on sunday, andy and i rented a board from third coast surf shop. we took turns in the beach break at union pier. the waves were so huge. ha – not really. but they sure were fun to play in after being off a surf board for a little less than a year. can’t wait to get out there again this fall. . .
i would like an apricot flakey from the lucky platter. please and thank you.
ten years ago i went on an adventure to ecuador and peru. my father bought me a lovely old pentax camera with a 50mm lens as a going away present. i have been shooting with it lately. i love hearing the click of the shutter. i love the delayed gratification – viewing the captured moments and images after some time has passed. and shooting with the pentax makes me feel closer to dad.
the last photo is of “falling cloudberries,” Tessa Kiros’ beautiful follow-up to “apples for jam.” (actually, she may have written cloudberries first) i return to her cookbooks as much for the photography as i do for the delicious recipes.

some shots from an all-star day in the middle of america.
i love the vibrant color that pops off the warn out factories and buildings – as though insisting: “there’s life in me yet.” and the soft images of the rolling farms we passed on our way to three oaks for a movie. by the way, if you haven’t seen “away we go” yet, i recommend it.
