Far enough to wish.

Close enough to sparkle.


[Hot] ‘n spicyyy

I did a photo shoot on red pepper the other day.  Brilliant individual that I am, I managed to get some into my eyes.

But I think it was worth it to get these shots.

Step [in]side the box.

My photography teacher is a creative genius.  She came up with this great idea to create a box of 10′ x 10′.  And I had to stand within this box, not move outside of it, and take pictures.

It was fun.  And I think I got some great results. : )


{|} That’s how things roll in Georgia. : )

Yes.  I haven’t posted in a while.
Yes.  I have an excuse.
Yes.  I’ve been über darn busy.
And yes.  I still have pictures to show for the time I’ve been gone. ; )

These photos are all from the time I spent a few weeks ago in Georgia for a national open debate tournament.  It was absolutely fabulous, and I wish I could go through it all over again. : ))

I got to meet so many new people and strengthen old friendships.  It was pretty much an amazing experience. Jussayin’.

To all of those that made it epic: thank you.  You have no idea how awesome I think you are. : D

And without further ado, here’s a mini swarm of pictures from down South.  Not all are perfect, since I had to work with little light at some points.  But I like them overall. : )

[Oh, and for some reason, all the pictures are showing up in backwards order.  I’m not sure why, but whatever. : P ]


[[There and Back Again]]

Yes, I have emerged from the grave.

Actually, I haven’t quite revived yet.  In between a speech and debate tournament [in which my partner and I placed 4th!], college applications, and schoolwork, my free-time this week was more scarce than snow on the equator.

In other words, dear readers, I have failed to keep up my challenge.

I hoped it wouldn’t happen.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.

This does NOT mean that I haven’t taken quite a few pictures over the past week.  In fact, I have quite a few.  So I’ll dump them on you now. : )

I’ll keep on posting here frequently, but I doubt I’ll be able to continue the blog as an official 365 photoblog.  Or I could possibly strive to restart in February.  Hm, maybe I’ll do just that…

I tried another Christmas lights photo. && I like this one even more. : )

The absolutely fabulous Caroline (and her photos will leave you stunned, no joke)

“Checkmate”

I had fun with long exposure on our road. : ))

…and I like this too.

Panning. At about midnight. Because my creativity was drained.


[Day 4]

So, yes, this is late.  But I legitimately took these photos on the correct date.  I just didn’t upload them on time.  In other words, this still counts. ; )

ALSO,  _some_ people seem to think :coughmom&auntcough: that the last photos look like organs or something…  Well, I apologize if they looked like that to you as well, but they are most definitely mints. : P

Alright, photos.  I took these at night [no duh], and boosted up the aperture so I’d get rays of light off of the Christmas lights.  Shutter speed was 30 seconds.

Ghostliness? || Creepalicious~

Yes, creepalicious happens to one of my favorite non-existent words.  Don’t ask me why.

I think it adequately describes this picture.

Anyway, it snowed, and I tried a ghosting effect.  It worked okay.  I have a hard time getting it to focus on me, and not the background.  But I still like how this looks.  A little spooky, hm?
