After getting rained out on Saturday, Anna and I shot Sunday in dry but cool weather, which forced us inside for much of our shoot. A native of Russia, Anna is a student at Harris Manchester College, which is for mature students pursuing an undergraduate degree; in Anna's case, she is studying PPE, or Philosophy, Politics and Economics. It's basically a power degree, and apparently most British politicians studied PPE at Oxford (as evidenced on Wikipedia's page devoted to the course). Family and friends can ask Anna for a password to see more in Anna's private gallery

Finally invested in a roll of paper. How easy! Looking to do more studio and portrait work, so this is an important step, and I can't believe I didn't do it before.

Angela shot with the Miranda Sensoret I bought for fifty cents at a Salvation Army blowout sale, after which it would have been thrown out. It was Angela's idea to buy it, and it's a good thing because we have a tonne of old 35mm film in the freezer.
