What Is This Place?

This site is a work in progress - much like life, actually. I am an amateur photographer who enjoys playing with my Canon EOS 10D. Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, since I'm really just learning. Like what you see? Encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Fashion Forward


Theme Thursday: Fashion

(And yes, I've shown this photo before, but it was so perfect, I had to share again. She's cute enough to look at twice, no?)

Is It Just Me, Or Is This REALLY Weird?

I think - I THINK - that car is offering me a Coke.

BSM: Reminder

First of all, I would just like to let out a little squeal of joy that I got to meet Tracey this weekend! We didn't get to talk too much, but it was good to meet someone I've admired for a while now. And now, after meeting her, it's time for another one of her Best Shot Mondays. She asked us if we had any shots that explain what's been going on in our lives, and boy do I. I'm super stressed about work, because school will be starting awfully soon, and I still have so much to do. But while I was in Vegas with my mom, I saw this, and just had to snap it:

I think it's an important reminder for all of us.

For more Best Shots, head on over to the lovely Tracey!

More of My Mother

A lot of you seemed excited to see more shots from the photo shoot with my mom that I referenced in this week's Best Shot Monday. If you'd like to see some hilarious "mess-up" pictures, click on over to my main blog and this post. I highly recommend it for some good chuckles.

Here, though, I present you a set of some of my favorite shots of my mom, with no particular theme other than that I like 'em.





And a few shots taken with my tripod and self-timer:



My mom is the bestest! :)

In other news, I'm going to SF for BlogHer tomorrow! Any of you going to be there? Want to meet? Shoot me an email!

BSM: My Mother's Laughter

Saturday was my mom's birthday, and I wanted to do a mini photo shoot to get some more recent pictures of her, as well as the two of us together. I'll be showing some of my favorites through the week, but for my Best Shot Monday, I just had to share this photo of my mother, laughing, happy, natural, and beautiful.

Love you, Mamala.

For more Best Shot Mondays, head over to Tracey's place. (Oh, and wish her a hearty welcome home from vacation!)

Petals Fall


This is one of my favorite pictures for some reason, and explaining why is a bit beyond me. I talked once before about the beauty of dying flowers, but even then I wasn't able to describe what I find so inspiring. Perhaps it is just something inside of me searching for beauty in a life's end. If it always has to go, may it always go with such quiet dignity and grace as these petals.

I Wear My Patriotism on My Fingernails


Hope you all had a great Fourth of July!
