So there is this tree near the house that is lit by a 5 million bazillion watt light. I’m convinced it will make a good shot. I’m just not certain how to capture it. 
I’m not certain why, but something about this images makes me think about “The Jeffersons,” the 70’s sitcom. This attempt was taken pre-dawn. I could barely see the building behind the tree, and yet it shows up bright as day in the image. The film was damaged as a pulled it from the camera. I ended up losing more than half of the films from this pack because the camera kept jamming. I found out that’s somewhat common with Fuji packs in Polaroid cameras :(
But this is closer to what I want for this image. Maybe I’m closer to success than I realize.

So there is this tree near the house that is lit by a 5 million bazillion watt light. I’m convinced it will make a good shot. I’m just not certain how to capture it. 
This attempt was a double. I thought the chaos of the branches coupled with a neatly folded stack of white tee shirts (order) would create a nice juxtaposition. The problem is that the chaos overwhelms the order (maybe that’s the statement since everything ends in chaos, right?). Regardless, it didn’t blow my skirt up. 
Iterative cycles…onward.

We had a lovely Sunday with friends. Most of the day was spent in the pool but there was an afternoon thundery monsoon that lasted a good 45 minutes. We sat around the back porch and waited.

Heirloom on Flickr.Never have I seen a daffodil like this one. Its a self-propagated descendant of the originals planted here by settlers 150 years ago.
The cars behind the daffodil, shot in a different location, were planted during the 60s. Considering how many other junk cars surround this stack I’m guessing they’re self-propagating, too.
Multiple exposure switch between pinhole and lens. I’m smitten with this camera and its red-spot light leak.
