Diana Mini Goes To NYC

My mother and I went into the city a ton while she was here.
I brought along Diana Mini.
One of the things we did was wander along the High Line at sunset.

Some of the photos are rather grainy, but I don't mind. That's what you get with film!
And next time, for sunsets, a higher ISO!

You can see so much of the city from there. Like this building:

I took this photo through the railing!

The great thing about this camera is the way you can play with light.

I love all the little light squiggles!
This is probably my favourite:

I would encourage everyone to visit the High Line, it's so beautiful.
It will be wonderful in the summer; I can't wait!

Film Camera

I recently got myself a Diana Mini. Which is an adorable tiny film camera.
Then, it snowed (as it is now) and of course, I had to go have fun.

I was taking it set so that I took half frames, which turned out pretty fun

Something else fantastic you can do, is since you advance the film, you can layer images.

Doesn't this look just like a barn in the woods?

This Saturday it was supposed to snow again,
but it missed us (in NY) and dumped it all on the South.
As in, three feet of snow in Maryland. What?
Well this winter Holland was (and still is to some extent)
covered in an unusually large amount of snow.
To celebrate that:

This nature reserve is literally a two minute walk from my house.
From this direction, you can see nothing but trees and a field.

And my father.

But from this direction:

There are tons of people skating on the pond!

A few other shots of the snow around my village:

As I previously mentioned, we went to Munster over Christmas break.
Our main purpouse in going was to visit the Christmas Markets Germany is famous for :)
The main purpose of these markets (to me) is to eat wonderful German Christmas foods.
So you'll notice in a lot of these photos, people are holding something that they're in the process of eating. Yum!

Munster is also known for it's beautiful gabled houses

And it's Cathedral

And I loved it's Christmas Decorations :)
