two of my favorite things

I'm pretty sure I have posted once before that two of my favorite things are flowers and ironwork. Well, recently I visited my Alma Mater and shot a few photographs. Way back when, when I went on my first campus tour it was love at first sight. I'll probably share more photographs later on, but I was using my sister's fancy camera, so I played with focusing and this is what I came up with. I wish the rose garden was in better bloom, but I think blooming season for roses is much earlier down here. This place is highly photographed though, so these are probably nothing special, its all just a lesson for me!

soooo tired....

Just got in from Relay for Life. It was a fun night, I didn't even take a nap! I didn't take too many pictures either, but a team next to us had this adorable wagon so I had to ask if I could shoot it. I totally want to have one of these when I grow up and carry garden supplies around in it. I'm not grown up yet, am I, right? Anyway, here it is on the turf in front of a tent, it almost looks like a studio shoot!

Interestingly enough, this chart was created in Adobe Illustrator. Sure it is no Excel, but you can't create your own swatches as easily in Excel as you can in Illustrator. See, charts CAN be fun!

more sun = less drawing = more photography

The following collection is from a recent trip and brings together a few of my favorite things: blue skies, old buildings, and the contrast of nature and man-made objects. Click on the pictures to see in full quality!
