Humidity + and Humidity -

lens.humidity
Humidity -
This heat and humidity makes my camera lens fog up! So if I need accurate shots I have to let my camera rest outside for about 3o minutes before I begin shooting. However, as shown above, taking a shot through the foggy lens can have a sort of beautiful result too, especially in early evening sunlight.

Humidity +
A most definite plus to the humidity is watching the golden headed boy turn into a curly headed cherub once we're outside for more than a minute or two. As if I needed another reason to dote. And I sweep him up and kiss the sweaty nape of his blonde curly neck. He must wonder why he gets kissed in the dreadful heat like this over and over again.

Sorry I slipped away without a "hey I'm slipping away" note. If I could add tags to my last week or two with a few keywords they would be the following:

New York, TopShop, Balthazar, Purl, Brooklyn, Pratt, Williamsburg, Knoxville, fireworks, honey whiskey, family, cousins, swimming, sunburns, fireworks, needlework, slip-n-slides, gin & tonic, lime, lemon, yum,

Be back next week! put your feet up! xo,Anna

  1. My lens fogged up last weekend when I went camping. And I couldn't figure out why, since it slept in my tent all night.

    Who knows!
    Lovely photos :)

  2. That foggy lens made for a really neat effect! Sometimes the unintended can be pleasantly surprising.

  5. A friend of mine just had some beach shots where her lens was all fogged up. I thought it might be sunscreen on the lens, but maybe it was the humidity here in NC! I got to love on my little 5 month old nephew this weekend... I loved kissing his little neck!

  11. You had me at honey whiskey. For so many reasons but primarily honey and whiskey. I wish I could get my lens to fog...it's so dry here, it just doesn't happen. Can I send you a picture of a chair that needs reupholstery? I want to use your fabric, just need some guidance.

  20. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm always a humidity+ person. I like my hair curlier, I love the foggy lens effect, and my thirsty dry skin turns dewy in the moist summer evening. Lovely post.
