Well world, I am officially back from the dead. Not in a zombie sort of way, but in the I-don’t-have-any-more-school way. No more late night papers, projects, and that irrepressible feeling of knowing there is always something I should be doing that I am not doing. I do apologize to all two of you who have been reading the non-updates during my summer-school hiatus. Breaks, like school, are a necessary evil.
Today, I happily debut my new baby. Well, not an actual baby, but she’s close enough. Thanks to all my lovely family and friends, I was able to purchase my first DSLR for graduation. I decided to plan a little bit a head and not get the cheapest option, but instead I ultimately decided on the Nikon D90 after much anticipation and deliberation.
Now let me be the first to admit that I am more than a newbie with DSLR photography. I have read, and read, and read, but nothing teaches how much you don’t know like actually practicing the thing you thought you knew.
Did that even make sense?
Anways, so I can’t wait to share with you guys during this learning time for me as I get acquainted with taking “good” photos of people, places, things, and FOOD!
My first model is, of course, the cutest nephew in the whole world.
He likes to moonlight as a shaggy-haired male model.
For my first new-camera recipe, I thought it best to keep it simple.
Summer is still in full swing here in North Texas, which means refreshment is always on order.
This drink delivers just that.
1 Cup Strawberries, hulled
1/2 Cup Simple Syrup (1 cup sugar simmered in 2 cups water until all sugar is dissolved)
2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
1 Cup Soda Water
Add strawberries, syrup and lime juice to a blender and blend until there are no more chunks. Pour mixture into a glass, top with soda water and then stir.
Enjoy and feel refreshed!
