the animal farm
It’s inevitable. As soon as I say that I’m going to take a break, I suddenly have an urge to blog. Reverse psychology much?
The thing is, I simply had to share these photos from my weekend in the country. I mean, who can resist squishy animals? Not I. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s not natural to enjoy mucking out farm stalls with as much zeal as I did (Kat, can I please clean out the barn and feed your animals? Plllllllease.) Perhaps a sign that I’ve been in the city for far too long and am missing nature something fierce.
It felt so good to step away from everything for a few days. To eat wholesome food and sit by a bonfire with friends and breathe in fresh air and be surrounded by animals and see stars (stars, they exist! they might be hidden by the smog and bright lights of the city but out in the country, they still speckle the sky and it’s a thing of beauty). I feel reenergized from it all and am now ready to tackle the tasks at hand… right after this second cup of coffee.
Peace out, for reals!
P.S. Things I learned this weekend– it’s very difficult to capture animals on film, with manual focus (they inevitably move as soon as you press the shutter). Also, the light leaks in some of these shots is due to me being an airhead and opening the camera when I thought its film had been fully rewound (which it obviously wasn’t). And the other shots were taken with expired film, hence the grain and darkness. Oh! The magic of 35mm!
