Today was absolutely awful. So here is an awful picture to go along with it.

Last night I shot two events for the magazine that I shot for during the summer. It was a bit crazy doing two in one night, but for the most part went smoothly. When I got done with all that though I was pretty tired and feeling too lazy for a picture, and Elliot said I should take a picture of fire. So I had him light a match, and I flipped my lens around, and this is what I ended up with. I didn’t have my card reader with me so I had to wait until today to get it uploaded.

I was at Target in the cleaning aisle the other day and caught these gel beads out of the corner of my eye. They are an air freshener thing. They come in a tub, and you take the cover off and as the fragrance is used up the gel beads shrink. As soon as I saw them I immediately got some photo ideas in my head. Plus, as Whitney and I found out, they feel so cool. We were playing with them for a bit before taking a picture, haha. I had a tough time deciding which one, so I may upload a few others later on.
And, I am taking title recommendations, because I couldn’t think of a good one.

Last night I took pictures of a classmate for a project of hers. I had the studio checked out until midnight, so Elliot met me there are we messed around with the lights for a bit. It was so so much fun! I had forgotten how much I missed the studio, and missed watching Elliot go crazy, haha. So many laughs and so many cool pictures. More to come most likely, but this was for sure one of my favorites. But, we didn’t get done until after 11:00 and then hadn’t had dinner yet, which took until well after midnight, so needless to say I was too tired to edit/post last night.
Elliot is looking for a coffee table, and so yesterday we were driving around to places like Goodwill and other second-hand stores. We thought we were done for the evening and were headed home, when we passed the Peddler’s Mall/Flea Market. I made a comment about how I wanted to stop in there sometime and see what they had, and he wondered if they would have coffee tables, so we turned around and headed on in. It was an experience to say the least. There were all of the booths, hundreds and hundreds of them (the place seemed to go on forever), filled with the most random things you could think of. Everything from floor mats for your car, to hot wheels cars, to old bottles and signs. I can’t even begin to describe how random it was. We were walking around, just glancing in each booth, and my eyes locked on this. It was still in the original box (which is very worn, but still cool), and came with the flash and an extra bulb. I will have to post a picture of that soon because it is awesome. I immediately fell in love with it and knew I had to get it. I have been wanting a retro camera for such a long time, and you can probably imagine my surprise to find it amongst all of that crap in there. Anyways, without further ado, say hello to my little friend (sorry, I had to).
(Oh, and this is not the shot that I had wanted to do with this little guy at all, but today was a rough day, filled with coughing uncontrollably and being homesick)
Real creative title, I know.
We had some crazy weather today. It was warm right away in the morning, and super super windy. Then all of a sudden we were in tornado watches and warnings. Every radio station was being interrupted every few minutes for the emergency broadcast or whatever. It poured, that is for sure, and the wind kept right up the entire time, but nothing as bad as I was hoping for (I love storms so so much!). It was a bit of a let down really, haha. But, we did get lots of rain which we desperately needed. And I did get this picture, which I like. And I did get a video that I kind of like and may upload tomorrow.
Oh, and to ease the worry of anyone out there (aka my parents), Elliot was driving his truck when I took this.
Yes I am aware that almost all of my titles lately have “fall” in them, but hey, it is fall and I love fall.
It finally rained today, which we needed desperately. So of course after teaching I went outside with my camera and took some reverse lens shots of the drops on the leaves.
