personal mission

a few weeks ago, before going on a photo walk I asked my Facebook friends if they wanted me to take a picture of something in particular. this simple question stirred such unexpected enthusiasm that early the next morning I walked giddily through snow piled streets on a personal mission to fulfill every request.

so here's for them.

Wow. Amazing. See now that's the tough thing I can't even figure out how to make my photos look like that. I love the dreamy peaceful calm to all your photos. So inspiring.

Irene, this is so beautiful! I've been enjoying all the gorgeous images on your blog. Hope you don't mind, I cross-posted your video on my photo blog, here: http://theboldsoul2011.tumblr.com/ because it was just too good not to share! Hope everyone's doing well at your place and hope to see you soon... tea at Aimee's maybe?
