film & fourth year

Dru-1 Horses-1 Me-1a few favorites from a roll of film i’ve had in my camera for a few months now! dru actually just bought a scanner, so now we’ll be able to have all of our negatives uploaded and in a much better quality than the discs we’ve been getting from walmart. much better!

on another note… my fourth year project has been ordered!

(panic totally ensued typing that).

but seriously, that’s it, that’s all, its done, and there’s no making changes now. such a weird feeling! i just need to stop second guessing choices in the mean time. it was hard to narrow down what i’ve been up to and i would never be able to include everything that i would like (i’m a bit nonstalgic for shake face right now) but my teachers and few friends i’ve had to get opinions from have been supportive of what has been put together. so, i think i’m going to be really happy with it! only 29 days until the show, and the days to no more classes count… 16!

hope everyone’s having a good week!

much love,

candace

end of term woes

photo taken in bottle cove early last week!

i’m normally efficient to very annoying and well crossed t, i’ll admit. i like having things done and out of the way rather than have a to-do list taller than i am, because there’s nothing better than having the freedom to come and go as you please and enjoy things as they come up. especially rather than being stuck to your (albeit, beautiful new macbook pro) laptop writing a paper at snails pace. or in-between unnecessary facebook creeps… guilty.

sigh.

i think i’m still half caught up thinking about how i wish i could relive last week, although maybe with a few extra hours of sleep! i got to clue it up with an absolutely mental shift at the bar last night (st. paddy’s day really is madness, we actually an out of glasses at one point which was hilarious and awful at the same time) and a much needed visit from the little bundle of love that is my baby cousin addy today too! she really is the cutest, even though the little fart wouldn’t say my name today. i haven’t heard her say it yet, she’s said it to everyone else but me!

on the bright side, there are 19 days until I’m officially home free for the summer. 19 days and counting…

much love,

candace

nonstop & steven tyler

today’s been one of those wonderfully packed days. actually, to be honest, i’ve had a pretty wonderful last few days! i’ve also lucked out and gotten to house-sit for some awesome friends of the family, which means that i’ve gotten way more homework done than I would have if I was home. which means more time to just relax and enjoy a few days work free with the boyfriend too!

as far as today went… i so far have got up early (at ten, but that’s early by my standards) made it to class on time (two minutes late), dreaded art history class got cancelled (victory), picked up my photo book (can’t believe I’m uploading an instagram picture of it, but I’ve managed to forget my camera cord at home so instagram will have to do for now), and got to enjoy some lunch at brewed with a friend. then, my photo class and i all headed down the bay for a photo trip to bottle cove which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas around and I’ll never get tired of photographing it.

then, we drove back and i had run right back to school to meet dave howells and have a quick meeting discussing the next three packed days (beyond excited), came home and showered, and finished a book I should have never started last night considering it took me three hours to dry my hair, get dressed, and make myself supper because i was too busy trying to read.

point being, tiredness and unnecessary hour-taken away aside (i am ALL for an extra hour, but when daylight savings actually takes away an hour, i’m not so much a fan) i actually love days where they’re nonstop. the next few days will definitely be like that too, but i’m REALLY looking forward to it. my camera’s been dealing with some neglect lately! and the whole experience is going to be huge.

………. also. aerosmith to salmon fest?! i legitimately almost cried Kirsten Bell tears (click the link and you’ll understand) when i heard. i’m actually not a big “loyal” band person, and only have a select few bands i can say i’ve really loved and still listen to, but aerosmith is one of the very few. come july, i guarantee you i’ll be up front in the crowd losing my mind when steven tyler comes out on the stage. 123 days and counting!

so much love,

candace

bottle cove night photos

okay, i know i’ve shot bottle cove a lot (especially for my film this year) but i’m still not tired of shooting it at all. i’ve got to get better at night photography, but i definitely still had a good night . actually, i’m pretty sure life in general’s going pretty awesome right now – i just need a good job for the summer and i’ll be set. still though, no complaints! just waiting for the last of my friends to get home, then it’ll actually be summer to me.

much love,

candace

film work

as much as I love my digital camera… film has totally stolen me, and I love the graininess of it. i’m in a mad rush this week to keep printing off prints for the art auction this weekend, and just wanted to post two of my favorites – I have such a beautiful friend! and bottle cove blows me away every time I see it. even though that’s probably in the triple digits by now.

back to the madness for me.

much love,
