soft summer.






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.
