Here are some more images from our lovely day at the Cloisters at Samhain. Here is Rosanna next to the courtyard fountain, and both of us by a jasmine bush at the cafe garden. Most of the photos we took that day are not of each other, but they're the ones with the most character, it seems. Maybe because they have more "life" than what I consider the often-flat image one gets in digital snaps.
I am still new to using a digital camera, and the lack of artistry and control is hard for me. But hopefully I will continue to get better at it and start taking some nicer photos. It is certainly cheaper and way more versatile than my old 1964 Pentax Spotmatic.
The cost of developing and processing 35mm film these days is turning photography into an even more expensive hobby than it used to be. But what can I say? I am an analog gal in a digital world.
