Happy birthday to me!

Personal

BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Mine, to be precise. It’s 11am and I’m parched and dehydrated from my party last night. Don’t confuse this for the post-party hangovers of my 20s that resulted from plenty of booze and uncomfortable shoes. This feeling is the result of an overabundance of salt from my CHEESE PARTY. Oh yes.

I am beyond proud of my friends who contributed about 18 different kinds of delicious lactose products. Here are some of the winners: a bright green pesto gouda, cinnamon asiago, mango stilton, a Dutch gouda that was special ordered by my friend Neil across the pond, a mustard seed cheddar called Red Dragon, bucheron, cracked pepper Polly-O string cheese, gruyere, a robiola that had divided appreciation, Armenian mozzarella string cheese, and so so sooooo many more. It was a dairy lover’s dream. There was also a crazy assortment of accoutrements: homemade orange honey, apples, dried figs, walnuts, crackers out the wazoo, 85% dark chocolate, raspberries, jams, breads, and fruits.

My fridge is now fully stocked for a month of grilled cheeses, omelets, quiches, and whatever else I can mix together with my fromage.

And because I have the Oh, snap! Photo Studio at my disposal, I can show you some of what went down!

Sorry I won't be around for the next two weeks. I am going to Scotland on October 20th, returning to San Francisco on October 29th and flying out to Connecticut a few hours later to shoot a wedding on Halloween.Unfortunately, my trip to Scotland is not one for fun or weddings, but to see my grandmother who has been struggling with dementia for the past few years and now looks to have lung cancer. She is actually my namesake as her maiden name is Lindsay. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of my family since my grandmother had 12 children and I have lost count of the cousins I have all over the world.Hopefully I'll be back with a few pictu ...

I had a fantastic birthday this year. Brunch, a trip to the flower show, a delicious dinner, a bright green rain jacket, and cameras. Lots of awesome vintage cameras. They are long past their prime functionally but they’re ideal for me. I love the dusty pieces, the heavy hinges, and the thought that they could have captured just about anything. Maybe one of them belonged to a wedding photographer. Or perhaps a wartime photojournalist. Or more likely, a mother or father who wanted pictures of the family. And I love that. History passed through these lenses and now might reside in leather bound albums or pewter picture frames. I think ...
