10 on 10: August

This 10 on 10 is all film (sooc).  We were all over the city on this day with meetings and much promised side trips for the kids.  A good blend of work and play!

The day began in the backyard.

Savored the sprinkles at the local donut shop (I made a promise days ago).

Ventured downtown.

Showed a little love to the new independent bookstore in our city.

Bought tickets for the Soldiers & Sailors Monument on the circle and played with the Diana F+ red scale film 120mm.  The monument takes you WAAAY up high to lookout over the city.  The kids were enthralled…aaaand we discovered my son may have a fear of heights.

On the street.

Pre-meeting.  The kids are incredibly patient with sitting through my work meetings.  Dry erase boards and the iPad are key.

Homeward bound.  Reflections.  She caught my eye.

This was our day.  Work and play and life all blending into one.  I’m thankful my kids have been able to tag along as much as possible this summer.  There can be a lot of chaos involved, but a lot of good shared experiences as well.  And I always love the street…always, always.  [Nikon F4 Kodak Portra 400, IlFord 400] [Diana F+ Red Scale 120mm]

And you know what else I love?  This lady! Go check her out!!

  3. Yes. i think film is your thing. Those first two shots — I just lingered and lingered and lingered on them. They have the perfect colors/feeling. Love the whole set, really. Great work.

  7. As a fellow height fearer… I feel for him. I love the last shot… so great.

    • Oh Jessica! It was unreal….we got all the way to the top…he walked around…and very slowly said, “I. I think. I think I’m afraid of heights. I think I don’t like this.” It’s a tight, tight space also…which didn’t help. No tears, though. We just didn’t stay very long.

  10. Love the one of your daughter hanging in the tree. And that independant bookstore is to die for. I love bookstores, the way you feel as you browse and the smell of the books… my happy place. x

  11. good grief, those first two shots are amazing! i love that you are taking film and running with it, you have a way with it, that’s for sure.

    i have a fear of heights, as in full blown panic attack kind of fear. it didn’t hit me until my mid twenties. it’s really unsettling. henry had it mildly when he was younger but seems to have overcome it (and bea, well, she’s fearless). maybe m. will be the same.

    your new local bookstore looks like somewhere i could get lost in for a while. nothing beats an independent bookshop.

    can’t wait for the next round of film!

  12. I love all of these, they are just SO rad. But especially the book store one. That could be a post card or something really great, because it is just so perfect.

  13. Film is so you. How about an entire 10 on 10 on film… Huh? Push. Push.
