Oakland Cemetery

Hollywood_084-3.retouched


I had one more roll of film to develop from my trip to Atlanta, Georgia and only recently got around to developing it.

This image from the Oakland Cemetery was shot with my ever faithful Debonair toy camera, which my good friend Isabel Gomes of Isabel Lawrence Photography originally told me about. This camera is NOT easy to find.

The wonderful and talented Tara Kolla runs Silver Lake Farms behind her home and I once again had the privilege of shooting her amazing gardens. As you know shooting flowers is something that I love doing.  Thank you Tara.

Sneak Peek of Photo Adventure in Austin, Texas

Hollywood_083


As I was scanning the negatives from my recent trip to Austin, Texas  I was reminded why I love what I do so much.

My friend Suzi Q. Varin and I went on a photo adventure to small towns outside Austin looking for abandoned houses and old cemeteries.  Not only did we succeed the day of our adventure but the images I just scanned prove the true success of that trip.

Stay tuned for more.............

Letters of Friendship

IMG_7154

Can you tell I was busy today writing notes to friends.............

From Hill's Manual of Social Business Forms chapter on "Letters of Friendship and Relationship" (printed in 1883)
Do not fail to write very promptly to the one that is away.  Give all the news.  Go into all the little particulars, just as you would.  After you have written up matters of general moment, come down to little personal gossip that is of particular interest.  Give the details fully about Sallie Williams marrying John Hunt, and her parents being opposed to the match.  Be explicit about the new minister, how many sociables you have a month, and the general condition of affairs among your intimate acquaintances.  

I just love finding this kind of stuff...............

I have much more to share from the this great old book I recently purchased...............
