I had my last day of photography class on Saturday…kind of sad! On the plus side I’ll get to sleep in on Saturdays again, instead of trekking to 46th street in the snow (not exaggerating, it rained or snowed EVERY SINGLE time we had class). While I do still have a TON to learn, I’m shooting pretty much exclusively in manual now which is an awesome improvement from where I started. I took the above picture of the 59th Street Bridge on Saturday on my way back from class, while it was, of course, snowing (eventually I did regain feeling in my fingers). When I’m not in the mood for frostbite, I’ve been practicing in my apartment.
Inslee Haynes makes the most incredibly gorgeous calendars. Each month is a different illustrated print that you can frame or hang up, and it’s a delightful surprise to change it and see what pretty picture is up next. I realized that the old years that I have of her calendars are too pretty to let languish inside my drawer, so I decided to re-use my oldest one. Above is January 2012, and look how pretty it is! And since it’s been a year since I’ve seen it, every month will still be a surprise (which is half the fun of this calendar). And do I care that the actual calendar part is not 2014? Nope.
