I knew the mama deer had to have had twins, because a couple of times I’ve found identical, side-by-side indentations in my flower beds, where she’s been stashing them. This was the first time I’d actually seen them, though.

Altered Instax Photo

I’ve been playing around with the Instax Mini camera. I’d been looking at small format, instant print technology (mainly Instax and ZINK) and decided to go with Instax. I love being able to use the dud photos by altering them and incorporating them into collage work. Instax is similar to Polaroid but slightly different. Polaroid is exposed from the front and Instax from the back, meaning that the white layer that is outermost on a Polaroid is innermost on an Instax. After disassembling and scraping down a test photo, I can say that Instax photos are far sturdier than Polaroid. They’re harder to disassemble and harder to scrape the emulsion from. The end result is also somewhat different, I think, in that I really like the way the altered photo looks from the back, once the layers of emulsion are scoured away.

The top one reminds me of three pyramids or sand dunes under the sun.

I love the way Thomas tucks in his nose and folds his little chicken wing under his knee.

Years ago my old journals were destroyed in one of my many moves. If they hadn’t been, this pile would be about three times the size it is now.
