I liked watching the wind carry her hair

it danced

much like a tree's leaves
much like her life


I got a new lens, and then immediately put my camera in a box and mailed it to California for a week or two for repairs. This was the first time I've ever had to do this. 


I never realized how attached I was to it, until it wasn't at my fingertips for easy use. I went on a walk last night with Daphnie and saw so many things I wanted to photograph- of course. Don't you wish when your eyes blinked you could take a picture?


little backpacker.

Annnnnnnnd just when I thought she couldn't get any cuter, we put her in a backpack.

freaking adorable.


an apple a day.

Fall is my favorite season by far. I usually associate it with pumpkin carving, a new season of the office, homemade candied apples, new school supplies, and of course, the amazing weather (just to name a few.) But from now on I can add roadside apple picking to the list. My boyfriend can spot an apple from a mile away, kind of like one of my best friends in high school could spot a cop when we were driving on the drag. I'm not sure which talent is more useful, but for today I'll go with apple spotting. 

Oh and for the record, we have cooked and demolished two apple cobblers in about 4 days. Yay us.

and a couple from the home front:

and a few because, well, I just couldn't help myself.

Hope everyone is having an AMAZING weekend! I'm shooting a wedding all day today!


No words this week, just pictures.


It's been a good week. I enjoyed some of the moments I had alone. I had breakfast alone at a diner. Hiked Hogsback by myself. Got a gym membership and went to yoga with a room full of strangers. I also enjoyed one of my guilty pleasures this morning and browsed through a flea market that I happened upon. I saw a lot of junk, but came away with one treasure: an old magazine featuring Katherine Hepburn. I have a special place in my heart for her. My mom adored her, so I grew up hearing of her, watching her films, and sitting on the couch looking through this giant book we had that was full of pictures from her life. I still have the book, it's torn pages now full of pressed flowers. My favorite image was Katherine in her later years,  running out of the freezing February water towards her snow covered house. She was wearing her bathing suit and waiving behind her a red and white beach towel. 
She'd say,
"Not everyone is lucky enough to understand how delicious it is to suffer."

She was so admirable. I need to have more of that kind of zest in my life.

And of course, a Sunday post isn't anything without an image of my charming dog. Here she is, in her wet "just bathed" glory enjoying one of her homemade treats. :)
