365 Days of Photos

i made a conscious decision the day i graduated to document the next 365 days of my life through photo documentation. i haven't posted any yet, but they have been taken...

this conscious decision was made based on 2 separate reasons
1. i graduated from college thus beginning a huge, new chapter in my life. pictures from this year have the potential to be very intriguing
2. i received a nikon d60 from my loving parents upon graduation...i am very excited to learn all about it

day 01 - 05.09.2009
"graduation from college"
-this was my favorite picture from all the graduation
festivities...the timing was PERFECT, and my
DAD took it. didn't know he had such skills.

day 02 - 05.10.2009
"graduation celebration - chili's"
-went with the family to chili's to celebrate graduation
weekend...testing out the camera as well.

day 03 - 05.11.2009
"coca-cola advertisment - downtown rogers, ar"
-downtown historic rogers, ar has some really
incredible "old timey" attractions. the old coca-cola
advertisement on the side of this building is one of
my favorites.

day 04 - 05.12.2009
"bottle cap bruise - day 4"
-this was the result of an intelligent decision the night
of graduation. after the 4th day it was looking rather
nice. on the eve of graduation, i was informed that
guys sometimes punch bottle caps into each others
arms...sometimes they scar. i wanted to be 'one of
the boys' i guess you could say. after asking A LOT of
guys (and one friend telling me how retarded he
though i was) i found someone to do it. i didn't think
he really would, so the sharp pain in my arm as i was
looking away really surprised me.

day 05 - 05.13.2009
"fabulous flora"
-i've always made fun of my mom for her flower
obsessions, but i finally will admit that they are fun
to photograph.

day 06 - 05.14.2009
"traumatic tattoo experience"
-i got my first tattoo today! "Beloved" because it is
my identity in Christ. i even wrote it myself. it was
rather traumatic, not THAT painful, but i did almost
pass out. i have a tendency to work myself up over
small things.

University of Arkansas Graduating Class of 2009

after 5 years of pursuing an undergrad (1 year biology major + 4 years interior design) it is DONE!! i graduated today at 1.00pm at Randal Tyson Indoor Track Facility. it was great to be DONE...scared to move on to the real world. the speaker mentioned a quote that i had heard before and love.

"the only constant is change..." - Isaac Asimov

it is inevitable, and that's part of the reason i can't hang around this campus forever. it's bittersweet but good. there is a whole world out there waiting for me. time to get started!! i'll add some pics my mom took from the ceremony later (:

a good part of my monday/tuesday morning (11 hours) was spent assisting my friend in the editing and composition of a time consuming but altogether intriguing photography project. fun was are (some of) the results:
