Awake the Wilde at Tonic Ball 2014

The gentleman who models for me most often, Sam Griswold, is also a bass player in the band Awake the Wilde. They performed their renditions of Velvet Underground and Lou Reed songs at this year's Tonic Ball on November 21, 2014. They truly rocked their covers and even concluded their set with an original entitled, "Bad as I Want," a song I can only describe as indescribably sexy.

The band members are identified from left to right. Go check out their Facebook, like their page and get ready because their new album is about to drop soon.

Thrifted Finds: Kodak Pocket Instamatic 40 Camera

The first Saturday of the month is Goodwill day. Everything at Goodwill stores is 50% off. Not far from our local Goodwill is a store called "Vintage Vogue," which is a subsidiary of the former. Basically, Goodwill takes their "best" merchandise (arbitrarily, it seems) and marks them up a few dollars. On 50% off day, it's worth the trip.

About two months ago, my boyfriend was digging around the miscellany when he came upon a little brown pouch with a long strap. Within, he found a small camera. Knowing how geeky I am for film cameras, he ran up to me as I was trying on over sized blazers and showed me the item. I opened the pouch to see a sad little Instamatic with the company's emblem plate taped on. I was going to leave it, thinking it was a camera that I couldn't buy film for. Lucky for me, he shrugged me off and decided to get it anyway as it was only three dollars. Then I noticed that it was a 110 camera and that there was no battery necessary. Then I bought it for myself and I'm glad the only defect was the taped on KODAK plate.

I took it to the Monon trail before dropping off a roll of black and white film at Indianapolis's Mr. Poster. I wasted about four exposures not knowing how to open the shutter, but the rest turned out pretty great.

Colts Games

I've been hoarding these pictures until my 35mm rolls got developed, but here they are - a collection of photos I took at various Colts games.

Unfortunately, I won't be attending this evening's game against the Patriots. However, as current Indiana resident and a former resident of New England, albeit for a brief period of time, I can now safely say, "Go Colts!"
