the three… umm, four… wait, five amigos?!
p.s. I spy with my little eye… a fifth pair of feet!?! :P
happy mother’s day!!
p.s. an endless film vs. digital argument…
Hi, Carson! - Firstly, great camera choice!! I’ve used several kinds of film with my AE-1 (all 35mm of course), my favorite being Kodak Portra 400 color negative film but it is near impossible to find anymore, so I’ve switched to Ilford or anything else I can get my hands on. Black&white or color is really an artist’s preference. I tend to switch off every other roll just to keep myself inspired. As far as the film speed (which is kinda like the ISO in digital terms), I generally gear towards something versatile like 400 or sometimes 100 if I expect to mostly be in bright sunlight. I’m fortunate enough to have a mom&pop type shop near by that still develops both black&white and color film, and the best part is instead of printing the photos and then scanning them, I ask to have them scanned and burned directly on a disk for me! Hope that helps. Enjoy!! - Aliona
love makes the world go ‘round…
p.s. an exclusive toast to puzzle pieces ;) bare with me for a moment if you will… while a solitary squiggly puzzle piece conjures curiosity, and a box of puzzle pieces advocates anxiety, a picture perfect match mesmerizes!!

dear mountains of creativity,
please don’t give up on me. I will soon revisit your beautiful valleys and climb your highest peaks once more!!
as it may seem, i’ve fallen off the grid a smidgen. thus, i’d like to check in and reestablish my presence and my intention. and what better way than an undeniably cliche “from where i stand” staple.
p.s. while an increase in my unexcused absences may be perceived as quantifiable evidence of my newly discovered passion for Yoga quietly overshadowing my photography practice, i assure you my intention is to find a balance, if not gracefully fuse the two life forces into one creative movement. wish me luck, as i have yet to formulate what that would look like in the concrete world. meanwhile, i am truly grateful for each and every one of my followers and hope to shower you with original material soon enough!! stay tuned!
