mini trip: columbia, missouri part 1

   I said hello to Columbia,  Missouri this summer weekend. One of my best friends resides there now for her college days, and I owed her a visit.. and leaving town for a short while sounded nice as well. I love the short trips I take; stop a many times as you please on the way, never spending too much money, and always semi-knowing where you are going (which can also be a good thing not to, but sometimes it is nice). 

   The downtown area in Columbia is so full of little vintage stores, local eateries, and costume shops that I ended up wanting to spend most of one day there exploring... and quite the "college" nightlife. If you live close enough for a couple hour drive, I would suggest a day trip should be in order. 
(Part two of my photographs from my mini-trip will be posted shortly.)

  5. i got your comment on how i edit my photos and i wanted to answer it! i use photoshop, and if you have that I usually go into curves and drag the mid-point of the curve a little down, and then add a "fill layer" ontop of the photo, make the color a grey or a muave, and set the opacity to about 7%. and then sometimes I like to go into images>adjustments>exposure and play with the levels. it makes it look kind of vintagey and grainy that way :)
