Vintage lunch

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.

A tilted desk

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 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!
