summer in a nutshell

summerlove - 01

it’s september 8th and i haven’t shared any photos from june-august! i guess the time has come to share them all in one. i have failed, once again, at properly documenting my summer. let’s face it, though, i live in the woods and taking my camera outside for photos is downright hazardous without slathering on an obscene amount of bug spray. and i really didn’t want to put on a lot of bug spray this year!! this was also my first summer in 3 years not spending 4-8 weeks in a tent! even though summer in the cabin is still quite rustic (do you pee outside before bed every night? year round? no? i do! it’s crazy), it’s not quite at the same level as camping out in a tent.

my summer was still fairly well documented with my phone, and i upgraded too, so that was enjoyable. anything i took with my dslr pretty much revolved around my various visits to maine. the ocean drew me to it much more than the mountains this year. let’s take a look, shall we?…

^^ i braved the mosquitoes for one quick shot of the summer light near the cabin.

the last photos i have to share from the summer are from a short hike in the belknaps in new hampshire. my friend and i explored this place and discovered amazing views and a gazillion wild blueberries! one of new hampshire’s best-kept blueberry secrets, if you ask me!
