Today’s Bits Of My Weekend guest blogger is Anabela of Fieldguided, and is also the original genius behind dreamcats. She lives in Toronto with her fiance and sweet kitty, and takes the dreamiest photos around. I love her for the honesty and amazing curation she brings to the table on her blog. Thanks for sharing with us, Anabela!
I took these pictures with my Canon A-1 because Kate has one and I like that we both have one.
This weekend involved roses blooming all over the city, good mail (a copy of Sonja Ahlers’s The Selves), daydreaming about dresses made from Japanese sewing books, fish and chips eaten in the park. I visited my parents, I made a record number of Liberty fabric neckties for a special upcoming wedding, I wandered into the same clothing stores and coffee shops and galleries that I always wander into. I multitasked, I wore a pair of sandals that I got with store credit, I watched Wet Hot American Summer for the first time. We rode our bikes in the rain and sniffed the air as we rode past the Cadbury’s chocolate factory. We met friends at a former Portuguese seafood restaurant that is still called the Atlantic and drank an enormous beer made by a brewery near the Quebec border. I took portraits of my cat, Oreo, because Bits of My Weekend absolutely needs portraits of black and white cats. Geoff and I drove to his parents’ house (which felt a little like being in the country), and since he has his learner’s permit again I let him drive up to the highway. I took cautious steps away from using the camera on full auto and changed the aperture manually. It was a completely ordinary weekend in every way.
