Alice Before and After

Before, with a disposable camera:

And after. I’m leaving in a minute to get a G9 lesson from a friend’s professional photographer boyfriend!! Hopefully I will come back knowing how to take much better pictures with this camera.  You know, the throw-away one has nice things about it, too.  Even if the colors are from bizarro-land.

  1. Boy, Stacy–the Easter window pic taken with the throwaway really IS prettier — and you didn’t even Photoshop it for the effect. I’m glad you’ve reminded me there are other cameras available in a pinch. I tend to discount the disposables but shouldn’t.(The magical look of the first picture–just due to the coloration–makes the display case look like it might “come alive” after midnight…)

  2. Oh, I love the way you describe it, the way it has a look like it might come alive. It just flashed me back to childhood in a nice way, when you still wondered, well, do they??
