From a recent family session in Marin, beating the heat with a trip to a creek.

Shot with Fuji Xpro-1 and the dreamy 56mm f1.2 APD

Monarch_0146 Monarch_0147 Monarch_0148 Monarch_0149Milkweed scatters its seeds across my neighborhood; true to the survivor nature of this weed, the plant sprouts in unlikely places.

Cracks in the driveway, on the hell-strip, in overgrown untended areas, as well as in my neighbors orderly garden.

The plant attracts several kinds of aphids and accompanying ladybugs drawn to the feast. And of course, the Monarch butterfly chooses to lay eggs on it as well.

We were fortunate to watch this butterfly emerge last month, a reminder that we all have seasons to grow, seasons to hide inside a cocoon, and seasons to fly.

I’ve been shooting quite a lot more with my Fuji during weddings, especially the details and ‘preparation’ images, the camera is so much less intrusive and I feel lighter without the weight of the DSLR kit hanging off me. This was shot on the coast, near Mendocino with the X-pro1 and 18-55 zoom.
