this photo was taken during my first trip to florida, which was for a work conference. we were stuck in a resort for 4 days, with no way to leave, and no walking/running trails outside (the humidity would have prevented any exercise anyway). and the food… the food was abundant and high in calories but not very good, so as you sat idle for hours, you felt sluggish and blech. florida, i’ll give you only one more chance to wow me someday.

eames!

poladarium
i have a photo in this year’s poladarium! i wasn’t able to get my birthday like last year, boo. so i picked april 12th instead, and submitted a very rare photo of cindy taken in new york, april 2012. it’s still one of my favorite photos, and my memory of taking the photo is still vivid. thank you again, cindy, for the lovely gift.

the submission process changed for the 2015 calendar and i made a half-hearted effort to get in. we’ll see what happens…

new! vintage christmas polaroid cards

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

ornaments!
tree!
santa!
last weekend it occurred to me that polaroids of vintage christmas items from december 2011 may be fun as holiday cards. so i rescanned them, arranged layouts, and printed a couple of each polaroid, then put them in my etsy shop. even if they aren’t popular, revisiting my favorite christmas decorations makes me happy.
