Fashionable Friday : Out of Africa-ish

Not quite Out of Africa, but from the looks of that fence, this could be our definition of a weekend with the big cats.

Call me old-fashioned but there's a certain romance about old cameras and the careful consideration called for when capturing a moment in time without the ease of digital indulgence.  And don't get me started on dark rooms.  Is a kiss stolen while gently swirling paper and watching an image come alive under the ripples more breathtaking than a smooch exchanged over a computer screen?

Let us compose ourselves and sip G&Ts with a slice of finely-Laguioled lime while we ponder on the meritous possibilities of hipsters trading fudge brownies for Box Brownies.  Perhaps not a moment too soon.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. I will forgo the darkroom chemicals for those in the G&T, ma chere. But please do allow me to wear the hat.

    1. Ah, the lightheadedness of those darkroom chemicals ... perhaps nicer in theory, then. :) The hat is yours, ma chere!

  2. Ah, I remember those days of the magic of the dark room. No stolen kisses though as I was a married woman at the time.
    I need to email you one of my "Out of Africa" pictures.

    1. I'll look forward to your Out of Africa piccie, dear Michelle, and I'm glad to have sparked some memories.

  3. Such a romantic notion: a lightheaded kiss in a darkroom. Brings to mind Fred Astaire dancing in the darkroom with Audrey Hepburn. (And then on to Paris!)

Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
