a few black and white photos..

Last night, I was on Polyvore looking at sets when I found something pretty funny:
"I grew up in a college town, and one Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trickortreater—but what was in front of our open door—was another door! Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said “Please knock.” So we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc, who proceeded to coo over our “costumes” and tell us we were “such cute trick or treaters!” One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house. "
I thought this was really quite funny and would so love to do this some time - maybe this year :)

November last year, I took some photos on a camera that I borrowed from school - not a digital camera or anything, but one where you have to use film, correct the lighting and the focus and wind it before you take the photo. I love these cameras so much and sadly I don't think they're manufactured anymore! But what I love about them is that you can control what you would like to focus on and there's something nicer about it than the standard 'point and shoot' that we get with digital cameras these days..
All of my photos were taken around the house - in the backyard and out the front on the driveway - and feature Bailey, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Usually, she doesn't like being photographed but for some reason, on this particular day she was being a bit of a poser :)

I'll post some more photos that I've taken, mainly from last year, and some paintings I've done :) Today I'll be taking more photos so hopefully I'll be able to post them soon too :)
