One: Nothing interesting has happened lately. Wait. Oh yes -- something has! I was in my very first wedding. Remember when I took these photos? Yeah, I was in that wedding! It was a beautiful one too. And the bride? Most stunning one I have seen yet!

Two: I actually made it through final exams. It is a miracle I survived this semester. Heck, I'm surprised I didn't shrivel up and die. As you can see...er...read though, I am alive and well. All I have left school-wise is math. Huzzah!

Three: Finally, I am shooting in manual mode. It actually was Megan that encouraged me to do so. It started when I asked her a question about a camera, etc. and she suggested I shoot in manual. Honestly, the thought of shooting in manual scared me a bit (Me? Controlling everything myself? Nooo.) but I love it! A huge thank you to Megan for giving me the push.

Four: This.

Entering into Lucia's photo challenge

lucia, etc.

That is all. Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. i love shooting in manual! although, i still shoot in auto sometimes if i'm just snapping a quick picture.

  2. Congrats on your first wedding! And yes, manual mode is where it's at; I remember when I first started -- never turning back!

  3. How fun to be in your first wedding! I was in my first wedding when I was 7 and my big sister got married. It was so much fun! Then I was in my dear friend's wedding last summer. What a pretty shade of pink. I haven't tried manual mode yet. I would be interested in trying sometime but I haven't made the jump yet. Horrah for making it through final exams!!! Your picture is so pretty! Love the pose. :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting!

  4. I Love the forth picture! The lighting is so beautiful!!!!
