This Year I…

I have a tendency to let the days fly by without looking back to see where I’ve been, what I’ve experienced, and how I’ve grown.

Here’s my attempt to do that… I pulled some of the film photos I’ve taken in the past year.

[A post on what this next year may bring is yet to come]

      you need to blog, period. also, get a holga and photograph away!

  • Natalie,

    Wow, I feel dumb because I’d never even seen your blog until you commented on ours. You are very talented! I think that you captured a whole year in a way that words could not. It’s funny but I was at several of the places you were at last year (Chicago, Ames, NYC). Take care!

  • Where where where is that favorite spot in NYC? So curious! Also, your photographs of the abandoned house? Yet another reason I think if I were ten+ years younger and in college with you, we’d be best buds. So. Cool. Love. It.
