Here are the “rest” of the pictures from Alex’s Recital. Thanks to Alex for giving me the opportunity to take these pictures!!
Creative name I know. Now that it is almost summer except lots of sky/cloud pictures from me. I am obsessed. I just need to start carrying my wider lens with me as well.
I want to thank all of you who actually keep up on this and keep looking at my pictures. You have no idea how much it means to me. I have been hearing lots of compliments from people about it lately, and it is so good to hear. I am so glad you all are enjoying them. If anyone would like prints be sure to let me know, and I would be more than happy to get you some!
Today is a day of a bunch of random thoughts. So, prepare yourself if you choose to read on.
I wish leaves could stay this bright green color year round. I love it more than I can explain.
I love when I take a ton of pictures for the day, and when going through to select one to edit, one just immediately jumps out at me and I get super excited about it.
Earlier today I was thinking about my photographs, and I started getting really frustrated. I was sick of taking pictures of normal, every day things. I wanted something exciting and beautiful and extraordinary. I was feeling totally uninspired and almost didn’t want to take a picture today. But then on the drive home from school the clouds were stunning, and i walked out in my front yard, and looked up, and saw this. And I was completely satisfied with taking pictures of “mundane” things, because, maybe it’s just me, but this isn’t so mundane. I think it is pretty darn incredible and beautiful. It is incredible how God (yes, I give all credit to him) gives me inspiration when I need it the most.
Sorry about the long “rant” of sorts, it needed to come out.
Oh, and this is late because my school was playing Avatar for free in the student center. I couldn’t pass that up.
So, I have to confess. This is from yesterday. I am physically, mentally, and emotionally drained right now and was stretching myself to even upload a picture today let alone take one. Plus I was working on this project every spare second I had since crit was tonight. SOOC except for a conversion from raw.
I walk through the same parking lot daily, and every day I have noticed the broken patches and thought how cool it could look. Today I finally decided to take the time and take a few. Not the most exciting or eye-catching photo, but I still kind of like it. Maybe because this is kind of how I am feeling at the moment. Or at least I am about to be feeling completely crushed like this.
I really think I like this one better than the one I chose for my 52 week picture, so I may replace it.
I really should be writing a lesson plan or doing one of the other millions of other assignments I have, but my mind is in a million other places and I just cannot focus on those things for the life of me.
Today was just an absolutely miserable day, for such a long list of reasons that I wont get into. This was the only bright spot of my day, I had made some sweet tea in between classes and had a glass full that wouldn’t fit in the pitcher, so I poured it in a glass and decided to throw ice in it since Elliot found my remote for me. I like a ton of them, so expect to see more.
