This fall I will be...
Borrowed from a friend of a friend - I saw this list on her blog and it inspired to me to write a rare non-photographic blog post:
this fall I will be…
Making : a baby afghan for M&L's baby - I can't wait until she or he is here!
Cooking : healthier food - maybe finally using that slow cooker, hopefully?
Drinking : apple cider - my favorite fall drink
Reading : books on my to-read list
Wanting : a new camera (either the latest Canon Rebel or 6D) - suggestions anyone?
Looking : at pictures that inspire me
Playing : the piano occasionally or board games hopefully
Wasting : time sitting and staring off into space (every once in awhile is healthy!)
Sewing : see "Making"
Wishing : for fall to last forever
Enjoying : any day off I get - they are going to be a rarity this fall.
Waiting : for Baby R!
Wondering : if I'll have a photo project in 2014 - what shall I do?
Loving : the crisp cool weather that is fall in St. Louis
Hoping : to work on my upcoming photography website in my spare time
Marveling : at the fall leaves
Writing : more blog posts, hopefully
Baking : cookies! I didn't do it last year so I should this year. Sugar cookies are my holiday trademark
Needing : to learn more about how to use Lightroom. I must be using about 15% of its capabilities
Smelling : fall air and fallen leaves
Wearing : sweaters and long-sleeves
Following: more St. Louis blogs - to learn more about where I live!
Noticing : Everyone's fabulous fall boots
Knowing : that someday I will learn that some problems can't be solved
Thinking : about where my next vacation will be
Feeling : peaceful
Bookmarking : wonderful reference articles at the Digital Photography School or recipes I want to make
Opening : the season at work - 13 shows (countless performances) between now and May! Plus about 7-10 others not included
in the official season referenced before.
Giggling : at Pippin's silly antics. This 10 year old is forever a puppy and I wouldn't have her any other way.
Practicing : how to calculate aperture and shutter speeds without too much thought
Well, you can see I'm planning on being camera-focused this year. I think I'm finally taking my photography more seriously. I have had more photographers (professional, semi-professionals and amateurs) compliment my work and encourage me to keep photographing.
Thanks for reading! When flickr stops being a pain, I'll have a photo post ready!
