30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 30

Wow. I can't believe today is the last day of the 30 Day Photography Challenge. It definitely flew by and was a lot of fun. I can't wait to participate in another fun thing like this one. Thanks to Mary from White Peach Photography for this awesome challenge!

30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 29

Day 29 of the 30 Day Photography is something Black and White. It took me a while to come up with an idea for this one. I decided on one of my angels. I love angels and I have this one sitting on my dvd shelf. I looked up today and say it sitting there and figured it would be perfect for today.

30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 28

Day 28 of the 30 Day Photography Challenge is of flowers. It's a gorgeous day out and I found these beautiful flowers in the park near my apartment.

30 Photography Challenge

Ok, time to update my photos for the 30 Day Photography Challenge. I was hoping for better weather on the day 23 for the sunflare, but I was out of luck. I was actually out of luck for several days. So I'm just going to use a photo I took with my Droid a couple of weeks ago.

I was also hoping to get a photo of my boyfriend's roommate's black lab for day 24 for a photo of an animal, but I haven't been to his house at the same time the dog has :(
She's a gorgeous too, so I'll just have to post a photo of her another time. So, because I don't a pet and that's pretty much the only time I see an animal long enough to take a photo, I'm posting one from our trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo last summer. Definitely cheating on this one, but this is an awesome shot!

Day 25 was something pink. I picked up this frame at a local arts festival for my niece that day.  I just couldn't resist it. And the ability to have it personalized made it even better!

Day 26 was something close up. I'm not too happy with the way this turned out, but my camera is only auto focus and was very difficult to keep what I wanted in focus in time to snap the photo.  I wish I could afford a manual camera right now, but unfortunately until I find a "real" job I'm just stuck with the 'ole point and shoot. :(

Finally, today's photo, Day 27, is from a distance. I chose a flag that is flying directly outside of my apartment. In the spirit of the upcoming holiday I thought it was a perfect opportunity to feature it.

Jersey Wedding

So this past weekend we took a ride to Jersey for a friend's wedding. It was nice to get away. It was a gorgeous day and an even more gorgeous wedding. What did I learn this weekend? Well, getting away from Erie and the lake means that the weather pretty much stays the same when the sun goes down. In other words, I don't need to wear jeans and a hoodie after I say goodbye to the sun. Secondly, driving in Jersey is RIDICULOUS! I've never been somewhere that allows no left turns and legally designates U turns. Add that, to the absurd amount of traffic and it was insane. I'm glad I wasn't driving and even more glad that I don't live there.

The ceremony was outside and had some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding. It was soooo good.

Had to get a pic with the happy couple.

We had a blast at the reception. Much love was represented to the fist pump. After all, how can you be in Jersey, near the shore, and not bring out the fist pump?

Time to Play Catch Up

I've got some catch up to do today with my photos in the 30 Day Photography Challenge. I was in Jersey for a wedding all weekend and had to finish a freelance job yesterday so I haven't had time to post anything until now.

Day 18 of the challenge was your shoes. I whore these cute things to the wedding that day.

Day 19 was something orange. I don't have much of anything orange and I certainly didn't have much with me while traveling. However, my favorite body mist right now happens to have an orange cap. Lucky me :)

Day 20 was a bokeh.

Day 21 was a faceless self-portrait. Because I spent most of the day with my computer working on a freelance job, I decided to use that as part of my photo.

Finally, today's photo was of hands. Because I was still finishing up this job today, I decided to use my tablet as a prop and show my hand at work. By the way, I absolutely love my tablet!

Finally caught up! This makes me very happy :)

30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 17

So, I couldn't post yesterday's photo because I don't have a good enough camera. I am sad about this. Unfortunately, mine does not allow manual changes, it's just a point and shoot, so I couldn't do the long exposure photo. However, today's photo in the 30 Day Photography Challenge is Technology. I am the first to say that I love technology and depend on it everyday. My new favorite piece of technology right now is my Kindle. I recently purchased it and absolutely love it! I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering purchasing an e-reader.
