Birtyday sunset Vol. II

Here are some more shots from my birthday celebration.

It’s been a pretty eventful couple of weeks for me, I finished my last college class yesterday, and now all that’s left are a couple of finals and a few papers. Last week I was sad to be almost done with college, but suddenly this week I’m rejoicing in the feeling that the future is wide open for me, that I have absolutely no idea where I’m going to go, but I’m going somewhere.

And while I figure it out, I’ll keep shooting :). Hope you like these!

Birthday sunset

This post is for you, Jeff, because you asked for it :). I love photography, and I love this blog, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in everyday life that I forget to make time for my passion, so thanks for reminding me I needed to post right now!!

Fortunately, I’m passionate about my work, too. I can’t believe it’s almost December and my last semester of college is almost over, but I’m glad because I know I made the most of it. I’ve started working on my thesis, and it’s so much fun! I don’t mind the paperwork, I don’t mind the crazy deadlines, I just love being able to write about something that I love. There’s nothing better than waking up every morning feeling grateful for all the wonderful things I have in my life :).

I took these shots on my birthday week, this beautiful sunset was nature’s gift to me. Hope you like them!

Sunset and sailboat

Hi there, everyone! How long has it been since I last stopped by? Time seems to fly this year. July was a month of leisure for me, I slept a lot, watched a lot of movies (fell in love with the Marx brothers), and read a few books. I didn’t take a lot of photos because I refused to keep a schedule, even nature’s. I did go shooting around the neighborhood a couple mornings, and they were so stunning that they counted for a million. The first one was misty and everything was covered in dew, the second one was sunny and everything was golden. My beloved almond tree was in bloom, so I got some lovely shots. If I manage to empty my hard drive and make enough space to download them, I’ll get around to posting them sometime (how did I end up with only 4GB of empty space?).

I’m starting my last semester next week, but don’t ask me how I feel about it because I haven’t decided if I’m elated or panicked yet. I’ll still have to work on my thesis next year, but there will be no more classes for me. I’ve no idea what I’m going to do with my life, but from what I hear that’s a pretty common state for college graduates.

These are some shots from last summer. My father and some friends were testing out an old sailboat one of them got, it held for about five minutes the first time until it was so full of water they had to drag it out, but the second time (after they fixed it) it sailed beautifully, and I got a laugh and some lovely shots. There will be more to come soon.

Life is good and crazy over here, and I wish you all as much happiness as I have :).

Reaching for the pot of gold

It feels great to have some time for the blog at last! I’m going through that part of the semester when all the partials pile up, and I’ve been pulling all-nighters and then dreaming about the stuff I studied. The upside is on Tuesday night, after all my partials are done, the whole class is having a party to celebrate the end of our practice. It’s a costume party, and we have to dress up as something related to the subject we taught. I’m going as an alien, and I will never, ever post any photos ;). I’m looking forward to some relaxing, since afterwards I’ll have to start writing papers and reading for finals. I won’t be off until January this year, but I don’t mind because I’m graduating on February!

I’ve been blessed with some breathtaking sunsets lately (I think it’s the universe’s way of patting me on the back.) Hope you enjoy the photos!

One year later

If anyone had told me a year ago that so many things could happen to a person in 365 days, I would have told them that person could never be me. And yet it is. Here I am, one year older, and my life has changed so much that it’s hard to believe. Not everything that happened was good, but I’ve grown a lot and learnt a lot and so far I’ve been able to handle everything.

I’m not a fan of birthdays, but this year I can look back and feel really happy for the last twelve months I was granted. Life has been beautiful, and I intend to make it even better.

These are the last of my “watercolor” shots and some from last week. Sunsets are very strange these days, thanks to the ash. Hope you like the photos 🙂
