Travel 10/5 | Part 4| Disc Golfing

Heyyyaaahhh!

Here I am for part four, which I’ve been eagerly waiting to show you. πŸ˜€

On 10/5, we decided to go disc golfing with our cousins—which had it successes and failures. I took a lot of cool pictures, but we all stunk at disc golf. πŸ˜‰ Plus, their were some not-so-good attitudes along the way. But you know what? It was nice to just spend time with the family, and worth any of the minuses we might have experienced!

The day started off with me doing silhouettes with the earlier-morning light. I will warn you though that I didn’t actually camera document all of the day, as I did other things that aren’t pictured. πŸ˜€

Travel 10/4 | Part 3 | An Early B-day

Hello, everyone.

Welcome to part three of my October 2017 vacation. I am working on catching back up with school, editing, everyday tasks, etc. So I decided to pace this series just a bit more, instead of posting a new part each day.

10/4/17- Was the day decided upon to celebrate dad and Josiah’s Oct. birthdays. It’s early as dad’s birthday is the 17th, and Josiah’s is the 24th–but our grandparents won’t be there on their birthdays so…

Travel 10/3 | Part 2 | Lazy Day

Hello again!

I am back with day two, part two of our vacation. On this particular day I was rather bored and took many random pictures–the majority of which are boring and dreadful. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ So instead of sharing THOSE dreadful photos…I found 22 which I can narrate the day with.

Patchwork Quilt| A Life Update

And what does that lovely header for this post mean? Why is there a roadway? Well…friends, I went somewhere. But that will come later. I will start with a semi-comprehensive look at the past…two or three weeks? Here we go.

We had a very random snowfall that was very tiny, and melted almost immediately. I did take a photo of aΒ plant in it though…

IMG_5580.JPG

And then a day or two after that, I got the opportunity to try out slow sync flash. You basically set a slow shutter speed (I mostly did 2 seconds or 2″) and spin in a circle while the flash fires. It makes for VERY weird photos but is nonetheless quite fun to do. And it’s especially cool if you’re outside at night.

IMG_5612.JPG
This is not edited. This type of photography just results in looking this way. Cool, huh? Ignore how dumb I look πŸ˜‰ .

You can also use objects. I did this one in my studio/office.

IMG_5616.JPG
I love how the flash freezes the water.

And then after a few days it was time to go to a conference! This is photo from in the car.

IMG_5632.JPG

Then we got to the hotel…which wasn’t awful. But I still don’t really like it.

IMG_5728.JPG
And this is a room at the conference building that I like hanging out in. It’s sort of become a cliche for me, since we’ve gone for three years now.
IMG_5735.JPG
And snacks and drinks were provided at the break times.
IMG_5788.JPG
And outside the building there is this lovely bed of pansies.

And then there was this trip home. And we were all exhausted.

More Recently…

On Saturday, we were at the YMCA–when mom told us we were going on vacation NOW. We hadn’t packed. We didn’t even know where we were going…and our family of eight had two hours to pack. And one of those hours we would have people over. But…those people happen to be the family I am getting to do a newborn photo session with. So this was my first opportunity to get a peek at baby Eva Marie. And she’s adorable! I think the session is on Friday. I’m going for a studio look.

Look, she has hair!Β 

Our 1 and a 1/4 day ‘vacation’ was to our grandparents house. One night my grandpa showed me his father’s old film camera a bunch of other cool stuff that went with it. Sometime, I want to try film.

The I decided to try an interesting technique using a tiny fisheye lens.

No photoshop required!

Then we were home. And I took some pictures of our red bud tree.IMG_6006.JPG

Then some photos of unnamed one πŸ™‚

And that’s pretty much all that I’ve been up to for fun.

What have y’all been doing?

Have you ever gone on unexpected vacations?

“Snow Day”| A Life Update

IMG_2722.JPG

 

Last y’all heard I was pining away for a good snowfall to play in. This post is to tell you…I got one! Now I want a better one though. Several inches this time? Please?…. πŸ™‚ .

But this post will also be giving you some other updates on my life currently.

1. SNOW!!!!

I already did a post on Lucillian Photography called Snow PortraitsΒ which you can take a look at if you haven’t already. Here are some random ones that I’m pretty sure are NOT on my other blog.

p.s These are blissfully unedited πŸ™‚ .Β IMG_2706.JPG

And this is a ‘beautiful’ underexposed photo. Oh well. It’s funny anyways. πŸ™‚

2. The ‘Horrors’ of High School.

I am balancing a fairly big workload right now in school. Thankfully, I have deadlines so I’m not stuck on one thing for forever.

 

Not pictured: several other things, the most notable of which is my math course for this year. I am NOT posting a picture of that πŸ™‚ .Β 

 

3. Taking Silhouette Photos.

One thing I am semi-obsessed with right now in photography- silhouettes. They’re not those impressive sunset silhouettes. They’re just window silhouettes.Β I’m only posting one of them because I want the rest for another post later on.

 

 

IMG_2746.JPG

 

4. Blowing Things Up.

Now, lest you think I am secretly an atomic bomb keeper–I am speaking ofΒ accidentally blowing up a half-boiled egg in the microwave and having to clean up the colossal mess that ensued. πŸ™‚

 

5. Shooting People While They Shoot Others.

This is another heading which could get me into ‘trouble’. But y’all know about the fun kids have shooting each other with Nerf guns?

IMG_2853.JPG
Sorry about the graininess of the photo. Our house has really bad lighting late at night (aka- after the sun sets). I had to compromise with the ISO and the shutter speed. The result? The above photo 😦 πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ .Β 

6. My Mild Obsession With Photographing These Roses.

When our friends were over Mr. H bought his wife some roses. I was so thrilled as I love roses (yeah, they weren’t for me, lol.) because now I could take some photos. They actually lasted pretty long. The very last photo is the last photo I got to take of them before they met their demise 😦 Β .

Mist & Water Droplets

Good afternoon!

I was so thrilled when I woke up and saw…a mist/fog! A thick mist, too. I ran out, stuff sticking to my bare feet- and snapped some quick photos. Then I was told to come upstairs to do yoga with Mom and H. I was literally begging the mist not to go away while I did yoga. And happily, the mist remained. I went out and took more pictures. And my feet were still bare, FYI πŸ™‚ .

 

The first wave…

dewleaf

 

dewweb
There were many tiny little dew-touched webs all hidden in the grass. More to come later.

 

snail.jpg
Oh yes, I found quite a few interesting creatures inching their ways around. Here is my friend the snail πŸ™‚ .

 

webleaf.jpg
There were so many webs around! In this picture you see webs on a leaf…

Landscape of the fog…

Notice the sun behind all the fog. I edited out the telephone wire, BTW.

So, I hope this thing on landscapes in the fog didn’t bore you. In this picture I wanted to remove the telephone wires but found that it wasn’t working so well. This is my favorite. I guess I just don’t know how to remove those wires… 😦 .Β 

 

 

The second wave…

 

'guillotine'.jpg
Introducing you to the windmill. I haven’t shown this to you until now, but we have a ‘windmill’ in our yard. It’s little. In pictures it always looks (to me) like a guillotine. Creepiness, right? πŸ™‚

 

pinkflower.jpg
And now for a shocking burst of color. Just when your eyes were adjusted to the gray-blue landscape fog stuff… πŸ™‚ .Β 

 

rottenpeach.jpg
This is dedicated to the curious amongst us. If you’ve ever wondered what a rotted peach looks like, here you go!

grasshopper.jpg
The final photo! I was just going past quietly when this poor guy jumped right into a spider’s web. It was kinda’ sad 😦 But it WAS a good photography opportunity.Β 

 

Well, I hope I didn’t bore you TOO severely. I actually think this was one of the shortest photoshoots I’ve ever done. But I also think I got the most pictures I’ve ever gotten out of this one. Haha…I didn’t even post ALL of the pictures. πŸ˜‰

 

So, have any of you ever ventured into a supposedly ‘yucky’ day to take photos?

Do you enjoy when fog/ mists come?

Which of the pictures in each category (first wave, landscape, 2nd wave) is your favorite?

What kind of photography would you like to see more of?

 

p.s. Soon I’m going to post pictures I took on another photoshoot. That post will be 1,000 (just kidding) different views of mom’s engagement ring. I probably should’ve borrowed dad’s wedding ring too…but oh well.
