summer series – in shades of green

November 1, 2011

With the last of the chlorophyl leaching out of the trees, I thought I’d share the end of the summer series in shades of green. I love the way greens expose on film and how they differ from one film to another — from the super saturated nearly neon green of Kodak Super Color to the faded and dusty seventies look of expired film.

I don’t have much for you today in terms of words. Lately, I’ve been feeling very aware of time — I can almost hear the sand sifting through the hourglass, so quickly it is passing by. The days are getting shorter and today marks the one-month countdown of my departure. Joe and I keep trying to push the date to the back of our minds but it’s always there, lurking.

On a lighter note (because we gotta keep this shit light somehow), as a parting gift, Joe is participating in Movember this month, which means that I can track his progress from pubescent whiskers to full blown chopper (or however his facial hair doth decide to grow). How fun! My own little Mo Bro pet project. Plus, it’s for a good cause (prostates are super important). So stay tuned for some serious tachetastic action in the coming month.

And that’s all I got today, folks. That, and a song.

I give you the images I know.
Lie still with me and watch.
We laugh and we touch.
I promise you love.
Time will not take that away.

– Anne Sexton

    Lovely stream of pictures you’ve got there. And with the time you’ve got left there you’ll just have to go with the flow and enjoy every minute.Wonderful how lack of time forces you to do that which is what we should all be doing anyway.

    Oh, that black dog’s face is so sweet…I just want to kiss him! The other dog is adorable too. And YOU are adorable. I am glad that you are still trying to push the date out of the way to make room for every and all of the experiences that you can get. Do you think you will move to England eventually? Sending you hugs xo

    Truly lovely! I don’t see how digital can ever approximate the feel of film, at least not without a lot of processing.
