adam and i fairly recoiled in horror at edmund as he seemed to have already made up his mind about giving his own siblings over to the queen of narnia for turkish delight

Having progressed through the first few chapters of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with Adam this week, I thought an icy scene from Narnia (that is, the Cascade foothills) would set a proper tone for this evening. This was a 25 second exposure with a six stop neutral density filter covering the lens. I have a handful of other shots that are better compositionally but I went with this one for the moment since it required the least amount of cloning out of dust spots, haha! On the other hand, I ordinarily prefer the diffuse, cloudy quality of the extra-long, long exposure……

The boys and I have been basically on our own this week since Sunday. Oliver and I’ve been hitting the books hard. He has turned a major corner- he’s officially a junior bibliophile! All he wants to do these days is read, read, read.

When I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as a boy, not knowing better at the time I imagined Turkish Delight as akin to the little foil-wrapped Brach Royals (they’re caramel soft candies). I haven’t had Royals probably since I was a boy…….
