My five-year-old son’s film camera is a no-name focus-free 35mm camera that my husband got for free years ago. At first it was a toy… but, as it turns out, this little camera takes contrasty, vignetted photos that I really love. So, I’m never hesitant to load up his camera when he asks, because I know he’ll get bored with photographing at some point, and I’ll get to shoot the rest of the roll.
I took the generic blue 35mm on a photo walk downtown back in December. These were the results.
Part of N. St. Clair St. was closed today while workers poured concrete in the mid-to-upper floors of the Tower on the Maumee (formerly Fiberglas Tower) in downtown Toledo.
We rearranged Connor’s bedroom on Monday, moving the head of his bed against the wall and putting his dresser in the corner beside it as a nightstand. He LOVES the change… but still isn’t getting to sleep any earlier for it.

This bush blooms in both pink and blue. My soil’s pH must be totally whack.
I brought my Sears 35 RF to Levis Square today, to finish off the roll of slide film I’d started this past weekend at the park with Connor. I only had six shots left, so once the roll was done, I took a few more with my iPhone.
I also enjoyed a $5 lunch from Nacho Daddy’s: two pork tamales and one barbacoa taco with everything. The taco was worth what I paid for it, but nothing special; the tamales, on the other hand, were much more moist and flavorful than most I’ve tried.
I’ve really enjoyed wandering amongst the Lunch at Levis Square crowd these past couple of weeks. The food trucks and concerts are scheduled weekly through the end of September, and I think I’m going to plan to photograph at every one, so maybe I’ll eventually be That Redheaded Lady With The Camera to all the downtown folks.
While taking a walk at the park, Connor spotted this giant stump and asked if he could climb up on it and I could take his picture. This was how he posed.
