winter eyes....

through all this cold and bleached landscape, there has been pops of colour and warmth scattered throughout. I like almost everyone I know have downloaded the hipstamatic app for my iphone. And why not, it is so much fun! I am a huge fan of toy camera/holga/Diana photography, I have a vintage Diana myself, which I love to use. I love the lack of control and the unexpected results that you get in your photographs from these cameras. It is such an enjoyable process. I know that my iphone app is not exactly the same thing...but it does offer a little of that same surprise when you finally see the results of your hipstamatic images all tinted and hazy and framed in an awkward way. It's like winter magic.

a warm night of letter writing. that one sheet says 'criminal lovers', it was the title of a beautiful illustration on a card my friend was sending...and it conjured up many great images...been thinking of writing some poems based on it.

Lastly, Jaime's trunk of vintage stamps at the Love and Rummage Craft show! They were all beautiful and delicate! I can't wait to send off some letters covered in these little lovelies...though i am so torn as I also don't want to use them!
