I had an awful migraine one day and seemed to be playing catch-up the rest of the week. But I pushed myself to shoot one roll, and these were some of the shots I got, most just after the weather had just changed from a cold rain to sun (rainbow light!). Some interior details, one of my dogs, and a few signs of Spring.

Project Film 52- Week 7 Favorites https://www.violetagarciamendoza.com/blog/2016/3/project-film-52--week-7-favorites This was the fastest roll I've shot so far! Fuji Superia 800 one Saturday in the kitchen, cooking and hanging out with my older daughter. We made Spanish tortilla de patata, empanadas, and croquetas, drank some coffee, ate some pears, and colored.

Project Film 52- Week 6 Favorites https://www.violetagarciamendoza.com/blog/2016/3/project-film-52--week-6-favorites This week's favorites are a bit of a strange mix of things. I took a couple attempts (as a passenger in a moving car) at night photography, shot in the yard on an icy morning, shot some falling snow another afternoon, and did some food photography in the kitchen.

Project Film 52- Week 5 Favorites https://www.violetagarciamendoza.com/blog/2016/3/project-film-52--week-5-favorites This week's favorites were taken with my new Canon 50 1.2L lens...which is just...magic! I debated for a while before getting a gently used copy, as I've had both the Canon 50 1.4 and the Sigma 50 Art before, and sold them both. But I'm so happy I gave the 50L a chance. It has beautiful color and contrast, it's sharp, and has dreamy compression and bokeh. It might become a new favorite!

These photos were taken just around the house and garden. I got some new houseplants I'm trying to keep alive, and my older daughter turned 10. It was a beautiful week!

So half are stark winter, and half are GREEN! <3

Project Film 52- Week 3 Favorites https://www.violetagarciamendoza.com/blog/2016/2/project-film-52--week-3-favorites I'm trying to use the winter to improve my food photography. This week's favorites include a number of food/kitchen photos taken on Fuji Superia 400 and 800, and a few more of the pretty snow.

Project Film 52- Week 1 Favorites https://www.violetagarciamendoza.com/blog/2016/1/project-film-52--week-1-favorites One of my photography projects for 2016 is shooting at least a roll of film every week. (Realistically, most weeks I'm shooting multiple rolls, but I want to push myself to shoot no matter whether the week is inspiring or not). Here are some favorites from Week 1, taken around the house and at the National Aviary.
