where it's flat

the horizon line
mollusks underfoot
wood made soft
high tide

we're familiar with this much sky.

for people who live here, its maybe too cold for the beach. for us it was perfect.

  1. the portrait of the two of you is really wonderful - the way you're resting on his shoulder and the way the tree looks like it's trying to do the same is beautiful.

  11. I'm visiting your blog for the first time, and all your photos are simply magical. I love how the portraits seem so authentic. I get a feeling that some of these are taken with a film camera. Am I right?
