In Film

After homeschooling all of my children for the last 22 years, I graduated my youngest this last Sunday. Today is my first official day of retirement.

Before I go forward and start my encore, I am going to spend some time this summer reflecting on my last 22 years. I am going to slow down and just be.

Of course, part of that slowing down will involve shooting some film and going on quiet adventures with my cameras. One of my favorite places to walk around with my cameras is the Huntington Gardens. It is a beautiful botanical garden near our home and perfect for quiet time alone with my camera and reflecting on the years that have past.

Do you have a go-to spot that you love to go with your camera? Is there a part of town that draws you to it again and again?

  1. So, so lovely. Reminds me of the botanical gardens and the Japanese Tea Garden here in SF – we go frequently! And? Well done, mama teacher. That is an incredible achievement. x

  2. So thrilled for you on this next chapter! these are lovely. I do love to wander around Point Defiance Park here in Tacoma. I need to get out there soon.

  3. I love to go to downtown San Jose and SF but it seems hard because my kids are still young… Green with envy šŸ™‚
