I mentioned before that I have two Kodak Brownie cameras, a Hawkeye and a Hawkeye Flash. I respooled some Kodak Portra 800 onto 620 spools and ran the film through the Brownies. This is my second roll.
It’s also the final roll of my 2014 52-Rolls Project. I made it to 40 rolls in 2013, and this year I got to 41. Not quite 52, but still not too horrible.
I’ll see you again in 2015 for my next attempt at shooting 52 rolls of film!
I finally finished a roll of Lomo X-Pro Chrome film I had in La Sardina. I always enjoy using the camera. It’s got a nice wide-angle lens, you can easily experiment with multiple exposures, and it’s lightweight and unobtrusive.
This is Roll 40 of my 2014 52-Rolls Project.
I have a couple of Kodak Brownie Hawkeye cameras that are in decent shape and I figured I’d load ’em up and see what happens. This is the Hawkeye Flash model I picked up for 25 cents. I used Kodak Portra 800 film that I respooled for use in the cameras.
The Brownie Hawkeye was my first camera and these remind me of all those pictures I took as a kid.

I saw a mention in the newspaper that intrigued me. It was the announcement of an annual event in Hammond, Wisconsin. It’s called The Running of the Llamas. I HAD to go!
Hammond is a VERY small town and the event brings in thousands of people. This year was the 18th year the race has been held. We wandered around, checked out a few vendors, ate lunch at one of two pubs, and then chose our spot for watching the races.
There was a small parade, too.
And then the races began!

I can’t get my parents to come and visit us. In all the 20-something years we’ve been married, and in all the interesting places we’ve lived, my parents have only visited once. My Mom stayed in the house a few times to watch the cats while we traveled, but both my parents have only visited once together.
But recently we DID have a visitor — my friend Janet from Rhode Island! We did a bunch of touristy stuff and had a blast. Here are a few highlights:
Well, it’s my parents’ loss. Look how much fun we have!
