Watercolors with Carol
This past Sunday, my friend Carol invited me over to her beautiful home to play with some watercolors. She’s an accomplished artist who is a master of the medium, so I asked her about maybe teaching me a few tips. Not only did she oblige, but she also let me play with her adorable dogs, Glory and Blondie, made us a delicious, completely organic lunch, and gave me a jar of honey from her husband’s backyard beehive! It was a gorgeous, inspiring day!
By the way, this is my first photo set since resolving to carry around my DSLR everywhere. I am excited to document ordinary life events with more clarity.
I made myself this padded camera bag insert/organizer for my purse. I’ve decided that I rely too much on my phone, so I will be carrying around my DSLR more often to maximize creativity and constantly sharpen my photography skills. Even though I am trying to dress and accessorize more like an adult so potential clients will take me seriously, I can’t help but indulge my child at heart with this juvenile print. I feel like I am carrying around my own juicy little secret. #sewing #photography #batman #life
Came straight from belly dance class to photograph the La Mirada Symphony Pops Concert. If you are local, they are having a second benefit show, featuring Broadway star Susan Egan, tonight at 8 PM for as low as $11/ticket! Your admission treats you to a lovely live concert and allows the La Mirada Symphony to continue providing free concerts, FREE ARTS ENRICHMENT, to the entire community! It’s a beautiful thing! #music #symphony #photography (at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts)
These cookies are really ugly on their own, but they sure are delicious.
I really need to buy some new china/dishware. I think these were a cheap set we got from the grocery store when we first moved in. Being broke, however, that’s probably not happening any time soon, haha. Perhaps I can buy some specifically for photography purposes at thrift or antique shops? I have this small thing against buying clothes for regular wear that are possibly previously worn by unhygenic, old—or just plain dead—people. Just, I don’t know where that’s been, ya’ know? Now I ask myself, “Do I have a problem against putting food on dishware that dead people have eaten from?” Hrrmmm….
I’ve been getting very fascinated with decorating food, and with my discovery of this blog, I am inspired to get better not only at making food taste wonderful, but also photographing them looking like they would taste that way. I made these for my friend Aaron for his birthday, and I’m happy with the way the cupcakes—as well as the photograph of them—came out. Happy eating! =)
