trip pictures

i can't figure out how to wrap the text properly, and i'm not going to do the whole irritating trial and error thing i always do. so here are the captions:

1. obligatory. the one of warren came out better than the one of me.
2. an ancient city wall near our hotel
3. me enjoying my map in the palais royal
4. montmartre subway. metro. whatever. after this picture we had to climb like a thousand steps.
5. warren and i were thrilled by the french's enthusiasm for mary magdalene, our favorite disciple.

6. those are little vineyards in the distance.

9. this is the only picture from amsterdam in which i don't look, well, high.
10. the following sunday was to be queen's day, which is like the dutch mardi gras, so there was a carnival and much excitement around town. i'm pretty sure i'm glad i missed it.
11. this was the most beautiful merry-go-round i've ever seen.

12. warren in what i insisted was "vermeer's light", even though delft, i was informed, is a whole nother town.
13. from inside a coffee shop

thanks! my dad loaned me his camera. i think i'm being so good for not running out and buying one for myself until i get my tax return.

This might be the dumbest question ever but is it digital or film? Peter has gotten interested in film all of a sudden...

it's not dumb! it's actually digital. i prefer film, but it's so handy to be able to put the pictures on the internets right away, and plus you can take a lot of picures and then erase the ones that arent awesome. but light does something to film that so far digital cannot successfully imitate.

I love these Tia - especially the ones of you out in the field.

What a charming photo of you w/La Madeleine! I love that statue of her... part of my most favorite type of religious art.

You rock.
