sunday

what a different sunday. i’m used to sleeping in and going out for breakfast, photos all afternoon, some cooked/jigg’s dinner for supper, and then sitting back to enjoy [stress over] some walking dead.

but real life knocked, although it’s a bit of a stretch to call university “real life” to me, and i’m currently appreciating just hanging out at work for christmas hours doing some tidying and enjoying an americano. not to mention the excuse to get up and out of the house away from a to-do list the length of my arm… which i might add to the profs who occasionally migrate here, will be promptly revisited as soon as i’m finished work.

seriously though, i’m voting for eight days in a week. has anyone else seen the meme floating around with the caption “the first five days after the weekend are always the hardest!” and the girl sobbing into her hands? totally makes me laugh every time i see it.

much love,

beach glass haul

what a nuts week. the countdown to jamaican times has shifted from being 13 days into one powerpoint presentation, one artist statement essay, one canadian art history 8 page paper, one feminism project, one drawing project, one digital project, and final edits to a wedding, family shoot, and engagement shoot.

i feel like i’m behind about a month’s worth of sleep too, so logically… today was spent picking up beach glass. now, i know the train of thought there isn’t exactly solid but i’ll explain. the intention was photos for a project, but after seeing beach glass for miles (we actually walked over 4 kms) photos were forgotten and i managed to fill up an entire bag. its crazy how much going outside and just doing something in fresh air can put you back together! does anyone have any ideas on what to do with the glass? i know it’ll be made into some sort of project, but as per what we’re not exactly sure!

hope everyone else is enjoying their saturday : )

woody point travels

its no surprise my car is just about photo road trip away from 18,000 kms. although after only getting it new on june 1, you’d think that number would be a little smaller! but call it taking advantage of this beautiful province, there’s no such thing as a wasted drive. just call it location scouting! (it helps justify all that gas money too).

the two above film photos are from a road trip out to woody point a few weeks ago. we definitely showed up in an off season – galliott studios was closed, whaat – but will be going back next summer for sure. it’s such a beautiful little place!

i can’t recommend enough for people to pick up some film though. borrow a film camera from someone, or dig one out of the back of a parent or grandparent’s closet. even if it’s been sitting there for 20 years, i bet you 20 dollars it still works. film is the best.

steady brook falls

a frame of steady brook falls, taken from a time lapse shot last week! time lapses are the bommmb. i’ll definitely post a video once it’s all put together!

scary thought for the day? 14 days until I am clued up with school for christmas (with only 6 actual class days left), 16 days until jamaica, and 136 until i’m finished for good. i know this stuff always ends up done, but hellooo towering workload! i proposed to my coffee over breakfast, we plan to be together until the very end.

much love,

monday? monday.

today was definitely a monday.

on the bright side though, i picked up another disc of film photos i couldn’t be happier with. especially the last one! thoughts?

much love,

diptych

guess who just figured out how to do diptychs with just lightroom? THIS KID. i think it’s cool i’m still figuring out in-and-outs of editing software i’ve had for a while now, it means i’m getting that much more efficient with it. and it also meant i could work on and finish up a set of photos from my trip to st. john’s this summer to see a few of the best friends! goofs, or wha? the one of them falling still kills me.

now, if only that efficiency could be applied to homework! i will finish my projects, i will finish my projects, i will… finish… my projects… i will… finish sons.. of anarchy…¬†what?

much love,

long weekend visit

cannot even begin to start with how much i miss photographing this face! leanne and her boyfriend taylor (a first-timer to newfoundland, who it was awesome to finally meet after hearing about him for so long!) and dru and i took a drive out to port au port this past long weekend on their too-short visit to show them the hidden falls area we came across not too long ago.

the light the whole drive was unreal, with light beams coming down from the clouds everywhere and this gorgeous orange glow from the sunset. and while it was a fair way out of corner brook, it was worth it for sure and i’m officially bummed the visit wasn’t longer. too many friends are living away!

much love,

candace
