I love St. Patrick’s Day. It’s the only day of the year devoted almost entirely to drinking. I’m not a lush, but I do love good beer and today, everyone else pretends they like it, too. It’s like National Beer Day. Another reason I’m celebrating today is that my parents are visiting and they’re bringing me the spoils from a few flea market trips. They wintered in Ft. Meyers, FL and are bringing me a Yashica 635 and Konica 35mm SLR. I’m SO excited to try the Yashica and will probably load it up with film and take pictures of the daffodils, clover and weeds that are now populating my front yard. Here are some joyous, celebratory pictures that I took in January with my Fuji Natura Classica. One of my BFF’s, Loretta, and her husband Brad watched an important American Football playoff game at our house and our team won! Also on that roll of Fuji 800 speed film were pictures taken on a recent trip to Washington DC. We visited the International Spy Museum and ate in Chinatown. There was a sign stating “No Photography Allowed” at the entrance of the museum, but since it was one of the first times I had my Natura Classica with me, I decided to flaunt their rules. I didn’t get busted….hehehehe.
They’re not the best pictures (clearly, I need more practice taking pictures covertly) but I had fun doing it. Here’s some better shots of Chinatown.
We didn’t eat at this place, but with a name like New Big Wong, we might have try it
This is where we ate. You could watch them make noodles amongst the duck carcasses. Pretty cool.
More DC, but not in Chinatown
This would’ve been a great shot if it hadn’t been for that pesky camera strap.
Tonight we’ll be going out to celebrate and hear some great local music. I’ll be documenting it all on my iPhone and I hope to have pictures that I can share with you next week. I’m hoping not to drop my iPhone in beer tonight. Wish me luck with that!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, or should I say, National Beer Day!
