I work at my university’s health center in the health education department. Every now and then they ask me to design a quick poster or brochure. This one was (obviously) for STI testing, which isn’t the most fun topic, but I actually had a good time designing this. They just wanted something simple that didn’t look like it was made from a template. I hope I did the job! I had a bit of a hard time because there was sooo much text and not enough room for fun, but I’m pleased with the outcome (so far). Feedback is always appreciated – thanks!
Today (actually, I guess it’s now technically yesterday) was Michigan’s 175th birthday. Winter has been eerily warm thus far, so it was especially refreshing to walk outside tonight into the snow. As my friend Dylan described it, “It’s so pretty. You don’t need a hat, because even though it’s really wet and heavy, your head will look so pretty. It might look like you have really big dandruff flakes, but it’ll be pretty.” Anyway, on my walk back to my dorm we had to stop and snap a few photos, because Dylan was absolutely right – it was perfect.
I got my first roll of film developed on my new Diana mini lomography camera, and this is just about my favorite photo from the batch. I really had no clue what I was doing because it was my first time with a film camera by myself, but I’m actually really proud of the results. I love doing multiple exposures and overlapping images. This photo was taken with Lomography color negative 400 ISO 35 mm film.
I was in my friend’s room today rallying up people to eat lunch with and I immediately burst out laughing when I saw what he’d done to his xbox console. I just really appreciated that, like me, he also saw a face in an inanimate object. It’s perfect, and I adore this.
