These are from July- so sue me. I'm really missing desert scenery and wide open spaces- I'm not a city girl so I guess I always will. Don't get me wrong, Tokyo is great, and probably the best city I've been to. But I really miss being able to camp and hike within 20 minutes of where I live and being able to take short trips out to the middle of nowhere. And those desert colours in southern utah. They will always have my heart. Some of these are from my olympus slr and some of these are from a disposable camera I found at Ruby's Lodge gift shop. I really love the way film renders the blue sky against the red, orange, and pink rock.

Moving and settling in has been overwhelming, time consuming, and a bit stressful, and we still don't have any furniture in two of our rooms, but we have had the chance to have some fun wanderings around while waiting for mail or looking for housewares/ places to eat. Here's a few snippets of what we've been up to around Tokyo (already shared on instagram) but I haven't really had the time to take the big camera around for new blog material this month.

lunar

9821_0035_34A

I meant to share this image sooner, when I was still in Utah but time got away from me. It's still timely enough though, since we had the super harvest moon combo this week, and moon appreciation is being celebrated all month here in Japan. I'm eating up the festive themed-ness of it all.

There is this rad space mural by parents' house that I've been meaning to do a photo with for a while. I just happened to already have this space-agey tacky-tastic sequin dress, and the match was made. What I really wanted was a photo of me jump-floating with the moon in front of my face, but the photo wasn't taken at the right moment and it was the end of the film roll....maybe a good reason to stick with digital sometimes for iffier projects. At least I got one useable photo!

Anyway, here's to enjoying the moon.
