Find a heart that will love you at your worst, and arms that will hold you at your weakest.
I’ve been scouting these 3 palm trees for awhile now (which is always a great excuse to get to the beach with the family for an evening picnic). At times, there’s an interesting cloud formation as the backdrop, at others it’s clear skies. Sometimes the light is “almost” just right, others it’s off.
This is the latest photograph, taken with my iphone. Still considering various compositions, and whether to go color or black and white when I lock-down the final photo with the film camera. In the meantime…
Pulling from the Idyllwild archives today. With temps in the 90’s (Fahrenheit) around here these past few days, it’s nice to revisit some photographs from our trip to Idyllwild a while back…thinking about the crisp air, mountain views, small town vibe, and time with family. Plans will be made to make it back, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Ella and I rose at 5 am, and headed out the door well ahead of the 6:41 am sunrise. We settled into our pre-scouted spot at the harbor, set up the cameras, and enjoyed the quiet of the dark morning and gentle conversation before making photographs.
This was one of the last images created before heading home (just as the rest of the family was waking up).
Dana Point, California. An hour or so after sunrise.
Kai has taken to the Polaroid SX-70.
I’m pleased to see him leaning toward analog tools.
This is one of my favorite places in our home to photograph the kids, as the mid afternoon light creeps across the living room.
