I acquired a friend..
While driving from Wilmington to Sunset Beach I had a passenger that I didn’t know about until I got out of the car. Poor thing was a little dead when I found him.

Visit to Tanglewood Park, Two

Two days ago I went on a photo shoot hunt, and I decided I would go to the Arboretum located in Tanglewood Park this time. As I was nearing the gate after a drive down the highway I started to get nervous because there was a massive rain cloud above the park. Luckily it didn’t rain while I was there, just on the way home. I picked up a brochure and started to walk around, finding out that many of the flowers were not blooming or some of the gardens were under construction. Through it all I did get some shots.

I also went down to one of the fields and got a video and some photos of the horses that were grazing that day.

Enjoy!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

School procrastination led me to creating CAFAvids.com

About 4 months ago I ran across Kevin Nalts website looking for Revver information, and I found his own rendition of an online video site at CubeBreak.com. Cube break was made by Nalts for those at work to get away from what they’re actually supposed to be doing by providing humorous videos to watch. After looking around I then found his video on how to make your own online video site. I said to myself, “Eh, that’s easy.. I could do that in 2 seconds”. I tried to just throw some videos on a page and be done with it, but I couldn’t persuade myself to publish something that looked like videos on a blank page. It hurt my feelings not to have any kind of structure. After that I still thought about it, but moved on to other things…….

Until last night, or about 10 hours ago, I found myself procrastinating from doing school. Instead of messing around with pictures, going to the pool, watching a movie or TV I was making my own online video site powered by Revver. I decided to choose CAFA = Cute and Funny Animal videos due to my passion and love for them. Who can resist a little puppy wrestling with her brother, or a sleepy kitten? I know I can’t.

The website it… drum roll please… CAFAvids.com

Well I hope you enjoy! I’m off to get a little rest after my all night 10 hour excursion into video site land. 🙂

Gel Candles

I love to have an outlet for being creative. The internet gives me all sorts of outlets, from graphic design to facebook. I’ve been wanting to have another type of outlet and after thinking about different possiblities I came up with one. Gel candles! Have you ever seen them in the store, those squishy candles. I wanted to understand what they were made out of and how to make them, and I learned just that. The possibilities are endless, from seascapes to plain clear. The process to me is fun; melt, add and pour.

I’ve made about 10 so far, without counting the test subjects. It does take sometime, but it’s enjoyable!

Here are some pictures of them:

Visit to Tanglewood Park, Photography

Yesterday, at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC, it went from raining to sunny back to raining in an hour. Below are some of the photos that were taken with my Sony DSC-T100 during the time I was there.
