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.


Snowballs at daddy too.






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.


We watched the deer for a while.


And then Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias.


And I mean GIANT.

When we picked up this umbrella at ToysRUs, I thought it was a cute little polka dot umbrella… then we opened it at home and… hello kitty. I hate characters but she loves it, so much that we had to drag it around Yosemite, even though it was neither raining nor snowing during our time there.
