It's All Just a Blur


It's all just a blur...
You know, the last year.

John and I have lived in Cibolo for a year now. It's not quite San Antonio and still about 45 minutes south of Austin. And by no means am I complaining-- it's so quiet out here! I just miss the Lake. I miss running Town Lake on the warm summer weeknights. I miss the greenery of parks on every corner. I miss kayaking and the Kite Festival. I miss Tylers on the Drag where I bought my first pair of Reefs. I owned my last pair of Reefs for almost FIVE years! John was convinced they were worn out months ago but so many miles I covered with those things...

So I met with Mike and Marie at Austin Java for their last pre-wedding meeting (woohoo! getting excited!) went to Tylers to buy me a new pair of Reefs and then John and I did something we haven't done in over a year... walked Town Lake together.


What. You think I could leave my camera at home? I just brought my 50mm lens which I have been keeping on manual focus lately. For all of you beginning photographers out there, do yourself an incredible favor: buy a 50mm, crank that aperture open to 1.8 (or 1.4!) and play with your focus ring. I feel like everyone puts everything on "auto" these days and comes out with the same ol' stuff. You have a little light-meter on your camera and a focus ring on your lens...
don't be afraid to use them!

If you have photography questions, you know you can email or call me anytime! Of course. ;)

Well... I hope you have a fabulous week, Lovelies! Stay tuned for some more babies this week and weddings, which pick back up the first week in September!

From the lovely city of Cibolo... Ciao!
