a summer weekend

i have developed the habit of almost exclusively taking pictures with my phone. it is ok, having it with me at almost all times, very handy, quick to take out and put back into my pocket without much of an interruption in my day to day flow. also, it is easy to share special little moments and moments of ordinary beauty on social media.

but there are times when i just itch to grab my big camera again. the whole act of holding a camera that actually weighs something makes me focus on the beauty of these moments in a whole other way.

a lazy sunday afternoon in the garden, noticing all the goodness and beauty around me, with my "real" camera in hand.

we had a full weekend, time spent with friends in the countryside, lots of harvesting of cucumber, tomato, blackberries. a lunch date with my 90-year-old grandma. and sitting on the hollywood swing chatting with my parents while the kids played in the garden until the sun went down. it was good!

joining karen for weekending. have a lovely start to your week!

I think I may be one of the only people left in the world who Doesn't carry a cell phone ;)

How nice to have time with your grandmother, it sounds so wonderful!

I have been like you, I use my phone more often than the big camera and once in a while I have the urge to pull the big one out and see my world through the lens. Lovely summery photos!!

I love the colors in the first photo. My camera has been sitting idle for a couple of months. Thanks for the inspiration to pick it up and head outside.
