Piragi Afternoon

There’s nothing quite as perfect as spending the afternoon Christmas baking and drinking wine with a friend. Or that might be the case if I wasn’t cursed, and could actually bake! Once a year I like to try to beat the curse, and make Piragi, which is basically Latvia’s greatest contribution to the world. For the last few years, they’ve been turning out acceptable, but this year, the baking gods just wouldn’t have it :(

The yeast was totally dead. I didn’t even know yeast can die! it didn’t rise AT ALL! Now I’m totally ashamed that I’m going to be serving these rock hard buns for Christmas. But considering how hard they turned out, we sure did eat a lot of them after… so maybe they’re not THAT bad ;)

Lani Barbitta - Carli – these are great, as always. I really love how you tell stories through your photo compilations! Happy Holidays and an even Happier New Year!

Eva - Believe it or not, this is the first time i’m seeing those! ;-)
Great job, as always…can’t believe it is exactly a year already…!!! Love

Canada Part III | Vancouver

I know, I know… these are *so* last season. It’s ok… I don’t really believe in seasons. So this is finally the end of the Canada trip photos. My fave from this set – the early ’90s (or late ’80s?) station wagon, complete with wood paneling we were fortunate enough to find in Stanley Park. The Teteri used to roll in one of those babies back in the day. Hot stuff.

What’s up next? Maybe a few shots from a friend’s wedding in Jakarta I went to a couple weeks ago, or maybe I’ll pull out some stuff from the archives that I’ve been meaning to post in a full set.

Magalie - Just wonderful! You make my (ex) city look soooo good! :)

Janet - These Photos are great! Thanks for all the photos of Claire and I! They are wonderful!

Eric - Very nice series my favourite is the last one.

Canada part II | Tyax Resort

Tyax is the anti-Singapore. If there was an exact opposite of the city-state, it would most definitely be Tyax lodge. At one point we drove for 6 hours and only saw four other people… and three moose. Was a great weekend chilling in log cabins with the extended Pitt Meadows family, drinking wine, driving up the mountain to see what kind of trouble we could get into…. and drinking more wine.

By “log cabin” kind of mean “log mansion.” Even though it’s in the middle of nowhere, Tyax isn’t very rustic.

Carmen Augustine - Carli! This is so lovely! You really do have a talent. Thanks for capturing our time together and sharing it with us all.

Jaclyn MacKinnon - Hey, that was awesome! Looks like it hasn’t changed much up there.
Everyone’s just a bit older and there’s a lot more wine than there was when I used to go. Who put the suburban in the ditch?

Carlina - @Jaclyn…. the suburban was Sonja’s work ;)

Robert Morton - Wow those are really really beautiful photos, and not only are the photos perfect but you have captured so many of the exact moments of the AUGUSTINE TIAX TRIP. Really really well done!!!!!

Vee - Amazing photos, Carli! I’m a fan! :)

Cheryl - All of these photos are gorgeous! I especially love the one of Yvonne and I air kissing- sooo cute!!

Sonja - Love your website, can’t wait to see you in the summer!

Canada part I | Cranbrook

Most of the time I travel I come back with a nice tan (and by that, I mean completely sunburned, of course); this trip I came back with a suitcase full of sweaters and a wine hangover so bad that I’m just managing to get rid of it now, a month later.  Since this little trip was sort of in three, very rushed, parts, I’ll post each part separately.  If not, I won’t be posting anything until the new years when I expect to finish working on all the photos.  Part I is from my parent’s place, which is pretty much 6 hours from anywhere. They have chickens there.  and lots and lots of trees…. hence this post pretty consisting of almost exclusively chickens and trees.

A Parisian woman lost in KL aka V - Hi dear Carlina,

Your latest images are so full of love and emotions… really beautiful. I love them all//;-)

See ya

Jenna - OMG it’s beautiful! No wonder you became a tree-hugger :D

khengsiong - Canada is… such a beautiful place! (But it’s too cold in winter.)

Carlina - Thanks all~

Jenna! I don’t hug treeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees! I kick them! ….yeah! and punch them!

Janet - So nice to see the family! Some things never change, Peter still chasing Chickens and Kittens!

Sha And Ambra Wedding Reception

I’m a terrible blogger.  I just don’t think I’ve got it in me.  Luckily I’m persistent and crazy stubborn.  I made a blog, and I’m not quitting yet. oh no.  Anyways, it’s not that I’ve forgotten about this blog or anything, I’ve just been super duper busy, because I’ve been fortunate enough to cross paths with a whole lot of friends in the past few weeks…. so making new posts has been sidetracked.  Finally have this wedding set finished and ready to go.

Unfortunately, as much as I love the prophoto blog system, I’m doing something very wrong, and can’t figure out how to make the photos come out right on them.  I thought I had figured it all out, but still having some issues.  One of these days I’ll figure out how to make them come out right.

cliff - Solid coverage Carli. I especially like your wide angle and detail work on this set.

Vieng Sayavongsa - Now I see what was taking you guys so long!! My goodness we were starving to death. You look absoultely gorgeous. I have never seen a more beautiful bride. I wish you both a happy, healthy, prosperous life together.

Doris Lam - Ambra, Congratulations!!! You are so beautiful! Wishing you and your husband happily ever after.
