Yosemite 2014

We took a little trip to Yosemite last month (first time there!) and during the two night stay I managed to shoot 5 rolls on my Pentax 67. Tried not to post them all… alas, this post came out huge.

It was neither raining nor snowing, yet, she insisted on the Hello Kitty umbrella.

Snowballs at mommy for trying to take photos.

We ice skated alongside the river.

Unfortunately, Hello Kitty was not left behind…klodjana_dervishi_37930006

Grumpy because mommy is still bothering him with the camera. And because his gloves are too big (that’s another story, from another snow trip. to Tahoe.)klodjana_dervishi_37930007

The views did not disappoint. It was sprinkling when I took this one, en route to Hetchy Hetch.klodjana_dervishi_37930010

Before we packed and checked out, I took a couple of portraits with the soft window light. First born refused to be documented.

one of my favorite

this shot is just so dreamy to me. the light, her hair, the daisies, her foot turned inwards, the little sandals, her pulling on the dress and looking down, the bokeh in the back, the green and red complementing each other.
