Wow, New York was alot of fun. I love how there where so many different people there, unlike the small town I currently reside in… x_x

I really loved it alot. We toured Ellis Island, were promptly abandoned by our ferry boat, and visited Battery Park before touring the actual city. We saw The Little Mermaid on Broadway, it was an excellent show and my first time seeing a real Broadway performance. It was amazing, like no thing I’d ever seen before. I really can’t wait to go back to see more shows.

5 interesting things to photograph March 26, 2008

If you’re at all like me, you take your camera everywhere. But sometimes when I want to start a new project, I have no ideas. Recently, I was addicted to snapping pictures of all my meals. Then for a while it was teapots, and now it seems to be self portraits. Any photographer will tell you that some days are better for picture taking than others. But unfortunatly, even the best photographer will have an off day when they can’t think of anything to snap. With this list you won’t have to worry about finding an interesting topic on even your worst photo days.

  1. Food Even the most artistic photographer has to eat sometimes. Alot of times you have to act quickly when photographing food because in a matter of minutes your beautiful fresh entree could start to look like a big mess. (Note: It really helps to turn on Macro mode for food pictures.)
  2. Fireworks During the summer months, you are sure to see some fireworks sooner or later. However, it can be difficult. Remember to bring a tripod, extra memory cards, and a good location. Even though the thought of photographing a subject that constantly moves and disappears in daunting, it can also be well worth it when you see your beautiful pictures.
  3. Children Little kids can be the perfect subjects. If you have children or younger siblings, take them out to the park on a sunny day. Let them run around there for a while. Trust me, children at their happiest is one of the best things to witness. And being able to captue that moment forever is priceless.
  4. Pets Think about your pets. Do you love them? Do you wish you could let others understand how you feel about them? Spend the day photographing them doing what animals do. Running in a forest, making a mess, or just being cute. Whatever they do, make sure you have your camera ready.
  5. Your Breakfast Believe it or not, your breakfast can say alot about you. There are flickr groups that are all about breakfast pictures. Plus, this one is really easy. All you have to do is snap a picture before you start to eat every morning. It’s pretty easy and will work for lunch or dinner also. (Go ahead, go wild and snap all your meals)

Basically, you can photograph anything you want. When you’re feeling low on creative power, just look around you. Almost anything you see will make for an intresting picture. Just remember to be creative, use good lighting, and always have your camera with you.

Free Rice; Learn New Words; Help Feed The Hungry

Word of the week- Mezzanine

No idea what that word means? Visit Free Rice . By playing a simple (or in this case not so simple) word game, you can donate an unlimited amount of rice to feed the hungry. This nonprofit site will donate 20 grains of rice per word to people who other wise would not have anything to eat. Think about it. Every time you click in the game, you’ll be feeding a family. In one game you can easily donate 4 bowls of rice. You’ll be saving lives. You’ll be learning new words and making a difference. Just try it, it’s a charming game with a good message. So go ahead, use your massive knowledge to raise rice and become the humanitarian you’ve always wanted to be.

I’m gonna be sad to go home today. (it was just an overnight trip) But I’ll see them again soon when they fly up here in Febuary. So it’s all good. =]

That sounds good for me. I always seem to be flirting with a potential eating disorder.
