Aaron, Connor, and I drove about 90 minutes east to attend Cousin Megan’s wedding back in October. We stayed much later than we’d originally planned, but we all had a great time — especially Connor, who thanked Megan for making his dream come true of having a dance party.
Now that the film photos are developed, here are my favorite photos from the evening.
[Taken 6 August 2016]
My son exploring the innards of his generic 35mm camera (which actually takes some passable photos).
While I was preparing to mail in my last batch of film to The Darkroom to be processed, I found an old mystery roll sitting in a basket in the dining room. So I chucked it in the mailer and ponied up $11 to see what was on it.
Last time I did that, I got 30-year-old seagull photos from when my family lived in Florida. This time, I got four-year-old photos from one time Aaron and I spent the day in Ann Arbor.
To celebrate Aaron’s 35th birthday last month, we drove up to Ann Arbor for dinner. There are (at least) two kinds of cuisine there that we can’t get in Toledo: Vietnamese and Ethiopian. Aaron chose Vietnamese.
As an aside: As we were driving from the highway to campus, a carload of college guys pulled up behind us and saw the Trek fish on our car (it’s like a Jesus or Darwin fish, but it says Trek… and has nacelles like the Enterprise). These guys loved it so much, they took cameraphone pictures of it, and were embarrassed/geeked when Aaron flashed them the Vulcan salute.
Taken at the Fertel Reception, 27 October 2007. (Happy Belated Anniversary!)
Unfortunately, the usually-trusty Olympus XA didn’t handle the lighting very well, so this is the best photo I got from the show on 25 October 2008.
Taken during my first week working downtown, over a lunch break. I hadn’t realized how beautiful downtown Toledo could truly be, if you just look in the right places.
