It's a Photo Swap!

I recently joined Rhianne's [from For the easily distracted...] second annual photo swap. This is my first foray into the world of online swaps, though I've been intrigued for sometime now, especially reading about all the wonderful swaps Faiza is a part of.

I chose this swap as my first because of its simple rules:

"Each photoswapper either takes a roll of film
or buys a disposable camera
it has to be something that you develop
and they take photos just for their swap partner,
then send the cameras/films to each other
and develop the other persons photos.
(and posts them on their blogs for everyone to see of course)"

I've been dying to break out a roll of film [such an odd commodity in this digital age] for awhile now, but haven't had a reason to delve into the unknown. I was worried that I would *waste* the film on photos that wouldn't be any good. But now I have to get over that! I actually have the camera that my parents used to take all my baby photos in my possession, so I think I may use it for this project.

My partner is Leslie, who has already written me a great email and has a fantastic blog! We have so much in common and I'm excited to see what she has in store for me.

The deadline for the swap is August 6. I'll post Leslie's photos as soon as I develop them!
