Stop and smell the roses

Some nights you plan to make an instructional video on how to disassemble and service vintage Lewmar Spring Jaw Self-Tailing Winches, but some nights you just have to stop and smell the roses.

And stare at the sky, watching the planes go by.

And then eat cookies while you watch a bunch of episodes of Mad Men Season 7 on Netflix.

But tonight it’s back to work … probably.

Congratulations to John and Megan

It takes a lot to get Mary and myself off the water, but we had some very important duties this weekend. Mary was serving as the matron of honor in her best friend’s wedding, and I was lending my photography skills to the event. This is a sailing and adventure blog, not a wedding blog, so I’ll keep it short, but I will say, “Congratulations John and Megan. I hope you guys have many happy years together!”

Finally developed that last roll of film

From time to time I still carry around a 35mm film camera. In this case it was a Leica M4-2 with a 35mm Summilux and a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400.

It takes me a long time to finish an entire roll of film, so when I finally develop the negatives, it’s like opening a time capsule.

Here’s some scenes with friends (and dogs) on film from the past few months on boats and around the marina.

Time to load a new roll …
