I'd say that the best feature of my new apartment is its proximity to my workplace. This morning's commute was 10 minutes, and I made it back home in about 5 minutes this evening.
Left: My new bedroom. Right: The pink tile of my new bathroom.
I've moved into my new apartment, and partially unpacked my stuff. The walls are still barren, and I'm still eating out because I haven't finished stocking the kitchen. I have connected the cable modem though, so I am able to resume posting to the website. Here's a couple polaroids of the new place.
Tomorrow morning, I'll be moving to my new apartment, and will be without a broadband connection for a short time. Due to this, there will be a short interruption in posting to this site, but I should be posting photos again pretty soon.
Here's a mirror shot that appears to be about ten years old. I can date it at least partially because of the Carnegie Mellon windbreaker that I'm wearing, and the Nikon FA that I'm taking the picture with. The mirror was at a blind corner in the road that wrapped around the back of the naval building on the campus of Carnegie Mellon.
Left: A fire hydrant just up the street. Right: A hot water heater that sat on the sidewalk for 2 months, probably because the owner never called the county for a large item pickup.
A construction site down the street from my house.
I've been enjoying putting together these Holga diptychs, and I think I will shoot some with my Holga over the weekend with an eye towards assembling some more of them.
In two weeks, I'll be moving out of my current home, and into a single bedroom a short distance away. I'm looking forward to having a place all to myself, but also somewhat scared that I'll become a weird recluse without roommates to talk with on a daily basis. A little while ago, I realized that I have never lived alone in my entire life, I've always had my family or roommates around to bother and be bothered by. In any case, here's three Holga photos of my current home, complete with all of the light leaks and imperfections to be expected in photos taken with a Holga that I've never gotten around to patching up with some electrical tape.
L to R: Melissa, Sanda and Jarriel.
Now I just need to get these guys to form a band so they can use this as a goofy liner photo. The only question is, what kind of band would they be?
I'm doing a small run of color photos now, so it seemed like a good time to post a few Holga pictures.
I think this was just prior to driving to Sheridan to fly home. I had grown a good amount of facial hair, since I hadn't shaved in 4 or 5 days, and I figured I should get a little cleaned up prior to returning to society.
Due to some health problems within the family, it looks like I won't be making it out to Wyoming this summer. I'll miss swinging in the hammock behind the cabin while reading, but there's always next summer.
