I’m going to make an effort to post here more regularly, and give it more personality than just a sort of portfolio site. That’s what a blog is for, right??
So here is an update!
I’m super thrilled that my little urban garden is exploding with life! This time last year, I tried growing all sorts of things from seed but all my sprouts withered away due a big infestation combined with hard water. So far this year there are no bugs (except for a stray caterpillar) which means I have 9 very healthy plants! Most of the herbs are not exactly for cooking use, but I use them to fuel my tea obsession.
Stevia, spearmint, and lemon balm. I love the way those three smell together, and I’m excited to re-introduce a natural sweetener to my tea (since I’ve been drinking it straight for a while now).
The weather has been incredibly rainy and overcast so it’s putting a literal damper on my craving for sun and natural light, but hopefully blue skies will return! Once it does, I will get out there with my camera.
I have been in a rut because of personal things, but some good news is that I purchased a small point-and-shoot camera recently, which is helping me reintroduce casual snapshots into my routine.
In other news, I am counting down the days until I leave the country and head to Europe!
I’ll get some images up here sometime soon. I’m just trying to get my head back in the game with school and such.
I ordered business cards for the first time today, I used minted.com and I found a template that I think suits what I want to do with my overall work. I mainly got them for the art market, but if I like them, I’m positive I’ll order more.
The art market is something the department is doing in my college. Every concentration of artists, from painters to sculptors, photographers to printmakers, will put on a huge “craft fair” type deal where we all will try to sell little prints and buttons and whatnot. I am extremely excited about this, and I’m already sorting through images. The market is set for December, but it’s never too late to start.
I’m confident in my photo work lately, although I am delving into subjects that are proving to be more difficult to grasp than I recall. I’m not giving up, however, because that is no way to progress. I am relieved, however, that the class I was most worried about is proving to be the most useful course in my college career thus far.
