Again With The Busy

So. I'm pretty busy right now. I'm coming to the end of a two-week stretch that has tested my ability to manage all of my hats at once, but I'm not quite there yet. I've been moving between photo shoots and homework and teaching and cooking and mom-ing too. Oh - and church-ing and broken-car-ing and things like that as well.
Tonight, one of my responsibilities was taking this big kid to All-County Band rehearsal.

My brain is just refusing to focus, though. I bought a new toy today. Mindy and I went to an antique store and we both bought a vintage camera. Then we went on an adventure to find film. By the time we figured out how to re-spool the film that's currently available onto the spools in the old cameras (Google, Google, Google!), I ran out of light. Besides, I only get 12 exposures, so I don't want to waste them on just anything. Consequently, my mind is very busy thinking of what, exactly, it wants to see on prints from this camera.
I have always loved the surprises that come when you develop a roll of film and it's been such a long time since I've had the pleasure. Absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder. In fact, absence can fan the flames of desire, if this is any indication. I want some pictures from this camera, like, yesterday! And you guys do too, right?
Now, I need to take some and send them off and scan them. Whew.
It may be a while before you see them.
In the meantime, I will be busy trying desperately to focus on my other responsibilities.

I do want to see pictures from that camera. I'm fascinated by that. My cousin Mark has a very old camera, takes lovely black and white photos and develops them himself. He also makes his own Mandolins and stuff like that. I like Mark.

Whose blog is this? Sorry, just felt a little like I'd run off for a second.

Praying some focus your way, I'm obviously not using it.

gosh that kid is cute! :)

Mary - I think I like Mark too!
Denise - I know, right? Crazy cute.

Is that the band room at Florida Southern?

Christy said...

Yeah - it is. Good guess! They let the All-County Band use the facilities for practices & concerts.

There's always something to be busy with, right? It sounds like a really good busy though. I can't wait to see pictures.
