Playa del Carmen, July 7-14, 2014

Until now I’d mostly been treating this blog as strictly a photo blog, without really writing any content other than adding tags to posts for ease of navigation. But I wanted to share photos from my recent travel for my job with Automattic, and my personal blog with all of my silly parenting nonsense on it seemed like a strange place to share them. So, I’m sharing them here.

We went to Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo, Mexico. In July. In July.

It was hot, y’all. And beautiful.

I took my old Nikon D70 and shot with my little 35 mm f/2.0 the whole time. I’d like to eventually get a mirrorless camera for travel, but the old D70 did a good job and I was really struck by how much lighter it is than my D7000. Plus, I didn’t have to worry so much about it getting damaged, since it isn’t my primary camera.

Should I mention that the camera took a dip in the Mexican Caribbean and came out unscathed? Though I suppose that can be attributed to a good Lowepro camera bag.

My iPhone was not so lucky, but I digress.

I was taking two courses of antibiotics for a cut on my finger while there, and I had a pretty bad allergic reaction toward the end of the trip, so I had to come home a day early. I also felt pretty “off” the entire time, so I didn’t do as much photography as I’d originally wanted to. But I’m still happy to share this photo-essay of our trip.

I’ll get the photos from Wales in April posted soon too.

So I guess this is going to become my work-related blog too. Enjoy!

  1. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time, alright – the photos are not only marvellous but redolent with good nature. (Am somewhat confused by the Dia del Muertos things, it not being the time; but I suppose that’s like Venice and carnevale masks …) Terrific post !

Logan and daddy playing, "Do you like my hat?" Oh, this girl. Gender stereotypes? Pffff. His favorite toy is actually one of the girls' baby doll strollers. So I guess giving him a marker and dry-erase book while I was making dinner was a bit of a mistake. "I'm not sleepy, mommy." Less than thirty seconds later - this. It's a good morning for a photo session! #jhp This Peanut is such a sweet, complicated, firebrand little girl. She is opinionated, whip-smart, and so, SO ferocious at times, but she's also the most tender of all three of our littles. She spent the first nine months of her life in our bed at night, and now she's started a nightly routine of sneaking down to climb between us every night. This one needs gentle handling and a wee bit more daddy and mommy time, even if she's asleep the duration of it. :) From earlier today at #lyndsfruitfarm I love these little ladies so much. Sigh :) The littlest nugget is feeling better, but I was mistaken about his teething woes. There aren't two molars coming in - there are FOUR. I can't even imagine what it must feel like. My boys at the Ohio Renaissance Festival today. All smiles at bedtime tonight. My sweet lasses :) Leaving for today's photo sessions in Sidney. These are not ideal photography conditions. #jhp
