Dreaming of Nightmares


From the RV Park series, I wanted to play around with my angles and this shot was stunning and erie so its a “must share” type of photograph.

Fire of Helios


From a series of photographs I took while visiting a friend in an RV park, the sky was actually very blue but for some reason my digital camera picked up a lot more orange than there was, but I loved the effect it had.

Written in the Cards

First prop shoot I’ve done (from last year) my personal meditation journal that I ought to use more often, my purple saree, silk roses, and my art art nouveau tarot deck.

Dreams


One of my dreams for my amateur photography hobby was to catch one of my favorite creatures in perfect stillness but butterflies don’t stay still for long. I was visiting the zoo with a friend when this one fluttered by and landed on the flowers and spread her wings just long enough for me to get a single picture.

A Day at the Beach


A couple of images taken on a weekend trip to Galveston, TX. These are a few pleasant memories from a relationship that soon fell apart. We had started a fashion blog where both of us were supposed to write and I was to be the editor. She never allowed any of my topics to be posted, and she refused to take my edits into consideration. After refusing the edits from the first few posts she then decided it was my duty to her to sit at my desk all day and wait for her to send me a rough draft of the next post and then within an hour of her sending it have it edited and sent back, at the time I was finishing college and searching for a job to start after graduation and did not have the free time to sit around and wait on her for an unpaid gig. Because of this she decided our friendship beyond our partnership even wasn’t salvageable. It was due to her actions that I started my own blog (many posts have now been moved over to my blog Glitter Kisses!).  My very first post there about 1950s pinup fashion and cosmetics gained me two paid jobs as an SEO article writer/editor.

Out for a Walk

These pictures were taken when the small nature park up the street from my parents’s house used to have more nature and was safe from crime. The park is no longer a place one would want to visit as there are druggie filled apartments surrounding it now. Makes me sad that such a beautiful little spot was taken over in such a way.

Vintage Roses

 

I captured some timeless roses just after a rain, these flowers were in the “mall” area of Sam Houston State University’s campus.  I later edited them by dulling the colors and adding a faded black and white filter over them to produce a vintage feel.

120/365

A friend’s brother started a group on Facebook called 120/365. The idea behind this group is to get everyone to sketch for at least 2 minutes a day every day (I’ve failed to do so everyday as my artistic interests and inspirations change on a daily basis between writing, jewelry making, pixel art, and doodling). Here are my sketches thus far.

My first few days of joining the group I didn’t have paper or pencil with me so I submitted 2 minute pixel images instead.
