The Duaflex Lives

A while back, I found this camera at the old-fashioned flea market for $5. I had to clean it up a bit and re-spool some film to fit, but I finally got the pictures from it developed and it works!

Mohonk Mountain House

For a two day company retreat, we went to the Mohonk Mountain House. I was still tired from being sick but I did manage to go walking in the woods for a bit. I didn't feel like bothering with my DSLR, but I took some pictures with my basic point-and-shoot (and a few with my Holga that I haven't gotten developed yet).

The hotel

There were a lot of these covered seats along the trails

I saw a deer!

This one is probably my favorite picture, the lighting was gorgeous and it reminds me a bit of a Tor Lundvall painting

...and there's some more pictures on flickr

Hospitals aren't fun

Well, I recently returned home after a four day stay in the hospital due to a pretty nasty infection. I'd never had to stay overnight before so that four days was an unpleasant surprise. I also missed Halloween entirely, which was a letdown. Regardless, things seem to be getting back to normal. I have definitely been feeling a lot more introspective than usual, though, and it's a bit frustrating since now I want to make some life improvements but I'm still run down and tired all the time. Here's hoping my motivation will hold out until I feel fully recovered!
