Maine Summer, Personal

September 16, 2013


A month in Maine. This summer was a mellow one -hanging with the family and spending as much time as possible in the water. The children, Drew, and Chaco were like a family of seals -swimming all around the cove and not caring if the water was warm one day and freezing the next. The song for the slideshow is always hard to find but this cover by Cat Power seemed most fitting.

All the photos were taken with the Fuji x100s. I also took a LOT of iphone photos this year -I may have actually worked harder on creating those images because it was so fun to edit them right away and post them to Instagram!  Also- somehow I didn’t take any photos of my brother and his beyond-lovely girlfriend Lena but they were there with us and are wonderful humans and I’m totally annoyed at myself for missing that chance.  I think it’s a sign of how chilled out I get -it always seems like there will be time to do what you want to do…  Somehow 30 days just drifts past and you spend the last 2 days scrambling to spend meaningful time together and insisting that a trip to the town dump to drop off recycling counts as “bonding”.

In any case, it was a happy month and I’m just so grateful that we escape to the beautiful coast of Maine every summer to be with family and friends and swim like seals.  xo
