Finally had to replace my five year old Nikon point and shoot. I loved that camera. Here's hoping its replacement is just as good.

So awesome! I live vicariously through the Banff Film Festival every year. People do some crazy things! If you ever have the chance, go see it. The opening alone is more than worth it!

Not feeling very inspired to take an actual picture today, so a random snapshot it is. Maybe because I used up all my creativity doodling.
First day back to school + three hour class = one bored Kim.
I know, I know. But in my defence, these weren't my actual notes - just a random sheet of paper. And most of the doodles were related to what the prof was saying.
Anyways, you can see why I take pictures instead of draw things!

315/365 : Egg, originally uploaded by im-kay.
So for some reason I got it in my head that I wanted to try an egg for supper this week. Not sure why. I don't eat eggs. I don't like eggs. But eggs are one of those things that I want to like; that I wished I liked. So I decided to go with my crazy brain and give it a try for supper tonight. It was okay. Didn't love it, but ate (most of) it, and didn't hate it. I think I would have liked it better if the yolk was runnier. Note to self : next time don't cook it quite so long.
One way or another I am going to make myself like eggs.
An old No. 1A Pocket Kodak Jr. I got for Christmas. More shots here.
Old cameras are so fascinating. It is neat to think that at one time someone used the camera like I use mine today. Who knows what the camera has seen and recorded, what significance it had for its original owner. It is a piece of history that goes beyond just its physical self to the images and memories it recorded. Somewhere, there are pictures that were taken with this camera. Who knows what those pictures are? They could be anything. The possibilities that an old camera holds because of its past are endless. It reminds me of the cliche "if only the walls could talk," but in this case, "if only the camera could talk!"
