Just when you think getting a new smartphone is important……

“We human beings don’t realize how great God is. He has given us an extraordinary brain and a sensitive loving heart. He has blessed us with two lips to talk and express our feelings, two eyes  which see a world of colors and beauty, two feet which walk on the road of life, two hands to work for us, a nose which smells the beauty of fragrance, and two ears to hear the words of love. As I found with my ear, no one knows how much power they have in their each and every organ until they lose one.”

-Malala Yousafzai; after hearing in her left ear with a cochlear implant for the first time after being shot in the head



I have a new toy and it’s beautiful! I am going old school for the new year, actually starting today. I will be using a film camera, which is already complicated since film is not popular, I am not sure how to use this camera yet and I need a darkroom. The darkroom is not a necessity, yet what is the point of having such a beautiful camera and not developing the film myself. Also, I love thrift  stores, not for the clothes, although they do have an okay selection in Atlanta. I love thrift for books, lockets and now cameras.
