This photo series explores the quiet weekend hours that break up one workweek from another. I got to hang out with Shelby at her beautiful place as she walked me through some of her weekend rituals. Out of everyone I know, Shelby is one of the most calming personalities. Even when her mind is a buzz with ideas, she is able to maintain an equilibrium; I admire these personality traits beyond words.
Early Saturday day mornings are so special to me. During those quiet hours you get to see what your apartment looks like with sunlight. Most weekday mornings, people pet their cats and run out of their houses while it’s still dark. It’s easy to forget the comfortable corners of our respective dwellings. Saturday mornings remind us that these nooks make our places our homes.
I spend most of my Sunday mornings in my kitchen. I make the perfect breakfast and plate it like I am about to serve it at a restaurant. Over the years, I have learned to allow small breaks in my weeks. These pauses let me come up with new ideas and give me a chance to work on projects that didn’t get enough attention throughout the week. Some of my best thinking happens on Sunday mornings.
