This is Evie. She is a spunky little ball of energy.
She was rescued recently by a friend of mine. The story I was told, (as well as her husband) was that she was driving down Sunrise Highway, and 3 kittens hopped out of a box over on the side of the road. This little one was the only one she could catch.
Her husband doesn’t believe the tale. It does seem a little far fetched that someone could see -much less stop for- a box of kittens while doing 70 on Montauk Hwy… But little Evie seems to have won their heart anyway, and so she has a new home, wherever she came from. Much to the disappointment of their first cat Chloe, who was feeling a bit camera-shy this weekend.
Every spring my neighborhood is filled with these fluff pink trees. Giant pink cotton balls to welcome you home every day.
Everyone thinks I’m crazy for shooting film lately. But I kinda like getting back to the basics. Besides, its going to be a while before I can afford a DSLR (I’m thinking NIkon D60or D80), so I’m going to have to get my fill of manual goodness through my Dad’s old Nikon FM. Thirty years and counting, and its still going strong. They just don’t make things like they used to, do they? 😉
I stopped by CVS today, and developed another roll of film. Mostly just silly shots, but I wanted to make sure that the problem I had yesterday wasn’t a lens or camera issue.
I am happy to report, that all 24 exposures came out free and clear of any sort of wonkiness. Is that even a word? I don’t know, but it is now. So, it seems I either got a crappy roll of film (which is most likely the case) or the kids over at Wal-mart had some developing issues.
All I can say is THANK GOD!!! I was afraid that the lens I bought through Ebay was damaged. And that would truly stink because, I gave it a physical once over, but never shot anything with it. I really should have checked it as soon as I got it, but work was so busy that I just didn’t get a chance to use it until now.
*Does a happy dance*
Here’s a shot of my cup o’java from the Pita House last night…
