a railroader for me

   i've been having so much fun exploring new ideas with my new camera. always taking pictures everywhere i go, trying out new locations/angles, and being on the lookout for possible photo-taking opts are always on my mind. my best friend (whom i have featured many times on my blog) has been wanting me to do a photo-shoot of her for the longest time. today, we went to the west bottoms (yes, it seems i have been there a lot lately!) where there are so many great and abandon places for photographing. i managed to get some amazing shots of her before the sun went down, and they are featured on my facebook album, here. her style is very 90's grunge, and much more edgy than mine, so i feel as though i managed to capture the true "look" of her style. which can be extremely hard when the other person's style is opposite! i am developing more and more of an interest to photography everyday. 
   after our "photo-shoot", we ate medaterranean food at jerusalem cafe for dinner. ordering way too much hummus and falafel, we decided to call it a night. this is the last week of my internship at the elementary school i am at, i must say i will miss it! (even though i had to get up in the early hours of the morning and have a thirty minute drive to the school!). it has been making me so ready to start student teaching with a class of my own. but, now i can focus more on my last couple of weeks of classes and the dreaded... finals. eek! 
    readers, where is your favorite place to take photographs?

  12. oooh, i especially love the shots with the railroad. i would love to take pictures at a railroad sometime, thanks to your inspiration :)

  13. I love the location and you and your new camera produce total gems. Also this dress is beautiful and your friend has such pretty hair.

  14. I got a new camera a few months ago too. It is so fun to play with. It allows me to see the world in a new way and notice little details in my everyday life that I never paid attention to before. So fun to capture these things.

  15. these pictures are awesome, and i like her grungy style. you really do take fun angles and shots, like the one of her flipping her hair.

    i had a lot of fun taking pictures when i still lived in downtown chicago, but now i'm back in the suburbs and it's so dull. i suppose i could take pictures in front of mailboxes and SUVs :(
