Snow on the Fat Roll

These photos are from Roll 11 of this year’s 52-Rolls Project. Yes, I’m woefully behind. But I’m still enjoying using my cameras and shooting film.¬†Isn’t that what really matters?

To be honest I knew this year would be more difficult than last year. I used the Film Photography Project’s Plastic Filmtastic Debonair for the 2013 52-Rolls Project and each roll with a Debonair gives you 16 frames. That’s a heck of a lot easier than 36. Or the 72 I have in a couple of different half-frame cameras. I’ve been working on those rolls forever!

I shot this roll shortly after we had snow in Arlington this past winter. I love the reflections on the surface of Poplar Pond. And I finally took a photo of that crazy looking tree stump along the trail. The bottom photo is of my beloved Pip, the most fun car ever. I miss him.

All the photos from Roll 11 are on Flickr if you’re interested in more light-leaky fun!

Saying Goodbye to Poplar Pond

I knew the move out of the Washington, D.C., area was coming. I’d lived there off and on for about 27 years. And honestly I was ready to go.

One of the things I’ll miss about living in Arlington is the excellent trail system. And the parks, too. Over the last four years of living there I got to know Glencarlyn Park and the Long Branch Nature Center. I walked through the area at least once a week. These are some of the last photos I took at Poplar Pond.
