The compensation of growing [older is] that the passions remain as strong as ever, 
but one has gained — at last! — the power which adds the supreme flavour to existence, 
— the power of taking hold of experience, of turning it around, slowly, in the light. - Virginia Woolf


As part of our summer vacation, my family spent a week with our friends in a beautiful stone house in a rural part of Catalonia, Spain. It was a 25-minute drive to the nearest town, and getting to and from the location required driving long stretches of winding narrow roads and steep hills, but the moment one arrives and settles into this sanctuary at Pinell de Solsonès, every concern falls away...

    1. Thank you so much Isabel! La Rentrée always comes sooner than expected (and desired), but fortunately all went well. Both boys are settling into their new schools... and we're all slowly getting back into the rhythm of the new school year. Hope you are too :)

  2. Oh Catherine. Your photos (and life!) takes me breath away... I hope to go on a photography adventure with you someday, even if it's to stroll a street together or people watch over a cup of coffee. Much love, friend!

  3. The light in Catalonia and the stone house along with your eye for composition made some intriguing photos, Catherine. I love the light shining through the straw hat at the steps and the filtered light through the leaves. I imagine the boys are back to school. I hope they have a good year!
