35mm Motivation.

I took all these photos with my x-700 Minolta 35mm camera. I hadn't whipped that old thing out in ages. I'm glad I did tho, I think some of the shots came out pretty good. I shot them with Ilford XP2 Super 400 c-41 film. They will enlarge if you click on them. Now let's hope tomorrow my migraine will be gone 100% so I can go on a photo adventure again. Today I went thrifting galore and scored some good stuff. I found a T-Shirt that says "I'm #3, I don't try at all" it's perfect. I had lunch alone at Honey Baked Ham in my car while chatting to Jazmine on the phone. Last night I went down to First Friday's with Janet and Lee and then headed over to the Lost Leaf to meet up with my old friend Mone, which by the way was SUPER CROWDED, and then hit a few other places up. Now I must go walk the dogs up the big mountain. I hope you like the pics.. let me know what you think.







The sky/light was so good this day. It had just been raining forever in the desert and I drove around downtown phx and snapped a few shots. These kids were walking thru the neighborhood with their dogs and they were asking me if I had a collar or leash for one of their dogs. The one kid had some kind of speach impediment because I could not understand him at all.

Good job with a migrane! I like the empty bus stop And the first four posted. What is it about dead animals?

Great photos!

I have my grandpa's Minolta that he bought while he was stationed in Japan during some war or another. It's so old that I can't get film for it, nor is there any place that would process it. I also have a Polaroid Land Camera for the 50s/60s that I haven't been able to use yet.

Cindy, you have always been an amazing photographer...you should create a portfolio and go freelance. Are those dog statues? They are kinda creepy.
