a few lake moments.

7.19.2012



I'm often within reach of some sort of camera. I usually take advantage of that. I usually document. Sometimes I don't, because there are certain things that cameras just can't do justice. I find this to be true at the lake, especially, but that doesn't stop me from trying every now and again. These mostly failed attempts hold a special place in my heart.

  5. These are some beautiful photos. And if a company who did videography saw your video, they'd probably hire you. You're so crazy creative and talented that it blows my mind.

  32. Sometimes I am not within reach of a camera. I am unable to document so I tell myself to just enjoy and allow it to be but a daze of a memory. At times, those are the memories I remember most vividly.

  33. These photos are gorgeous! Especially love the second and fifth shots!
    And the video- beautiful.

  34. I agree that sometimes the camera doesn't do justice or breaks up the flow of the activity, but I sure am glad that you chose to capture these. So beautiful.
