Decorating Candles...?

While spending time with Justin's family I found that decorating candles is a yearly tradition around Thanksgiving. This is his mom's doing from what I understand, and I will admit being skeptical beforehand. But once I sat down and started to play with the different lace and ribbon, I actually enjoyed myself. It also gave me time for some additional 'family bonding' without Justin being around, which was probably good.


Everyone's candle's...

Apple Pie

I am not a big sweets person, but I adore Pie. Apple and Pumpkin being my favorites! Well, on this Thanksgiving trip with Justin's family I have had the great joy to have both! Even though I was sick and couldn't gorge myself like I normally do on Thanksgiving, I did make sure that both Pies were enjoyed... The pumpkin pie was his grandmother's and the Apple (shown below) was 'favorite Aunt Barbie's famous apple pie'...

Geocaching

Today after a very Yummy (if not fully enjoyed, due to me being ill) Turkey Dinner we (Justin, Em, Chris, Harry, and myself) went Geocaching. This was actually really kinda enjoyable, in a slightly dorky way. But I loved it. Justin and I took a GeoCoin. Basically it is a coin that you can track and see where its been and where it goes. You take it and move it to another cache. I found one will place it in a new cache in GA. I am looking forward to it.

Thanksgiving

I am spending Thanksgiving this year with my boyfriend's family in Florida. So far the trip has been fun and relaxing, although I am not feeling %100. Tomorrow on top of the standard turkey and family time that come with Thanksgiving, there was also talk to geocaching. I have never done this, but I think it sounds like loads of fun. And I will be keeping my camera close at hand for the trip, so pictures will follow.

Youtube

So... I now have a Youtube account. It will be fun to be able to upload some video's to show everyone what I am up to. I have started out with a slide show of the images from my Photoshop skills book I did last Summer.

Music Monday: Peter Bjorn and John

This weeks video is Peter Bjorn and John's 'Young Folks'. I love the tune of this song and everyone should love a good whistle. It is really catchy and I find myself humming it randomly.

National Portrait Gallery

I am going to keep the Portrait theme going with my posts for the day. I found the National Portrait Gallery online. It highlight multiple artists and their photography. I think it is worth looking through to get a few ideas.

Solider Portraits

I found this series on Vanity Fair online called 'Portraits of Korengal' by Tim Hetherington. It is portraits of soldiers. I think it is pretty impressive. Each photo seems to have a different feel and look. I wish I could pull off this kind of unique and moving photography.



Portrait Tutorial

I found this great article on how to shoot portraiture on Geoff Lawrence's website. It is full of tips and tutorials. I thought it would be really helpful to me and my fellow classmates as well as anyone else who might be interested.
