April :: Points North

Tomorrow morning Tim and I are heading North for a few days. First to Berkeley to see Natalie Chanin and finally be able to touch and feel her work in person.

Then down down down the coast, Big Sur style. It might be a bit gloomy, cloudy, cool and rainy but I do not care. We need a little bit of a break from the norm right about now.

We are heading out with a rental lens. Canon 24-70 2.8. Last time we rented a lens we ended up buying it. Dangerous practice, this lens renting. I played with it a bit today to get the feel. Know what it feels like? Heavy. Whew. That thing packs on the pounds. But, oh, how I love the results.

(Don't ask me why they are sitting on the sidewalk. Sigh.

And before we head out, I did manage to finish a task I set for myself. All birthday invites inked up and ready to be sent out. More on that next week.

First of all, have an awesome, awesome time.

Second of all, those photos are awesome and that lens sound badass.

It's gloomy here too, but I don't mind. All the more reason to be all up on each other.

That skirt is already stunning - all those little stitches!

Those photos are insane. Good insane.

And whoa. You did little puzzle invites? Cool.

Have a fantastic time!
