Insight

On Tuesday afternoon, we made a very stupid mistake.

 

We thought we were making it for the right reasons;

But in hindsight…the decision was completely wrong.

We decided to adopt Mila out to a new home.

 

Mila growled at the first couple, and would not go near them…so that was a “no”.

The second woman, however, was very genuine, and Mila seemed to bond with her immediately.

So, with tears streaming down my face, I handed her over…

And away she went.

 

Despite her brief stay with us, we spent the next 24 hrs extremely sad.

Fortunately, sadness has a way of bringing things into sharp focus.

 

So last night at midnight, we realized our mistake.

We emailed the dear woman to try and get her back;

And fortunately, she understood.

(She had a dachshund, a cat, and a husband in the house, so she was not alone…)

 

This afternoon, Mila came home to stay.

And all is once again as it should be…chaos and all.

I am thankful we had a chance to correct our mistake.

The Project

It’s the sort of thing that begs for MF B&W film.

I didn’t get exactly the type of shots I envisioned…but I guess I’m happy with how these turned out.

These two are both home sick today, with a nasty virus continuing to ravage all of us here at Iftimestoodstill.

Winter is a big drag.

The Twelve Frames of Christmas

(…Already??)

Yes.  Already.

We are one of those families.

(Hey, when you have kids, you decorate early…)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In any case, to the best of my knowledge, this sort of thing has never been attempted anywhere before…especially not without some sort of safety harness.

What you have here, folks, is all twelve frames from a roll of 120 yesterday.  No, I’m not sayin’ they’re all great…but some are quite postable.

And like the great Ansel Adams once said: “If you don’t take the shot…you won’t have the picture”.

Or something like that.

Anyhoo…here they are in exactly the same order they were shot and came off the roll.  (Actually, they came off the roll in reverse, because of how 120 spools…but this is how they were shot.  Trust me.)

You saw it here first.
