Snow!

So yesterday due to the snow storm, my evening class was canceled. I decided to be productive, I did housework and studied for my MTEL. When my husband called to say he had to catch a later train, I even broke out my camera. The good people of my town probably thought I was crazy, I got some really neat pictures. I love watching the snow fall and gather on tree branches, so I have an excess of snowy tree pictures, but I also tried to expand my horizons and shoot some creative, new pictures. The pictures follow, I hope people enjoy them.











Okay enough branches, here is some other pictures I took around the town.





As you can see I am trying to learn more about negative space. It is a technique I need to improve on, but I really like how these pictures turned out.







And finally a picture I like to call "Soviet Russia Self-Portrait"

Enjoy! This Friday hubby and I are going to New York to visit with my parents. I am hoping to get some good city photos to share with you all. Have a lovely day!

Photo Friday: Black and White

I love my camera. I just wish I could motivate myself to use it more. This week I took in to my graduate school with me and took some really nice shots before and after class. One of my favorite things about my camera is that I can change the setting and shoot in Black and White or Sepia. These are a few of my favorite black and white shots I took this week. Enjoy!

Good Luck Cat:
This little guy usually sits on my desk, collecting coins. I took this picture to kind of mentally prep myself. I want better luck this month, in everything I do. I had a really good interview and I am keeping my fingers crossed. The next two pictures of some cool looking trees on campus, both taken in black and white

























The next shot is of an old house that I pass by on my way to campus. I tried to snap a real quick picture (while stuck in traffic), sadly the light post got in the way but I still like the look of this picture.














The final picture is my attempt at night photography, something I really want to improve on.















Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
Peace,
Becca

Internet Fun

So I am sitting hear, listening to my professor go on and on about 21st Technologies. Technology means the internet...right? So I am surfing the internet, looking for fun stuff to share with my one follower. Hi Jo!

Some fun shirts:

Ah Battlestar Galactica I need to watch you more. I love this show but it requires your full attention for an hour. It is a good show, with interesting plots, a wonderful/educated casts, and the show always leaves one guessing. I now present the only team anyone shirt I would ever wear:

I love it!

A really cool scarf:

One of my favorite webcomics: http://leasticoulddo.com/comic/20070811

It is basically about a man who loves women, comics, BSG, Red Bull, nerdy things, and his friends. It is a bit NSFW at times but basically very funny all around.

Awesome poster: 'demotivational

And I am done goofing off...
Enjoy,
