Sunflowers amongst the figs.
Our walk this morning was quite lovely! It cooled down a little overnight, and the sun was out, but mostly chillin' behind a cloud or two; super nice! The pups came with and enjoyed it, too. Happy Thursday!
Just taking in the unique landscape at Bryce National Park. My friends and I stopped by during my move from LA to Denver and I’m glad we did. At this point, we hadn’t slept in over 24 hours, but this view was worth it.
Takeaway: These hoodoos are funny looking.
My friend @kpopes and I were talking and i was kneeling down in this water, when Ripley comes over and just sits in my lap! 😂😍 she had an entire beach to play on and she decided to sit on my lap instead. She sat like this for a good 10 min while I snuggled her and kept talking with my friend. Happy we got a photo! It was such a funny and special moment with her. God I love this dog. .
Me and Jamie went to the park today for some reading and Ukulele practice 🌿
I’ve found that I get extremely down on myself very quickly when learning new skills. I am so susceptible to comparison (the thief of joy) and I quickly start to feel like I should give up because I feel silly for being so bad at something. It gets me really down and honestly it’s just kind of ridiculous. I’m going to try figure out a mantra to repeat to myself when I feel like that so that I’m reminded to keep going and working for improvement. And to remind myself that I AM good at many things, but I don’t need to be amazing at something to enjoy it anyway 🌸
On est parti voir la mer. Toujours en Toscane. Et après une petite marche et un délicieux moment passé sur une petite plage d'une crique bondée, on s'est posé là. Tout là-haut. Avec une sacré vue. Un coin d'ombre. Du fior di latte, du basilic frais et une tomate à tomber. La vie, c'est tout simple finalement. On gagne le minimum vital et on le dépense en grandes aventures. Le monde est à nos pieds et la Vie, celle des découvertes, c'est maintenant. Car demain est incertain. Alors, Vivons ! 😘
I’ve been looking back at a lot of photos I’ve taken over the past couple years. This is one that shouldn’t have slipped by.
I took this photo out of pure instinct. I saw the moment, and I wanted to freeze it. It wasn’t about trying to get in the right place, or figuring out how I could take the best photo.
I pulled my camera out, and captured what was in front of me.
I have the tendency to overthink everything. But sometimes it’s all so simple. Spending time outside helps me to embrace the uncertainty. I don’t always find the answers but instead I find that I don’t always need them.
Sunset over an offshore construction rig at Cleveleys. This shot reminds me of all those 80s underwater sci-fi movies that were basically ALIEN in the sea. It's also a good example of why I prefer vintage lenses from the 70s and 80s. =========================
