Way Before Me | My Life In 35mm #2

Last time, we took my parents from childhood through to roughly high school. This time, they meet in college, get married, and go to Europe a couple times.

Way Way Before Me | My Life In 35mm #1

Things happened before I was born. Long before I was born.

That may be a difficult concept for modern young people to consider, and it took me a while to come to terms with it, but all this photographic evidence eventually won me over. Let’s explore.

Gear I Love: Fujifilm X-T1 Camera

This is a new series of posts helping to justify my Gear Acquisition Syndrome. I’m kidding about that part; I’m not justifying my behavior to anyone.

(Unless, of course, the court compels me to do so.)

(Again.)

I do buy and sell a lot of camera gear, though, so when I actually love a piece of gear, I’ve usually tried many things before it. My camera gear love is quite considered, and most certainly overthought and obsessed.

Kayaking Triple Falls at DuPont State Forest

No, I did not kayak the falls. You should know me better than that.

I did not kayak, and I didn’t fall. Okay, I did fall once, but that was later in the day at Lake Julia.

On Saturday, I headed up to DuPont as I do many weekends these days. I parked at Hooker Falls and headed up the Triple Falls trail towards – you guessed it – Triple Falls. As I approached the bottom set of falls, I saw a guy carrying a kayak up the stream towards the falls and thought to myself, “Well, this might get interesting.”

Well I tried to hike this weekend

#Snowmageddon2016: After working from home on Friday, then staying inside binge-watching Jessica Jones all day Saturday while the Upstate de-iced, I was itching to get out of the house and spend some time outdoors. It didn’t go so well.

Leah’s 5th Birthday Party

Because birthdays are a big deal, this is the second post about Leah’s birthday this year. Here’s the first.

Leah chose Puppies as the theme for her party, which worked out well, since we still had some leftover supplies from the maybe-a-bit-too-much Puppy Party that we threw Aly when she turned six.

On My Shelf: More Photography Obsession

I think that our shelves show some insight into who we are.

Our priorities, our interests, etc.

So Leah is now five. sigh.

I recently spent a long weekend in Michigan (not as long as scheduled, Thanks Delta) to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Leah’s arrival. It’s amazing how far she’s come from being born under crazy circumstances at 36 weeks – she was around 5.5 pounds when we took her home from the hospital a week later. We reviewed pictures from that wild time, but we also had the typical myriad birthday festivities.
