I’m sitting in one of the campus libraries right now taking a break between classes (two LONG three-hour classes…ugh…), and out of the nine people that are within my range of vision right now, all nine of them are Asian.  What can I say?  We like our libraries.

Anyway, I thought I’d post up some more pics from my Minolta roll that I developed last week, since I love them so much.  Here are a few that Rick took of my parents and me when we were at my Dad’s company lake.


Aww, aren’t we cute!?  Sadly, my darling brother is missing from the picture, as he’s away at college right now.  But he’ll be back in town in two weeks for a couple shows that his band is putting on.  I can’t wait!  I ❤ my family…

Yayyy!  I’m so stoked!  I finally tested out my grandma’s old Minolta Hi-Matic 7s that I found in the closet a while back, and it works!  For some reason, all of the pictures I tried to take manually didn’t turn out. But luckily, I took most of them on automatic. Here are three of my favorites.


The first one is of a lake at my dad’s work, the second one is a picture of Rick, my wonderful boyfriend, and the third is of a cemetery across from where I attended k-2nd grade when I was a little Stephanie.  (I have a very funny memory of walking through that cemetery w/ a friend when I was little and freaking ourselves out.)  Surprisingly, quite a few of my pictures turned out, so you’ll be seeing more in the posts to come!

It’s finally in the 30’s, which sadly to say feels warm.  So, I’ve used it as my cue to start taking some pictures again.  I found my grandma’s old Minolta 7s in the closet several months ago, and finally decided to try it out.  (I was quite ecstatic to find it, btw.) I’ve only taken a few pics so far, so it will be a while ’til I get it developed.  I’ve never used a camera like this before, so I’m afraid I’m not using it correctly and that it’s not working.  I’m 19 pictures away from finding out, so I’ll be sure to let you all know the outcomes when I get it developed.  For now, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite holga film pics that I have not yet posted. Two are double exposure and one sort of only caught half the roll; but I actually like it like that.  Hope you like them!

My mom’s best friend lent me her film camera two weeks ago to finish off the roll of film we started on a trip we took last spring with my mom and her daughter to Lake of the Ozarks.  (Yay for mom-daughter road trip!)  Here are a few that I like–a couple by me and a couple by her.





Ah, I just love the quality of film pics!  There’s something about them that you just can’t get in digital.  I was interested in how different the light flare turned out in comparison with my digital.  I wonder if it is the lens or the camera/film factor. Fortunately, I can stick my lens on any Canon Rebel film camera, so maybe I’ll have to try a light flare pic with my 24-70 on it next time.

Well, back to finals studying!

I’m at the library doing everything but studying right now…thought I’d add updating my blog to the list!  Here are more of my humidity-infected photos.

PS #1–$1 bottomless coffee & tea at the new public library!

PS #2–I got all of these pics developed for free because the lady felt bad for the humidity-infection ^-^

Apparently extreme humidity has a pretty strong effect on film.  My Holga pictures turned out super blurry, but I actually kind of liked how some of them turned out. Here are a couple.  Have you ever experienced film distortion because of humidity?

Seems like I’m not the only one going through transition…

























Anyone else in transition?

This picture signifies the fact that I’m getting OLD.  I used to babysit this girl when she was five.  Now she’s all grown up!  *sniffles*

You know, it’s amazing how things change with time.  Like this tree that used to be a twig when I planted it with my dad seventeen years ago.

Or my childhood backyard that didn’t used to have a garden…

But now does…

I think I like change.  It keeps life interesting.  Most of all, I’m glad that I’ve changed.  And that I am always changing.

How have you changed?
