Analog love!

So in love with our new family camera, the Diana-mini. It has a split frame option (other mode is square!) and can fit 72 shots one one roll (not including double-exposures).

The film lab I use scanned these in diptychs. I like it. Of course I wouldn't have to print them that way, but the option is there.

I'm in love with the color saturation and quirk of this little plastic gem. It's good for the kids to handle, because it's so light and easy to hold. 

With the exceptions of the first shot (a portait of me by 3-year-old son, Kathir) and this shot of the dog, these images are from the "Upcycled Fashion Show" in which I was one of three featured designers last week at the Echo Lake Aquarium here in Burlington. Also on the runway were Mountain Ash Designs and The Bobbin. Pictured below and above in The Bobbin's lovely blue velvet dress is Lauren Carter, reigning Miss Vermont (and my co-worker).

Littlest: I've been thinking of you with this new camera. You'd love it. Let me know if you want to get together and do a photo shoot sometime. The colors are thanks to 3 things: funky plastic lens, extra red-blue saturated film stock, and a flash unit with changeable color gels.
