I'm sorry I don't post more here, but I can't seem to catch up. I'm very excited and nervous to have two photographs in this art show on Friday: here. I don't feel that I belong in the show, but it will be fun and a good experience. I will share the pictures after the show.
The bean in Chicago is well, a bean shaped mirror. You have to fight through the crowds to get a good picture. I took the kids and said it was a "park," so they were upset there were no swings. After arguing with them to help take nice photos, I told them to go ask the crazy guy talking to the pigeons if he would take them home for $20.
The fun part was all the wedding parties at the park trying to get the perfect shot.
From my new Polaroid camera. It takes business card size photos; my plan is to hang them up by a string when I get enough of them.
I wish they had photo booths here that were "real." All of them now print out pictures on regular paper or just look strange. These are from the zoo. I don't know what it is about these that I love so much - maybe the silly faces sitting inside makes you do?
My thing this summer is searching for old parks to photograph. We found this one today at an abandoned school. I have more to share, but had to post one tonight. If you know of any in Illinois, please let me know.
I'm more excited than I should be & you have to preorder the camera here.
I also received this Ikimono camera. It uses 110 film - the one in the package I recieved was expired, but I'm going to use it anyway. I'll post the pictures here when I finish the roll. You can buy one here.
