Catching Up... Part 2

If you saw yesterday's blog post, you saw some of my color film photos from Thanksgiving.  After all the turkey and pie had been eaten, Tess, Mike and I headed out into the park for a quick photo shoot.  I traded the color film for black and white and we caught the last of the golden autumn light.  As you can see, we were having a lot of fun together and mostly goofing around, but I still love these photos!

Before we get to the photos, though, I have to give a huge thank you to Tess and Mike.  They didn't come to spend Thanksgiving with us planning on a photo shoot.  I suggested it and they accepted it.  We've become very close friends over the past year and I'm so thankful for how much our relationship has grown and blossomed.  I really can't think of a better day to spend with close friends and family than Thanksgiving and I can't think of better memories to have than of us in a park with a camera on a beautiful November day.

Catching Up... Part 1

I've just returned from a 4 week hiatus and couldn't be more ready to get back to photography!  What have I been doing for the past 4 weeks?  Well, there was a little holiday fun and a few nights out with friends, but for the most part Belinda and I have been working on fixing up our house so we can put it on the market.  The hard part about taking off so much time to work on the house (besides the hard work we put into the house) is not getting to take care of things as they happen!  Which is why I'm just now sharing photos from Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving?  That was a lot longer than 4 weeks ago!  I know it was, but these images were shot on film, which requires shipping, developing and scanning time.  Honestly, I didn't receive them back from my lab until the day we were leaving town for Christmas.  Since today is my first day back at work, it's really the first chance I've had to share them with you!

We spent Thanksgiving with Belinda's parents in Pueblo.  Some friends of ours, Tess and Mike, joined us for the day, which made it even more special.  I'd really been wanting to try out my new camera and fortunately everyone indulged me.

Although I definitely consider these to be test photos, I'm still happy with the results, out-of-focus photos and all!  I'm very happy with Indie Film Lab's scans and would recommend them to anyone who has some film that needs developed.

So, without further ado, here are some of the long-overdue photos!

Be sure to check out Part 2 of this post tomorrow where Tess, Mike and I head out for a photo shoot in the park.
