Brrrrrrrr. I hate winter.

Damn gloves. Didn’t help too much. It was like 11 degrees today…or something. But it was sunny and I wanted to take my film camera out and test some different aperture settings…it’s been a while and I have to refresh my memory on all the photography basics since one thing I’m vowing to do before a much needed trip to New Delhi (for a cousin’s wedding) and then Italy (yay!!) in a few weeks is to get my new Crown Graphic 4×5 camera up and running. Which means I need to remember how manual settings work. Which is also how I think truly beautiful photographs are crafted–with direct and clear intent. I guess often it’s just luck…but maybe that’s what separates photographers from everyone else. Someday I’d like to actually be at least almost a photographer.

Anyway, today’s bitter cold was an excellent reason to take my newly completely completed best friend cardigan (and aspen hat) out for a spin. And did she perform. I stayed relatively warm, and with the seams finally looking good, I love her!

But not enough to smile when it’s this goddamn cold out.

    You look SO cute, Mona, you are really rocking that Twinkle! It is bizarrely cold in Johannesburg today, and I am wearing my Shopping Tunic. Inconvenient Truth stuff, since it is summer in Africa…
