Isn't nostalgia a wonderful feeling sometimes?  A friend of mine recently posted a picture of me with a couple good friends from a party I had.  It was an absolutely wonderful time.  There were laughs, there were tears......of course the tears were shed the following morning after waking up and realizing I was no longer a youngster and couldn't hold any kind of alcohol what so ever!  Being with old friends actually made me feel young again and I truly thought I could have a few drinks without consequence.  Big mistake.  Huge.  I'm not much of a drinker anymore and even more so after this party!  Anyway, I've already gotten myself off track........ Nostalgia, that's what I was talking about.  The picture of my friends and I was taken from a phone I believe, but it had this really cool vintage look.  Like it would come out of one of the old boxes of pictures my parents have from the 70's, and it made me feel really nostalgic.  I grew up in the seventies, Go Farrah! and it just has a warm, fuzzy feeling for me.  I'm even listening to 70's music whilst doing this post.  It's so mellow isn't it?  Seasons in the Sun, Spirit in the Sky, Dreamweaver, Livin' Thing, just to name a few.  So, in the spirit of my mood, I tried to edit my photos according to the way I was feeling, and I guess I'm definitely feeling that 70's vibe.

BEWARE these photos.  A couple are truly shocking!  My favorite model, yup, you guessed it, my son, has recently discovered he can do all kinds of amazing things with his face, and he thinks he's HE-larious when he does them, and yes, I think he's pretty funny too.  That was so a run-on sentence wasn't it?  Anywho, enjoy the photos!  And if you like that 70's feeling in photos check out this photographer that still shoots film.  Yes, I said 'she still shoots film'!!  Wendy Laurel Awesome music on her site too.  Enjoy............

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
