Color Me: trouble.

In honor of the much anticipated Troublemaker Society: Series 1  event at Catalyst Studios tonight I thought I would feature a photo from my talented friend Annie, taken in the much drooled after black frame Impossible Project Polaroid film. These two look like they might be up to no good in the absolute best way. Have a great weekend everyone, and hope to see you at Catalyst Studios tonight from 5:30-9:00 for some sweet art, sweet jams, free booze and lots of TROUBLE.

Color me: cheery.

Life isn't perfect, but you know what? It's good. And that is pretty lucky. This terribly adorable photo, snapped by my good friend Summer,  was taken at the lovely Cori Kindred's baby shower over in PDX. Congrats, Cori! Clearly my creative inspiration is still stuck in Portland- but who can blame me?! 

Let's all take some time this weekend to soak in the pastels of the season, take in a (hopefully) warm breeze and smile. Because things are just better when we do that.

We are in the midst of World Water Week and I wanted to take this opportunity to lay some knowledge out there-

4,000 children die every day from not having access to clean water. Worldwide, 900 million people lack access to clean water.

This means poor nutrition, high risk of illness and even children risking their lives in wartorn countries to travel long distances to simply get what we don't think twice about. World Water Day was yesterday, March 22, but don't worry- there is still time to make a difference. You can join in UNICEF's Tap Project, wherein participating restaurants simply ask for a $1 donation for the tap water you would normally get for free. No time to delay- the Tap Project ends on the 25th. Good thing it's the weekend you know you are heading out on the town tonight ;) 

Feeling lazy?

Just text "TAP" to UNICEF (864233) to make a $10.00 donation. Still not convinced? Click here for some nice lookin infographics on the true reach of this issue.

Live in my neighborhood? Look below the photo for a list of the participating Tap Project restaurants within a 50 mile radius of Minneapolis.

Color Me: springy.

Picnics. Portland. Fun. and my good friend Summer. We are all so surprised by our early spring in Minneapolis that I had to use a picture from the spring I spent in Portland. Happy picnic-ing everyone!

Color Me: ecstatic.

I am in Portland, Oregon visiting some very dear friends of mine at this very moment. I am, in all likelihood, in a state of utter euphoria. 

From my 24th birthday. Film.

Color Me: tickled.

Inspired by the Colour Lover posts over at Pugly Pixel

I have decided to start my own color feature entitled "Color Me:". What better way to really express how I'm feeling AND show off my incredibly talented photographer friends in the process. These will be posted every Friday in an effort to maintain some semblance of structure over here at grin & share it.

And so, my first Color Me...tickled. Why? Because I get to see the lovely woman in this photo AND the lovely woman who took this photo in TWO SHORT WEEKS!

Announcing: Film Feb Twenty-Twelve

As we wrap up fatmumslim's #janphotoaday and look forward to #febphotoaday I have been reflecting on my journey as a photographer. How it all started? Probably growing up as the child of two talented artists who met in photography class. My mom is now a commercial food photographer and an inspiration to me constantly. Shooting with film reminds me of home, and of another huge inspiration, Mr. Bill Cunningham.

In honor of them, and of all that came before us, I call out to all my photographer, blogger, artist friends and not-yet-friends to complement their #febphotoaday journey with Film Feb Twenty-Twelve. I will  be shooting at least a roll/pack of film per week and posting it in our Flickr pool and I encourage you to do the same.

This February I hope you'll dust off your cameras, venture in to your local pharmacy and pick up a couple packs of 400..or 800..or 600...(oh, and Polaroids count too!)
