One kid, one roll, once a month. Making carrot cake.

I was not feeling very inspired this month, but was itching to shoot some squares, so yesterday I picked up my Yashica mat 124 and shot a roll of ultra fine 400.  developed it this afternoon, got my chemicals mixed up, but most of them still turned out  and I just scanned them 😉

It is not my best month, but I still wanted to share them.  My daughter Noa loves to work in the kitchen and loves to cook.  The cake was delicious, and she knows carrot cake is my favorite. She was doing a practice run for my birthday.  Grating a pound of carrots was so much work. She learned a few things and I will have the most perfect cake next month on my birthday.  I didn’t get a photo of the cake because she finished late at night.

so I am just sharing a few squares, and please go around the film circle of mamas doing one kid, one roll, once a month.  It’s so fun to see everyone’s take on it.

(please excuse the dust on the photos, I haven’t had much time with my parents visiting this week, I have just spend 1 hours removing dust and I am done).

    1. thank you Kim, I was so pleased that that first one turned out. It actually gave me the idea to shoot this. ( I was going to skip this month for lack of inspiration). I walked in the kitchen and saw this scene, I never loaded my TLR so fast! and then the pup jumped in, and made it perfect! x, Léa

    1. Ha ha ha, actually i looked pretty funny, and since I am pretty tall (6.1) I had my head in the ceiling, and my neck all crooked. My dad actually took a photo with his iPhone, he thought it was too funny. ha ha ha.

  6. How special!! I just kept looking at these and thinking that someday she will show these to her daughter and her daughter’s daughter. They are classic and timeless and so very precious. You’ll have to photograph the “real” cake she makes for your birthday! 🙂
