Photos from my Time Magazine Camera

I found a Time Magazine camera at the Goodwill almost a year ago.
I finally had the chance to test it out using tungsten tinted film from the Lomography store.
I am thrilled with the results!! 
Below are the photos I took.

365 Project - Days 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, & 136

June 10th, Day 130:
I am loving this beautiful weather!
Lily and I walk around and enjoy the sites.
I enjoy the people, the houses, and the view of the water.
I love this place!
I took this with my Nikon P310.

June 11th, Day 131:
I love these old houses! 
When I walk around my neighborhood I always find more houses that I love.
If I could choose any home, it would probably be one of the homes in my neighborhood. 
One day, Fletch and I will get there.
I took this with my Nikon P310.

June 12th, Day 132:
I look very excited and Lily appears to be not enjoying herself. 
That is the story of my life.
I love spending my nights with Lily and Fletch.
I get very excited about leaving work because I know I am going to see them.
My family.
I took this with my Nikon P310.

June 13th, Day 133:
My wonderful partner, Fletch, visited me for lunch. 
We finished eating early so we decided to grab a snack from Starbucks.
It was wonderful spending time with such an amazing person.
He makes me smile.
I took this with my iPhone.

June 14th, Day 134:
I am loving my new job! My boss brought us bagels.
It was very sweet of her!! It really started my Friday off right. 
Sometimes a simple gesture, like bringing a bagel for a colleague, doesn't seem like a big deal. In reality, it can make someone's day. 
I love witnessing the kindness of others.
It genuinely makes my day.
I took this with my iPhone.

June 15th, Day 135:
 My older brother graduated from his MBA program this weekend and my mother and father came to visit!
Fletch and I had a wonderful time hanging out with them in Seattle.
I am very thankful to have this time with my family.
It was lovely.
We went to a fun vintage store. I will have to go again soon.
This was taken with my iPhone.

June 16th, Day 136:
I have been researching for months to find a nice DSLR camera. 
Yesterday, I found it!
I purchased a Canon Rebel T4i and I am very excited to share some new photos with you!!! 
I met up with Justin today for coffee to catch up and show him my new camera.
I had a great time with Justin and even found a new vintage camera! I will tell you more about it in another post.

365 Project - Days 126, 127, 128, & 129

June 6th, Day 126:
I love taking walks with my family. Fletch and I enjoy seeing the old houses in our neighborhood and imagining what house we will live in. I look forward to the day when we have our own place. 
I already have ideas about decorating. 
What a fun idea. 
Sometimes it is nice to dream.

June 7th, Day 127:
New job means new co-workers and new faces to my photos!
This is Becky.
We go together like two peas in a pod. She encourages me and helps me when I can't reach things.
I am really excited to continue to get to know Becky.
She is wonderful.

June 8th, Day 128:

I already introduced you to Becky but here she is again!
We had a lovely time on Saturday roaming around Tacoma.
We looked at thrift shops, ate lunch, and had a wonderful time experiencing new things.
It was an amazing day and I am thankful for my new friend.
I look forward to more days like this.

June 9th, Day 129:
Another wonderful day.
I have been feeling pretty great lately and today was no exception.
I spent the day with my dear friend, Cate.
She helped me paint my cart!
It looks very cute and I had a splendid time fixing it up.
Thank you, Cate, for such a spectacular day. 
I always enjoy the time we spend together.

365 Project - Days 124 & 125

June 4th, Day 124:
Another sunny day! 
I think we are getting spoiled with this beautiful weather.
While I do burn easily and hate heat.. I am really enjoying the weather!
I am thankful for the nice weather that allows me to get outside with my family.

June 5th, Day 125:
Fletch and I enjoyed some apple pie and ice cream this evening.
I thought it would be a good way to celebrate some good news we received.
We had a lovely evening together just resting and enjoying each other's company. 
I love nights like these.

365 Project - Days 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, & 123

 May 28th, Day  117:
It is finally sunny!!
I am so excited to bust out my summer dresses and go for walks with Lily. I am glad that I have the time to go out and walk around the neighborhood. I use that time to reflect on the day and to plan for the future.
I love days like this.

May 29th, Day 118:
Becky's birthday!!!
I am so excited to be a member of the marketing team at work and to have such wonderful co-workers.
For Becky's birthday we decorated her desk and brought in snacks.
It was a wonderful time and I am glad I could be a part of it.

May 30th, Day 119:
I can't believe the weather we are having!
It starts out a bit cloudy but then brightens up.
I am happy for anything other then rain so this weather is lifting my spirit!
Thank you, Mr. Sun!

May 31st, Day 120:
I thought that I would have a quiet evening at home alone on Friday. To my pleasant surprise I spent my evening with Becky!! It was wonderful!
Becky and I went to a few of our favorite stores and I really enjoyed spending time with her.

June 1st, Day 121:
This last weekend baby Gia came to visit!! She is growing up so fast!
I got to spend a day with my brother, Danny, his wife, Gabi, and baby Gia. It was wonderful seeing them and having a chance to visit my niece.
I wish I could be around more for her but being in a different state makes it a bit difficult.
This was the highlight of my weekend. I am happy to have spent time with my family.

June 2nd, Day 122:

New Found Glory came to Seattle and played their entire album, "Sticks and Stones"!! It was AMAZING! Fletch and I danced around and had a marvelous time.
I feel very fortunate for being able to not only go to this show but to go with such a wonderful person. Fletch is so sweet to me and I am glad we got to share the experience together.

June 3rd, Day 123:

Today I went to Starbucks with my co-worker, Becky. It was a lovely, sunny day and we wanted a pick-me-up after having the fire alarms tested all morning.
We drove with the windows down and Justin Timberlake playing on the radio.
I am really enjoying my new co-workers.
They have similar interests and are very caring, considerate people.
I had a spectacular time grabbing coffee with Becky and I am glad to have made a new friend.
Thanks dear!

365 Project - Days 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, & 116

May 22nd, Day 111:
I have been cleaning out my stuff and decided to get rid of my Nerf guns. It was difficult letting go. Fletch and I decided to have one more go. 
We took the guns out to the park and had a Nerf fight.
It was wonderful running around shooting at each other and we probably looked like idiots.
I don't care.
It is nice to let go and just enjoy yourself.
I'm glad Fletch and I can do that together.
This was taken with my Nikon P310.

May 23rd, Day 112:
It has been raining quite a bit.
I enjoy the rain.
Well, as long as I am dressed appropriately then I love the rain. The world looks revitalized. It is a place where you can walk and smell the flowers.
I enjoy the rain.
I took this with my iPhone.

May 24th, Day 113:
As previously stated, I like the rain. Only problem is I don't currently have the proper footwear so walking around too much is out of the question.
Lily has been confined to walking the front sidewalk back and forth until it clears up a bit.
On my street we have these light poles.
Normally I don't pay attention to street lighting but in my neighborhood I am always looking up at them.
I love the vintage feel to them. They make you feel safe and welcome.
I took this my iPhone.

May 25th, Day 114:
This is not the best photo of me.. I know. I wanted to show off my snazzy hair! I wanted to do a cute up-do since it has been raining and I would call this success. I ran errands and hung out with Lily but at least I was rocking a fun hair style. This was a good Saturday.
I took this photo with my iPhone.

May 26th, Day 115:
What a lovely Sunday morning. Fletch usually works when I am off. Today wasn't any different. 
On the plus side, we were able to get breakfast together. I LOVE going to Shakabrah.
It is delicious, the service is great, and I just LOVE IT! 
I didn't have a very eventful Sunday but being able to enjoy the morning with my dear Fletch made it amazing.
I took this with my iPhone.

May 27th, Day 116:
I enjoy any time that I can spend with friends. Today I ventured around town with Justin.
We enjoyed coffee, went thrifting, and ate breadsticks!
It was a wonderful time and I am thankful to have such an amazing friend.
I took this with my iPhone.
