it’s been an amazing day. we did, saw, and ate so much. allie’s sleeping, but i could help but stay up and work on some of the photos we took. allie got an instax camera for christmas from me, and i’m sure she’ll post those pictures soon. her dad and i also got her the diana adapter and some diana plastic lenses for our nikons. so allie was shooting with her new fuji instax, leaving the d700 with the plastic lenses free for most of the day… i took advantage of it. i can’t tell you how much fun i had letting go. i’m usually a focus nazi, but that’s one thing these lenses rarely are. so just finding the beauty in the raw out-0f-focus color fade glory of plastic lenses was a vacation in itself… confession… we did use the 50mm f1.4 on some of these. i developed the photos a little in aperture and then added the final bam with “camerabag”. what do y’all think?
oh. and here is a little time lapse of the sun setting as we watch the surfers in the distance.
much california lovin’
chris + sleeping allie.
