japanesegardentsstepsIt was gorgeous this morning and I felt like getting outside with my camera so I decided to go to the Japanese Garden in Portland. The library that I work out has a free pass that members can check out so I took advantage of it! I loaded some black and white film into my Holga, dropped my husband off at work, and away I went. The photo above was not taken with the Holga. Those have yet to be developed. The photo above was taken with my Droid and enhanced with the Vignette app.

Afterward I went to Anthropologie and bought myself a cute outfit. And while I was downtown I hit Powells where I bought a couple of flash fiction anthologies. And now I am at home, writing this blog post.

It was a good day!

I took a picture of a garbage can.

Had a great time knitting at Happy Knits today with Preita! I found out her latest sweater pattern, Outlaw, is getting really good traction on Ravelry. The last time we check it was the number 3 sweater pattern over there (and 9th most popular overall!)! I am so happy for her!

While we are hanging out she took photos of me modeling her latest design, Assassin’s Creed. It was very difficult for me to give her back the sweater. I fucking LOVE it and am so going to knit this myself!

I brought my Holga and new flash so look for some color Holga shots soon.

And, yes, this is a photo of a garbage can. Taken in Portland in the alley behind Happy Knits.
