Normally I'd start off this post with "not much has been happening lately" but alas, thats not completely true. Summer has been happening, and its absolutely wonderful. Even if it includes some changing of myself..which, is not exactly wonderful, but its needed. Changing yourself and trying to be more like Christ is never easy, an often times you don't feel like being "happy". Its hard and stressful, and sometimes embarrassing, but that's just life and I'm just glad I have Jesus to help me through it all, not to mention my awesome family that God has extremely blessed me with. :) AND awesome friends too. Yesterday I got to see 2 friends I hadn't seen in forever, tho I see their brother all the time, lol. I've known this family for a loonnngg time, and the oldest kid is my biggest brothers good friend so he comes over frequently, and he has sisters my age who I never get to see. So this time, they came over too. It was a great visit filled with watching movies, swimming, an hanging out having a good time. I hope to do it again sometime VERY soon.
So I'm still not sticking with this blogging thing very well, I needed some motivation, so I got on here about an hour ago an found a bunch of random  fun blogs, read a few posts, and got motivated to write here! :) I know I said I was gonna change this into a photography blog and not fill it with my ramblings, but I changed my mind, it can be both.I don't often change my mind when I make it up about sometime. hehe.
Tomorrow a good friend is getting married, so happy and excited for him! I'm excited for the wedding, I love weddings. My sisters was the most fun wedding I've been to yet, hehe, prolly cos I was maid of honor ;-) But weddings  in general have a fun atmosphere about them. Now I myself will never have a big wedding, I'll prolly elope when the time comes, lol.
This week has been weird, having friends in the middle of the week made it feel like it was the weekend, specially since they were, um, weekend friends. like people that normally come over on a Friday..instead of a Wednesday. But its all good, extra long weekend feel for me!
I started school, I wanted to start way earleir, but I didn't get my math till like 3 or 4 weeks ago, and then as soon as I got it, life started getting busy busy. Lots of late nights (one all nighter) and lots of sleeping in till 12 or past (today I slept till 2! :p.. ) then VBS this week, which started Sunday, ended yeah..I'm only on like lesson 4 of math. BUT, I have gotten some good school reading in, its surprisingly enjoyable too. hehe. Ok. Since this is a photography AND life blog, I think I've covered enough about my life, and now,  pics I snapped today...What do u think? You like it?

Uuughgh.,,i HATE blogger sometimes. It refuses to load the picture correctly. Therefore. its sideways..can I shoot something??

An, for some reason, this one loads just fine. grrr....

And this one!..I think its cos I didn't crop it when I edited it...
Well, I better go, I'll prolly just read or eat or swim. Tho its not very sunny out right now :p Anyway. Hope you enjoyed the pix, tell me what you think! Have a great weekend everyone.

Soooooo....its been like 2 weeks? Yeah. Sorry about that. :D  But I have been busy!! I mean, there were days when I wasn't doing much, but I didn't feel like blogging at all, so I didn't put myself in pain and I just took a break. I'm still kinda on that brake, but I thought maybe you'd like to see some of my photography that I've been up to. I've been thinking of just making this a photography blog. Cos its what I'm best at, and I would much rather just post a gazillion photo's than tell you about my crazy life. And it wouldn't JUST be kool photography pix, it would be random pix of my life and junk like that too, maybe even some music videos once in awhile. :D
Ok. So here are some recent pix. Hope you enjoy!!

I've been having a blast discovering how to use limited editing tools on picnik. I'll give a little explanation to the photos. Alot of my work comes from me being bored. When I am bored, I grab my camera and have, once again, a photo shoot with me, myself and I. It gets kinda lonely having ME as the ONLY model, but I've gotten used to it, and in fact, I rather like it. When its just me, I know exactly what I want, so I dont have to stress out on trying to communicate my idea to my model. The first picture, I wasn't really "trying" to get "pop-art" feel, it just kinda happens, same thing with the others..things just..happen, when I sit down and begin to edit. I get an idea, and it just kinda explodes into whateverness. I've gotten a little crap for the 2nd photo, not just from friends, but from random strangers too. Saying its creepy and demented and they don't get it...I assume that when people see this kinda of art, they think the person coming up with it has issues and, well, likes "dark and creepy, gothic things" or whatever..well, I don' have issues, and I don't like alot of demented or gothic creepy things. BUT, I do have a weakness for dark quirky things, and to me, this is kind of a Tim Burton creepiness, and to me that's the GOOD kinda of creepy, not the kind that comes with having issues. lol. Sorry, I just had to clear all that up. <3 Oh, and another thing, to anyone who might not "get" it, well, there is not much to "get" cos there is not real story behind these pix..hehe :)

These were inspired by some face painting photos I saw somewhere. The thing on my face in just like a drape, kinda abstract of whatever u wanna call it, I dont really know...
 What do u think of this one? Please...ddooonnt tell me u like it cos u r being nice, but really, do I look..decent, from this angle? lol. I know that sounds wierd, but I always think I look horrid from this angle. :D

Lol. I look like a tard, but I LOVE the editing. Hope you do too!
Ttyls people, please, share my link with your friends!
God Bless. <3
