picture perfect day

so a couple of weeks back we set up a date at piedmont park with the ivey’s. ronda & i wanted some practice with our cameras & it was a beautiful day. i have so enjoyed getting to use my camera more & ever since i ordered my new lens i am even more obsessed. i have light-room now & it is really fun learning and putting your stamp on a photo. i particularly love close ups so my new lens is perfect for that. for those of you who are interested i used this one.  it was a picture perfect day- sunny- good company & laughter.

here are some of the photos.

The Bar & some Black & Whites

for cory’s 30th birthday i wanted to get him something awesome. so i threw him a “stock the bar” party & had our dear friend make him a bar for our home. it was an awesome turn out & we are still so in love with our bar.

yesterday i stayed home and decided to organize the house= going through things i do not need anymore- getting more things to sale for another haiti yard-sale, and a lot of cleaning. while i was doing all of this the thought came to me to move the bar around and do something on the wall. i had just bought this self portrait book from the good will that had old black and white photos from way back in the day. i walked to cvs and got come black tacks (2 for $5.50) & came home and got started. you can see what i did from the photos below. the only thing  missing is some patio lights i want to hang behind! so happy with how it turned out.
