It's been busy here. Photographing a few jobs, tending the garden, and moving things along. Sarah is at her camp now and the house is quieter. Miss her- but do enjoy having them busier. Gives me a chance to think about my images. Always fun to have a camera in my hands at certain times of day or when I am alone in the garden. The sea oats in the back and the Queens Anne's lace in the front bed never fail to amaze me as subjects.

The Artist Baker

I just finished looking at the Picasa album that I created about a recent visit to Andrea Lekberg's bakery- in Morristown, NJ. I had lunch that day with all the employees in the courtyard and then wandered around with my camera to make some quick snapshots of the place. I do think her's is a great story and I hope we do a project together! (To see more bakery photos click here)

July 16th and trying not to get too hot under the collar about anything... It's been warm and humid and if I can keep my outlook
on the up and up it helps everyone to do the same. Funny how mother sets the tone and the requisite pressure to be the role model for the family. Struggling with thoughts of managing the day to day, bills, repairs, meals, goals and desires all braid together. Nora is disappointed with her class ranking and tore up her transcript in disgust. I realize her concern reflects her anxiety over getting the best possible financial aid when she graduates high school as she can get. It amazes me that she has these worries at this age. I had lots of worries too at 16- but not about college. Different times have created a very different social climate. Sarah and Jacob roll along with a lot less future concerns and their general carefree attitude is a pleasure for me. A dip in a baby pool and a crossword puzzle can engage Sarah for an afternoon. Lucky girl!
