Who else is excited for this?

Worldwide Pinhole Day is April 24th this year. Easter, I know. Its kind of a hard holiday to go running about setting up pinhole photos, but this year there is some leniency--the pinhole day website is allowing photos to be taken between April 23rd and May 1st. Still, a few Easter shots might be nice.
I'll be dusting off my home-made pinhole cameras and getting my Diana F+ all ready for that time frame as well.

It finds you in the smallest details of life

"I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not some place you can look for...
     it finds you in the smallest details of life." 

Thanks to this lovely young lady, of For the Easily Distracted (someone else with camera crushes!) I found out about a little friendly competition going on here. (The above image is my current entry, although I may add another one before the end of the day.)
The rules are posted here by our lovely competition hostess. Her blog, "See me everywhere" is pretty and a fun read.
While I would sure enjoy a Sprocket Rocket camera, I'm happy to just see everyone else's take on the theme. So many wonderfully lovely images to drool over. 

Back from a while away

I've been traveling and thinking and planning and house and garden fixing, and all of those things have kept me busy and away from my blogs. I want to consolidate things, but for now, I have to admit that I am having the hardest time whittling down my blogs. So, for now, this one continues. I want to keep a fun experimental blog going, and for now this one is my best answer to that desire.
So the good news is that I had a lovely holiday to my childhood homeland. The bad news is that my Polaroid 350 decided to rebel and I didn't get one shot out of it. The other goodness (because I hate to end on bad news) is that my other cameras cooperated, and I have a few scanned and ready to start sharing, and others that I have yet to get developed.
Lots and lots to share from beautiful Texas coming up.
For now, here's a Polaroid:
