day 196: It’s been months since our part of town got any rain but this evening we got a good old fashioned downpour, complete with lightning and thunder. It is so refreshing to smell the rain… if I could bottle the smell and broadcast it through my blog I would, but for now this photo will have to do. I hope the rain sticks around tomorrow.
day 195: What’s a better way to spend the evening after a long day of working than heading out to the beach? We of course had to bring along our new flip video camera and my canon as well. Being the mature adults that we are, we mostly chased each other around the beach with cameras. Here are a couple of test videos. They are much higher quality on my screen but for some reason they get pixelated when I embed them on youtube. I’m working on figuring out how to fix that 🙂
day 194: I’ve been spending the week trying to get caught up on all of my photo editing and haven’t had much time to go out and shoot interesting things on my free time. I’m hoping to go out this weekend and take some fun photos. In the meantime… here’s another image from the “things in our house” genre. As a side note, I’ve had some people asking how my leg is doing (thanks) it’s much better in terms of how it feels, but it’s looking more gross every day. I didn’t want to make everyone look at another photo… but if you’re curious to see what I mean you can click here.
day 193: This evening Ben and I went on a quest to find and buy a flip video camcorder. We really don’t think we have any use for a big clunky camcorder (especially since I’m always carrying around my big clunky slr) so we decided to buy one of these super cheap and super fun flash memory video recorders. I’m so excited to use it on our trip to France next month… it will be fabulous I’m sure. Ben was quite excited when we finally got one.
day 192: So if you read yesterday’s post you saw that I was photographing a fundraising walk and had an accident that left me with a massive bruise. Well today it turned some lovely shades of purple and blue so I thought I should share. Sorry if this grosses you out 🙂
And yes… it does hurt. A lot. I’ve been hobbling around all day looking quite ridiculous but it’s probably the most painful thing I’ve done to myself in years. And quite embarrassing as well!
day 191: Both yesterday and today I had the pleasure of working as a volunteer photographer at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Long Beach. It was an amazing experience and it feels good to get out and volunteer… and I have never seen so much pink in one place in my entire life! Unfortunately I’m super clumsy and had an accident at the end of the afternoon that left me with a massive bruise and caused me to spend the rest of the day with my leg propped up on the couch with an ice pack. Luckily for me Ben was sweet enough to go out and get dinner and some beautiful sunflowers for me while I rested. I couldn’t resist the sunset light and the flowers… so today’s a two photo day!
day 190: On Saturday I shot a wedding with my friends Crissy and Rowena that took place at the Ritz Carlton and with a reception on a yacht! Talk about fancy! I have a lot of fun shots from the wedding but this is one of my favorites. Not your standard bouquet shot (or portrait for that matter) but for some reason it’s one of my favorites!
