It's February!! Woo!! Anyone else as excited as I am? Although we've still got a whole lot of cold ahead of us here in the Adirondacks, we're one month closer to spring! I can't wait to see the bloodroot poking up from the chilly soil- a sure sign that we've turned a corner & that winter is behind us! But enough spring dreaming for now! February will find me continuing to hunker down with the wood stove, planning out this year's garden for the farm, & trying to fine tune the studio to maximize space. The current state of the studio is chaos! I've started to rearrange things & try to decide what I should keep & what I can say goodbye to. It's hard to part with things sometimes, especially if they've been in your life for a long time. It's really quite a daunting task! Soon, I will need to get back to work on sewing for the farmer's markets, so the space needs to be in tip top shape!
To chase the winter blues away, I've started to go on short drives with my dogs & camera, hoping to see something worthy of getting the camera out! Sometimes we don't find anything, but the change of scenery is good for the soul. This month I'm gravitating towards the Canon 100-400mm lens. It's perfect for our little drives, because I can grab a landscape shot or get a close up!
This week's tasks include three rolls of black and white film waiting for me to develop them. Film is like magic, I swear! The thrill of waiting to see if anything that you've taken pictures of has really come out cannot be compared in any way to the instant satisfaction of digital. Although I love both mediums, film is just more fun! And you just can't recreate the beautiful look of film, no matter how hard you try.
Now, time for me to get back to work! I do hope you are all staying safe and warm out there! What are you looking forward to the most when spring finally arrives? What's inspiring you this winter? Leave a comment! Until next time, CHEERS!
