|Working on my lens arsenal...reworking my tilt-shift and figuring out my kaleidolens|
|Some kind people asked me to take their photo and then offered to take ours...and the older lady kept referring to Evin as my husband :P|
|Self-timer on a bench took this one :D|
It's definitely a blah-Monday...the Monday morning after a loooong weekend, Evin finally had to go home and go to work, the weather outside is grey, I haven't backed up my files recently and I'm starting to run out of space again, and the editing I did on these photos annoys me but I don't much care to go back and re-do it. I need to learn how to edit properly, and I need to get rid of the Monday blues!
Anyway, it was a nice long weekend. Evin drove up after work Wednesday night and left this morning...it was definitely nice to be with him for more than just a two-day weekend! We spent our first Thanksgiving together, watched our Hokies shut out UVA for a trip to the ACC Championship, did a teeny bit of Christmas shopping, made turkey-and-dumplings that turned out to be like a big pot of gravy (not so great), took Finley on an adventure to a state park, and ate Thai food.
The above photos are from Thursday-Sunday, excluding Friday (because the only pictures I took that day were of Samantha and I've already posted those). The trippy, kaleidoscope photos are first attempts in my newest project...I bought a fisheye kaleidoscope at a toy store and am working on how to rig a way to use it without just holding the little refracting disc up to my lens. When I figure it out I will probably post a tutorial of some sort, per a request from Caiti on Facebook (if you haven't already Liked my page, please do!)
