The first day I got my new lens I went around my home photographing everything in my path: dried holly berries from last winter, books on my night stand, Zan after his run. These were only meant to be practice photos, ones that would take root in my library, never finding their way to the light, but as I took a closer look I found something beautiful about the simplicity of them, the bits-and-pieces feel, and so I decided to share.
As I was writing in a title for this post, I realized that today is also the first day of September— how fitting. I still plan on embracing summer until the very last day, but something about September shifts my mind slightly to thoughts of fall and as much as I try to stop it, the shifting happens on its own, without a regard to what I want or wish for– which is a forever summer, of course. Good thing I have enough photos to last until forever— currently tackling my August stash, which seems to hold ONE MILLION and one reminders of why summer is my favorite.
