what did we photograph

two part post: inspiration & inspired.


cade martin is an absolutely incredible photographer. these four images here are of his photos of the washington ballet reinterpreting the nutcracker and peter pan (and perhaps other such stories) for his photographs. and they're amazing. i should say less so you can look at them more.

as i mentioned in the post below, i have restarted using my tumblr. and if you read the post below that one, you'll know i also just came back from LA. so that would be the two facts to know about me before you continue reading this post. and then it all makes sense.

i've lately been very fond of my dslr (canon xti 450D) and very happy to just pick it up at random and try to take a photo, even if this most often just takes place in my room...and the subject matter tends to be either typography, food or myself. i think i want to be good at photography and part of my brain is convinced that isn't where my talent lies. i'm aware of what i'm capable of and what i excel in and photography may be more of a hobby for me than something i can really push myself in.

all the same i am inspired.


what did we restart

is queued on tumblr for sometime the next two days.

so here i have pulled out all the stops of online social networking and public interaction.

i've restarted using my tumblr.

some percent
(though the url is titled the same as this blog - whatdidwe)

and it's nice, as i explained to dearskye (when i reference you, would you prefer me to link to your tumblr/blogspot/other location? - here it leads to your tumblr since we're on the subject already, heh) in a recent post - tumblr is simple and quick and i can queue posts endlessly to post endlessly while i go about my day (which is also a tiny bit eerie but mostly convenient and cool)

also. who doesn't love a good image? or a good reblogged image? or just somewhere to share what you look at and light up inside about or look at and immediately respond and have to tell someone even if it is just typing out what you're thinking into unanswering cyberspace.

as you have noticed. i have added here a seemingly random image. it adds interest to this large amount of text and is also slightly related in that it is queued on my tumblr as well.

edit// also the bunny makes me smile


what did we miss: LA

i recently returned from LA this past sunday evening and i still miss it.
partially, thanksgiving break was amazing simply because it was a break away from school, having to work, being on the computer, getting no sleep...stressing out...
but thanksgiving break was also amazing because i was in LA. and because of who i was in LA with.

it was great to get away from NYC. i love new york and i love manhattan still and i think i'm still a city girl - but i have to say that my three semesters at parsons in the city have worn away some of the love for new york. maybe it's just that right now in my life the city is associated with stress. and unending movement.

and LA is only associated with holiday. and good food. and sunny sunny warm weather. (and disneyland, go karting, more good food, dogs, video games, ben and his family...)

so yes. i miss LA and i mostly wish i wasn't here in NY right now. but that's okay. i believe it's alright for me to be in love with more than one city even if it does mean that my heart belongs in some way to four.

images my own - it was also nice to pull out the dslr
