Land Camera

Paul, on the side of the road in Salinas, CA, Polaroid Land Camera

This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. If you come across a Polaroid Land Camera at a flea market, buy it! They usually still work and take 3000 speed film (which you can still find easily) Instant vintage charm!


In keeping with the childhood beliefs theme, I want to share my dear friend Jen’s new blog. This entry is especially beautiful, on the subject of childhood beliefs and fear. Her photography will delight you. Her spirit will move you. Visit her often and you will fall in love.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Jen’s entry was so moving. I thought immediately of the most beautiful song by Amanda McBroom when I read it. It’s called ‘No Fear’ and it starts off like this:’I’m not afraid of spiders. I’m not afraid of snakes. Or things that go bump in the night. I don’t believe in monsters under the bed. I leave my closet open when I turn out the light. I’ve made my peace with darkened hallways, scary movies, men who mutter when you walk by….’
    She goes on in her poetic and witty way, talking about all the things we do to take care of our fears, and suddenly it hits you at the end, when the words go…’the only thing I fear, some day, some night, some year, the only thing I fear… is losing you.’ It’s a devastating and magnificent song.
    Thank you, Andrea, for such an inspiring, warm and inspirational site.
