I'm Baaaack...

Well that wasn't much of a wait, was it? My computer came home today, working better than before (I can actually turn it on now!) and I'm happy to share with you two pictures from my computer archives. Well, they aren't THAT old, but I thought you would enjoy them. These are from the Equine Affaire 2008. I know I have already posted some pictures from that set, but these got left out, and I feel they should be on this blog!

Plus, bringing out some old pictures helps me remember how much fun I had taking them.






The sun has come out, but the wind makes it so hard to get a decent picture. Maybe there is some way the wind could help me.
hmmm.

Waiting for the sun

I'm sorry folks, but the blog wont be updated for quite a while. I REALLY hate to say that. My laptop crashed, the computer company has it right now and is fixing it. So I'm using my mom's computer, and it has no pictures on it. I should be posting in a day or two, I need some time to get some shots. The weather has been nasty (as in overcast and clouds, and even rain) and I don't like shooting in dark lighting. so, I need some time for the sun to come out so I can treat you all to some new, vibrant photos. I bet I've lost so many readers. I'm sorry.


have a good day.

Valerie

My horse, Valentine, has been lame in her back leg for a few weeks. She is getting better. I had her out in the round pen yesterday, letting her walk around, and snapped this picture of her eye. Very cool color, I thought.


Thanks for the visit! Stay classy!

Experiment, Experiment.

A week until May 2008 is over, wow. It came to fast! That's okay though, three more months until the next Switchfoot concert I'm going to.


Photography is all about experimenting right? So here I am, 11:30 at night, and I'm sitting here thinking about experimenting. Experimenting is a funny word, you know?
It can mean a few different things, like the kind of experiment you do to figure something out, to create a meaning. Then there's the sort of experimenting that really means nothing at all, you just "seeing what will happen". Life can be sort of an experiment, too, but you cant just "see what happens". You have to have a purpose. Everyday we make changes, everyday.
*looks up Jon Foreman quote*
oh, yes, here we go:
"Every day of your life, you change the world. Absolutely, yes, we're out to change the world. I mean, you change it whether you like it or not. You wake up and you talk to the grocer. You either kick your dog or you pet him. There's a million decisions you have every day where you change the world." - Jon Foreman
Just a few 11:30 at night words for you all. Thanks for visiting.
God bless.

Had to share this one EARLY...

I love this photograph. It's so awesome, the girl and her horse. She is bathing him.



You can really see a bond in this picture, a bond between horse and girl.
Also, I wonder what the girl is thinking?

Dodge

Well, I had one vote on the poll today. Someone voted more B&W's, so here's one now.



How do you like it? Please tell me.

Two New Features

I added two new things to the sidebar today. A little "About the Artist" thing, and a poll. Please take time to vote. Thanks!

Horse shoe.

This one is (I think) a great photograph. I really like the angle, and composition.


It's such a joy to take pictures. I am glad for those who can do something this fun and make money off it. I hope someday for my career, I can be a professional photographer.

Old Iowa

Ah, I love this picture. So simple, yet it really creates a path for your own imagination. Know what I mean? This is the license plate of an old truck my dad has in the backyard. I guess the vechicle used to belong to someone who lived in Iowa. I have been thinking about an idea of naming my photographs and displaying the name on the blog of each picture. Then I thought, 'you know, I should leave that up to the viewers, because each picture means something different to each individual'.

Girl, Shoe, and Leafs.

Here are a few pictures from my photo collection I have been enjoying lately. The first is of my best friend, Sierra. I'm always telling her to pose or do something. The second photograph is of my aunts tennis shoe. I loved the color in this photo, it's vibrant. The last is just something that caught my eye outside of the hotel room when we were in Santa Clara for the concert. Just a leaf, simple, not much at all, but I liked it.

Switchfoot Logo

Taken at the concert. It was dark, and I was trying at some shots, and Switchfoot had their logo hanging up. It was so lit up, I captured it in this shot. Its quite beautiful, to me : )

Lacking Good Photographs

I must say, I admit, I confess, I have not been very good about posting good pictures lately. Sure, I posted concert pictures, but those were more for fun. I am really busy at the moment, and suffering for severe after-the-concert-depression. I miss it! I found out Crab (no its not her real name, its her gangsta' name y'all!!) and I will be going to another concert in September! My favorite band will be playing. Cant wait. So far away though. Well, I'm promising, today or tomorrow I WILL post some good photos. Thanks for hanging in there with me. This is sort of embarrassing, not having any real "arty" pictures to share. Thanks again though, for visiting,

what a blessing you all are!!

MOST AMAZING TIME OF MY LIFE!

WOW.

That's all I can say. The concert was so amazing, my first concert! My friend and I had such a good time! Our two favorite bands played great shows. It was incredible. I got autographs and hugs from Chap Stique and NaDaddy of Family Force 5, and the front man of my favorite band ever, Switchfoot was in the crowd, I ALMOST got to reach out and touch his hand, but just BARLEY couldn't reach. It was so amazing, he was so close, and I knew the song he was singing, so I sang along. Here's a few pictures from the show. They are not very good at all, because the security guards kept looking at me funny and there was a sign that clearly stated "No pictures or video" I managed to get a few anyways!



^ Me (left) and my best friend forever, Crab (right)


^ Family Force 5!
^ Family Force 5 again! Sadley, in both pictures I didn't get the coolest band member, Chap Stique. I'm sorry Chappy!!

The Great Delay

As you might already know, I'll be going to a concert on May 10th. We will be leaving May 9th and staying until May 11th. Because of this, I have decided to completely dedicate my week to school, because I wont have time to do it and I really want to do it well. So there will be what I have titled "The Great Delay". So, in more simple terms, I wont be posting anything for a WEEK. Yikes. Well, school is top priority! Be back in a week, and remember,

stay classy!! (its a switchfoot thing, a band called switchfoot.)

I left out a few... oops.

Well as you might know, my last pictures posted were of plants. After posting it, I realized I left out a few pictures I was planning on sharing. Here they are. The first two are of the Honeysuckle flowers in the backyard. They smell so beautiful!

New Layout!

New layout today... theme colors are purples, greys, and black. I like the banner- the spilled ink or however you want to see it looks pretty sweet. Hope you like it!
