the gardens

In an attempt to escape the cold, I visited my local botanical gardens armed with my new Kodak Portra 400 NC film.  I wish someone had taken a photo of me manually focusing while holding a baby and running after a 4 year old!

It really is true about the quality of film (and also the fact that I am more comfortable with my light meter) – these film shots captured my heart.  More soon….
