New and old...

Here's to a new year looming- to a time of renewal, rejuvenation, reflection, and reinvention. Here's to the end of a fabulous 2012 with many reasons to celebrate, and the birth of a new year with endless opportunities to explore.  Why the title, you may ask? Well, I am the proud new owner of a Contax 645; an old camera that is new to me.  Over the past few weeks I have been playing around and getting acquainted with my new friend, and have just received the first roll of black and white film back.  Oh dear... I think I have fallen in love with this gem of a camera.

I don't normally post pictures of my husband, but if I may say so myself, I think he looks quite dashing in these shots:)

And, I don't normally let him turn the lens on me, but it's only fair... We'll have to work on his focusing a bit though ;)

Yes, there is room to grow, and there are improvements to make, but there are also some beautiful bits in there. Seems like you could say that about the past year as well...So, with that said, cheers to the coming New Year!
