Here are some of my first attempts at making sun prints using cyanotype papers. They're really fun and easy to use - I found mine at Dick Blick. I built a little pinhole camera that I tried out on a really overcast day and had poor results. I'm going to take it out on a really sunny day and see what happens.

Sorry I haven't been posting much! Have been super busy with Occupy Philly (Our movement in solidarity with Occupy Wall street.) It all happened so quickly - and it's continually gaining momentum. My friend and I were the first facilitators for the Direct Action committee, and I have to say I'm happy we continually rotate these responsibilities. It's absolutely exhausting. I found some photos from a march over the weekend with me in them (I have been too busy to take any decent photos of my own, sadly.) I'm the girl in stripes with the sign the reads: "Capital shall not own us" which I took from an old poster celebrating the election of Abraham Lincoln. I've read a lot of disheartening things online against the protest - to which I have to say: Go to the protests. Go see what's actually happening and who is there and listen to people's stories. This isn't about conservatives and liberals - this is about the fact that the top 1% of this country account for 24% of the nation's income. Back in the 1920's when the top 1% accounted for 18% of the nation's income there was SERIOUS public outrage. President Hoover took action against monopolies around this time too. (He actually charged these corporations double what they had previously paid for supplies. Sort of similar to the Occupy movement's proposal to tax the over-rich contemporary corporate giants appropriately.) This movement comes at a time of larger political unrest throughout the world. This shouldn't be shocking, people. This has been a long time coming. Mobilize. Unite. Occupy.
