I bought new pointe shoes, so of course I just had to get a pictures of them. Before they get all dirty and mashed up. Is it weird to say I love the smell of new pointes? Yea… it probably is…
For those who care to know, they’re Bloch Aspirations. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet. I feel like the shank is a bit too stiff, and the toe box is a bit wider than I’m used to. My last pair were Gaynor Minden, but that was a long time ago. And since they’re a bit expensive, and a friend of mine works for a shop that carries these, I will try Bloch at least until I get my bearings again.
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? 😉
This is still one of my favorite photos, and one of my most popular on Flickr as well as DeviantART.
