Me, Smiling Again


I'm getting behind but am so busy right now. I still haven't written about my wonderful weekend, but I'm here on campus playing with the camera on my computer and happen to have a few minutes before my ride comes to write about my first day back at Howard Community College. It is still exciting and fun to me to be on campus and have to buy books and read through the syllabus with anticipation for the coming semester. I'm taking one class again-Basic Photography. So far, after just one session, I'm thrilled. I knew a lot of the answers to the questions the instructor asked, but I've already learned some of the reasons and science behind why things I do work and don't work. My mind is already expanding to the possibilities of being an understanding, thinking photographer instead of just one with good instincts. I'll be working in black and white film and developing it myself, then making my own prints in a real darkroom! I think it will be challenging but also a ton of fun. I feel really lucky to be doing this.
