'he took me on a walk around lake cuyamaca in julian, ca.'





these beautiful photographs showed up on my doorstep (along with blood oranges, my new absolute favorite!) from my dearest friend joel. yes, my once upon a time and still friendly ex.

ages ago one of the first gifts he gave me was the first photograph, his titled "morning fog" in a matte frame.

and it has always been my favorite.



P.S... see joel's comment below on how to get one of his photo beauties for free {yup, free! and they're so much prettier in person} thank-you jolie!!! x

Dude has a Firefly quote on his blogger profile. He is obviously a winner!

EXCITING! These are so beautiful and I emailed him right away, since I am smitten with print 9/13 from the Balboa Park series.

I love that you still have such a sweet relationship with Joel, given how tumultuous ex-relationships can be. Lord knows I have a'plenty.

Miss you lots.
