BLUES



I'll admit it: I love overexposed or underexposed pictures. Sure well exposed pictures are the more honest choice, but sometimes it lacks drama.

Personally, I take over/underexposed pictures often, it just suits me better (at least for my recreational pictures, not for class).

Just a regular work outfit for a regular work day.





My hair is so long right now. I like it, but I'm really starting to get that itch that lets me know I need a haircut soon...

LIGHT & DARK


Self portrait.


This is the best self portrait I could produce for my photography class, isn't it sad? I think the teacher's very, very high expectations from the beginning really threw me off. Not that I'm justifying myself, I'm just saying, I like the picture, but I just feel it could have been better.

Below is just an architectural detail picture, nothing out of the ordinary.

PINK SHADES & A BLUE SHOE

I've been plenty busy lately, but somehow I found time to buy these really cool pink 'sunglasses' (they were promotional wear for the fight against breat cancer), but still how cool are they??




Also, I managed to finish my first oil painting ever (I started the second one two days ago), and I think it came out pretty good. I'm really enjoying the process. I like to just sit down and mix the paint and then get lost trying to really make something out of nothing (you know what I mean).

The still life is from objects that I own which made it fun rather than just looking at a picture. It's 16"x24".



Excuse the quality of the pics they're from my iPhone.

WALLPAPER



It's hard to explain why I like this setup (it's a little too conservative for me), but I think it's just the general charm about it. Sure maybe I don' like all of it together, but I could surely use some components of it.

I've really been craving to decorate something, even the manual labor of dragging furniture around so you can see what lighting works best with the sofa or how much glare you want on the art work...

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

WITH LOVE



Happy Valentine's Everyone!


I thought I'd share a photo from my Mad Men calendar.

The February photo is of none other than the beautiful Christina Hendricks. Doesn't she look just gorgeous? Very fitting for the holiday.

MIDNIGHT FUN




Up until this weekend we had had great weather down here in Texas. It's still not bad, just colder with a hint of snow.

Went outside to make a fool of myself while my brother took these pictures. Wore a GAP dress, JS shoes, Target turtleneck.









BROKEN



Playing around with the settings for a series of Photoshoots for my photography class.
