title: june 17-18

i think today felt like this for a lot of people, myself included:
rain is everywhere. we are all tired.
here's something to wake you up.
i bought a konica "big mini" 35 mm camera off ebay last night, so when it gets here prepare to see my experiments in film photography (kind of). i picked a big mini because of hiromix; it was the first camera she used. i like the look of the pictures the big mini takes--they have a certain cast to them. i want to try processing the film myself in a makeshift darkroom. i will probably end up accidentally fully exposing (or otherwise destroying) my first five or so rolls, but maybe i will get the hang of it (or just give up and take them to the rite-aid) and you'll see some results here. wsh me luck!

long answer: that's a colorful papier-mâché tree my boyfriend made me for a christmas present last year, which is sitting on my dresser in my room (which is painted a coordinating shade of macaroni-cheese orange). it is decorated with paper flowers on a string. and it brings great happy.

short answer: this thing i have..
