first photos from my new iphone 5. it's so enjoyable going ultralight, a fine change from carrying a heavy camera, lenses, on hikes especially. the phone weighs less than a bottle of water. and takes pretty good pictures! the video is an experiment, i'm not sure if it will work. hannah says it's the world's most boring, but, it was a first try, laughing at her comment. for days now fog has settled, laying low in hills of coastal chaparral, making solitary hikes an ethereal experience (thinking of you melissa). we found the sun though, east of the mountains, in santa barbara county's wine country. in a rural inland valley we attended a charming country wedding, a hand made sign greeted all 'welcome city folk!'. vows were exchanged under a century old california oak. we sipped cranberry vodka in iced mason jars and carried rice paper parasols for shade, children played barefoot in the grass. i kind of wished for my camera then, it was all so photogenic.

p.s. happy father's day (a very sweet 'card' from a favorite place, love the then and now photos)
