out and about

April 27, 2010

. . . . . . .

i’ve been out and about lately … with the warmer weather, less time is spent at home and indoors and more of it is spent outside. and i love taking my Lomo LC-A with me when i leave the flat, since it’s compact and fits in my pocket. i’m really enjoying the lomo shots i’m getting. i have a new type of film loaded in the camera now and i am going to cross-process it … looking forward to that.

also, i’m going to be contributing to “words to shoot by” – head over there to see interpretations of the word RIPPLE this week. such talented photographers! i’m happy to be involved.

finally, i have been listening to josh ritter’s new album on repeat for the past 24 hours. in some ways, i think josh is my favorite singer/songwriter. he is honest and true and his songs just blow me away. and no matter how my music taste may change from year to year, i always listen to a lot of josh. in 2008, i saw him perform outdoors in a small venue (photos here) and it was magic. i’m going to miss him on his upcoming tour sadly, but if you can get tickets to one of his shows, you must go. (you can thank me later)

have a good day!

    Love the street art, I have just posted about a wonderful Australian street artist on my blog.

    Yep. Love the street graffiti too. It has a Banksy look to it. Could it have been?

    Care must be taken to gush only just enough (not too much), but coming here almost every morning is like waking to find a little surprise parcel has been left for me — with pretty pictures on top but goodies inside that often are the loveliest treats of the day. And you make it all look and sound so easy. Thanks, Brian.

    Yay for the Josh love! I second Stephanie’s nudge about his Daytrotter session – most excellent. I plan on spending some time tomorrow streaming his new album. I’m seeing him in Chicago in 3 weeks. He’s one of my favorite live shows.

    i LOVE all of these photos and love that you’ve been able to enjoy some nice weather over there this spring. it is such a hopeful time of year:)

    Oh, the last photo of the tulips by the door is just lovely, so sweet and simple. I wonder who they are for? I wish we could know the story.
    And yes indeed, the new Josh Ritter album is beyond fantastic. Every time I think I’ve picked a favorite song on it, another one comes on and I can’t decide.
