WHERE AM I?

Friends

Matey

These are some pictures I took of Caity (or Matey) in St. Augustine when I visited her for her birthday. They are also in an album on my flickr, but I re-edited them to better suit my feelings for them/her.Caity on the Beach 1Caity on the Beach 2

Caity and I met on the first day of 6th grade in Mrs. Jones’s “flight” class (aka homeroom), and ended up going to the same high school so she’s my oldest remaining friend. We had some awesome times and still do when we see each other on rare occasions. She’s the kind of person that makes anything fun or amusing, doesn’t take anything too seriously, makes things happen as opposed to waiting around for opportunities, and is almost always upbeat and positive. I really miss having people like her around. Mrs. Outdoors is currently counseling at Camp Merrie Woode in N. Carolina for her second summer and loves it, apparently. That’s what she says anyway, but I know the truth is she cries herself to sleep every night because she misses me so much. Keeding! Other than that we don’t see each other (I really thought “eachother” was one word… wtf spell check?) much anymore because she’s at school in St. Auggie and I’m in school in Tallahassee. Not so bad, though, because she likes driving long distances (weirdo) and St. Auggie is nearby my parents’ house in Jacksonville! Double hoorah with knobs.

Anyway, I’m writing this friend tribute thing I guess because I’ve just realized recently how rarely two people befriend each other and really get each other, how rare great friends are. And I miss her. So I’ll be making out tributes to my handful of old friends that I really miss from now on. This friend in particular, though, is a really great example to growing girls that you can be a history nerd, video gamer, LOTR buff, camp-lover, non-shit talker, non-slut, and still be voted Most Attractive.


A roll of film stayed in my AE-1 from December 09 to today.

Finally finished off the roll of color 35 mm film in my Canon this morning. It had been in there since either December or November of last year and I’d been chipping away at it gradually, picking it up every time it felt appropriate. Got it developed and printed today, scanned and cropped them, and here they are!



Above: from the trip Christopher and I took from Tallahassee to Jacksonville two weekends ago to visit my parents, see my brother’s new apartment, and spend time with Morgan before she leaves for boot camp.


Above: yesterday at First Friday in Railroad Square. Twas rainy.

Above: Gaby breaking the plaster (maybe) mold off her cast honeycomb sculpture. These were the first pictures I took on this roll.


Above: not really sure. Random portraits. I’m thinking the one of Gaby on the floor looks the way it does because I attempted a double exposure. Don’t remember, though. Also, I don’t know why I’m getting so many light leaks…
