Alice b. Gardens

As many of you know, I haven't been physically well for months now. I am suffering from a bad allergy and still don't know what is causing it. Because of this, I haven't been doing any self portraiture and I dont really miss it...not yet, anyway. What I have been doing is shooting still lifes and flowers and falling in love with my camera and having fun spending all of the time behind the camera and no time in front of it! I didnt want to change the mood of my elle moss etsy shop, so I decided to open an Etsy shop for these pretty, still images.
The shop is called "Alice b. Gardens"...named for "Grey Gardens" and "I Love You Alice b Toklas", two of my favorite movies.
The prints are all much cheaper than at my other shop and they print just beautifully! I havent been so in love with photography for a while, and think it shows in the images. Hope you like them as much as I do. If you want to visit the store, is here:

So excited to be a flickr curator at one of my favorite blogs,  sfgirlbybay!  It took me hours to put together my list of favorite flickr images and wish I could've chosen 36 more as it was really fun and somewhat addictive!  You can find the links to all of my choices here.

Polaroid SX-70

This weekend I found an sx-70 at a resale shop and when I got to the counter to pay they told me there were more 'parts' in the back.  The 'parts' included a carrying case, 4 flash units and an unopened 2 pack of film (expired in 1984)!!
Unfortunately, the film batteries are dead and totally worthless, but I have my camera that I have wanted for years and now I just have to find some 600 film to put in it, which will not be an easy (or affordable) task.
You can get newer Time Zero film online, but its very very expensive.  May do it as a one time thing though.  If I could create an image even remotely similar in tone to Neil Krugs work, or Emilie's, I would be a very happy camper.

Here's a little sx-70 Flickr Mosaic for ya:
