the cinemagraph

By now, you have probably seen these moving images posted online, but if not, allow me to introduce to you: the cinemagraph.  A concept that brings a captured moment to life with a little unexpected movement.

 Original creators of the cinemagraph, Jamie Beck (blogger & photographer of From Me to You) and Kevin Burg have taken the .gif format to new heights.  I cannot wait to begin experimenting with this artistic spin on the traditional photo.

With the days of summer fleeting and a cooler breeze in the air, I am looking forward to the slow transition into autumn.  Long walks during sunset with spiced lattes in hand always make the fall one of my favourite times of the year - not to mention the amazing fashion that the season brings!  

I have been fortunate to have the summer off spending leisurely days doing all of the things I've always wished I'd had the time for.  Late (and long) breakfasts, reading at the park, organizing, painting (and sketching) as well as some upcoming photography projects that are in the works.  
'A relaxed mind is a creative mind' as my Yogi Tea so simply put it yesterday.   So for now, it's back to blogging & enjoying the abundance of inspiration online and, of course, savouring the final weeks of summer.

xo love,
