    every year, the company i work for does the California Coastal Cleanup. if you’re not involved in it, you really should try it out. it’s really fun and rewarding! work events are nice because they let me bring my camera to take pictures of everyone. its nice to document our accomplishments. there’s also been a small baby boom amongst the coworkers who i’m close to and since i love kids, i can’t resist taking pictures of them when we’re together!

    and unlike sal, i asked for permission before taking pictures of their kids and posting them.

    so cute

    isn’t this the most precious picture?? so much love. <3

    project #2: anything blue 

    makes me think of the beach. i love the beach…it’s such a relaxing place. i love the sound of the waves and the feel of the sun.

     there is one slightly bad thing at the beach. im always worried that they’ll take my food :(

    more pictures to come!

    i love flowers 

    So since Jenn suggested we start this blog, we decided that the best way to get started would be to pick a topic once a week and STICK TO IT (very important). i decided that flowers would be fun to shoot because 1. they stay pretty still and 2. i love flowers (yay for wedding season coming up!)

    Unfortunately, i didn’t have time to go out and find flowers to shoot so i had to stick with whatever i had in my house and backyard. In hindsight, i probably should’ve just gone to the garden center at my local Home Depot…they have a great selection of flowers!

    But enough with the text, onto some pictures!

    I’m glad that Jenn learned about F-stops on this project. i’m also slowly getting used to all the functions on my camera and hopefully we’ll both be eventually skilled enough to use everything. Most of my images above are unedited…can you tell which ones?
