Sarah and Andy!

I had a dream last night that you called me. I've been thinking of you lately, as I've decided to go back to school next to get my teacher certification--yay! But I can't remember for the life of me which school you went to, Sarah. Oh my forgetful brain! I can't seem to find it on the Internet either. So anyway, in my dream you told me what school it was, but when I woke up, I promptly forgot again. Arh!

where are you two?? i hope you're having fun.

love you
nicole

ps i met a couple from switzerland on their bikes recently. they are going to india and back through africa for two years!

Prof. Lipsett is interested in studies of gender formation among non-elites as well as elites, those people about whom we know much less because they did not have the resources or clout to commemorate and study themselves, generally speaking.

Roman households were much broader than we conceive of in modern terms, with a wide spectrum of people connected by family and employment living under one roof (the terms domus/eikos/ikea capture this idea of an indiscriminate household…

A Few More in Kodak 400 Ultramax from the Summishica

These are actually my faves from that roll:






Summishica + Velvia 50 = :-0

I was happy with some of the images I got on Kodak with this lens/camera combo; the ones of the Japanese Maple leaves were my favorites, and I loved how the two red peony photos came out.

But.

The finer grain and richer colors of the Velvia took me to another place. You have to remember that, when I was taking these pictures, I had no idea how they would turn out. Because the TL-Super meters through the lens (TL standing for, "through lens," natch) I was pretty confident that they would be metered okay, and I could see through the prism that at least something was going to be in focus, but beyond that it was really a wing and a prayer. You can judge for yourself how things developed:
