Lately everything’s been coming along in bits and pieces. Little digestible bites to enjoy and take in: from the arrival of a package, where an unknown object is cocooned in the familiar brown, to a stolen lunch with a friend on a Monday afternoon at a new Whole Foods where industrial barrels of olive oil are ready to be dispensed into tiny plastic bottles.
All the little scenes are ripe for capturing on my handy iphone — that trusty co-pilot for all my adventures. This is especially true when the massive DSLR really can’t come traipsing through backyard leaves to reach first fall bonfires or through the rusty crevices of a crumbling mansion as Chris and I search for hidden, treasured furniture.
