Oh No! My Camera!

About a month ago I set my camera down on the side of something to say hello to friends and someone accidentally hit it, making it fall to the ground. I ran to it thinking I would find it on it’s death bed. Luckily, it turned on and still took pictures. Though, it had a wound on it’s bottom left corner.

For the past month I’ve still been using it and haven’t noticed a thing until yesterday while taking some photos at a local graveyard. Here’s the picture that was taken.

Urggggggggggg, I’m really hoping the result of this is because I left my camera in the cold car over night and not from the fall. I’m kinda nervous about it and am hoping I’m not going to get a new camera.


July Run Down

July has been a busy, quick month for me. Time for a quick run down of what’s been going on since I haven’t been able to post.

I had nothing planned for the fourth until about 2 days before. I ended up grabbing some hotdogs with afriend and seeing fireworks at the Country Club. We were planning on going downtown to dance at a jazz club that I had never been to and then the IBS kicked in. We jumped back in the car and headed back to the house to grab some medicine. The night did not just end at that, we went back to his house and had a relaxing evening with his family. I was a little disappointed because I did not have my camera on me as the fireworks went off though I did take this picture with my iPhone.

My birthday was on the seventh. I decided instead of having a party or a get together I would celebrate with my mom, especially since it’s going to be my last birthday at home.

Then came beach planning. I went to the coast to visit an ex-boyfriend and his family, while being nervous it went very well and I had a blast. It’s always good to catch up and reminisce with old friends. From there I went to my best friends beach house where he, his friend and I had a relaxing vacation time together. (Pictures // Videos)

Once I got home it was time to start work on switching my blog from Cathryn101.wordpress.com to here at CathrynGray.com. I will also mention finding the papers to change my name, which I will being doing today. =]

I hope everyone’s had an exciting July!

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.

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.
