blink

 

i could say he was trying to give me a pose with bunny ears and call it a day. or, i could also mention that when he saw this photo he said: mommy, this was when i needed to do pupu. and that is how our visit to this lake park was cut short. we got back in the car and drove home, which, by the way, was at least an hour away, but my child hates public restrooms.

heart melting moments

 

my kids fight all the time. like typical siblings do, usually. at least that’s what would happen with my brother and i. but then there are those moments of cooperation and sharing, of cuddles and sweetness… that just make up for all the teasing/yelling/toy stealing/etc. and in those moments, my heart melts. i don’t always have a camera near by to catch it (let alone focus properly). this time i did.klodjana_dervishi_10100004hasselblad 500c/m | kodak portra 160

where there is water…

there will be a wet alice. i have to remind myself to bring extra clothes everywhere, even when i don’t think she’ll need a change, because you never know, she might decide to bathe in a puddle or shower with a glass of water.

the era of fake smiles

jenny

this is the first photo i took of jenny, quite a while back, as we were out photographing the sunset.

since then, we have both changed cameras, going from TLRs to bulkier medium formats (especially jenny with her mamiya rz67!).

the one thing that hasn’t changed is me having a low speed film in camera at sunset. first photo shot with the rolleicord on kodak portra 160. second, with the hasselblad 500c/m on kodak ektar 100. and my hands are not that steady at 1/30th of a second or less.
