august recap

Posted on: September 3, 2009

it was quite a very eventful month…a cousin [who I have not seen for a very VERY very long time] came home. it really meant a lot to see her again. she took care of me when I was a little girl. we even lived in the same house on two occasions. and despite the years decades that have gone by, it is wonderful to find out that she’s still the same funny + quirky + sweetest cousin ever —-  very excited to see her this november in vegas 🙂_MG_0359

yep. i’m heading back to the US for a three week “escapade” — heading once again to san francisco + LA…then heading north to las vegas before meeting up with friends in the big apple (new yorkers: beware. we’re going to paint the town a crazy shade of red!!! lol) it will be my birthday gift to myself. speaking of my birthday, got my first gift for this year this month — a dear friend of my mom was sooo generous enough to give me his Nikon EM (still in perfect working condition – will share/post the pictures I took with it once I have them printed out) —

 

Nikon_EM

the nikon EM was actually introduced in 1979 (the year I was born —- yep, i’m hitting the big 3-0 next month). one of the lightest and smallest SLR cameras that Nikon produced. taking pictures with it is really easy. it uses an aperture priority automatic exposure control system — meaning you just set the aperture + focus + shoot. that simple. the camera will automatically select the right shutter speed to match the selected aperture value for proper exposure.  there is even an electronic “beep-beep” sound that warns you if you need to adjust the aperture. neat eh? 🙂

on the scrappy side of things… as shown by my previous post, got my mojo on high gear the past couple of weeks… maybe it was the sight of brand new papers and tools … or maybe seeing my pile of pictures … well whatever the reason, scrap mojo decided to kick in and stay for a little while —– sharing some more layouts I finished last month—
