Year 2 - Day 161

Didn’t know what to take a picture of today…still not a fan of the “selfie”…

Year 2/Day 122

Worked the lunch shift…and then hung out at work for the rest of the night.  Haha.  Guess I love those guys! ;)

Year 2 - Day 97

Wandered outside in our backyard today and found this interesting shot.

Year 2/Day 95

Year 2 - Day 95

It’s been raining for days, and it has been so gloomy.

Thankfully, the sun decided to peak out and say “Hello” for a little while today.  I love how the sun shines and reflects off wet surfaces.  I had a moment to try and capture the beauty before it disappeared.

Day 53

Day 53

I can’t wait for the day I get an awesome camera set up with a true macro lens.  Until then though, I’ll keep trying!  :)

Not much happened today.  Just hung around the house, relaxing.

Although, I’ve got to edit the photos for a wedding that I shot last weekend.  I keep procrastinating…so I guess I better buckle down and get it done.

Day 36

Day 36

So, my story today has nothing to do with my photo of the day.

Today, or should I say this evening, has been one of those days where I ended up getting lost in the internet.  Have you ever had one of those days?  You know, your simply checking your timeline on Facebook, and wind up clicking on a video link.  You notice an interesting looking link on the right side of the page, and click to see what that’s about.  Next thing you know, you’ve been watching videos for hours, and have found 2 new bands that you now love.  :)

That’s kinda what happened to me.  Tonight, I have been exposed to Lindsey Sterling and Pentatonix.  WOW!  First of all, what amazing musicians!  Secondly, what amazingly different styles of music they are.

Lindsey Sterling (http://www.lindseystirling.com/) is a classically trained violinist, who plays with electronic sounds and dances with reckless abandonment.  She is fan-tas-tic.  I will absolutely be getting some of her music as soon as possible.

Pentatonix (http://ptxofficial.com/) is a group of out-of-this-world vocal musicians, who harmonize without using instruments, only their voices.  Double wow.  These guys are crazy good, and again, I want their stuff ASAP.  :)

After doing some basic research on these two artists, I came to realize that they both got their start on TV talent shows.  Who knew!?  Lindsey Sterling was on America’s Got Talent, and Pentatonix won The Sing-Off.  Lucky me, today I was introduced to them, and can now enjoy the music that they create.  :)

There may be a lot of crap (for lack of a better word) on the internet nowadays, but it’s days like today that I can really appreciate the good ole World Wide Web.  Social media may be crippling our youth from actual social interactions, but with it, we can also share things of great inspiration and beauty.  We can expose people to music/art/ideas that they possibly never would have witnessed without the internet.  For that, I am grateful for technology and the connections that can be made.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to share MY love of photography to “strangers”.  Although, even with that, I beginning to make new friends and share memories.

 

Day 35

Day 35

Today was pretty quiet.  I had an interview today, so my morning was filled with getting ready for that.  After lunch, I enjoyed a nice afternoon nap.

This picture was thanks to Kroger.  :)  Ah, grocery store pictures.  I really like the colors of this one.

Not much to say today.  Hopefully tomorrow I will be more creative.
