My 365 is done! I can say, in all seriousness, this year has flown by. It honestly doesn't feel like this thing should be over. It has been a great year and I'm so glad I was able to share it with so many people through my photos. I have grown so much not just in terms of photography, but as a person. This project has taught me to see the beauty in all things and I think that alone has made me a better person in this past year. Not all of my photos have been incredibly creative but they're a glimpse into my life, on that day, and that's what this project was all about. I am so grateful for every single person that's supported me throughout this thing. That includes people that looked at my blog everyday and the people that may have only looked once. I have gotten so many supportive words and comments and it's because of them that I picked up my camera every. single. day. to get at least one shot. I love you all. :)

Obviously, I'm not going to stop. I get new inspiration every day and photography is now just a part of me and who I am. Although, I will most likely be posting them to my Flickr page so check them out there!Thank you again and I wish everyone good health and prosperity in the New Year! 

The End.

As long as sunlight lights the sky
Light of love will be found in these eyes of mine 
And I will shine that light for you
You're the only one, I'll ever give this heart to

(That's right. I just quoted an Nsync song. It had to happen sometime.)

I'm gonna leave my body, moving up to higher ground
I'm gonna lose my mind, my history keeps pulling me down

I love my Lensbaby. Look at that dreamy blur. Love it. This is completely straight out of the camera besides a small crop. Oh, and I love my puppy too. :)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a blessed holiday. I had a nice relaxing day filled with food, drinks, family, and friends. It was wonderful. :)

This is my very last self portrait Sunday. This is crazy. Not much of a self portrait. Maybe I'll make it up sometime this week. :) 

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight.

I can't believe it's Christmas Eve. This season went by so quickly. I'm just glad my days of having to be at work at 6:30am are over. I've barely seen any sunlight the last 10 days. Now, I'm excited to wrap presents with my love and a glass of wine. :)

Geez, I love macro. I edited this when I was very tired and I'm not completely happy with it but here it is. I'm too sleepy now to fix it. :)

Happy Christmas from Lupin!!

Obviously he really loves life in this photo.

Last day of fall. I'm not ready for winter and the wind and rain and cold it brings. 

Last leaves of Autumn.

And I had a dream about my old school
and she was there all pink and gold and glittering
I threw my arms around her legs.
Came to weeping.

The Dexter finale is tonight! :D I am SO excited to see what happens! 

I figured since I did a Dexter-inspired photo for the premier, I would do one for the finale. I edited this very quickly and I'm not completely happy with it but I am too tired to edit any more of it. Instead I am going to cuddle with my puppy and wait for Tomas to come home so we can watch! :D

"When women pose thoughtfully and artistically- in nothing but their bare skin- they find themselves. They discover that they are truly alive." 

I saw this quote a couple of days ago (I forgot who it's by) and I thought it was beautiful. I read a lot (a lot) of photography forums everyday and there has been a lot of debate on what is considered art and what is considered porn and I think that this quote sort of goes along with it. Just something that's been on my mind lately. :) 

I'd like to add that it is strange looking at your own back straight on. My back isn't as graceful and elegant as I thought it was. I wanted to make it smooth and take out the moles and scars but I left them. :)

Just a tree. It sucks that now that school is over, the crazy holiday hours begin at work.

My last final was this morning! I'm so happy. Even though I'm really only free for about a month. Oh well. My free time will now be spent on working on the end of this project.

This photo thoroughly shows how I feel today. And I die for this light. So perfect. I also just realized that I am wearing the exact same cardigan and boots as in this photo when spring semester ended. I'm so cool.

This is an extension from this image. I decided to just hurry up and post it because editing and studying at the same time doesn't quite work. So I'm going back to studying now. :)

Fallen Portrait.

He finds it more exciting to drink out of the cup we use to water the tree compared to his own bowl. At least he's a Raider's fan. ;)

This is inspired by last night's lunar eclipse. It's so cool to just sit and watch it as the shadow passes over the moon. I wish I had a longer lens so I could capture it. I am so inspired and intrigued by the moon and space and stars (if that wasn't already apparent). I think this concludes my moon photo series. I do love them though. 

Goodnight moon. Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere.

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning

I kind of love him. It's so nice of him to stand out in the freezing cold so I can take a picture of us.

See what I mean about the bokeh? ;)

Thursday, December 8, 2011


Christmas bokeh is one of my favorite things. In fact, bokeh in general is one of my favorite things, Christmas time just happens to have a lot of it. I'll try not to spam everyone's RSS feed with it. ;)

OH! and if you look reeeeeaaallly closely in that ornament you can see me! Then if you look a little to the left of me you can see my dog and his ginormous ears. He looks like a Christmas reindeer!

We decorated our tree tonight! I've had this idea in my head since I wrapped my dog in Christmas lights.

This was inspired by a screensaver on Tomas' Kindle. And my recent obsession with film.

Sunday, December 4, 2011


I have been having really long days lately. I'm always tired, always doing homework, always doing something. I am in need of a break from life. From everything.

On a good note, I had a good eyelash day today. :D

Nature is so pretty to me. I wish I had more time to go out and enjoy it. These things looked like little sea anemones. 

P.S. Click the photo and view it in the lightbox. The colors really pop!
