Wayne had a meeting in Napa...and at the last minute I hopped in the car. Made a few pit-stops along the way :)

    Yes, coffee, and their crazy nutter butter cookie. Sat outside, did some people watching. Really can't complain.

    Hi Heidi! I love your photos and recipe site! I was just wondering if you could tell me how you acheive the sort of faded/subdued colouring in your photos? They have this wonderful old-fashioned look. Are you using a filer or something?

    Hi Kate, thanks! I'm not sure I have the answer for you, though...This shot was a polaroid with 600 film, it was shot under terrible artificial lights, and I think the coloring was from the way the lights interacted with the polaroid 600 film. Beyond this shot, I never really use effect filters (or post-production Photoshop filters). I sometimes tweak the scans a bit for color balance and exposure if needed, but that's about it. I like to shoot, edit, frame as much in camera as possible, if that makes sense.
