week twenty-seven : the first of july...

Oh, my heavens. I have no words. Or maybe I have to many words. Sometimes I get those two things mixed up.

I made a calendar in my art journal for the month of july and I've had something going on like every single day (baseball games, hitchcock in theater - what is this, 1948?, starting work, film class at the library, meeting someone tomorrow to help her learn to use her camera, then I have a surprise photo shoot that I won't talk about until later, dropped a sister off at the airport for a three-week trip, and a about a million other things that I don't have the brain capacity to think about at the minute. goodness.) 

I had a really fun week, but I can't exactly say I enjoyed photographing it. To be honest, I don't love the light in these and light is my favorite thing about photography. looking at these pictures, quite honestly, just makes me kinda sad. But I did it, whether I'm proud of it or not...

So here's my first week (and change!) from July. Make sure to link up with Rosi from Everyday Joy for our Thirty-One Days of Summer!

day one: my younger sister has gotten into lettering. more power to ya, girl friend.
 day two : I'm trying hard to remember what kept us out late, but my brain is drawing a blank? I just remember being exhausted and thinking about all the things I hadn't done... and then just going to bed. Now that I think about it, maybe it was a baseball game? They won, whatever day we went.

day three: ice coffee? yes, please!

day four: happy forth of july! (I'm not gonna lie: my firework photography sucks. time to move on.)
day five : muffins. channeling my inner Algy from importance of being earnest. Oh, Oscar Wilde. *deep sign for such beautiful language*
day six : as of last saturday... WE HAVE A NEW ROOF!!
day seven : there was a beautiful, soft light shining in my window... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
day eight : Went to see Rope at the louisville palace theatre. it's just got one of those vibes, ya know?
day nine : went to the farmers market and came back with blueberries. I mean, why else would you ever go to the farmer's market, amiright?


  1. your photography for real gives me life IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL AND LIKE IT MAKES ME FEEL AT HOME. gah xxx

  2. Photos look great even with the lack of light! Seems raw and real to me. Now I want iced coffee!
