Translucent Sculptures

Painter

i've been spoiled by our fuji instax camera lately because using film encourages restraint. since i don't keep that much film on hand, i don't want to 'waste' it and love having just a few photos to process each day for better or worse.

i'm happy with the last photo because i actually spoke to the person and got the ok before taking his photo, which seemed like a good idea for fear of startling him and ruining the mural he was painting.

xo, cindy

ps i love the song summer holiday by wild nothing. it makes me want to jump in the convertible we don't own an drive up the coast.

pps the translucent sculptures are from the fashion district pilings project by brooklyn artist joan benefiel and will likely be meeting my digital camera very soon because they are so interesting.

I really need an instax and I can't pick which one I want.

yes, i know what you mean about film, shooting less and enjoying it more. i think many of us end up with thousands of not-so-meaningful digital images that end up hiding on a hard drive. this reminds me that i'd like to focus more on slowly building a small treasure of film!

i've said it before, and i'll say it many more times i'm sure: i'm so glad you got the instax!

and bravo to you, for asking the muralist if it was ok to ask for a photo. sometimes, i just can't bring myself to ask, and i lose a great shot...
