i took these with my hasselblad.
i'm happy with the quality of the images, but jeez, it gets expensive developing film.
three rolls of film (twelve images on each roll) cost $42 to develop/scan.
that's $1.28/picture.
& out of the 36 photos, i really love only 14 of them.
= not really worth it.

i'll still keep it & use it for special picture projects or fun occasions/trips.

still nothing will replace the thrill of picking up your film.
i actually try & not look at digital pictures until i get home & upload them to the computer.
nate & i argue about this often, haha, b/c he loves to look at the pictures asap.

here are a few of my favorites.

this past weekend, our friend moses rode his bike to montauk. 100+miles. jamie his fiance, nate my hersbernd & i got a car + a bunch of snacks & met him there. we had a few stops along the way, and actually spotted moses riding along the way.
in montauk, we were greeted with free coconut waters and free ice cream cones! hell-oo. fun.
we spent the day at the [gloomy] beach. & had dinner at harvest on the water. (their site sucks, the restaurant is actually nice)
 i have a couple rolls of film from my hasselblad, and was gonna hold off on this update, but eh-- so what, you'll see a few more pics of montauk next wk, can't imagine you'll complain.
ok. bye guys. entertain me, please... i'm feeling under the weather, and just laying on the sofa.
see? even crazy green juice vegan health nuts get sick sometimes. someone sick, literally, coughed in my face, so i blame them.
ok bye.

meyer lemons

nate's parents have a meyer lemon tree in their backyard. the lemons this tree produces are the best lemons, ever.
they're sweet & really juicy.
yesterday we were awakened by the postman [rang our doorbell].
i asked nate if he was expecting anything from his parents, he said "no, i don't think so"
we opened the box & it was full of meyer lemons!

one had a little nibble on it from our nephew :)
i've been making juices in the mornings for the last few weeks, so i instantly added one of them to our juice! it was de-licious! [it's red b/c i put a beet in it]
i'm really into juicing right now & eating raw foods. not only raw foods, but just adding a lot of them to our diet. fresh salads, wraps, juices & fruits. i've read a lot of things from raw foodist, that i don't fully agree with... a lot of them will encourage you to stop eating everything that is non raw/vegan and to only eat raw. i don't completely agree with that, i think you should simply add more fresh whole veggies into your diet, instead of focusing on eliminating foods.
idk! that's just what i'm doing.
i feel like the more fresh whole foods we will eat, the more we will want them.
mmm. kale, cabbage, green onion, avooocaaaddoo, garbanzo beans, a lil' shredded nori, topped with toasted sesame & pumpkin seeds. dressed with evoo & a touch of tamari sauce.

we spent yesterday at prospect park. (my new banner picture) tossin' the ol' foozball & frisbee around. we were much better at tossing the football, we decided the frisbee was super cheap & crappy & that's why we were both pretty bad at it. (right?!)

this picture really made me laugh, b/c i was silently mimicking the weathercasters (?) for nate's entertainment & only afterward did we notice that guy looking at me with disgust.

dark chocolate with toasted almonds & sea salt...who woulda thought, salt & chocolate could be so good together?

we ended the day with a trip to TJs, it's in a huge old bank, with high ceilings... just massive. 
lucky for us it wasn't packed (as it usually is) & there was barely a line. 

here's a short lil' clip i made.
nate made the pretty music that's in the background a little while ago, it's a song in progress...maybe it'll complete & you'll hear it one of these day in full.

got another song done the other day, have a listen if you'd like.

been so busy lately, this is my first chance to actually post that.
i planted some veggies and herbs, once they develop a bit more you'll get some visuals.
been walking around a ton, enjoying the beautiful weather. (while it lasted, rainy and 50degrees today)

we ate at quintessence in the  east village (where i want to live)the other day. YUM.
raw, vegan food, i kept saying it was the best food i've ever tasted.
i got the indian platter (surprise surprise) it was amazing, i really couldn't believe it was raw
and tasted like it wasn't. bought some raw chocolate from the next door store. ate it within 3 days... which is rare for me to eat candy like that...but i don't know if it's really candy....

  k. that's it for now. headed to see some stand up comedy in williamsburg(where i want to live).
