animals on film!

Thursday, June 07, 2012

It's been so hectic around here on the blog that I haven't had a chance to share most of the photos I took while my 60D was in the repair shop. (By hectic I mean that I've been sharing oodles of other film photos and didn't want every post to be a photodump. I shared split cam photos, photos from the Cleveland Natural History Museum, Instax wide photos & photos from La Sardina) But I do really want to share some of the photos I took because I just love them so much.

So here's a small portion of photos from my T2, all of which involve animals (okay - mostly cats!)
from top to bottom. 1. Leaf and Doc sleeping. 2. The boys watching one of the regular strays eat lunch. 3. The Professor. 4. Doc trying to look cute (and succeeding) 5. Carl 6. Squid (aka Ms. Flops-a lot) 7. Zip the rooster. 8. Leaf. 9. A squirrel at the beach 10. Doc hanging out in everyone's favorite, under the record player.

I have a few more posts ready for the next few weeks featuring photos from my T2.  I'm excited to share. I'm obviously not happy that my camera broke back in April but I am so happy that it really brought me back to film. I've shot more film in the last few months than I probably did in the previous two years combined.

All of the photos above were taken with a Canon T2 (my favorite and most reliable 35mm camera) and Fuji 35mm Superia X-TRA 400 that expired in 2010.

  4. Oh I love the one with the stretching kitty and the feet!

    PS every time I read one of your kitteh posts I have to resist the urge to go out and get a kitteh of my own. The woes of being a student :(

  5. Eee! Kitty pictures are the best!!!
    I LOVE all the cats looking at the stray kitty, that's too cute!

    Also, is that like a vintage display case in picture #3? With old cameras in it? or is it a cabinet? Either way it looks beautiful!!! I'd love something like that for my vintage cameras that are currently boxed up :(

  20. The fact that there are so many cats makes me wonderfully happy. The fact that there is a barred plymouth rock rooster doubles it! I'm hoping when we move to Nashville I can FINALLY have some chickens and that breed is at the top of the list. Their zebra stripes are so pretty.
