Sparkler Fun

Sometimes boredom can have its perks. Somedays you just have no idea what to do, and well today was one of those days. But i've learned that many times they turn out to be the most fun. A creative thought can literally spark up out of nowhere. I had seen photography with sparklers a few times and I always thought "Oh my gosh! That is so cool! How is that possible?! I want to do that!!" And so after finally convincing myself that these people did not possess magical powers and wands, I went out and bought some sparklers. My brother and I nearly spent 2 hours outside jumping and swishing around the sparklers, as if we had seriously never seen light before. 50 photos and 3 burns later, I had achieved the lit up masterpieces (muahaha). I had such a fun time experimenting with this project. I never knew I could do this until I tried. Sometimes we forget that other people didn't start out perfect, rather we only see their successes. We don't see all of the hard work that led them to where they are now. We need to be willing to try again and again.....and again, until we reach our goals. If you never try, how would you know what you are capable of? I posted a few of the photos....I think they came out pretty cool!! Dont'cha think? =)

Through My Eyes

I recently embarked on a road trip along the coast of California and the sights were unbelievable. We traveled along the Big Sur Coast and made our way to Yosemite National Park, and I was in awe of just how incredibly beautiful our world really is. Everywhere I turned I snapped and snapped photos and just could not seem to put my camera down. Everyone would be moving along on the tour, and here I was climbing on a rock to get the perfect shot of a waterfall yelling, "Wait! Wait! I gotta take this last shot!!" was like a child walking into a toy store for the first time. When you have the opportunity to travel, wherever it may be, do so. Take the time to look, smell, try different foods, and just explore. You will gain a new perspective on the world and of life itself. I posted a few photos from my trip....enjoy!!

A New Beginning

I never thought I would one day be able to do this. I've always wanted to write but never attempted at it. I am beginning a new page in my life and I'm not exactly sure where this will lead me, but I have decided to document my journey as I take a plunge into my passion: Photography. Fear is the one thing that stops many of us from going forward and from taking a chance. Today I will take mine.
