things I want to remember about camp:

bench monday antics

sharing diet cokes & chats with Kim and going to the ice machine together.

the picnic that Myriam gathered for us

printing from my iphone

the banner

watching the final slideshow by Kristi & Neil

tracey skipping down the path to say hello for the first time

the silent shoot (photo above)

chris’s hotwheels and flip camera conversation

kristin & meredith and i at midnight, in our beds with our laptops, in silence and doing what we do

beautiful first dinner with candles and magic

the campfire story

the giddy feeling of meeting everyone and saying hello for the first time

going to target

seeing the magic created by lensbaby

the fact i powered through jetlag

excited by the washing line of photos

the magic makers

the sea air and the fog

holding prints in my hand

the pelicans flying in and out of the fog

a sense of belonging

the non-pose pose

conversations and connecting at mealtimes

the lab and the buzz there

the smiles, hugs, laughter and the click of shutters.

{i’m sure there’s more… which i’ll add in time}

    if only it could have gone on forever.

    okay, maybe not forever, cause there are loved ones and all. but maybe it could happen every month? or quarterly? twice a year?

    ok, I’ll settle for once a year, but will need to start printing things big on the wall to remember. xo
