september was a balancing act— mostly of loneliness and belonging. i felt fall again for the first time in a year and it felt GOOD. everything seems better in a denim jacket. i tried to watch the sun go down more often, and it shows in these photos. there were bike rides and good shows, new friends and late nights, heavy conversations and piano serenades ’til 2am. september concluded with one of those really good nights where i slept in my jeans because i didn’t want it to end, soundtracked by pale waves and the cardigans.

these photos were taken on a lomography fish eye camera (pictured at the bottom), gifted to me by my friend elle for my birthday. it looks like a happy meal toy and apparently takes pretty grainy photos, but the way they turned out feels right— here’s to the beginnings of autumn magic.
