for the love of film

Hey remember how I used to have a film camera that I would take photos with? Here’s a roll of film I never shared, and I figured it’s about time to – moments captured from the end of summer as it transitioned to fall. There are no photos of me and a lot of photos of my unsuspecting husband (my favorite kind).

Every time I look at a roll of developed film I am inspired by the magic of it and fall in love with it all over again. The tones, the nostalgia, the not knowing what you captured until you get it developed.

I still have said film camera.
And Thanksgiving is probably a good time to whip it out again.

P.S. As always, these photos were shot manually and are unedited.

P.P.S. We just got a GoPro and have already been making the most random videos of everything. After several near-death-adventures, I figured it’s about time I start recording this stuff. And you know, life from my dog’s point of view (you bet we got the GoPro dog harness).


Fiesta La Ballona (Culver City fair and closest thing we’ll get to a Stars Hollow celebration) – after the eating of the garlic fries and before the almost puking on the Gravitron.



Street Food Cinema – outdoor movies (this one was Jurassic Park) and my new favorite summer activity. You can picnic (yes), bring dogs (yes), and watch a classic movie under the stars (everything yes). They have a million food trucks, and basically it’s just really splendid.


Look! Never Ending Story.




Road trip to Palm Springs for my birthday weekend.



Our stay at the Ace Hotel – which was all about the air conditioning, pool, and cocktails.








Apple picking – before fall started in Southern California but before all the apples were gone. Pickings were slim, and the orchards weren’t as wondrous as they were in Portland last year – but fun all the same. Apples, pumpkins, and BBQ – I will force fall until my last breath.




Chickens! Rooster! When can I have a coop already?




Anything resembling a sunflower is A-OK in my book.
