Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
   Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
   Tomorrow will be dying.
The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
   The higher he’s a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
   And nearer he’s to setting.
That age is best which is the first,
   When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
   Times still succeed the former.
Then be not coy, but use your time,
   And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
   You may forever tarry.

A few more recent photos I've been spending time with in the dark room. 

I will begin working on my final photo project this weekend and will be exploring a few different themes: minimalism, pattern, reflections and shadows. I'm excited to see what happens!

PS. I've been thoughtfully curating some of my iPhone photos here: http://alysonsharon.vsco.co/ 
I really like the collection so far.

I have been really enjoying my photography class. Working in the dark room can be tedious, but it is so gratifying to develop and process all of my own photos. Seeing my classmates' work and receiving their input has also been a pretty cool experience.

I will post more of the photos I've been taking soon!

Kai, Asher and I still go on imaginary trips to Hawaii, continue to play in tents in the back-yard, and will forever be "goofy grapes" completely. Kai will be five years old soon, and Asher three... How?!

In the last frame, Kai wondered, "There are hearts around us – how does the computer know we love each other?"

Always the sweetest words from this boy.

Some things never change.
