Adventures Once Had

a log of cinemagraphs, photos, thoughts and gifs by Sandy Noto

A few weeks back, Eli and I went to photograph and create some cinemagraphs of David, who runs the blog Moto-Mucci. We had a great time but also discovered that we know laughably little about motorcycles. Our photo directions went something along the lines of, “so can you vrrooooom over there and vroooom back?”

Eli and I are heading off to Toronto, which is very exciting! One, we’ve been married for a year! Two, we have a funny love of Canada (I’m pretty sure that given the opportunity, Eli would move to Montreal next week). Three, I’m looking forward to making many Drake references (since he’s from Toronto). Also, I just got a new camera so I’m excited to exploring the city with it!

Anyway, this week, I’ve been:

Weekly Diversions, vol. 6

Regret is so deeply personal and complicated that it’s impossible to talk about in a superficial way. I’m thrilled that Eli is finally beginning to share bits of the project and extending the conversation.

Anyway, this week I’m:

On Saturday, Eli and I went to The Great Chicago Fire Festival. 

The event was supposed to commemorate the 1871 Chicago fire but the modern huts were built a little too well and the fire never took off. 

Chicago, it turns out, is full of pyromaniacs (or fire enthusiasts) that shouted “burn it down” until they started to leave, disappointed.

For a good chunk of this week, I was irrationally grumpy. It happens.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Eli suggested I write some thank you notes to focus on the good things in life but I wasn’t having it and instead made this sassy gif. My funk passed and I’m back to be being a sane and appreciative human being. This week:
