flowers in my hair

Diptych-1 Peach Rose-1i am a blessed kid this week! after celebrating the end of classes annd two years together (whoa), dru gave me flowers on friday and I haven’t stopped staring at them since. seriously though, they’ve opened so pretty! i couldn’t help but grab my camera and take a few shots of them today.

and in thinking about it, i actually don’t remember the last time i took my camera out for myself! so nice.

much love!

the tiredest

1-1i have a serious case of the tiredness tonight. its essentially going like this – computer opens… eyes shut. not the best case scenario but maybe just giving up and sleeping will be for the best!

much love, and luck to everyone else cluing up their work!

in an ideal sleepy-head world

BlogCaribou-1as a chronic, i cannot get out of bed pre 9:00, no matter how many alarms i set, unless its for something super interesting, therefore not for class, in most cases, even though i wake up and feel reallyreally bad it won’t ever change, again unless its for work or something, today is epic.

today is the last monday morning in which i can say on my way out the door “i have class.” realizing this is just as much a present as the rest of it.

frigging WICKED.

much love,

skona beach

Blog-1 Blog-4on the few hours break i had one day last week we ventured down to skona house, and while i didn’t get many photos i added a good handful to my beach glass collection. (so much cobalt blue! so worth it.)

guess who’s countdown has reached single digits?

much love,

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,

double exposure: photoshop edition

LR Double Exposure-1i’ve been curious for a while what it would be like to start doing manual double exposures, so on a fairly spur of the moment trip to st. john’s this weekend to see my sister i took advantage of the 8 hours travel time both ways and tried my hand at them.

i’ll admit i’m pretty much photoshop illiterate, so i edited both images in lightroom first and them imported them into photoshop, played with opacities, reimported the final images to lightroom and fixed minor details and clarity. thoughts? it still doesn’t touch film (duh, considering film is the best) but i think it might be interesting all the same.

hope everyone had a good weekend!

much love,

candace
