We used to be so close. We were inseparable for years but since coming back from Kenya things have been different. I am not sure whether it was me, or the culture shock, or that cute new iphone camera that came into my life but we grew apart. I am pleased to say that Mr. Nikon (and his lenses) and I have reconciled. As is often the case when you make up after a period of indifference we are pretty hot and heavy at the moment - discovering one another all over again.
This could not have come at a better time. I am suddenly eager (read: obsessed) with capturing this lovely city of mine. I want to memorize its lines and light before we leave in 5 weeks. Last evening I got to spend a bit of time with one of my dearests, Anna, and her lovelies, K and L. She has been such a huge support to us over the planning stage of this move. She is an Aussie native and made a similar leap of faith when she moved to the US at 19. Her words of encouragement and gentle understanding of the simultaneous smallness and vastness of this great world of ours has been a huge comfort. Our babies have grown up together, we have grown old(er) together and it was such fun to capture a bit of the magic that is her little family!
