Lately on Instagram: June 15-21,2017

Another week has come and taken off, it’s been really interesting living without air conditioning in this rental house.  (quite awful really),  I’ve been spending as much time in cooler places, as possible.   We have no air conditioning due to the ‘landlord’ misrepresenting the home via advertising, but that’s a completely other story, not to get into right now—

Here’s the latest on Instagram (and staying out of the Nevada heat)

  1. Pier 39: San Francisco

One of my favorite places: Pier 39, there is no other place to be, as near the ocean and ‘the city’ as possible for me.

2. Rancho San Rafael Regional Park

Sooo many beautiful flowers at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, I went there to explore the golden hour, and to chase the light.

3.  Reading = Better Writing

Books (Canon EOS 5D mark iii; Canon 100mm; F/5.6; 1/160; ISO 125)

A little backstory(ha!), my daughter and I started writing a YA novel years ago, and I was inspired to pull it back out and get it finished,  and… of course I was practicing with my Photek Sunlighter ii, and Canon speedlite, incase you were wondering…

5.  Father’s Day

Father’s Day + D’s 4 year old birthday:  Can you believe it, his parents gave him a ‘real’ motorcycle, ironically, he was more thrilled with his Lego sets.

6. Swings

Yes, I’m still reading this amazing book, it’s the type of book, that is a deep and focused read.  5/5 stars so far!

9.  J’s Wedding Toasting Jars

Planning my daughter’s wedding long distance is a a challenge, but really fun…
