Moses is 7 months old today! He’s been with us for about 5 months now and we couldn’t love a little furry thing more. I snapped a few photos of him looking like a big adult cat on the window sill the other day. He’s still only about 7 lbs though, baby’s hopefully gonna stay little forever.
I also found a roll of film we forgot about with this photo of him in the same spot a couple months ago. I move plants and trinkets around a lot, clearly.
Various pictures we’ve taken over the summer at Rockaway Beach. Thanks GJL for no. 4 and no. 7.
A couple film snaps from my favorite part of the house. The grain of the film seems a little more honest, like we didn’t clean up for the photos or edit out the awkward parts. We’ve done a couple posts on the kitchen here and here but it seems to have changed so much since February. It’s strange looking back at old photos and seeing how much my plants have grown; they’re all old friends now. Dylan built shelves into the window to help disguise the burglar bars – definitely the biggest improvement since our last post. At one point we even had bean stalks growing up and around them.
We did something we do sometimes when there’s nothing else to do, walk until we’re tired and there’s no where else to walk. This day we went from Bushwick to Williamsburg, across the bridge to Lower East Side, down to South Street Seaport, and took the ferry back from there to Williamsburg. These photos are from standing under the Manhattan bridge on South End Avenue and on the ferry.
I went to DC and only took 5 photos. Here are 4 of them:
I went on a Maryland/DC trip a couple weekends ago with Grace. She’s from the area, her whole family is still there. We did some great thrifting outside of Baltimore on Saturday, and did stuff around DC on Sunday. Like hug a huge bulldog, go to a couple museums, walk around and eat popsicles. I’m not really into contemporary conceptual art (if something doesn’t make sense and doesn’t make the world more beautiful, I don’t see the point) but the sea of blue rubber hanging string by Jesús Rafael Soto at the Hirshhorn was fun.
We spent three days in Montauk (the tippy-top of Long Island) earlier this week to celebrate Dylan’s birthday. I don’t think I even need to say it, but it was beautiful. These photos were taken at Navy beach, a rocky beach on the Long Island Sound coast of the island. We’re both so obsessed with finding cool rocks and shells so this was a nice place to spend an afternoon. There were little fish in the water too!
Later we headed to Duryea’s Lobster Deck for lunch and hours of sitting on the deck in the sun.
This came out blurry, sorry, but it’s the only photo of the backyard at Ruschmeyer’s where we stayed. Everyone I know said to avoid Ruschmeyer’s at all costs, that it’s “a shit show”, but I’m pretty sure that’s just the weekend bar scene. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday were all very quiet. It felt like camping, but with a TV to watch the Olympics on and a wonderful breakfast to eat on the picnic tables in the sun.
Last beach day on the other coast. Fewer rocks, just as nice.
Tuesday was rainy. We rented a car to drive home, and stopped at the lighthouse on the way back.
