the Pacific

It was at this beach that I had my first touch of the Pacific Ocean (other than the water that comes into Puget Sound).

And here are the remains of the Sutro Baths. Being there, seeing this, walking among the ruins made me feel like I was walking among Greek or Roman ruins.

Northwest Folklife Festival

It’s nice to live within walking distance to¬† cool places. Saturday Josh and I traversed down Queen Anne Hill to walk around the Seattle Center and check out the Folklife Festival. I’ve never seen the place so crowded! It was such a nice day and fun time.

Camera of the Future

I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!

I plan on: editing photos, spending time outdoors, making homemade ice cream, and using my polaroid and film cameras.

Polaroid, what? Yes, I got a polaroid camera, a present from a very very lovely lady who I met up with last Saturday for some pastries, coffee, and a photowalk. I have only 4 packs of film (10 photos per pack) and it cost quite a bit, so I will be using sparingly. It’s magical though. I had never taken a polaroid picture before Saturday, and it is amazing to click the shutter and hear the camera take the photo and pop out the film.. and then to watch it develop right before your eyes! Crazy technology I tell you. Camera of the future.

Here is a shot of the camera (taken with my nikon d90)

One Year Older

Yesterday I turned 27. It sounds so much older than 26. Then again, 26 sounded so much older than 25. Today I went to the grocery store and bought a bottle of wine and didn’t get carded. This is happening more and more.

I did have a lovely weekend. The weather in Seattle was so warm. On Saturday I actually wore a tank top, skirt and flip flops in the afternoon and Josh and I brought a blanket to the park and read. So lovely.

Here’s some photos taken over the last week-ish..

Shell Beach, California

After Pismo Beach, we headed over to Shell Beach, a short drive away. Josh’s mom chilled and Josh and I climbed on rocks looking for tide pools.
