Merry Christmas from all of us!

It’s about three miles round-trip from my office downtown, but the long lunch walk is well worth it.
My son exploring the innards of his generic 35mm camera (which actually takes some passable photos).

My 80-year-old camera would choose this particular frame to slip and overlap the next frame, so that the resulting photo isn’t the standard square format — and didn’t get automatically scanned and uploaded by The Darkroom. Glad I still have my trusty Epson Perfection V700 Photo flatbed scanner on hand.
Not the best camera for portraits — and I didn’t exactly get the color adjustments quite right in post-processing — but, like I’ve said before, I appreciate a slightly quirky camera. Plus, I got enough snaps with my iPhone to make up for one wonky film portrait.

What I had thought were rogue weeds around a dead shrub turned out to be suckers (or new basal growth?) from the not-quite-dead dwarf flowering almond. Beautiful display, even if it only lasted for a few days.
Somehow, I left this little gem out of my May Bloom Day post: Brunnera, aka false forget-me-not.
Seen on the Owens Corning campus in downtown Toledo.
Finally got last Fall’s four rolls of film developed! I took the Blackbird,fly out on our October date afternoon to Ann Arbor; I’d originally planned to take my Lomo LC-A, but the Lomo wasn’t recognizing fresh batteries that day, so the Blackbird filled in as pinch-hitter.
