Hello bloggy friends! Today I thought I’d share a few photos that I took on my way home from an evening spent out with my family yesterday.
One thing you should know about me is that I really can’t function with the hot, humid weather (or cold, damp weather). As a matter of fact I’ve been known to describe myself as temperature intolerant (I sound like a whole lot of fun, don’t I). Anyhow…I could possibly bear the miserable Oklahoma Summertime heat with almost silence if it were not for the fact that it literally traps me indoors for months on end. I usually wait to dash out to the grocery store in the evening when it’s a more doable degree outside, like 94…just kidding, it’s still miserable at 94. If I do brave an outing in the heat of the day, I always end up home with a migrane, ruing the day.
Needless to say, all this heat and being a shut-in tends to put a damper on outdoor photo taking (as in, I cannot go outside for fear of combustion). From the months of May-September then November-March I truly pine for the golden hour* that I am either too roasting or too frozen to enjoy.
*That magical time of golden-hued light found in the early morning and evening hours that makes photo taking all the more spectacular.
Anyhow…I’m writing out all of this (very long story) so that I can share my glee with you…I got to bask in one such lovely Golden Hour yesterday. Woohoo! The temperature was a reasonable 82ºF (still hot…but not bad compared to normal) and there was a soft breeze dancing by and keeping me cool-ish.
I could have stood by the roadside and taken a thousand and one photos if only I didn’t have over an hour-long car ride home ahead of me, and a sleepy 12-year old mewling at me to “Please come onnnn and get back in the carrrr Mooommmm.” Anyhow…this one perfect moment ought to hold me for another month of not-so-perfect. Hooray! xo Ez
All photos by Ez Pudewa (me). Also, I want to note that I’ve been trying to wean myself off of Photoshop dependency, so I’m forcing myself to upload my unadulterated photos (flaws and all – all I’ve done is crop a few of them). It’s a good practice for me in letting things go, and not fixating on the small things that really don’t matter.
