A Message from Papa

Happy fathers day, one day late! I don't get to talk to my dad too much because he is busy with work and school and so am I. But I got to talk to him yesterday for just a little bit. He had to go down to Santa Barbara for some work at the UC there so we talked about that for a bit and he told me that I should look into going there for grad school. Seeing as I only have 2 semesters left (unless I change my mind about something and am done in Dec. which probably wont happen but there is a possibility!!) I am thinking it might be time to start thinking about grad schools. He sent me a text this morning (yes, my dad AND mom text me:) ) telling me how beautiful it was there!! AHHH. I was so jealous!!! So I am going to have to start going to the advisors and getting everything on track to start applying for the coming year. It's crazy how fast the time has gone. I still remember graduating high school like it was yesterday!!! WEIRD!!!

Plastic Camera

Our last assignment was Holgas. I've played with them before and really love the eerie feel they give the images. I love that they are plastic. I love that you have hardly any control... it makes photography fun... and interesting... :) So... The first role I took I ruined (oops!) so I did another role in about 3o min at porter park and wasn't too sad about what I got. I'm going to start shooting a series for photo 2/ BFA application and part of me is tempted to shoot with holga. We'll see...

Cloudy With a Chance of Rain

On Saturday I got off work an hour early to go make a picnic for a little boating adventure... we wanted it to be nothing less than the best boating trip EVER!!! We had planned on leaving at 3 but that didn't happen, naturally. So around 4 we On our way out to Ririe, Logan noticed that these really dark clouds were moving right over the reservoir. So much for best boating trip ever. So we got out there and got on the boat and started heading out to one of the docs where we could have our wonderful picnic with everything a picnic requires... Sandwiches. Lemonade. Water. Sun Chips. Albertson Cookies (if you haven't had them you really NEED to!! They're amazing!) And some other cookies. We were on the doc for about 30 min when the clouds were officially moving over us and the sun was gone. Not only was the sun gone, the wind picked up. The water was choppy. Chances of any good wakeboarding/ water skiing were GONE!!! And on top of that... getting in the water was no longer even an option because there was no way to dry off without sun. Nothing but misery!!! Honestly! So.. getting off work early and making the most amazing picnic for the most amazing boating trip was almost pointless. sad? I know!!! All of the girls had towels wrapped around them as blankets because who would ever think that at the end of May it is going to rain? Sometimes i forget that I actually live in a place where the sun shining is almost nothing but wishful thinking... maybe i'll get motivated this week... haha
