It’s been a busy month+ for me. I went away to the beach, a week after that I attended IRCE 2013. I went to IRCE through work – and it was super awesome because I will always consider myself a student. I love learning and if it were up to me I’d Read more..
There’s an Antique store up where my mom lives and any time I know I’ll be near by I make sure I stop there. It’s the Four Winds Antique store in Middletown, NY – so if you’re ever in Orange County New York I recommend it. My mom and I stopped there Friday and I never really go in there looking for something specific but I do know what I like – old photographs, tintypes, old illustrations or postcards, jewelry, old books, old or foreign coins. Friday I found a good handful of items with illustrations:
I came across this tumblr that posts photos of random objects organized neatly. The photos are submitted by many users, with all different kinds of objects and subjects. I don’t know why but I’m so mesmerized by it… definitely an interesting tumblr to follow! Follow them here on tumblr. Take a look at some of my favorites:
It’s only been a few weeks since Instagram was FINALLY released on Android and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. During this time I’ve come across some really amazing products that work with Instagram. It’s interesting to see how 1 person had an idea to make this app and now it has snowballed into so many awesome things! What can I say? I’m a sucker for old photos.
Webbygram was built by Brenden Mulligan, who got tired of waiting for Instagram to build a web view. I’m really glad he did because the interface is wonderful! View my instagram profile here: http://webbygram.com/girloncanvas/
I had wishlisted the emera bag back and ended up getting it for my birthday! (woohoo!). I will say that it has been a GREAT bag for all my cameras and other photography items. I want to also mention that this is not a sponsored blog post and my desire to blog about this bag is because I actually love it not because I was asked or paid to.
I had been looking for a new bag for a while and when Ashley made this great blog post ALL about camera bags, I clicked every link until I found something that could work for me. I’m not too much of a girlie girl but I knew I didn’t want a traditional black camera bag – its just too boring.
This emera bag is the “Circle Print Messenger Bag“. It’s SUPER sturdy, and the strap is the same if not stronger than a seat belt. The bag is may not seem too big, and it isn’t but it does hold a lot. I currently have my dSLR, an extra zoom lens, a lensbaby, my instax camera and other small items in mine. It comes with 4 separators and they attach by velcro. All of the sides on the inside can work with the velcro. So far I have only had to use 3 but there are plenty of pockets to keep the extra one around.
The bag has magnet snaps and the cover is slightly heavy enough to fall on its own.
There are three pockets, one on the front, on the back and on the inside. All-in-all this is a great bag and has worked perfectly on trips through the city and I don’t have to worry about my camera because this bag is very strong and protects it enough. I’m very picky when it comes to my electronics… I always want to keep them safe! So if you are on the fence about getting this bag, maybe because of the price or you are not sure about it… I would say GO FOR IT. This is a bag that will last you a long time to come.

I was happy to finally attend a Creative Mornings lecture in NY this passed Friday 11.11.11 which featured the colorful Jessi Arrington. How many people can say they got to be in a rainbow parade? Guess what color I represented! See even more photos on the flickr group for Creative Mornings!
I just wanted to express my sadness for the fact that this fall’s new show The Playboy Club was canceled. Although the news is like 3 weeks old.. I’m still upset. It seems that shows set in the past can’t make it. But that is what I loved most about it! Instead of seeing iphones you get to see old fashion cameras! Some may think it is about little girls running around in a bunny costume but it’s far from it. They dealt with real drama and real issues that took place in the 60s. I only saw 3 or 4 episodes but I was hooked… I still am. I hope there is some chance of it returning on another channel… The website is still up so I captured some photos.
Speaking of costumes… Happy Halloween!!
On my vintage store adventure over the weekend I came across this vintage photo with a beautiful graphic on the back. The image is actually glued to the card. I was told this is early 1900s but no exact date really. I fell in love with the graphic, it’s gorgeous! I will be featuring this in my vintage image scans.. soon.
