If you follow me over on twitter and have scrolled through my most recent bout of tweets, you probably can guess by now that I’m a little…lost. Not in that existential way but more in that “what the hell do I write about?!” kind of way.

I have SO much I want to chat about but am lacking on where to start, or even if these things are relevant for the blog at all. So rather than let this turn into two freaking weeks without an update, I am doing a “photo dump” of sorts (might do this from time to time–would y’all like that?). Posting a few of randoms from the last few years with tiny explanations behind each image. And that’s that!

Simple and to the point. 🙂 Be sure to leave me some love and/or links to your own favorites–I’d love to see!


Here’s my lil love wearing the best stockings EVER: The Universe. And Space ANYTHING is basically the best, so this is an example of what a win-win looks like. This image was from Fall of 2014 and I love how simple and relaxing the atmosphere within feels–she’s enjoying herself and we know this all without seeing her beautiful face! Plus I’m full-on lusting for Autumn right now so, it felt appropriate to put here.

This was from July 4th weekend, 2014. We are pretty big patriots (despite THE most embarrassing ongoing campaign as of current) and so I pulled out the big Red, White and Blue flag, had Bella run around the field behind our home for a while and bam, magic happened. I tried not to let the cloth touch the ground and it doesn’t here in this image, so success.

Ahh, photography student projects, the good ol’ expensive days! That’s about the long and the short of it with this one–a pre-Christmas break assignment that had to show movement and color, and like I usually do things, I did it my own way. This was fun and while it’s not perfect, I didn’t aim for it to be that way. The chaos is my favorite, I think. As a writer I try to thrust as much chaos into my fictions as possible so it stands to reason I’d do the same for my photography, right? grin

Another from that romp-around in the leaf pile from Autumn 2014 with Bella. Gorgeous, lush sunlight and a happy girl tossing leaves into the sky, what more could I ever want? <3

Double exposures are a PASSION of mine. I haven’t perfected it (straight up FAILED at this during a wedding a while back) and it pains me not to be shooting every second of every day trying to nail it from here on out. This one features A, hazy backlight and a tall tree (so descriptive, I know). I love how it turned out. Annnnd it’s now time for me to stop blogging and grab my camera, mmkay.

OH MY SASS. This is imperfectly perfect and I adore it. I’ve adored it since I snapped it when she was only three and a half years old. It was nearing December and we visited a local farm and she just…did her thing. And so I did mine. The little orb of sunlight (flare) is one of my favorite elements, and the shadowy feel to it–sighhhh. Bella just knows how to steal the shot every single time!

“But first, lemme take a selfie!” Forgive me, I had to. Yes, I DO take typical selfies and yes I do try my hand at pure vanity here and there but usually if I’m out and about, I find the best light and a reflective surface that leaves me appearing mysterious and less of the subject than the actual physical location itself. This was taken in downtown Philadelphia, by an old building (I’m so descriptive, someone should stop me now). That LIGHT though.

Ahh, Batman. My second favorite after Superman. Well, Luke Skywalker is my ultimate, too, and as he and Supes are tied for #1, B-man brings it up in the constant sought-after spot of second place. Which isn’t a bad way to be. This is painted on a garage door and what I love about it most, outside of the fact that it’s Batman on a garage door, is that it’s 1989 logo Batman. Ala Tim Burton/Michael Keaton. Which, before Christian Bale stormed into my life wearing the cape and cowl and stole my Gotham-girl heart, was my #1 version of Bats. The mosaic tile around it is also quote lovely–I’m not a huge fan of Philadelphia by NO means (murder rate is insane, it’s filthy and unsafe, more terrible neighborhoods than good ones, etc.) but no other city does art like Philly does art. Those are facts, people. Try as I might, I do love that about my hometown and this is an example of it, pure and simple.

So there you have it: a random mess of images from all over with a teeny bit of story tied into them. I promise more weighty blogs will return as soon as I can figure out what the hell to write! Guh! Maybe I’ll write on that, mwahah. <3
