i don't really know how this blog site is going to work. i'm working on it though. please give me some time to adjust.
i have been enjoying myself more lately. this break has been nice and refreshing.

a few nights ago i went to chris and joey's home

it was nice to get out and do something different. i met some new people too, which is always a good thing.

the next morning i went to get some skis at the sniagrab sale. i happened to pick up everything i needed. i'm so happy and, of course, can't wait for it to snow. it actually got pretty chilly last night too...so there might be some hope for it happening in the near future.

here is what i happened to pick up:
























i've been keeping pretty busy i'd say. i
went to the mall and got my computer fixed. things were messing up with my ipod. i got some applications while there also. last night i went to this thing called taste of colorado. it was nice to just walk around and spend time outside.

i've been doing some work lately for my classes. for one class i have to copy natural objects(which i took a picture of in the last post) and in the other i had to take 6 photos each of line, shape, value, contrast, and texture. it wasn't too horrible. i completed it in around 2 hours. i just walked around the neighborhood. here are some of my favorites.


















































that is only a few of the numerous ones i have taken. she gave me a good grade on them.

then for color theory:
the whole project:

















my favorite ye far:























so yes things are going well. i'm enjoying my work though at times it can definitely feel tedious, it usually feels rewarding.

i'm going wander the neighborhood.

oh yeah, check out this quote i found....use it...for everything.
If you're just doing things in the moment and not reflecting on how you could do them better, it's very unlikely you'll improve. The takeaway: Focus on technique, even during playtime. Mindless participation is not enough.
Knowing you're doing something wrong isn't the same as doing it right. Once you've isolated problem areas, think about how you can avoid repeating mistakes. Performance gains come by recognizing flaws you'd like to pretend don't exist.

I love your snapshots. I think that they're very striking. You're a great photographer. I also like the paintings for your Color Theory class. Beautiful. And the skiis look excellent, I'm sure that you'll have a lot of fun with them. I've been thinking a lot about you today (it's Sept. 4th). I'm confident that you're having a spectacular day. I can't wait to talk to you... Lauren
