Disney pictures! Finally. OTL.


Narration and about 60 pictures under here. )

And that marks the first 2 days of Disney! I'll get the other pictures up another day. :)

Made it home last night around 8:30 pm because my stepdad drives like a psycho. Vacation was fun. I did a ton of things (only one big ride). Though sadly the last couple of days I was sick as a dog so I didn't get to go horseback riding. :( And because of being tired and overall fatigue plus my stepdad has to go back to work, we didn't go to Seaworld yesterday. Maybe another time we can.

I'm in recovery mode but I have to go back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have time to edit and post some more pictures. I took like 475 but quite a few are blurry since they're from inside rides with crappy lighting. I'll try to get a post done though in the next week. :)

I hope everyone has a good Easter. ♥

A handful of pictures from the zoo!

Sadly no lions, tigers, or bears. :( )

And that's all. I have a bunch more but I don't have time to edit and post them. Not sure if I'll update before we leave Friday. If I don't, I'll miss you guys! ♥

Long time no update. Just not much going on besides work and if you follow me on twitter, that's pretty much where most of my random everyday sort of updates go.

Anyway, went to New Orleans this Sunday with John and Ben despite the insane cold (which I love) Louisiana has been suffering with the last couple of weeks.

Random pictures beyond this cut. )


And that was the end of our journey. It was really nice to get out and go do something and just walk around the Quarter when it's not scorching hot. I miss just going do things but work and money permit me from engaging in more things. I miss taking pictures but feel so uninspired when I'm in these cities and places that I've been a hundred times over.

I really want to take a weekend off and drive out to Texas to visit somewhere. IDK it would be a change from the same Louisiana scenery. And to visit a new place would be nice. I miss taking going out and taking pictures but I'm just so bored with everything that's around here.

Maybe one day I'll get to go do something I really want to do. Just will have to keep saving and hope to all hell that nothing comes between me and that goal again. I'll try to update a bit more if anything interesting happens. ♥

Yesterday, I took some head shots of my friend Robert [livejournal.com profile] boberto518 for his portfolio. I've never done head shots before, but I think a good chunk of them came out really well. It was damn cold and windy though, so we suffered immensely while downtown. Lol.



None of the other ones behind the cut look like this. Lol.

Bigger + 7 more. )



These aren't the final edit cuts, just with minor adjustments to colour, sharpness, exposure, etc. I'll do the actual retouching later and finish going through the shots to find more of them to post or for the selection process.


It's been ages since my last photo post. It felt nice to go out and shoot despite the cold. It was a lot of fun. :D

Let me know what you guys think, critics, etc. I need it since I want to pursue fashion photography, but never actually get the chance to shoot people and I'm seriously awkward around people I don't know so much. Err, yeah. Stopping my rambling now. ♥


ETA: I finally gots the twitter bug - https://twitter.com/_photonerd - add me!

Happy Holidays!



Bigger plus one. )




I got my SX-70 Sonar OneStep in the mail Monday. These are the first couple of pictures I took with it. I also got my Boys in City calendar/photobook in the mail yesterday! It's so much prettier in person and so much bigger than I was expecting. Money well spent I'd say. XD

I got a couple of cards from [livejournal.com profile] kimberly_elf and [livejournal.com profile] madeleneg! Thank you lovelies.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday; I may post later if anything good happens. like opening up the new cell phone that I wrapped for myself lolol

We put up our Christmas tree Friday or more like mom put up the Christmas tree while I was out for the night. Heh.



Bigger + 4. )




It's been a long weekend. I'm worn and severely wish it was the end of the week already. I worked Friday, Saturday, this morning, and have to open again tomorrow (but my next two paychecks will be fabulous). Friday I went all the way home after work just to turn right back around to bring my brother to his friend's house. Since I was already around, I went meet John at BAM. We went eat Thai and Ben met us at the restaurant. The food was really good. I want to try their curry the next time I go though. Hobby Lobby for more holiday cards since I ran out (20+ and counting). I sent out the international ones today; they will be very late, my apologies. I need to go buy a couple of books of stamps but I haven't had time to run to the post office. Hopefully the rest will be out no later than Wednesday. They should still have enough time to make it to your mailboxes. XD

Mom and I went shopping yesterday and I came home with 3 dresses and two new pairs of shoes. Everything was on sale so we got 3 dresses (normally $60-70 each) for $40 each. And I got two pairs of patent leather shoes, one short wedge which is almost a flat and a heel. They are so freaking cute. (One and Two) Picture quality sucks. Sorry. If I manage to not look too fat I'll take pictures of my dresses too, but I guarantee nothing at this point.

I have no idea what to get mom for Christmas. :/ She keeps hinting at a massage so I may get her a gift certificate from work for one. I'm also going to tan a few times at work before the wedding so I don't blind anyone with my paleness.

I got cards in the mail! From [livejournal.com profile] hp5freak, [livejournal.com profile] torn_portfolio, and [livejournal.com profile] itsumademo_news. Michelle! The little Kyuhyun picture was brilliant! Thank you guys so much. I promise to send out cards soon. ;-;

Okay I'll end this post now as I have a crazy bird flying around my head. D: ♥

ZOO PICTURES. Finally.

These aren't edited properly because I just cannot be arsed to do it. D:


26 pictures from the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. )


Did anyone else ever read the Angus, Thongs, etc series? THEY MADE A MOVIE. OMG. I love it so much even if it is so teen drama-y and ridiculous. *is 12* It makes me miss London so bad. I truly fell in love with that city in 2004. *sigh* I want to go backkk. Also the gorgey English boys and accents and just lajg;lsjah;jah!

Finishing up Holiday cards today and will hopefully have them mailed by...Friday. They'll probably be late to everyone overseas. :(

I need to revamp my journal tags so badly. I have over 400 of them and 90% of those are only used like once. WTF. :/ Whether or not I actually end up doing that. I still don't know.

Almost had a dress for mom's wedding. She had a gorgeous strapless dress from Black&White that she never wore, but alas because of my ABNORMALLY LARGE RIBS I can't wear it. Is there some sort of rib removal surgery out there? I would gladly take it. Despite being ... not thin, I have a really small waist but it is stupidly offset by my GINORMOUS ribs. I'll take a picture one day. It's so off-putting. Ugh.

It might snow tonight. Well technically snow mixed with rain. I'll be sleeping but this idea excites me more than anyone around here. Hahah. It's going to be in the 40s tomorrow! Oh finally the cold weather is coming again. Love love.

Anyway, off to make lunch. ♥

Infrared images I shot at Tickfaw State Park last Sunday.

Just a few. )


OMG SHOES. I want these and these. Why are they so cute (and cheap!)? Oh Gmarket, why do you tempt me so? It's the things like this that make me want to dress nice and girly all the time Woe.

I opened the store this morning and I have to open again tomorrow. Unfortunately I won't be getting paid until next week. :/ We do get paid every week though instead of every other. which means I will still be constantly broke

Random: Some man just came in and offered me a fresh church made praline but I don't have any money on me. He bought it for me. OMG. That was so sweet.

Please text, comment, email spam me. I'm so bored. :( I hope my mom brings me some sushi for lunch. Mmmm. Getting back to work (ie surfing the internet). ♥

PS. Don't forget about my Holiday card post. ^^

What is this weather? It's fabulous. Sun shining, wind blowing, and a nice cool 66°F. Ah, I shall enjoy it while it lasts. I wish it was like this yesterday!

So yesterday, John, Ben, and I went to Hammond in search of a nice scenic environment to enjoy nature and yadda yadda. We ended up at Tickfaw State Park. The Nature Center is really nice, I will give it that and there are like 4 or so trails to choose from. Swamp, Hardwood, River, and something else that I can't remember. We accidentally passed up one of them, so we ended up at the Hardwood trail. It was .7 miles of a trail through the woods. The most nature we encountered were a few butterflies, some fungus, MOSQUITOES, and two giant grasshoppers (that I wanted to smush). It was hot unlike we thought it would be and just rather boring to be honest. Lol.

It's definitely nothing compared to Clark Creek (dial-up users beware), that's for sure. I wouldn't mind going back and going on the River trail when it's a bit cooler, so I don't get eaten by mosquitoes.

But I still took pictures, of course! )

That's all I have. I need to go wash clothes and shower. ♥

Just one.

Like a Ghost Town. )


Not spectacular, but that's what boredom and no electricity brings out.

Hopefully this weekend I can get some more infrared shots, if John, Ben, and I go do some nature photography. The weather is supposed to be amazing (40s at night), so I shall anticipate whatever ends up happening.



I created a community to archive my media uploads. You can find them all over at [livejournal.com profile] neukkim. I was getting annoyed with my list so I just made the community. I went through over 30 names that were already taken when I finally just decided on that. It's Korean (느낌) which basically means an impression. And if that's not correct then oh well. I looked it up numerous places to make sure. D:

Anyway, I'm going find something to do. ♥

I've been meaning to post this for a week now. :/

Three in one. )



In other news...

행복해!!!

My Super Show DVD came in the mail today! I went check the mail in anticipation but it hadn't passed yet and I tell you not two minutes later I looked out the window and saw them coming down the street. = =;; So I ran walked hurriedly to the mailbox to get it and yayayay! I haven't watched it yet since I'm putting bells together for the wedding, but jaljsg;ajg.

The spray tan went well. I couldn't get wet or sweat for 6-8 hours afterwards, which was difficult with the rehearsal dinner last night so I had to go looking a bit shabby. (Though I was still dressed better than some people...) And it's a lot more noticeable today than it was yesterday. Went to the doctor yesterday as well and got two shots, antibiotics, decongestants, and nose spray. I have acute sinusitis and seasonal allergies. It needs to go away, but I feel better already. I think I got a penicillin shot because my right hip is still sore but the other one isn't. Sob.

Also, ♥♥♥ to my flist. Honestly. You guys mean so much to me. Thank you.
