Ten Polaroids~ Central Park Snow

What I love about Polaroid film is the notion that you only get one shot. Unlike digital where you can take hundreds on the same subject, the limitations of Polaroid film make you slow down and really be ready to capture a single image. The unexpected bubbles, uneven development, rips or tears all add character to the image. Compare these Polaroid images to film taken with a Hasselblad of the same subject in my story Central Park, Quiet as the Falling Snow~

It’s Just an Old Sweet Song~

There are those times when you come across someone’s blog and everything just clicks. You get them right away as if you were old childhood friends growing up next door to each other. That’s how I felt when a few months back when I stumbled upon Amy’s ever charming blog Old Sweet Song. Two things immediately pop in my mind, first driving down the Spanish moss lined lanes of Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah with Ray Charles’s Georgia on Mind playing and second, my affection for anything southern and vintage. I would later come to find out, like me, Amy is a Southern Belle transplanted to the Upper West Side! She got a Kitchenaid for Christmas, I got a Sunbeam! She posts wonderful recipes, art, projects, fashion, and this little series called Blogger Crush. When Amy emailed me that I was her new blogger crush I was so delighted! A charming little interview of fun questions and a different (non-photography) look into my mind which is, I think, an old sweet song.

Thank you Amy for making me feel so lucky to have people like you enjoying my work! I’d be your blogger crush any day and on the to-do list is an Upper West Side blogger meet up!
