Tuesday: photo 178: i was very excited for the 4th... it's a fun, carefree, summery holiday dedicated to relaxing, being grateful for the freedom we enjoy in this country, cooking/eating good food, and spending special time with family. i'm one of those people that really get's into being festive. so days before i was all over researching some nifty and overly patriotic foods to make for this summer day. i finally settled on a red, white, and blue jello cake from martha stewart. her's was in perfect, clean tiers of separated colors. weeeeell.... in the end: i made my own healthy jello... it turned out orange, purple (the most offensive) and a yellowish white. and then... i tried layering the jello.... well, i really pretty much knew better, but was impatient and... didn't cool each layer post pouring. the cake turned out like this:
it sure tasted good though, ha! and maybe it could be deemed as some type of modern art? maybe?
look at that face. that's exactly how she cocks her head every time I talk to her. makes my heart melt.
Friday: photo 180: outside you can see reflections of nature in window's panes. the reflections multiply upon each other and it's lovely.
Saturday: photo 181:
driving down country roads. dust, fields, and sky.
yes, i'm a little ashamed to admit i took this photo while driving to capture motion. but i promise it was only on a very desolate road whereupon minimal cars traveled... does that make it at least semi-okay??
Sunday i took off on a road trip with friends. we were headed up to austin to the state capitol to support the HB2/SB1 bill.
the following photos I am not dividing into days as that seems a little pointless. just trust that they were taken of the course of 3 days...
following are photos 182-184:
sitting in a cramped jeep for four hours wasn't particularly comfy, but it was fun. we blasted toby mac, then switch foot, then some josh groban (much to the protest of myself and another riding in the car, ha! most of his work a little over-dramatic for my taste).
(earlyearly) monday morning we arrived at the texas state capitol. walking towards it from our parked car i snapped this photo...
the lovely emblems imprinted on the doors.
the beautiful dome. lovelovelove.
sometime this week (perhaps tomorrow?) i am going to try to share more of my photos from the days up there.
Thursday: photo 186: countertop reflections.
