light leaks

Friday, September 30, 2011

problems loading the film initially and this is the outcome.

warped, plenty of light leaks, and you can even see numbers from the back of the film on some.

still, I love not knowing what the outcome will be until the film is developed.


went out on town lake on monday to enjoy the sunshine and much needed escape.

it's amazing how even though you are downtown, when out on the water it all just slips away.


have a lovely weekend.

knock-out views of downtown

plus just a block away from South Congress Ave.

smitten over the little architectural details both exterior and interior.

I think it's those windows in the breakfast nook that really draw me to this house.

ahhh the light that room must get when sunlight streams in.

just had to dream a little today.

listed at $479,000.

early hours

watching the sunrise in the reflection of a nearby shop window.

breakfasts and walks with temperatures cooling off in the early hours is just the way to start the day.

hope monday is being nice to you.

catching raindrops

Friday, September 16, 2011

there is this wild notion that wet drops can fall from the sky.

I have been a firm non-believer that this could actually happen in Austin.

until today.

I was standing outside, marveling at the dark clouds covering the sky.

and oh my golly gee whiz!

these big, fat rain drops just started falling from the sky.

Noah actually ran for cover.

and looked at me with incredulous eyes...

and I am for sure he thought

 that his mom has totally lost her marbles for just standing there letting this "wet stuff" fall on her.

I of course had to get a picture to document this day that I turned into a believer.

so I grabbed my polaroid, BUT I didn't want to get it WET!

so I grabbed my trusty, fabulously colorful umbrella.

and instead of taking a picture to prove that there really was rain...

I took a picture of the umbrella and my hand (and you have to pretend that you see rain drops)

but I swear.

cross my heart and hope to die.

stick a million needles in my eye.

it rained today.

the first sketch

There is a large, blank canvas staring at me on my living room wall.

I used to paint with acrylics.

I used to be pretty darn good.

Used to.

It has been a while.

But the brushes have been dusted off.

I can feel inspiration all around me.

That canvas isn't going to be blank much longer.

fresh & clean
