#SotoSummer

Potpourri

We took advantage of free museum day at the MFAH to enjoy Jesús Rafael Soto’s floating installation. It was quite crowded with visitors and Olivia was scared at first, but when she felt more comfortable in the space, she was running through the curtains of plastic and thoroughly enjoying the experience on her own.

I love all the crepe myrtle during summer time. It sort of makes up for not having all those giant rhododendron trees that are always so majestic and beautiful in all those fancy fashion magazines. I took my old 50mm lens out for a shoot today and forgot how soft and dreamy the quality of the focus can be. I normally don’t shoot self portraits, but my sister is slowly learning to compose beautifully on her own.

…and I’m slowly embracing the weird splash of freckles across my face as I get older

Houston / weekends

Saturday Brunch with my two favorite girls. We stopped by to check out Common Bond and was glad to see that the food was as good as the hype, especially the bakery goods and coffee. Olivia is getting to that age where she is so much more curious about her surroundings, and with all the tall windows and clattering from the baristas’ counter, she just couldn’t help to stay in her chair for too long, often getting up to point at a reflection in the window or clamoring to sample out every bit of food on the table.
