fox trot


we were just learning how to use our hasselblad. we took a whole roll, and then realized we never removed the dark slide.

we drove back a half hour on our ten hour road trip to retake the pictures. we couldn't just leave those pictures behind us.

love,
r&y

moustache grills


i still wonder how we got them to sit still enough to take this picture. or not to fall off...

i see this truck as an old grandad with babes on his lap.

or eyebrows...

they grow up too quickly. 

love,
me

the leaf of the wisteria through which the sun darts his rays. murasaki shikibu.


i found myself falling in love with the wisteria. we arrived in france just when the wisteria began to bloom. and they hung so delicately. they were soft purple, and the leaves just beginning to unfold.

it might have been a chilly start to a late spring in france, but it was the perfect time for new blossoms, and we saw many of them.

love,
me

young at heart and body





she never gets her hair wet. and he never gets out until he breaks a bone (whether that be a rib or an ear drum...).

uncontrollably excited to spend the long weekend with my family. all 37 of them.

what keeps you young?

love,
r&y

cote d'azur


southern france in april.

we expected a warm beach to lounge on and get a tan.

instead, we discovered a small town where mom bought a lamp the size of me, we hiked to where nietzsche wandered to find inspiration for his writing, and we explored the prison made famous by a man in an iron mask.

the stairs worn in the centre over hundreds of years of prison guards and prisoners still capture me.

love,
me
