february the first.

2.01.2012


I miss this. Waking up slowly, settled at the kitchen table with a grapefruit drizzled in honey, a bowl of granola, and through the curtains - a single ray of morning sunlight on my book. In the evening, a walk at golden hour, snapping away in a luminescent wind tunnel of cattail seeds. Practicing für elise in an empty house, and that luxury of making the first footprints in a fresh blanket of snow. That was semester break, in a nutshell. The fact that I'm now back in school does not strike a fancy with me, but I'll make this week better by finishing off my first roll of film (and leaving my digital photos unedited), embracing that one class I do love (canadian history), and the occasional phone conversation with nana and grampy (just because they're my favourite). Happy february, friends.

  4. I love the warm, golden glow your photos always have. That grapefruit in the first one is making my mouth water. I wish we had a fresh blanket of snow for me to walk in... Oh well. I'll just have to be content with the cool, dewey mornings we're currently having. :) Yes, yes - Happy February!

  18. Simply lovely photos. Made me take a moment to pause during this rather hectic day/evening to just... think about all the simple moments of life that bring me so much pleasure. Coincidentally, one of those moments includes grapefruit with honey, as well.

  19. These were so utterly inspiring. Okay, on the eighth picture. . . how did you get that colorful streak of lighting? Every time I see that in one of your pictures I literally "awww" out loud. Also, that last picture...genius.
