Instax / Film

I somehow woke up at 6am on Sunday, but stayed in bed listening to the rain beat against the bedroom window. It doesn’t rain much here, so when it does, I can really appreciate it.

Later in the afternoon, the skies cleared and we drove along the coast listening to my October Mix. I just made another one, you can listen to it here. Just a bunch of songs i’ve been listening to a lot lately.

We walked along the cliffs, down a long winding staircase to the beach. I sat alone for a while, watching the little birds run back and forth against the waves. The wind started to pick up, so I shot some photos, watched the sunset and left. It felt so good to get out of the house–no packing, no work, just wind and ocean and scattered clouds above.

    What a perfect way to spend a day off. I love how you shoot with the instax. I adored your last mix and I’m looking forward to this one.

    thanks, alexandria! i’m having a hard time getting the horizon line straight, it seems a little off–i have to lift the right side up a little more to compensate. : )

    I’m inspired to get an Instax because of your photos… so nice to read your posts again. I love the idea of no packing and just going for a beautiful drive under the awesome clouds and sky.

    I think this just solidified the decision to get the Instax for the guestbook.

    Also, feel the same way about the rain. I long for more rain days when they come this infrequently.
