The last photos on my memory card from april 23rd. I took photos of the pink dogwood across
the street and my sweet plum. That was the last photo I took of her. She was sitting in the evening light while I was making dinner, watching me. Always watching me. I can still see her all over my house. I guess she is still with me in spirit.
She passed peacefully on her favorite blanket on Sunday morning, April 28th.
Our vet came to my house for the procedure. I held her paw and looked into those gorgeous
eyes and watched her slip away. We got her ashes back this week and I decorated a wooden box with pink flowers on the top. This has been hard to go through, but I'm thankful to have had her in my life for so many years. It was worth the pain. I will always love my little plum.
I went on a much needed walk in the woods the other day. It was the first time I had been out
to take pictures in a long time. April is one of my favorite months to hike in Arkansas. The wildflowers and waterfalls come to life and create a magical forest wilderness.
I also wanted to try out my new Lensbaby edge 80 optic that I got for Christmas. I was able to get a few shots that I liked with it, but I need to practice more. Most of the shots were just too blurry. I can tell that I'm going to love using it though.
Just when I thought spring was here to stay it turned snowy winter again. And I got a cold.
That's how it goes. We can't predict the seasons. I'm glad to be feeling better though. I found some film shots of springy goodness that I thought I would share. The first shot was taken with my old nikon film camera with kodak portra and the last two with my pentax k1000.
I've been thinking about shooting more film. I miss it. I've been researching medium format cameras and I think I've decided on the camera I've always wanted. My Dream camera.
The Hasselblad. Not sure which one yet?? The 500cm or the 501? Whatever I get I can't wait to hold it in my hands!
Just wanted to check in. It's been a long month. Gypsy is coming in on the last stages of her
disease, so I've been spending my time caring for her. She still eats, but I have to butter her up with
different things to keep her interested. We tried a new medicine on her a few weeks ago and she almost died. It just about did me in. She's been doing a little better since we stopped some of the meds. Please keep me in your thoughts. Letting her go is going to be hard.
