i heart faces :: boys

First of all, excuse my absence (a month, ack!).  I hope to start posting on this blog more often now.

 "Let's Hear It for the Boys" is the current I Heart Faces challenge and I couldn't help but remember this darling shot I captured of my dad and little brother yesterday while opening Father's Day gifts.  Perfectly imperfect, anyone?

more lovelies here.  thank you for stopping by!

little things

"The best things in life are nearest; breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."
–Robert Louis Stevenson


pictures like this make me happy.  i love the little things in life.  and capturing them.

 i live for light like this.  and the bokeh.  gorgeous.

 i know when i posted way back when (*blushes*) i mentioned a certain camera-related birthday present.  though i've already told those who read my main blog about it, it seemed rude not to mention it here like i'd said i would.  it's...adobe lightroom 3!  and i absolutely love it.  picnik, i'm so happy to say i won't be editing with you any more.  (all photos shown here have been edited with lr.)

and many of you have asked me "what on earth happened to Project Me?!"  don't worry, i'm still taking self portraits.  as soon as i get the chance i will put together a few posts with favorites from february up to the present and update my flickr set.  thank you for being patient!

i'm off traveling this weekend/week, and i'm quite excited.  stay tuned for some more photos, friends!

have a lovely day!

i heart faces :: pet week

We were at a lovely little Easter event yesterday, and let's just say Stephen totally adored the chicks and bunnies.  Yeah, just a little bit sweet.

Hope you all had a beautiful Easter!  In my case, today was a celebration of my birthday as much fun!! (Like, two of my favorite days of the year combined?  Pretty much.)  Currently, I'm longing to try out a certain camera-related-lovely-item that I've received.  Eeeeep!

In the mean time, I'm linking up to I Heart Faces' Pet photo challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by--I love getting the chance to return your sweet comments and "meeting" y'all!

with love,

flag football : cj

IMG_3303 EDT
(Before I go on, I'm super-sorry about my absense over the past couple of weeks...and thankful to all of you for sticking with me.  Keep checking for more photos comin' soon - I have so many to share.  Eep!  And never mind the fact that my header still says "February" on it.  Ahem.  Should be changed soon.)

My brother CJ's very last flag football game of the season was a little over a week ago.  Like, the championship, y'all.  They played valiantly, really they did.  And...lost.  But, seriously, second place in the league is underrated, right?  These guys are still awesome. ;-)

I realized that I hadn't photographed a single game this season (what got into me?) so I totally had to tote my camera bag along and brave the fifty-degree, earlish-morning temps to get a few shots.  (Seriously, it felt, I was wearing a scarf.)  Here are some faves...

Okay, so see that lady with the totally awesome telephoto lens?  Little-miss-had-to-use-her-kit-lens-me was kinda jealous.

Stephen, you're cute.  Just thought I'd mention it.

I found myself obsessing over landscape shots...both this and the one a few photos about were shot at 18mm, I believe.  Happiness. ;-)

And, after the game...*sniff*
Taken any action-like shots lately?
