Suki was an honored guest at the 18th Annual Webby awards for her involvement as the hipster scarf version of the doge meme. This, of course, meant a whirlwind trip for Team Suki to New York City last weekend.
After exploring New York with her for the first time, we were driven straight to the red carpet, which was quite the surreal experience. Suki was her calm and confident self as dozens of press photographers pummeled us with a flurry of flash strobes. She even took a couple of interviews along the way:
We spent some time back stage with the production crew, who set up photos with a bunch of Webby Award winners and other celebrities on hand during the show.
Suki met host Patton Oswalt…
…and George Takei (super nice guy, by the way)
…the folks from BuzzFeed
…the Jamaican bobsled team
….astronaut Mike Massimino
…Questlove and De La Soul
Bridget and I were hard at work handling Suki and keeping her fixated on the cameras. Fortunately, the three of us have a ton of experience with this kind of thing :)
See the silver camera that photographer is holding up in the image above? That’s the brand spanking new and oh-so-beautiful Leica T. Leica was on hand to cover the event, so there were Leica cameras evvvveerryywheeere.
Since Leica was an official sponsor, they provided the swag for the Webbys. I couldn’t have asked for a better swag bag, which includes an actual Leica C camera.
Suki enjoyed the attention and the posh accommodations. Bridget and I are exhausted. Back to normal life now.
It occurred to me recently that the last time I shot a roll of Velvia was about two years ago! Though I’ve been loving VSCO’s Velvia 50 preset, there’s nothing quite like shooting the real deal. Finally got through a roll this past week and had the results scanned and mounted.
Of course, the best way to enjoy 35mm slides is to run them through a projector. Fortunately, we’ve had one in the family for many years. Despite being just about as old as the camera I used to shoot these slides, it still works beautifully. Looking forward to filling some empty projector magazines :)

Do you shoot film? Then why didn’t you tell me this would be so addictive!!!?!?!?
Right now I’m trying to run a different roll through the M3 each time as I get a feel for the camera. These are scans from a roll of Fuji 160s. So far I think I’m liking Tri-X the most for shooting with the M3, but this color negative film is pretty nice stuff:
