A huge difference…

I’m not even sure what title to give this entry, but today I used my boyfriend’s family computer in the spare room to update my blog and I noticed that images look extremely different on their monitor than on mine… Is this the graphics card? Or maybe just a different contrast displayed on the monitor? I’m not […]

Well orientation was great! I woke up early but I didn’t get out of bed until 10:30am. Nate called and wanted to meet for lunch since his co-worker and boss are out of town this week. I hopped out of bed, got dressed, and headed out to meet him up in Ft. Eustis. We were […]

Where to locate my photographs has always been a huge debate of mine, so I’d like to voice my own opinion as well. Now before I begin, I’d like for you to understand that this entry is about finding a somewhat safe place […]

This morning my goal was to capture a shot of a beautiful cardinal. My journey began at Sandy Bottom Nature Park where I walked carefully through the park, eyes peeled for anything red amidst the brown and orange of the woodlands.

Sooo it appears that the 757 will be getting more snow. Ugh! Don’t get me wrong, I loved the last two weekends of snowfall but it’s starting to get annoying. I think I’m just worried that the photowalk will be snowed in. I don’t like driving around in the ice and slush so if it […]
