a rebellious weekend.
For the weekend only, I will be having a little fling with this guy…
This shot of the borrowed Canon Rebel was taken by my lil old fujifilm that has some funky white balance issues (that won’t seem to change). I must admit that photography is something I never really considered growing up and even well into my college days. That is pretty unfortunate because I did go to a college focused on the arts and communication, where I could have really gotten my foot in the door. Other than photography though, I really have a passion for styling. If I could, I would style food, clothes, rooms, etc. at all times. When I was at my aunt’s farm last weekend, my mother kept telling me what would be a lovely picture as she walked through the garden with me. I guess that is what happens when you are raised by a stylist and a creative director, constant art direction. My father, the creative director, let me borrow this from his company for the weekend only, and I am almost feeling as though this is too much of a tease. Not only do I have no clue what I am doing with this baby, but I also have no time today to read the entire manual or play with it like it deserves. This little fling won’t get the proper attention it needs because I have to head out to see the real man in my life after being apart for much too long. Poor rebel, maybe I can play with you tomorrow…
This morning, I already had planned on making Angela’s Spelt Pancakes but tripled the recipe for my sister and father to enjoy with me. In the batter went some organic blueberries and I made a scrambled banana (mash) like yesterday to top them. This time I also added some mashed black raspberries for some pink action.
I feel like such a newbie with the Rebel…after attempting to take a photo of my bite, I ended up with a fuzzy mess. If anyone has any tips for close-ups and which settings I should use, etc. I would really appreciate it!
The pancakes were divine though, and cooked in coconut oil for some nice crispy edges.
Heading out the door right after I publish this, I am taking my sister on a little run. She hasn’t had time for it these last few months so I am going to attempt to slowly build up her endurance and speed with the walking/running method. No one wants injury’s here!
A fun afternoon and night with V is in the works so I won’t be able to post until tomorrow. I will leave you with some shots I promised of my Aunt’s farm in Blauvelt, NY. Remember, she sells at the Nyack Farmer’s Market under the name Blue Field Farm, so stop by if you live nearby.
Valerian Root…helps ya sleep.
Lettuce that she says is no longer good…um, I’ll take some!
Cali poppies, my Cali boy’s favorite flower, and another beauty behind.
Peas, one of my absolute favorite veggies.
I will always be a garlic lover…
The back of the barn…
Hiding Strawbs…almost time for them at the farmer’s markets!
Currants, not even close to ripeness.
-Do you have a DSLR? I would love some tips since I am hoping to get one in the near future…
