It's that time of year again. Spring is surely on the way.
Every year, the trees in our backyard burst into beautiful pink blooms that we get to enjoy for only about two weeks. As happy as I am to see them, I sometimes take their beauty for granted.
Trying to remember that every season is a phase, to enjoy the beauty of each while it lasts.
And I couldn't help but capture the morning light on our table when I returned inside.
More film captures, soon.
Last weekend, my husband and I were able to sneak away for a quick weekend trip to the Florida coast - Amelia Island. We stayed at the Amelia Island Plantation Resort - and it was beautiful. We enjoyed pockets of sunlight in between the clouds, and it was good to get away for a bit.
I decided to only bring two cameras on this trip - my Pentax K1000 and my Fuji Instax Mini (for a mini book I decided to make at the last moment, which I'll share soon).
Here are a few of my film captures.
I don't think I will ever get tired of capturing delicate, pink blooms on film.
They only appear for such a short time in the Spring. In the time it has taken me develop this film, this tree is already sporting new, green leaves.
Have a great weekend, friends.
Also, a quick reminder that On The Table, Volume 2 is available for preorder until April 15 for a discounted price! Orders begin shipping April 20.
I love the awakening that Spring brings.
Such beauty. A renewal each and every year.
It is the first day of the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. And I'm loving the sights and sounds of Spring so far. Capturing yellow roses on film, bees swarming around the trees in full bloom, and our tulips on the way.
I'm a little addicted to creating videos to document the start of a season. I simply think it's a unique way to capture and document what's around me and bring images to life. Here's a video from last summer, and a behind the scenes look at instant film photography.
It's no secret that I love fresh flowers in my home.
But when I grab my camera to document them, I find myself drawn to a certain time of day. I am searching for the sweet spot when I can capture the shadows and light.
Usually in the early morning, sometimes in the evening. Not quite light, not quite dark. But each time, there is a stillness that has taken over the house.
And that is what I strive to capture.
