Day XXX of 100 Days of Photography

September 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Alright. I am SO bad at keeping up with blog posts that I have no idea where I am at...but I am pretty sure I've completed my 100 days.  I've been doing a lot of film lately, so being able to post must wait until the film sees development.  In the meantime, here are some digital photos of recent adventures!

Where to begin?  I suppose with the obvious: Vincent and I have been together for one year! Hurrah!  This is a particularly magnanimous occasion because I am polyamorous and dating in open relationships fucking sucks as much as dating in monogamy. 

Except when it works. 

(^^^Winning^^^)

  Vincent and his wife Rose have been long time friends of mine and my husband's.  They've been open relationship-ing for longer than most everyone we know.  Between being friends and sharing the open relationship struggle, we've all leaned on each other in one form or another for a long time.  Vin and Rose even dropped me off on one of my very first dates as a poly-lady.  Vin and I didn't start seeing each other right away, but life led us to each other a year ago.  Vin and I saw an opportunity in each other to grow so we grasped hands and ran.  We ran so far away.  We ran all night and all day.

(Okay, I'll stop. But seriously. I've run so much this year with him as part of an exercise regime.)

Vin really wanted to meet my family, and Joe and I really wanted to go home.  Rose was intent on SLC Comi-Con, so Joe, Vin, and I traveled to Idaho as a triad.  I introduced Vin to my immediate family and to my in-laws.  It went, in a single word, beautifully.  Mine and Joe's family is one of pure love.  We were nervous as hell considering the irregularity of our situation; however, Vin's and Dad's mutual POG obsession united them in geekery, and Vin's ongoing romance with my dog Eva endeared him to my in laws.  It was a short, treasured trip. 

After Vin and I returned Joe safely back to Utah, Vin and I embarked on our vacation to southern Idaho.  We stopped frequently along the way and camped out at the Spiral Jetty.  I don't know if there is a more lovely, introspective, quite place on this Earth.  When night hits the Jetty, it becomes awash in pinks, oranges, and cotton-candy blues that are just breathtaking when they fade into the deep purples of night. 

Vin and I cuddled until the moon sank into the lake and the Milky Way undulated above us.

After our magical night, we drove to Boise and Nampa so I could show my artwork and make a door for a fundraiser.  The funds raised will go towards Habitat for Humanity.  We ate at my favorite sushi bar, drank delicious beers, and we swam in the pool.

(^^^week-long mood^^^)

Vin took most of the digital shots.  He's quite the shutterbug.  Most of my photos are still being processed because they are film, but I wanted to post some of his images.  He's a really talented photographer.

We finished the week with a massage at the Kuradoor in Utah, and then decided we needed to celebrate more later in the week.  When the official day of our first date came, we got dressed up and did a 50's pin up shoot at home and at the state fair.  Again, I really want to show you these photos but they are still at the developer.  I did take a couple of photos with a digital implement. 

This one, I'll leave you with. 

(You're welcome.)
