During my down time in the off-season, I have become somewhat intrigued by the art of shooting video. My first attempt at shooting and throwing together a short video was back in the beginning of March when Ben and I enjoyed brunch in the city (here). Since then, I’m trying to find even the smallest reason to take video. I feel like even the shortest video can say so much, thus, my videos below. After shooting a video with my sister (here), Ben commented on the style of shooting and said it’s very similar to Jake Davis’s Test Shots. I was somewhat flattered, although, knowing my amateur style is far, far from Jake’s. But, as for now, I’ll simply enjoy the process of learning. Here’s a small glimpse of Ben and myself:
Aside from photography, it has become the time of year to hibernate our winter clothing till next season. But as is always the case, living here on the east coast, that Mother Nature plays Indian-giver: Tuesday…70 degrees…Wednesday…85 degrees…Thursday…45 degrees. It’s unfortunate that we have to live in this uncertain state of being for a month or so, but until 90 degrees hits for three months, we will gladly take the mild weather that plays peek-a-boo. Lucky for us though, the weather has given us a few charming weekend days and we have taken full advantage. A few weekends ago, Ben and I walked the dogs, took a few bike rides, ate outside at a couple local restaurants and lounged on a blanket at Pier A Park along the Hudson River. As I lay there watching fellow ‘parkers’ play catch, read their books, and reviewing our perfect weekend in my head, I realized that wedding season is just around the corner and I better soak up every ounce of this as I can.
And lastly, I must confess, this past year I have been lacking in the “good wife who cooks for her husband every night” department. When I first moved up to Hoboken, I was unemployed and had many hours to myself while Ben was at work. Aside from taking care of a puppy, I truly enjoyed spending my time cooking and baking. And that’s how I started my blog. I’ve missed those days, so I decided to take some shots of a quick and easy dessert I threw together from our Powerfoods cookbook. It’s a lemon filled cream treat…and for those of you who are health conscious, it is just that. Just tofu, honey and lemon!
Have a great Wednesday!
