Last weekend Craig and I picked up sandwiches and headed up to Topsmead State Park for a walk and to enjoy the sunset. The last time we were up there, I drove my car through a good foot+ of mud and there was snow/ice mounds. Now the grass a luscious green, the plantings haven’t come in yet, but the trees were in full green leaves. We explored a section of the park we hadn’t been to. I can’t wait to go back with my bike, and ride this never ending road. There is a beautiful stone wall that runs the length of this road on either side. I loved the old trees. We headed back to the main house to enjoy the sunset from the back porch. There were people playing frisbee and families enjoying the grounds. As the sun […]
Several weeks back my photography friend’s, Shanna and Kelly, decided it had been too long since our last photography field class. Sadly enough, Shanna couldn’t make it today, but Kelly and I headed over to Harkness Memorial State Park to shoot photos. I went to college on this side of the state and discovered this park with Craig while driving around and exploring the area. Since that time I love to come over and visit. There’s a mansion on the property, gardens, a long stretch of lawn and ocean front. We decided to head over a little later and let the morning storm clouds pass. When we arrived it was sunny and a light breeze. Perfect for our photo walk. Craig kindly came along and allowed me to shoot photos of him. I am very happy with how the photos […]
I’m not sure what the internet etiquette is for piggybacking on ideas. Sometimes I feel like I’ve lived two lives, and when I read someone’s post it triggers that memory and then I want to share it. But I don’t want to seem like I’m always just saying, “oh yah I’ve done that too”. Even though that is basically what I’m doing. I think the root of the issue is me forgetting that I have all sorts of things to share from the insanely busy past 15 years of my life. Do you find yourself doing this as well? Is it considered “uncool” to post right away your own story? or am I just being worried for no reason?
I really enjoy HDR photography and I’m a sucker for clouds. So this video meets two of my loves. It is unquestionably beautiful.
This reminds of A-Ha’s Take On Me video.
Today is one of these days… I feel the same. (Illustration by Alex Noriega) (Via swissmiss.) I can definitely relate to this and have certainly felt this many a day.
This is one of several amazing pieces of photography via, Light Art Performance Photography’s website. Their work is beautiful and inspiring. I love long exposure photography. Please go visit their site to see all their incredible work. On a side note, I liked the music so much I bought it as well. It’s by James D. Stark, called “Ready” [iTunes link]. I found all of this via Colin Devroe’s post.
This video is a little late. Back in November we headed up to the White Mountains of New Hampshire for Thanksgiving. It also coincided with being 10 years to the day we got engaged while up there. This year, I ended up getting very sick after only one day up there and spent most of the trip attached to tissues, DayQuil/NyQuil and chapstick. Craig drove me around and I shot video. We first headed up the Kancamagus Highway out of Lincoln. Oh, I just remembered we also got to see the Venus, Jupiter and Moon alignment very clearly from up in the mountains. The next day we drove through Franconia Notch, where my parents used to vacation for 20 years. The area feels like a second home to me.
