good things in greyscale – memories of europe revisited.
for clothing, decor, and design, i love all things black and white.
for photography, i love captures in colour.
my best friend snapped these pictures throughout our european adventure. it was fun to compare my film images with her digital ones. hers are sharper, brighter, more refined. mine are muted, noisy, soft.
i played around with effects to see some of her images (she took over 1000!) in black and white, and i was surprised with how i loved the result.
i always thought one should capture/view europe in full colour, but there's something magical and timeless with greyscale. do you agree?

sugar cookies are an annual tradition. icing them is therapeutic.
this year i experimented with blending food colourings: brought in lilac, teal, lime green.

*retrospective note: christmas came and went too quickly this year. then again—doesn't it always?

when you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. for the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.
— john lennon

earnest ice cream
this local company dreams up and creams up the smoothest, sweetest treats. i've tried everything from oatmeal + brown sugar, to whiskey hazelnut, to chocolate licorice, to mint chip. i've got pints of pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and eggnog waiting in the freezer for the most appropriate time for consumption. which is any time, really.
