Every once in a while we get the music playing and just kinda let ‘er rip, as much as 4 girls 7 years old and under and “let ‘er rip.” We call it the “Jungels Dance Party.” My girls are still young enough not to be embarrassed by my lack of dancing skills, but time’s ticking on that clock. So, I need to enjoy it while I can.
A couple more pictures of Lily and Stella at the Urbana arboretum. We had gone there to try and get some (a bit belated) birthday photos. It was really hot and humid and the girls were being hostile subjects. They just weren’t into it. And to be honest, I wasn’t exactly feeling the mojo either. So I broke out the film cameras and just starting shooting for fun.
This was taken inside the shade of a gazebo. It’s probably my favorite of Stella that day, but that darned sign on the left! A lack of viewfinder awareness on my part. I should have changed corners.
Lily ask to take some pictures so I let her use my DSLR while I shot with the Mamiya TLR.
Here’s the corresponding picture of me.
Stella looking odd
Okay, I’ll grant you that she is looking a bit odd in this picture. And I’ll even grant you that given the black of her eyes you could even say she looks down right freaky. But I still like this picture. To me it’s got this sort of Victorian quality that I really can’t justify or describe. It’s just what I see I suppose. I’m definitely going to mark this one for printing.
Shot on TMAX 400, 35mm.
