Because I have gels and might as well use ’em.
Sometimes you wake up way too early on a weekend.
Might as well go outside, right?
Only the best of fake sunbeams for Marty.
I’m writing up ads for Dad’s old film cameras and getting strangely emotional. This one especially, the Canon AE-1, holds a lot of memories for me. I had automatic film cameras growing up, basic things so we could document our silly games. But this one was the first Real Camera I ever used.
I borrowed it for high school photo class and suddenly the world looked different. The distance provided by the lens allowed me to see things in a different light. This camera signalled the official start point of an obsession. It’s a little hard to let it go, but hopefully, it will spark something in its next owner too.
Much has been happening. I’ve been coming and going so often I feel dizzy! So, until I carve out time later this week (I hope), have a photo from my visit to Kamloops in August (a month ago!). The one clearer evening without much forest fire smoke, and the moon shining through it all.
Zeke is a giant bouncing ball of energy. Making beer is time-consuming. It’s pretty hot today.
It’s a rare day when she sits still long enough for me to get a mostly clear shot. (mostly – she couldn’t resist grooming me). Marty is featured in more photos mostly because he sits still better and follows me around a lot, unlike Tobers who hides somewhere to sleep. She’s always happy for the attention, she’s just a blur while she’s with you <3
Sometimes the light does a thing, and you have to take some photos. [Mostly makeup-free, just concealer.]
Well, June certainly flew by! It feels like it started just yesterday, but suddenly it’s July 4th already.
Some of the things I’ve been doing:
- enjoying the sunshine
- coaxing the garden
- writing fiction
- hosting visitors
- creating an embroidery pattern and art line (!!!) that will be released this week
- taking care of myself
June was both wonderful and quite difficult at the same time. Here’s hoping that July repeats only the best parts of June ;)
