life lately // on film

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Just a collection of film photos from the last few weeks. There are a few TIM photos thrown in there. I shot a roll with no real expectations, I just shot. I was pretty excited to get them back. I went to pick them up after watching the clock all day only for the woman behind the counter to sheepishly mutter "I sahry, I esssposed ya films." I have no idea how she did it but she did manage to not ruin three frames worth, and those three shots just so happened to be ones I really liked. I'm so bummed about it though. I shot at some super fun locations, and of such neat things. Guess that's one of the risks of not developing my own film.  Oh well.

Abandoned School // part one

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Recently I met up with Jesi to do a little exploring. We spent the day photographing an abandoned school in Cleveland. It was literally one of the most fun days ever. Not only did Jesi and I hit it off immediately, we had a blast snooping around and taking pictures. I took a ton of photos (three posts worth!) that I want to share. It was seriously just the coolest experience.
The note that Jesi is holding in the photo above was a pretty awesome find. It started with "how can you say I don't love you because I cheat on you?" It basically only got better from there...

I really hope this is something you all are interested in seeing more of on The Dainty Squid. I not only have two more photos loaded with school photos, I have photos from an abandoned church as well. I have a feeling there will be lots more urban exploring in my future.

I scored this awesome new jean jacket at TJ Maxx recently. I thought it would be quite a hunt before I found one that would replace my old one, but to my surprise I was barely looking a day before finding this one. I really loved my old jean jacket but it didn't have pockets. Moving has left me finding all kind of little things I need, like a coat with pockets for walks with Klaus. I have to have somewhere to keep my house keys and bags for poop! I'm having so much fun "decorating" this one one, finding patches and pins to cover it with. I actually ended up buying two back patches, this one and this one that still hasn't arrived yet since I couldn't decided which one I liked best. My jean jacket and some sort of striped piece, usually a dress, is essentially my daily uniform. I wonder if the neighbors have started to notice it's all I wear. ;)

I have a new affinity for sheer black tights! I went through a couple different brands before finding and falling in love with these. I don't know, somehow wearing tights feels a little bit more put together than just throwing on a dress. I wonder how long this obsession will last...

Hope you're having an excellent Tuesday!
