a quiet beach house

Film. Kodak Ektar 100.

I received my film back from the photo lab of our weekend in Santa Rosa Beach.  Even though we missed the bright sun and warm weather, there is a solemn comfort I find in these images – the grey clouds, the darkness, the wrinkled sheets.

I have a few more images from the beach and our rental that I’ll share with you this week.

    I especially love the beach when it’s cloudy, there is an intense mild warmth in these shots.ReplyCancel

    I love the simplicity and clutter-free-ness of a beach house that you only visit now and then. Whenever I come home, I always try to replicate that peaceful feeling in my own house- to no avail! I think it comes down to paring down…and being happy with less stuff and more moments of zen..ReplyCancel
