We bought a house. It was used.

_DSF2938The best photo of the day doesn’t show the house much. See the flowers hanging on the window? They’re plastic. First to get thrown out. Taken by our realtor using the X-Pro1 and Jupiter 8 Soviet lens.

Fat-Ass Trail Half

_55A5594Since I couldn’t do the Granogue 10k due to injury, I was able to hang out at the local club’s half-marathon. Great day for a race—warm and the snow was heavy—wish I could run.

Fair Hill Cross

Scan-141112-0009My wife got me a Sprocket Rocket for our anniversary. It’s a blast to let loose with. It might work better using color with tighter framing. I used Tri-X at box speed. Unfortunately my Xtol was stale and I had to salvage these from extremely thin negatives.
