As you might remember, our last seaside vacation was tainted with our darling dog’s death. This tragic event obviously ruined the whole thing, and also forever made this trip a painful memory. So painful that the hundred +some pictures I had made prior to Cannelle’s death have stayed stored on my computer, and didn’t find their way to the blog.
I just feel it’s time to make a vacation pictures post like I always normally do. Cannelle pictures are bittersweet, but more sweet than bitter, I have trouble associating anything but love and great joy with her little face.
Prior to the tragic day, everyone were enjoying themselves thoroughly
Me on the last, pinto horse, and Anais just in front on me on the fat sorrel
ALL shots with the Sony A7 (except the horse pictures), with either the OM 50/1.8 or the Sony 16-70/4 Zeiss
View from the yard, the beach is 5 minutes away by foot
“Lumière bretonne” : Britanny light. Unique
Anaïs *loved* Cannelle, and vice versa
But *who* didn’t love Cannelle, truly ?!
Extended DR is one precious thing to have there
Forgive the crappy pics : taken by my mom-in-law with her Lumix compact
My mom in law can get really creative with her framing 😉
She loves to behead those she doesn’t like, lol
When she gets the whole scene, the Lumix does well enough
I always go to the same “dude stables” near the “plage de la Torche”
The horses barely avoided the slaughterhouse, but loping on the beach is priceless
And that week another major thing happened. A happy one, this time
Marla lost the stabilizers !
Took her about three minutes to figure it out. Daddy gave a last push…
… and she was on her own
Boy, how time flies. I remember her learning to ride a bike at all, at age two, in the very same house !
and here’s proof !
Can’t believe she’s getting so big either
Yeah, five years ago those two looked liked that… Mind boggling.
First duty upon arrival : lawn mowing
Or pretending to
So pretty. So sweet
with the Sigma 70-200/2.8
Hmmm… that’s a lot of pictures right there. I guess I should split the bulk and make a Part II later. I hope I didn’t bore the hell out of you with those.
