Happy 4th of July, America!
I recently stayed at my friend’s fabulous “cando”. They fitted it with vintage and comfortable furnishing, it made me feel so much at home. I woke up the next day, walked outside with my camera, took a picture of their place and before you know it, I was walking around the whole park like a tourist. Luckily the homeowners didn’t chase me away! A few minutes drive and I get to enjoy the rest of the day in Saugatuck.
This Mobile Park Series is an homage to America’s independence. Here’s to a simpler and meaningful July 4th celebration.
Here is a blurry scene of the couple in the background, bride in red and groom in black, with the bouquet as the “centerpiece”.
In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.
It just works, on or off. The wikimeaning of RED.
Finally after 3 months of preparations and dramas that comes with a wedding, our hard work is done. And the couple’s future starts. Congratulations to my dearest friend. Cheers!!!
It took me a full day to walk this annual show held at Anaheim Convention last weekend. There were a lot of new, interesting and cool stuff, but taste, look and affordability are my requirements for picking my top choices this year. It was a really good show this year and I can’t wait for next year.
Interestingly, Petchup and Muttstard, stole the top stop for me. The runner-ups, in no particular order are as follows:
Frosting Queens (packed icing) and Dandies (air-puffed mallows)
ProYo (protein yogurt bars) and Holy Crap (breakfast cereal)
My favorite until I saw a similar one at the grocery tonight was Tubulars (bead flavored filled straws) and Half Pops (half popped corn)
