.good morning sunday :: n˚15.

N˚10 :: ghost writer

Hello friends!  It's Sunday and I hope yours is going well.  And for all of you Papas out there, Happy Father's Day!  Is anyone else having problems with Blogger?  I can't tell if the problem is Blogger or my internet provider.  I've been trying to get this post going and it's been going haywire!  Weird.  Alrighty, the list!
  • I think I may have already used the above image in another post, but that's okay.  It's my little reminder that I need to reorder some PX 100 Silver Shade film.  I kinda miss it.  It's just so flippin' expensive though!  I do want to try out the new PX 70 Color Shade Push.  C'mon The Impossible Project, I need a sale!  Mail me some coupons or something.  ;)
  • Recently, I've been revisiting the works of photographers I used to follow when I was on Myspace years ago.  Remember Myspace?  One of the photographers was a gal originally from Georgia, whose images captured the essence of young adulthood, wanderlust and carefree days.  Laura Taylor of The Darling Life is all grown up and making beautiful work!  I especially enjoyed her Polaroid albums.  
  • A friend at work told me earlier today that she had a book she really wanted me to see.  The title of the book is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, a unique novel that weaves vintage photographs of "peculiar" looking folk into the story.  The author, Ransom Riggs, is quite an interesting individual himself.  A writer, photographer, and filmmaker, he is also a collector of old black and white photos.  {a man after mine own heart}  Currently, he is working on a new book, Talking Pictures, that will be released in early 2012.  The book features many of the photographs in his collection that share just a glimpse of the story behind them.  Below is a book trailer for Talking Pictures.  Also be sure to watch the book trailer for Miss Peregrine too while you're at it.  When visiting his blog, you'll agree that Ransom Riggs is one talented and intriguing fellow!  

It's a short list today!  Getting ready for a photo shoot tomorrow.  I'll be sure to share some photos.  Have a wonderful week friends!!
