Can you tell that I loved it here?

HIghland Park

I went back to highland park again yesterday, after quite a long time. I just realized that I never posted pictures from there for some reason. I am due a backup, so maybe ill find pictures of it in the spring/summer.

The park is host to a huge drinking water reservoir that people like to take walks around, for fitness and what-not. In the winter this reservoir freezes over and it's most gorgeous/bleak place ever. You have the occasional fitness enthusiast (I dont say that out of bitterness because I am hardly fit, promise) who brave the god awful cold, but besides that there's not many people around.

Its strange to think how much has changed since the last time I was here. Change for the better, I mean. It's funny how that happened over the fall and winter, which is usually the most bleak time of year for me (emotionally). Maybe I'm getting used to this weather, who'dathunk?

Oh yeah, pictures;

Silly birds, what are you doing here? You have wings, why aren't you going some place warm?





Yashica Memory Maker III






I found this ridiculous point and shoot film camera called the "memory maker 3' in a garage sale and I kept it around for a long time, shooting a few rolls here and there. I finally got around to developing the film (let me tell you, developing the film cost more than the bloody camera itself), and i'm pretty happy with the results.
I originally bought the camera because I wanted to shoot Terry Richardson-esque portraits of people (minus the debauchery) with its flash. I dont have a flash for any of my film cameras (or my dslr, not considering the dumb built in one) so this would have to do.

I hate working on dslr pictures on my super slow computer so ill be just posting more memory maker shots because film is awesome.
