Our first day in Wales

Our first day on Angelsey, North Wales is always a bit like a dream.  We are totally jet lagged and tired, we eat all our favorites foods (the kids love english sausages & batten burg cakes!), and we get up very late.  Love the later summer nights when the sun goes down around 11pm.

It was chilly but looking for things in the rock pools is always fun and walking along the cliffs with your hair blowing in the wind is the greatest feeling. I was glad I remembered to pack our raincoats.















hi. I'm back :-)

I haven't posted in a long long long time.  My last post was on may25th and that is the day I left for Europe.  I went to Wales and France.  My internet connection in Francs was so terrible that I couldn't upload images, so I never updated my poor abandoned blog.
I am sorting though all my photos now, so I will update al the ones I love most on the blog.

I will start with photos from our trip.  We left from JFK, flew to Dublin, took the taxi across town, and got on the ferry to go to Holyhead in North Wales.  A LOOOOONG trip, but it is always so nice when nana is waiting for us when we get off the ferry and we get "home" to a good cup of tea and then a little walk by the sea to get our lungs full of fresh air.



















thank you for looking and coming back to this blog!  I appreciate it.

much love

Léa.

PS: these were two rolls of film that i used to test the camera, and i was happy to find out the camera works ;-)

a late afternoon walk  at the lake.

We are heading to Wales today and we will miss the beautiful New-England lakes and our friends (but not the mosquitoes, ticks  & bears.)   yes we saw a big black BEAR for real a couple of weeks ago, in our back yard.  scary.  I bought the dog in and had not time to take a photo.  I was  a little scared too. I admit.

three kids, one roll, once a month. in NYC.


I shot quite a few rolls of my kids this month and it was hard to choose which one for this project (one kid, one roll, once a month) .  Initially I had shot a roll of black and white for the project , but I am not crazy about the photos, so I will share our trip to NYC with the kids' cousins. We took the ferry to go to Staten Island, and then we wandered through the streets of NYC and had a sandwich along the Hudson in Manhattan.  It was such a wonderful day.  
Please follow the link I am posting at the end of this to go through the blog circle of mamas shooting film and taking photos of their littles and not so littles!  All these mamas have been wonderfully supportive and loving as we are all learning and re-learning to shoot film. 

I know this is a roll of kids, but I included some on NYC  because I am hardly ever in NYC, and I just loved to include the context of these.

This was shot on Portra 400, on my vivitar SLR with my helios 44-2 lens.   (processed and developed by the FIND lab)






 i know this is blurry and all but I just love it :-)
