This is my first time participating in the Photoswap.  It's very simple, you're assigned a partner and you exchange a roll of film you have each taken.

I was partnered with Emily from Resplendent Tranquility.  Receiving a mystery roll in the post was almost like opening a Christmas gift, you get that feeling of anxiousness and glee to see what lies inside.

"Nearly all the photos were taken in my small hometown on the border between New York and Massachusetts. It's very quiet and rural here, so I tried to capture that essence. I shot a few photos (maybe 2 or 3) at an outdoor play in Albany. Even though they were taken in a city, I think they'll still convey a ''country'' feel (which was my aim for this project)"  -Emily

The city is usually the first thing that comes to mind when New York is mentioned.  Well, Emily has shown me another side,  the beautiful countryside of upstate New York and I love it.  She has taken some very beautiful pictures of her hometown, here are a few of my favorites.
