Week 11: Little Sister

This week was a rough one. We had over 10 inches of rain in a little more than two days, and as a result my basement turned into an indoor pool. There wasn't much time for photography, hence the 11th hour submission for the 52weeks project. I said early on that there would be the inevitable 11:59pm on Sunday post, and here is my first one...

I had about 4 frames left to go on a roll of FP4+ 125 I was shooting in my 35mm film camera, a Canon Rebel 2000. On the camera I had the 50mm f/1.4 lens and I was mostly shooting in and around Boston with it. The 4 frames ended up being shot at home, and they all were of my daughter who was standing at the kitchen island helping my wife with some baking. This was yesterday.

Not really sure if I had gotten the shot I wanted (this is film, after all), I unloaded the film and processed it a couple hours ago. It didn't get to dry very long. I tossed it into the scanner and I found 4 frames I liked. The one that really grabbed my eye was one of the frames I took yesterday of my daughter:

The girls are all usually very patient when they see me with the camera, but in this case they weren't being very cooperative. Three of those four remaining shots were either a blurry head or of closed eyes, but this one makes me happy when I look at it.

The other images for this week, the outtakes if you will, are all technically from the previous week, but since they were developed today I'll include them:
