Awhile back I signed on to contribute to a project over at Snap It | See It. It's called 600 on a 600, and involves three Polaroid 600 cameras being sent around the world. Each photographer shoots one pack of Impossible Project film and submits all eight photos to Snap It | See It.
When I got the camera, I popped in a pack of The Impossible Project's new silver frame edition film and went for a walk. It was just after Halloween and there were a lot of decorations out.
We have three fabulous cats living with us. We adopted them from the Partnership for Animal Welfare (aka PAW Rescue) on January 1, 2003. The day they came to live with us was the best start to a new year ever!
I love taking pictures of our boys. Howie, above, is somewhat more shy and elusive than his brothers Danny and Truman, especially when the camera comes out. I try not to pop them in the face with flash if I can help it. Howie's about six months younger than his brothers and he's very sweet and has a superb singing voice.
Danny is the most ornery of the three. If he had thumbs, look out! He loves opening cupboards and he'll eat just about anything. He trills and talks a lot and is extremely observant. He's also very tactile -- he touches things with his paws all the time. He enjoys helping around the house, too. He's especially interested in plumbing and assembling furniture.
Truman, called a "plush, portly paragon" by his foster mother, is our resident cuddlebug and lap cat. We helped him to lose quite a bit of weight since he joined our household. He's quite agile for his size, and he runs through the house like a nut every afternoon. He learned how to wrassle from Howie, and he and Danny enjoy wrasslin' sessions nearly every day.
Not a day goes by that I don't think about how much I love these three cats. They went to Australia with us, they sleep with us -- and wake us up every morning whether we like it or not. They snooze on my lap while I knit or read. They're great company.
And now I'd better go feed them because they're begging like crazy for their dinner!
I have a lot of cameras. A lot. So it's no surprise that I sometimes find rolls of film half exposed in cameras I haven't used for awhile. This is one of those rolls.
These photos are from Canberra, Australia, where I lived from late 2006 through mid-2009.
I do love those gum trees!
