An Update

I am still working with film currently. That being said, I will not be able to digitize all my rolls of film until early June. Please stay tuned! I promise the wait will be worth it. 

March 15: Today I learned that Andy Warhol went to Carnegie Tech, later named Carnegie Mellon University. And that the setting sun can hit a cup of beer in the most beautiful way.

March 15: We started the day with waffles and a beautiful view of Pittsburgh. These two photos were taken a few minutes apart at the same exact spot, looking different ways, with two different cameras. Wacky, no?

March 15: My dad & his newspaper, best friends forever.

March 14: This morning my parents and I embarked on a six hour journey to Pittsburgh to see my brother for the first time since Thanksgiving. After first falling into tire problems and taking a detour through the repair center, we were really on our way. I must say Pennsylvania looks pretty much the same for about five straight hours. It’s quaint. It’s rural. It’s simple. It’s maybe a little bit like the South of France. Or maybe my mind is wandering too far…

March 13: I love suburbia. The man who owns this shoe store knows my family by name. He fixes the heels of my boots, shines my leather shoes, and never charges too much. And when I need my shoes fixed by a certain date he always moves things around to accommodate me.

March 12: Today I walked around Montclair, New Jersey with one of my best friends from home. We stopped into Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters as well as several other small antique shops. Saranya asked one store owner what his oldest piece was in the store and he said it was a rug that was over one thousand years old. Now that’s antique.

March 11: The best part of break is always the museum visits. Today I went to the Met to see the Charles Marville show a second time, the Guggenheim to see the Kandinsky in Paris show, the New York Public Library, and the International Center of Photography to meet with an old professor and see the current exhibits. These binge museum visits end up being endlessly inspirational for me. I get to see new art, new artists, and wander around the streets of Manhattan soaking in the new and old at every turn.

March 10: Welcome to my home.

March 9: This evening I took a little tour of the Lower East Side with my mom. I visited Feature Inc. Gallery to see my professor’s current photo show. Then, I walked around, wandering into other galleries and vintage clothing shops. Finally, I met my sister to have dinner at Sauce; the food was delicious (http://instagram.com/p/lV3PMzhPs0/). The best part of the day was probably the extended sunlight. Thank you daylight saving time.

March 8: Evidently, I could not resist photographing this cheese either. Somehow I resisted eating it though. Graham and I decided to walk through Eataly on the way to dinner in the West Village, ya know in order to get our salivary glands charged up. Inspired, we ended up eating Italian food for dinner and dessert. Luckily we spent most of the rest of the night walking between neighborhoods of New York City, digesting, chatting, and taking in the beautiful city night.

March 8: I have started to train my eye to see the values in the world, rather than the colors, which helps to get a better analog photograph. However, when I came across this display of color in Eataly I simply could not resist pulling out my digital camera.

March 8: The first day of break usually consists of errands I’ve been putting off. I dropped my winter coat off at the dry cleaner’s. I dropped my shoes off at the shoe store to be repaired. I stopped by the doctor’s office. Along the way I bumped into this lovely little Parisian table and chair set up outside a cafe. It felt so French. I couldn’t resist.

March 7: Today I finally start SPRING BREAK. The plan for the next two weeks is catch up on sleep, visit NYC a hundred times, eat a lot, and maybe even read a book for LEISURE. The possibilities are endless.

March 7: My film camera was in fact NOT broken! The roll of film I used was faulty. Luckily I have a great professor who probably saved me lots of money and knew immediately what my problem was. So, I celebrated my return to film photography by shooting a few pictures at my class’s critique, a.k.a. the best part of the week.
