I haven’t made one of those posts in a long time. (Since I haven’t does that mean I’m boring now?) Also this post is a little late since its already Thursday and the weekend is fast approaching again!
Kriss and I drove to the Lake Louise Fairmont for a bit of tea over the weekend and that was pretty great.
We hit the highway and it was super sunny and bone dry which is always A+, and as we got closer to the mountains, we got more and more excited…but how can you not be when this is your view?
One of my favourite things about driving to the mountains is that they seem to sneak up on you. One minute you see them in the distance and then BAM you’re there.
The roads were quite busy (long weekend, duh) but pulling up and seeing the gorgeousness of the chateau made it worth the wait.
There is honestly nothing that can send my heart racing like the words: Pitti Uomo.
Pitti Immagine Uomo, held twice a year is still my favourite fashion event EVER. Even though it’s all about menswear and my wardrobe is 0% made up of it, the street style seen at the event is the best in the world. Like every year, here are some of my favourites from the show that passed two weeks ago.
Did you know that this blog’s second birthday has come and gone? At one point, this blog served as a place for me to post my 365 project, you know, the one where you take a photo every day for a year? I don’t think I ever made it past day 120. It was a really good exercise to force myself to get out there and shoot, but I found that by the middle of it, I just felt burnt out. I think at the time I needed that project to keep me busy, there was a lot of things going on at the time and just thinking about it now is kind of painful.
After 365 had failed, my focus shifted to taking photos of what I was doing on the weekend with my friends and this blog also served as a way to narrate and share my travel photos, because let’s be honest: I’ve been stinking lucky to travel the amount I have in the past few years.
Now I find myself at another crossroad and the activity in my little corner of the internet (read: this blog) has all but fizzled out. I’ve been (slowly) recovering from an injury and it’s almost completely killed my creativity. It’s hard to push myself to do anything when I don’t want to even get out of bed, but I’m trying.
One nice thing that’s come out of all of this is that I’ve got a new project kicking around in my brain. It’ll probably take me a couple of months to figure out how I’m going to go about it, but I’m starting to get excited and feel closer to normal now. I’m not sure if I’ll be posting it on this blog or my portfolio (because I have one of those now that I’m almost ready to make the jump to something new!) but I can figure that out somewhere down the road.
When I contemplate what’s going to happen in the upcoming year, I think about all the change that is ahead of me. My degree is going to be wrapping up pretty soon, and I might be changing my area code for a while as well. It’s all quite exciting and I’m starting to feel all grown up which is funny because I always told myself (and will continue to) that I was never going to grow up.
If you’ve manage to read that wall of text and have been following my blog for the last while, thank you for being there for me for the past two years, I’m not completely sure where I’ll be heading next, but I want you to stick around and be there with me every step of the way.
Quick candids of some of my teammates from World Championships last weekend…and not a single photo from the actual competition in sight.
