Little Rock

I have grown to love this city. In the two years I have lived here (officially this month), I appreciate it's beauty. It has everything you could want...well, at least, everything I could want. The other day, I took some pictures of the state's capitol. Here is one I like. Obviously this is not the original color. I can't figure out how to fix it so I just left it. It's kind of cool with the red sky.

beautiful day for the park

Today I was able to take a few pictures of one of my friend's kids (Brylane and Brecca). They were so adorable. These are just a few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy.

Picture this

So if you know me, you know that I love to take pictures. I think ever since I can remember I've been buying those disposable cameras at Walmart and developing them in the one hour photo place. In highschool I made friends with the guy who worked there. He started giving me a discount because I was a "loyal customer."

In college, an old boyfriend bought me my first digital camera. It wasn't great compared to all the cameras now but it was great then. I used it until I could shoot with it no longer. The lens was scratched, the buttons were broken. So it was time to save.

Being poor in college, it took me about a year to save for the camera I have now. But I finally bought it. My dream camera...well, not exactly but it is a beauty. I've had it for two years almost and I'm about to wear this one out, as well.

So, I did my first "official" photoshoot with actual PEOPLE. lol not animals, not flowers, not buildings but people. I don't know why but people scare me. I'd much rather taken still life pics. But flowers and buildings don't pay money. I hate to admit this, but the world does revolve around money.

My dream is to one day have my own business on the side of a family, a husband, and a career as a mom. I would love to be able to make beautiful portraits and capture awesome expressions and intimate moments on film...well, digitally. Anyway, if you need your picture taken...just hollar. I'm looking for takers.

the B.I.B.L.E. yes that's the book for me.

I've been inspired today to get back into the Word. Not just studying it to fufill some "quiet time" need, but to really study it...like the Word is my textbook in the class of Life because well, it IS. I majored in religious studies in college but I'm having a hard time remembering significant events in the Bible...kind of embarrassing if you ask me. It's awesome to me how other religions know their stuff so well. I only wish Christians took to studying our religion, our God, and our beliefs that passionately.

So here's to studying the only book that truly matters... Cheers.
