back to basics

for six dollars, i'm a six-year-old again.

princess camera

i stared long and hard at this disney princess 35-mm flash camera kit at walmart. it had the red sticker with the price mentioned above, indicating that it was a clearance item. recalling my recent infatuation with lomography and my tight budget, i gave in to the "call of the wallet" and bought this non-digital, non-lomo camera...for myself.

i figured that a good photographer should be versatile, able to take great photos no matter what camera is used. i want to retrace my 35-mm roots (man, it seemed so long ago!), and i have plans of experimenting with it: maybe attach a colored cellophane over the flash to mimic colorsplashing, and maybe smudge the lens a bit to simulate lomo-ness. i read that somewhere online. call me cheap, but i call it--improvising. haha! (my sister just rolled her eyes in disbelief)


and besides, i couldn't resist the cuteness factors: pink, disney princesses, and a heart-shaped shutter button! and it all came with a 24-shot kodak film, AA battery and a square photo frame! haha! i'm a princess, too--princess "fee-yawn-ah!" i come from the kingdom of shoot-a-lot!

wonder how long this camera is gonna last with me. haha.

and what a royal coincidence, that doll in new york city just got temporarily "dethroned" by the disney princesses. heehee.
