I have finally polished up the No Red Flags article and that will be off to the editors soon. Once I strapped myself down and forced myself to write, it was easy. I also spent more time getting to know the brothers better which helped fuel the integrity of the article. I was reminded of Billy Crudup in Almost Famous during many nights of this journey. It was a lot of fun, but I think I am going to stick to shooting photos from now on.
The new camera is amazing and I am finally finding the time to learn more about all of the technology built into these powerful DSLR’s. My first day in my new apartment proved a great time to play with lighting and settings. This is where I plan on shooting most of the subjects for the new website. It has high ceilings, beautiful wood floors, and plenty of charm. It was built in 1913 and has layers upon layers of history.
Now that I am settled in I am getting everything set up for Kya’s visit in a few weeks. I plan on letting her use my old camera and taking her on urban safaris around town and a short trip to the coast. She is a great photographer and enjoys getting outside with me. Last summer she spent three hours at the Chinese Garden shooting the various types of plants and decor. I love to watch her approach a subject and get absorbed in the creative process. She is the happiness behind my smile.
