Prairie Hike

I hadn’t been out to the Konza Prairie for ages, and when it warmed up last weekend I jumped at the chance to head out there for a hike with fellow photography graduate student, Myra. I also hadn’t been out there with my new lens, so I was excited to be able to get a new perspective on something I have shot multiple times before. Unfortunately when we got out there it got super windy and a cold front started moving in, but luckily we still had sunshine and decent light for most of the hike.

I am so excited to get a break from Manhattan and share lots of images and stories here when I get back. If you want to keep up with our adventures during the week be sure to follow me on instagram. I will be posting lots there throughout the week, but posts here on the blog will have to wait since I don’t have room to pack my computer. Have a wonderful week you lovely people!


192/365 – Grass Clippings

Today was such an excellent day. Elliot and I went to a jazz concert at a park here in Lexington, where we got rained on and got to watch absolutely incredible clouds blow over. We then headed to the arboretum to take pictures for my studio project (the self-portraits), and walked around for a little there, again watching some of the most amazing clouds I have seen (at least all this summer). I may upload some pictures of the sky later on, even though I also did that yesterday. They were just too good to pass up.
