My interest in photography predates my immersion into the world of blogging. I think part of the reason I wanted to start blogging is that I had really grown distant from my camera during my freshman year of college. I tried doing a 365 day creative photo project during hs, but taking photos of what I was wearing seemed way more accessible and incorporated my love of clothes. I've never had any sort of proper lessons in photography, but as with many fields of life, by using google, a girl can learn a lot. I'd have to say one of my favorite parts of the day is golden hour. It's crazy how within the last hour of sunlight the difference in 10-30 minutes can make in your photos. Add in the hills and buildings of Los Angeles, and your change in lighting is even more dramatic. On the edge of campus I found this patch of random flowery plants, a pseudo garden you might say, right before the sun disappeared. I will most definitely be taking more photos here in the future. 

This dress was a total frumpy mess when I bought it. With my short stature, a knee length shift dress  seriously does me no favors. But my skills with any type of sewing ceased the minute I walked out of 8th grade home ec. But alas, equipped with an iron and some fabric glue, this $12 dress is at a wearable length, yay!


P.S Today's google logo in homage to Jackie Robinson! I feel like saying "big fan" or "big inspiration" sounds inappropriate  but my teenage mind is seriously lacking the proper terminology for what I want to convey. Pluuuuus he's an UCLA alum which makes me proud of my school!

  12. You had SUCH good things to say in this post. My love for photography also predates blogging. I think I was really inspired by editorials in magazines. I wanted to try and see if I could create some magic of my own in photos and blogging provides an outlet for that. I ALSO really love that time of dusk where the light changes so much. It's my favorite time of day and your photos are a perfect example of why; they are so gorgeous and different!

    Thank you for the get well wishes! I'm feeling a lot better today.

    xo,

  21. I loved photography in the same way, but what's ironic is that with my blog, most of the time I'm in front of the lens. Shame, what a shame.
