33/365 – Stalker

I went on a super short hike today at Raven Run Nature Sanctuary. Raven Run Nature Sanctuary is a fairly large place, with no houses around for a while. I was walking pretty quick because the trails were closing in a half hour, but I looked to the side of the trail and saw this cat. It was so incredibly random! I squatted down, and the cat gradually and reluctantly made his way to me, and once he was all the way he started rubbing on my legs like no other cat has done before. He just kept going in circles around me. Eventually I stood up to take pictures, and every once in a while he would put his front paws all the way up on my thigh. He was extremely friendly, but any sudden movement and noise and he started to move away very quickly.

More pictures to come from my little hike later on.


Here are some more random pictures from my current 365 that I thought deserved sharing. I am also going to be making a separate post of just a few extra self-portraits, and a big post of pictures from the Red River Gorge within the next few days, so keep checking back!

My Recent Obsessions

For some reason I have been on a huge baking/cooking kick lately. Usually I just slap something together for meals, like a typical college student. But, for the past few weeks I have been cooking myself real, delicious meals. And I have been experimenting with my own recipes too. It has been an adventure, and I think it is turning into some sort of therapy for me.

This was a pizza I made for dinner the other night, and goodness it was delicious. One of the best pizzas I have had, if I may be so vain.

Last week I found a recipe online for cupcakes for two. I thought it would be perfect for me and my new obsession with baking. I tried them out tonight, and they were wonderful! It was the first time I had made cupcakes from scratch, and I played with the recipe a little to make them funfetti cupcakes instead of plain vanilla. The frosting is also made from scratch, but that is a given with me.

Besides my baking and cooking spree, I have had a little obsession with plants and growing things. Grass seed is what I had available, so I have 3 different containers growing grass at the moment. The tins, which have been up on my blog recently, and this glass, and a big pot of it. I have just been craving color in my life recently I guess.

365 “Outtakes” Round Three

I haven’t linked to this for a while, but become a fan on Facebook at Abigail Thompson Photography. And be sure to check out the Etsy shop I opened with my sister.

This is a long one, I really cranked out some pictures in the past few days.

Also, for some reason, all of a sudden my pictures are looking extremely dull when I upload them here or on flickr. I have no clue why, but it is frustrating me greatly and destroying the look of my pictures. I hope it is just my computer for some odd reason….

323/365 – Spoiled Rotten

This is what happens when a pear is so rotten that it fails to do anything exciting when shot with a bb gun, or when dropped.

I saw this pear in my mom’s fruit basket when I got home Wednesday, and it was already past ripe so I asked if I could shoot it with a bb gun in hopes of getting some cool high-speed photograph. We finally had time today, with my dad shooting, but instead of anything awesome happening, the bb just went in and got stuck. Nothing flew off, nothing exploded, or even moved. It was silly. So then we thought we could just drop it and maybe something cool would happen. But, it was just too rotten, and in stead of splattering, it just collapsed on itself and went splat into one pile.
