I've been sick. And it was not fun. Needless to say, I will be get my flu shot from now on.
The above images were taken in Father's garden in Louisiana over the Thanksgiving holiday. His kumquat and lemon trees never disappoint. And as you can probably see, I'm learning to love Portra 160.
And finally, On the Table is back in stock and ready to ship. I had no idea so many people would be interested - thank you!
These are the last of my captures from Louisiana, all taken with my polaroid land camera. I hope you have enjoyed these images!
I have been feeling a bit off creative wise. But I am slowly finding my way back. I know this is true for everyone who creates, regardless of your medium. Setting my camera to side for a bit has definitely renewed my spirit.
A few more Louisiana details.
These images remind me so much of my childhood, spent sitting on chairs like these on my grandmother's porch. She didn't have air conditioning, and the porch was actually cooler than the house......
I'm home once again. A much needed break.
More film shots from this day. Did I mention how much I love film?
Lately, I have been struck by the seemingly mundane things in my life that mean so much to me. At this point in my life, I am devoting so much time to my family and giving so much of myself. By the end of most days I am completely exhausted. I have so many ideas in my head and things that I would like to do. There just aren't enough hours in the day!
I embrace this period in my life because I know that my little ones will not always be so little. I remind myself that if it where not for them, the beauty of the seemingly mundane would not be that important to me. I love capturing the little things of my day, these that I would forget had I not pointed my camera and pressed the shutter.
I'll leave you with this link that I found via Elisabelle. If you have a moment, please visit Days with my father. I was really touched by the words and images of by Phillip Toledano. To me, this is the epitome of capturing the seemingly mundane to tell a story about life.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
I just received another roll of film back that I shot a couple of weeks ago and once again, I love the results. I had to share a few with you here today. My father has a lemon tree that my daughter just loves. I'd give anything to be back in this warmer weather!
Honestly, I'm grabbing my film camera more and more these days instead of my dslr!
This concludes my week of images from my French Louisiana collection. I'm not sure if I'm going to include all of the images I've posted, but I have enjoyed sharing them here!
Have a wonderful weekend!
