Saturday...





I went out early this morning to pop into the farmers' market for a few tuberose stems (to get blessed after Dormition Liturgy on Monday morning) and a dried hydrangea bloom for the coffee table.  The children asked for kettle corn and so they scampered off to buy it while I paid for my flowers.  We had a few other errands to run and then we stayed indoors the rest of the day to escape the oppressive heat and humidity of August.  

I was at loose ends tonight.  My husband was preparing for his sermon tomorrow and I'm bored with the Olympics.  I decided to watch Brooklyn and wasn't expecting much since I really didn't care for the book.  It is rare to feel that a film is better than the novel, but in my opinion, that is the case with Brooklyn.  Eilis was so much more likeable on screen than on the page.  I'm looking forward to the film adaptation of The Light Between Oceans and hope that it is as wonderful as the book is.

I shot all of the above photographs on my trusty Nikon, as opposed to my good ole' camera phone.  I've been toying with the idea of trying to really make the effort to use the Nikon for blog pictures  instead of using the ones I shoot for Instagram.  I used to pick up the camera every day to take photos, and I can see that I'm starting to loose the meager photography skills that I once had.  There are so many things that I wish I could be proficient in and make time for (gardening, homemaking, blogging, photography, drawing, knitting, cooking, baking, reading, music, etc.), but there's not much time to indulge.  Maybe doing just a little of each everyday will be enough over a lifetime.

I know this struggle very well. I find that with my better camera phone + edit features via IG or google photos, I don't use my Canon as much anymore; mainly my Smart Phone. They can take really good pictures now!

I have a hard time doing all I wish to do too; we just have a lot of other responsibilities that take precedence over them.

I totally agree with you about Brooklyn! I enjoyed the movie much better then the book. Great casting!

I'm curious to see if Light Between Oceans holds up in movie form. I've been trying to dig my big Canon out more too. These phones have gotten so smart, doing all the focusing for us- but I like the intentionality that using the big camera brings. It's a balance for sure!

I also enjoyed the film more than the book.
