to worry about lost work. so long as you know how to work with film iso and aperture, you can get the neat, grainy effect. feel free to ask me any questions about the camera!
