These lunchboxes were so colorful against all the dulled colors of the other vintage items in the shop. I didn’t know who Julia was, but I looked it up, and it’s a sitcom from 1968. According to Wikipedia, the show “is notable for being one of the first weekly series to depict an African American woman in a non-stereotypical role.”
I do, however, know who the Pink Panther is behind the Julia box! I don’t know what the third one was for, I didn’t look at it too closely, but it has horses on it.
I took this shot on my Polaroid Snap instant camera with the sepia filter. The composition wasn’t exactly the way I wanted it, but I took a similar shot on my Holga medium format film camera, so we will see if it turns out there instead once I develop it.
There’s so much potential history in this shot. A handmade quilt, a tattered teddy, and a mysterious woman in the upper left. I didn’t even see her when I took the original photo, but now every time I look at this shot, I wonder who she was and if she had anything to do with this little bear.
I took this shot on my Polaroid Snap instant camera on the sepia setting. I feel like this is a desk Beatrix Potter might have sat at. I know, I’m probably way off on the era of this, but I end up involving Beatrix Potter whenever possible.
I also took another shot of this on my Instax Wide 300 instant camera. They both have such different moods.
I found this clock nestled amongst some old books, and the two complemented each other well. It looked like the clock closed, which seemed like a good idea if you wanted to read and not be bothered by the time – there’s nothing like getting lost in a good book, especially when it has the scent of age.
I took quite a few shots of these cups – they really caught my eye the way they played with all the other blues. This shot was my favorite, slightly to the side, with all the different shapes and shades of blue, along with the hidden burst of yellow.
I brought my instant Polaroid Snap camera down to the Mukilteo waterfront. The ferry in the background connects to Whidbey Island about 15 minutes away – my most favorite place in the whole world. I wanted to capture the three main elements in this photo that make the view so enchanting – the lighthouse, the ferry, and that picket fence!
I love black and white photography. In this one, my lighthouse looks a little lopsided, but I do love the birds that came in on the upper right-hand corner!
I love the rich colors the camera was able to capture in this one. The day actually looked almost overcast to me, but here the sky looks quite blue!
