Overlook at the Wright Brothers Memorial

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 ┬áin 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.

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: January 2016

Kalanchoe In Bloom, January 2016

Two kalanchoes, both alike in dignity… One remained in the sunroom over the summer, and one lived outdoors in a pot.

The outdoor kalanchoe is currently in a larger pot than the one in which it spent its summer, and is spending the winter in our front foyer, sporting a multitude of teeny greenish white flower buds ready to open.

The sunroom kalanchoe, while tall and spindly, has been in full bloom for weeks now.

This kalanchoe is the only bloom I have to share for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day this month, but hopefully I’ll have some forced forsythia and crocus blooms for February!
