The Quintessential Quasi-Intellectual

Pre-Michigan Film Dump

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

Before I left, I dropped off a good load of film off. Here are the ones that weren't completely screwed up.

As Bob Ross would say, "We don't make mistakes, we make happy accidents"

Some proper photos from my vacation

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

I did take my SLR with me to Michigan as well.

I'd like to also plug the restaurant Legs Inn in Cross Village, MI. A curious place that serves Polish food amidst Native American decorative influences and the only place I have been able to acquire Polish beer in the Midwest (I'm sure Chicago would be a place to go, but it's so far away). Anyway, if you're ever in the area, it's well worth the stop.

Vacation: From the iPhone

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

Some iPhone photos from my vacation in Michigan that I like.

I was fortunate enough to travel with my SO and his family to Harbor Springs, MI for a week. The bottom photos were taken at Pond Hill Farm. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend that you stop by. Their food is excellent and the beer that they started brewing is even better. You can purchase their signature sauces and dressings as well as other locally grown items in the shop.

Rabbits

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

I was hanging out at home and brooding by the computer when I spotted a rabbit not too far from my window. Then, I saw another. I saw them play hide and seek. At one point, one rabbit hid in the bushes while I photographed the other looking for his buddy. I missed the action shot when the rabbit leapt out of the bushes and scared my rabbit so much so that he flew in the air and I missed the shot. But here they are playing

Here is the rabbit who was looking for the rabbit in hiding

And here is a rabbit in contemplation. You can tell because the photograph is black and white.

iPhoneography Catch-Up

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

Once again, I've been pretty mediocre at updating. So mediocre that I was late in paying Squarespace to keep this thing up and running. In my defense, I was out getting a Master's degree. But no matter - all has been resolved.

I also have seven or eight rolls of film I still need to get developed, so here are some iPhone pictures to hold you over.

My Love for the Hipstamatic App

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

If you know me, you know I primarily use one photo app called Hisptamatic and that I can't take more than nine photos in succession and that the photos don't show up immediately because they're "developing." This faux-analog process has driven some of my friends figuratively insane. Even though the app crashes on me more than I'd care to admit, I really am obsessed with it. I won't try to defend iPhonography as photography. I shoot on multiple cameras (analog, toy, digital, phone) and have fun with all of them. I know these are filters, but I have fun nevertheless and I like some of the pictures I get, so I'm sharing them with you here.

What I've Been Up To

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

I've clearly been neglecting my own website and here's why:

 

I was learning how to tilt shift with my new camera

I went to go visit my parents, who happen to live on the creepiest plot of land in New Jersey

And my mother took me window shopping

After Christmas, I went skiing

And played in the snow

And when I finally got home, I had to survive a snowstorm of apocalyptic proportions
