I remember when I was in high school, the teacher who taught my photography class gave us a long lecture about what digital cameras were, and why they would never become a tool of professional photographers. These days I carry a camera with me in my pocket everywhere I go, and I instantly share my images with hundreds of people at once. It’s a crazy world we’re living in, isn’t it? This image is straight from my iphone, cropped and watermarked only – no editing or sharpening. Amazing what a few years and a little bit of technological advancement will do.
March already! I can’t believe how fast this year is already flying by. Maybe it’s the fact that it was in the 80s today or maybe it’s all of the blossoms on our fruit trees in the backyard, but I feel like we have fast-forwarded squarely into the middle of spring (maybe even summer?)
I was a little bit worried when I started my #365daysofsky project on instagram that I’d have trouble taking a photo every single day without repeating myself, but it seems as thought I needn’t have worried. Even on bright blue days there’s always a sunset, and it’s fun to find new ways to frame the sky. It’s such an amazing thing, isn’t it? It’s always in motion and the clouds on one day are never the same as the next. I’ve found that with the exception of extremely rainy days (where it’s hard to get outside without getting my iphone all wet) there really hasn’t been a single day that I wasn’t excited to go out and see what the sky had in store for me.
So without further ado, here is the collection of all of my February sky shots – I don’t put them together until the very end of the month so seeing them all in one spot is a fun surprise. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of our beautiful California skies.
This post is the second in a set of monthly recaps of my instagram daily sky series. If you missed the first month, check out January skies right here.
Today I went to help my sister with some of the work she’s doing for the March of Dimes’ march for babies in San Diego – she’s volunteered to hold informational meetings for people who are starting walking teams for this year’s event. Allison is an amazing walking team captain and I am so proud of the work that she’s done raising money for the March of Dimes over the last few years. She’s set up a facebook page for this year’s walk and also an online auction where you can bid on some wonderful items – including a portrait session by yours truly.
One of my all-time favorites, Audrey Hepburn + dancing + Paris. Tell me, what’s not to love about all of those things together?
Sometimes I look at her and wonder where my baby has gone. She’s at an age where I feel like I can so easily imagine how she might look when she’s older. I wonder if she’ll keep her curly hair.
