New Launch at SPD and a Self-Portrait.

We launched yet another week of SPD. We have one more week of Email sign-ups and then we move entirely over the the automatic submission system Toby Joe so brilliantly wrote. I’m looking forward to that, too. :] Please, go visit them. Click on some of the faces you find interesting and say hello. (I have a few favorites each week but I’ll never tell.)

Last night, I developed a roll of black and white film. It was the first roll I personally developed in about seven years. I had a few frames to do away with before processing, so I thought a nice picture of myself wearing a green face mask might be nice.

It’s a good thing I don’t have this image in color. SK-AIR-EE. Go ahead, click the image above and see just how strange I look without eyebrows. (I’ll put up the rest later.)

I think I might submit this nasty baby to The Mirror Project as well and give Heather a real scare.

  2. Hi Michele – am really enjoying your blog, I esp liked the waiting couple… I’m off now to explore the SPD site, what a great idea. Have a good day, hope the sun is shining on you.

  3. What do you mean you can’t see it? Is anyone else having that problem. Please, step forward so I can figure out why. How weird. :[
    Thank you, Fiona.

  5. Has this happened before? I wonder if TJ turned something off/on. I would guess it’s your firewall(s). I will do some research.

  6. When I right click and select ‘open in a new window’, it appears. Hmmm.

  7. I see the dreaded red x.

  8. No pic, no red X, no spot for a pic. If you hadn’t mentioned clicking it, I would’ve wondered if I was only supposed to go look at it on the Mirror Project. (is it there?)

    bummer.

    BTW: I see that SPD is really getting more and more artsy/creative as the weeks go by. Makes me wonder if I’ll be up for the challenge if/when my turn comes up again…

  11. Yes, refresh! This morning I could see the red X but when I clicked it I saw the picture. Right now it’s totally fine. I am just on ol Explorer, at work, with firewalls and shit. ;-)

    Congrats on 3 years, girl…I didn’t get a chance to say so yesterday!

    The SPD site is rockin…I love checking it out every week.

  13. Yeah, Jeff’s picture is super cute. He sent another one and when I saw that one I was thinking, “are you nuts! jumping jeff is a winner!” so I guess he eventually saw the light and changed his mind. heh

  14. yup…I was going to go for a more recent one but, in the end, I decided it had to be the jumping one. glad you like it…

  15. That is very a very cute pic, despite your protestation.

  16. Where did your brows go?

    If I lived anywhere near NYC I’d be all over that roller derby event. Damn.

  18. Not sure about the rockin’ but I submit it nonetheless. :]
    Scott, just fly here. There are planes for this sort of adventure. You know you want to. It will be the event of the year.
