california dreamin'



good waves,
warm sun,
family,
it's the weekend.
yay.
oh there was also puppy class and lemon asparagus risotto i made, flower pressing, movies and beach runs, but i didn't get any photos of those things, sometimes you just gotta put the camera down :)

i hope yours was all the things you dream of too...

  1. Looks like you had a great weekend. The beach sounds great ... I would kill to be on the beach right now. And I agree - sometimes you have to get busy living instead of capturing it.

  5. OH. MY. GOD! you took these photos, lori?! there are not enough adjectives to tell you how impressed and excited i am to look at them. how could you capture the waves and movement like that? how did that bird agree to cooperate with you?

    you are my favorite photographer bar no one.

    lemon risotto? may i have the recipe?

    the comment you left on my blog: let's not start talkin' 'bout me unless we're including you too. one of my claims to fame, i think, is that i am blessed to recognize and love good wonderful interesting kind sweet terrific people. now don't you think you fit into that group totally nicely?

    your weekend makes me so so happy for you. yipee!

    love

  6. ah thanks kj, your words really mean so much to me. i love to take photos and share them here, hoping to share a little of the beauty i see.

    the risotto is from the art of simple food by alice waters. maybe you already have this great cookbook. if not i'll copy the recipe and send it to you! ♥

  7. I agree. Sometimes things are best to enjoy without the worry of capturing it. It's more relaxing that way.

    Now Lori you are so lovely for leaving comments and I'm rudely so ridiculously busy that I've not found time to respond.

    Yes that is a toilet in the little 'hello I'll fall over on you any time' falling over shack out the back.

    The mind boggles.

  16. 3yearshousewife,
    it is hard for us though, my husband is a professional photographer so the camera almost never stays home! i try....

    janelle, the spotty dog was faithfully waiting for his surfing owner. we watched him as the tide rose and he was getting washed off the rocks, but he didn't want to move!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    rosaria, thank you!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    natsy,

  18. Kawabunga, dude! Great photos. Love that last one, especially. You got some nice critters there on the beach, two and four legged alike.

    Aaah, sounds like a perfect, relaxing weekend. When I press my ear to my screen, I can actually hear the beach.

    Mwah!

  21. Hello dear Lori Ann,

    Love the photos, but they make me want to forsake my work and head to the beach.

    Leaving for Oregon tomorrow, but I'll keep track of you while I'm traveling.

    Love to you,

  24. hi delwyn,

    thank you so much! i like that photo too, i was only sitting for that shot. i think i was on a lower rock though. it was taken with a 300mm lens with a doubler. i have to use a longer lens for surf photos.

  27. Lori, hi

    I just drove through SB the other day, all the way to Laguna Beach where I had a book event. Life is so beautiful down that way and you've captured it here in your photos and what you do. Missing that sunshine and water already (took a swim at 6am one day). Many blessings to you and yours. Romney
