One of the few things that will make me smile no matter my mood is seeing pink sweet pea blossoms by the side of the road. They take me back to a time when summer was endless and unfettered; when the days were mine to do with as I wished, and what I often wished was to wander through woods and fields, always bordered with those ubiquitous pink blooms.

I've joined a group on Flickr called "52 of 2012," which gives a new assignment every week for a photo theme. I needed some inspiration/ motivation to take different sorts of pictures, and so far it's been fun.
This week's theme is "Monochrome," and when a coworker gave out these tiny cupcakes this morning, of course the first thing I did was take out my camera.
My Nikon has several color settings, including black & white, sepia, and cyanotype.
The cyanotype pic was the one I chose to post in the group page. It was fun to take pictures with all the different settings, though.
Oh, and the cupcake was yummy.

My next camera was the 110, the slim pocket camera that used film cartridges and flash cubes. Remember flash cubes?
That camera went to camp with me, where my friend Margie and I took pictures of each other taking pictures of each other. We were ten.
I had other cameras in my 'teens and twenties, some of them Kodak, some not. The next camera that changed my life was the EasyShare I bought so I could upload pictures of items I was selling on eBay.
When I bought my current camera, I gave the Kodak to a co-worker who didn't have one to take pictures of her grandchildren. I hope it lives a long and happy life chronicling the lives of those kids.
I also hope Kodak, the company, survives this setback. I used to live in Rochester, the home of Kodak, and they used to be the largest employer in town. It would be really sad to see it disappear.
What are your Kodak memories?

I received an iPad last month (I actually won it in a drawing - people really do win these things!), and one of the most fun things to do with it is play with photographs. It has a camera, and there are some fun apps that do interesting things with your photos.

The Westfield Athenaeum Library wanted local photographers to participate in its Picture Westfield project to document the city for its archives, and I signed up.
I thought it would be really fun to capture some of the great houses around Westfield. There really are a lot of them.
It was fun to walk around town and really look at all the cool houses. It'll be interesting to see what other people took pictures of!
