Fayette, New York: Peter Whitmer Cabin

I thought I would resume the sharing of our vacation photos. These were all shot on a Nikon N80 with Fuji 400h. I am amazed at how much I have grown in photography in just the past three months. I am thankful for how confident film is making me. I do love these photos so very much. I was in the mood to play with the sun, and rimming. Very pleased with the results. (SO geek I know.)

Anyway, I loved it here. LOVED. The Peter Whitmer Cabin. This is where the LDS church was organized. The land and surrounding areas are so beautiful. Fields and trees as far as the eye can see. Breathtaking. My kids loved running around in the grass, the log fences were TDF. Sigh. I long to go back. I would move to upstate New York in an instant. Truly, I would. Especially since my BFF Bec now lives there. T'would be a double bonus.

Wow, a family photo! Truly. We were lucky to get a handful of these on our trip. VERY fun.
Please note I am 12, YES 12 lbs thinner NOW than in this photo, and my hair is super long. I regretfully inform you that those 12lbs were lost from one boobs. :(

Uhm, this melts me.

I need to get Hubbs into some flip flops. I love this man.

Picking grass. A childhood pastime.

Me trying to get a perfect 'one year old' photo.

I think I got one.

Hope you are enjoying your holidays, and that everything is merry and bright. They are here.

So usually I just enjoy your photos selfishly and never comment but I have to tell you that these photos are beautiful! Kim, you are so, so talented. Don't move to NY, move to DC so you can take all of my family photos!

Emily said...

Absolutely gorgeous photos, and yes, you got the perfect one-year-old shot. She's gorgeous...just like her mom. And wouldn't it be great if we could select where we lost the weight?

I have been terrified of shooting in the sun but these make me want it to come out! You are amazing. ps I was wrong about what I told you last night. I think what actually throws me off on your writing is that you write exactly how you speak and it is refreshing and wonderful and something I long to be able to do! LOVED last night. You, are great.
