Lovely, lovely, lovely spring days. Time with family and friends, time to work, time to read and sip rosewater lemonade, time to play, time for a Friday night riverside fish fry, time for blossom-peeping walks around the neighborhood and time to relax.

As I explore the art of photography I am enjoying how creative of a medium it can be. I’m currently loving all of the pinhole cameras and photography I’ve come across. GREAT stuff! So beautiful and dreamy. It’s cool because when you take a picture with a pinhole camera you never really know what you’re…
