Lomochrome Purple, part two

Lomochrome Purple in the Autumn

When I shot my first roll of Lomochrome Purple in the spring, I thought that it was pretty interesting. But I also thought that there just wasn’t enough green around to make it amazing. I decided then that I’d need to try again in the summer for sure, but also in the fall. In the […]

Cooper Gristmill

In the beginning of August, Neil and I took an after-work trip to Cooper Gristmill, a lovely historic mill surrounded by lush trees and babbling water.

That’s why, when it became clear that Neil and I were going to be alone for two weeks in July, I sweet talked him into booking an Airbnb for ourselves for some of that time. Well, that time has come and gone, and I have the pictures and videos to prove it.

The Edison Museum

I tend to avoid taking the kids to museums, as this is the dramatic kind of reaction I usually get.  But when Aidan came home from school and told me he was writing a biography report on Thomas Edison, I suggested we visit Edison’s laboratory museum. It was an idea that was met with actual […]
