Valentine's Day

Means a lot of things to me.

But this year, I'm focusing on the happiness it brings and the memories it brings. Memories of love, in Morocco, esp.

So, Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Share it with your loved ones, and love them lots. Love them over the top. Enough that there's leftovers until next year.

Above all, feel loved. So many people love you. You may not realize it, but it's true. There are even people you may not know personally who love you. Just soak it all in, roll around in it, enjoy it, you deserve it!

Developing and Printing

All I can say is YAY! I've developed on my own, now 3 rolls!

I was kind of intimidated at first, but I've overcome all that..
And tonight, hehe, test strips, contact sheets and mmmm, my favorite, prints! :)

I now know why Sebastian and Otto have their love for film - seeing your photo appear while agitating, now that is a feeling all photographers should feel.
I'm still a little intimidated by printing, but I know I'll get better with practice.

Anyway, another two weeks down!

Oh, btw, I have a sweet hook up at Calumet Photo.. Steve Martin, y'all! A really nice guy I know from work who got me a sweet deal on Ilford fiber based paper. Steve, you rock!

Alrighty, peeps, I need to sleep - today was loooong - I just wanted to update.

I'll be back later this weekend with my print. :D
