Music Midtown Day 1

I was a little nervous to bring my new camera to Day 1, so I only have instagrams.  (was a little ERGH later when I saw all the pro cameras around when the tickets CLEARLY said they wouldn't be allowed.)

Joan Jett KILLED it!

Philladelphia Museum of Art pt. 2

Here are a few of my favorites and also this guy, who I totally snuck up on...

The True Artist Helps The World By Revealing Mystic Truths.

Philadelphia Museum of Art (and the Rocky Steps!)

Didn't realize it had been so long since my last post... 
Anyway, last month I went on a little road trip... first stop: New Jersey with a little field trip into Philly! First stop in Philly- the Museum of Art/Rocky Steps!  I love love LOVED this building and all the little details...

ah, the first macros of spring

I didn't think I'd want to do any more macro flower photos, but I shot some today.  The daffodils in our back yard started blooming yesterday.  And I suppose since I started my macro stuff last summer, I didn't get a chance to photograph any of the spring flowers.  So maybe I'll shoot a little more until I come to the flowers I've already macro-ed...

This batch is the first edit of what I shot.  The more I look at them, the more I'll probably edit out.  A few are pretty similar... but for now, these are my favorites.

Happy First Day of Spring!

PS: no heavy Photoshop here, just some minor levels and color adjustments... (the only exception is the last image, which was pretty underexposed, so I played a bit with it.  I kinda like how it came out)

stick figure portrait

Last night I painted a teeny portrait of my nieces.  Stick figure style.
The teeny canvas is 3x3 inches.  The orange is for scale.  :)
I dig these little canvases.  I might go grab some more...
