Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm getting quite ready for cooler weather! I know, it's definitely a case of "the grass is always greener..." It doesn't seem that long ago that I was aching for summer. Unfortunately, this summer has been unusually hot and humid, making it kind of difficult to enjoy to the fullest. Plus, my swimsuit broke, and I'm still on the hunt for the perfect one...suggestions, anyone?
Shelby (flickr, tumblr) and I were finally able to get together for our first collaboration! Her camera started acting up towards the end, but in true Shelby fashion, she got some really lovely shots. These pictures were taken on the long bike trail near my house; it's been a favorite photo location of mine for years now. We got absolutely eaten alive by mosquitoes (over 40 bites apiece!) but had a wonderful time. Since it was close to sunset, the light through the trees was gorgeous - almost otherworldly in places, honestly - and there was a delightful soft breeze. We talked about life and silly things and future plans and it was just what I needed. We weren't without our battle scars, but really, it was a perfect summer evening.
