Drama In The Sky

I thought it might be good to post something other than graduate work (something a bit more simple), so I went digging into my folders for things I had meant to share but never got around to. A few weeks ago (I guess it was back in August, so a bit more than a few weeks ago; yikes time has flown by) we had some scattered storms roll through Manhattan. I sat and watched this one move for a while, enamored by the dramatic clouds and the clear distinction of where the rain was.

187/366 – Hot Air

*Wednesday, July 11
Yesterday I worked a long day, and it was Chris’s last day. Needless to say I was not wanting to take a picture, and had no clue what to shoot. Until this hot air balloon almost took off our chimney. My polaroid was the closest camera to me, so I grabbed it and managed to get this one shot before it was down the street.

122/366 – Road Trip #2

*Monday, May 7
On Monday, Chris and I woke up extremely early and drove first to Missouri to see his grandparents, and then to Kansas to visit my new school and look for apartments. It was a 15 hour trip, so once again all I managed was a shot from my phone as we drove. This one was right before we got in to Manhattan, Kansas. Needless to say it made me even more excited to move there.

79/366 – Magnolia

Well, I’m back. Finally. I was destroyed by the flu for a week, and couldn’t even think about eating let alone my 366.

I’m not going to bother making up for those pictures, I’m just going to start where I left off and try to pretend like last week didn’t happen. It may be a rough start back though because I still have a ways to go in terms of getting over this.

Anyways, spring is here. It has been so warm out (up until recently I guess) that everything is blooming and green. This magnolia tree is one of my favorite parts of spring at home in MN. I can’t get over how beautiful it is, or how wonderful it smells. It is covered in blooms right now and the sun was stunning on the blossoms so I figured it would make a good image for my return.
