I shot this one on the Blackbird Fly toy TLR while I was waiting for the sun to go down so I could get some long exposures of car light trails for my portfolio series. Aside from hearing the workers on the bridge and their raunchy jokes, it was actually quite peaceful there in the high grass with a cool delta breeze in my face. I love nature.
Sorry, that kind of ran through my mind as I remembered how much I miss blogging. I’m still without internet unfortunately, technically I’m paying for it (or will be once I get the bill), but my signal sucks so bad I have to buy a signal booster…blah blah blah long story short, I should have my precious internet connection back within the next 2 weeks. Sigh, its times like this I wish I had bought a laptop instead of a desktop.
Its also times like this that I am extremely grateful for an unlimited data plan. Since I have no internet and my external hard drive with the majority of my entertainment is packed away in a box in my moms garage for temporary storage until I finish unpacking what’s here (holy run on sentence), my mobile netflix has been saving me from many nights of boredom.
But anyway! Enough about boring crap! Istillshootfilm posted a review of the toy TLR camera I’ve been drooling over today. If anything her review only makes me want it that much more. And if you want to learn more about the TLR Blackbird Blackbird Fly you can read all about it on her tumblr…seriously I’m going to have dreams about this tonight probably. I promised myself though that I’m not buying anything photo related until I buy that film scanner I’ve been meaning to get. If things go according to plan I should be able to get it as a christmas gift to myself. :) I love playing santa.
Anyway, thanks for reading and I swear to god if it kills me, I will have internet by next payday. If its the last thing I do.
UPDATE: When I awoke from my slumber this morning…guess who had full on internet? My friend Biz had been on the phone with comcast all morning to set up the internet for her apartment and somehow my signal went from “poor” to “excellent” and voila! No booster needed! FINALLY.
