Berkeley Kite Festival

Today was Berkeley's annual kite festival. Somehow I've managed to miss it all these years, so I was determined to go at least once!

What I learned today:
1) wear walking shoes (especially if the bus goes to the "other" last stop and the buses decide to stop running by the time you want to get back)
2) bring a hat (I should have expected the wind, which made a mess out of my hair)
3) have something to do while waiting for the bus

Sorry for the obscenely long post! :(

Debt: 38, maybe these long posts aren't that bad after all... :P

Challenge from July 12

Yeah, so I finally have a picture that would be considered "Stat!" related.

To be honest, this has been like a nagging reminder in the back of my mind for a while. I know it took me so long to post a picture for it, but I was going through different ideas as to how to capture it (which I was unable to do, because I had set up high hopes of an action shot with blurred ambulance lights), but this one turned out to, what I thought, represent the theme the best out of the pictures I had taken.

Also, I'm not going to count contest/challenge pictures as part of the three pictures a day.

Street Festival

Today, I felt like taking the bus down College, since I don't go down past southside of campus too much. On my way to the bus stop, I noticed the street festival going on, and so, change of plans! :P

I hadn't been to one in a while, so it was a nice change, plus a great photo opportunity!

Anyways, here are the pictures from today:

Finding Tranquility

... if that's even possible. -____-

It's been hectic lately with things that need to get done, so taking photos has been on the back-burner, so to speak. Here are the few that I've taken recently.

New Look!

I'd been meaning to change the layout and whatnot for this blog for the longest time... well, I finally got around to it! Yay!

Now, I just need to figure out how to change the background so it's a picture I took and not one of the already provided images. Hmmmm...

And yes, I'm aware that I haven't been posting for a long time.

Strips of Creativity

Contact sheets... ah, it brings back memories of dark room photography. :)

So I found this page where one person has come up with some of the most creative ways to utilize contact sheets and printing them.

I think out of all the contact sheets, this is my favorite!

I wish I had this kind of out of the box type of thinking!

Lack of Pride

Okay, yes, I've slacked off again with the three-pictures-a-day project. And I'm not too proud of it either. Well, to make up for it, here are some of the pictures I took over the last few days. Hopefully my debt isn't too horrible... once again :(

Small Walk Around

Today I had quite a bit of errands to run and ended up walking quite a bit. (And on top of that, I went out for my separate walk before dinner, so definitely a ton of walking!)

So, here's a giant load of nature shots I took just today. And yes, some of them aren't that great, I admit. But it's the effort that counts? Or I guess not. :(
