Summer school

So we haven't been completely useless this summer - Matt has been taking art classes. Painting, specifically, and he has really enjoyed it! He has always loved art, and earlier this year he read this essay by Winston Churchill that inspired him. With his job being so analytical, he likes to have a creative outlet (this is also the reason he loves cooking)!

He was painting the picture I took at Kohler a few months ago

And I have been taking photography classes! And I LOVE it! Sorry for the onslaught of pictures of Will - I pretty much grab him every free second I get so that I can practice, and I can't narrow down what to post on here! I'm lucky to have such a cute subject!

I was specifically trying to achieve "bokeh" - a term for the blurry circular lights behind him:

Coco will pose for me too!

Tonight we walked to the marsh so I could practice backlighting
