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 !

They're a little excited. Thankful. Keith and I are out for an afternoon date, and I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed while he drove. I saw this photo of @samheughan on an Outlander page, and it struck me -  my husband totally has Jamie Fraser hair. After the bitter, extended winter last year, I'm sure my fellow Ohioans were dismayed (best case) or horrified (worst case) at today's substantial snowfall. I'm definitely not looking forward to the long cold months ahead, but I'm trying to stay positive. Upside of winter? Cute hats that hide unwashed mom-hair, and bulky coats that obscure my wrinkled teeshirt! What's your upside? :) :) Pea and me :) Bedbug. :) These two :) :) "Knock us a kiss, love." My little BFF. She's becoming such an interesting, kind, and gentle little person. Definitely not a baby any more. :) I love that this is how Olivia draws herself. :) Logan and daddy playing, "Do you like my hat?" Oh, this girl.
