My Analog Obsession - Kids, Popsicles, and Deadly Pits {a post from Nathan}


A little while ago I got together with a good friend to just eat lunch and let our kids play at the park. We ended up meeting at this really cool park in Palo Alto that had a great section for climbing, a water play area, and some super cool sand pits. As I've been really trying to learn my exposures for shooting film, of course I brought along my camera to take some pics. Adam, my friend Robin's son, was such a fun little guy to watch. He, Luci, and Bella all got along great and ran around for close to 2 hours while Robin and I chatted about business and life. What I thought was really funny was Bella and Adam holding hands. Maybe they already know something in don't!! Of course, as her father, I naturally stayed calm with the thought of my little girl falling in love. ha ha

All in all, it was a great day. We had ice cream, fruit and veggies, and just great conversation. As it warms up again, you can bet your britches I'll be hanging at this park again.
