Some Scenes From The Weekend













As evidenced by the shots above, I took the details very (very) seriously this weekend... Oh and I finally let Bryan show me how to use the aperture setting on our camera (I usually just turn off the flash, point the camera at something pretty, hold my breath, and pray), thus resulting in as many photos with small items in the foreground as humanly possible.

Sorry to subject you guys to my photography lessons in real time.

Beyond Photo 101, I consumed some of the best pizza ever (here), baked (brownies and banana bread), spruced up the house a bit, and ran errands (one of which was braving IKEA on a Saturday for some gallery frames and a couple of sheepskins... oh my, do I ever have a love/hate relationship with the IKEA). My new work schedule is turning me into bit of a weekend warrior (gotta get it done before monday!!!) but no matter, as it's all worth it. For sure.

Hope your weekend was splendid friends!

I feel you on the photography front, Joslyn. And, I get ya' on the IKEA thing as well. But, in any case, it looks/sound like a wonderful weekend. And, for the record, lovely pics for sure. :)

Love all of these images friend! Nicely done. I need to experiment and take more risks with my camera....you've inspired me to do so!

Miss you! xx

As usual, the attention to detail in your home leaves me breathless. Just so darn beautiful.

It's ok, I recently discovered new settings on my lens which I've had for over 4 years...boy did I feel like a dum dum.

But it's ok because ultimately it helps you capture more beautiful moments.

Beautiful details! I love your collection of things in the 4th photo. I could look at it for hours. The mosaic tile canister and the big shell. Delish!

I am the original luddite when it comes to anything electronic, I haven't even worked out how to do the background blurry thing. Lovely photos as usual...
