Naptown photo shoot

I had a fun visit with my photographer friend, Jen, last month as we walked around downtown Annapolis around sunset, snapped some pictures and sipped some coffee.  Can you believe I’ve known her since 6th grade?!? 

Since my momma is so nice, I was able to borrow her fancy schmancy camera for the day and I had so much fun playing around with the settings.  That being the case, I’m not being humble when I say these aren’t the greatest – there are two I’m quite fond of, though – but nonetheless it was a lovely (and cold!) day.

(in the backgroud in pic above to the left is the Bay Bridge!)

(the above picture is my favorite!)

(what you can see – he’s skateboarding with laundry bag.  what you can’t see – he’s also talking on the phone.  Talk about talent!  I have a hard enough time walking and talking on the phone…)

(my favorite coffee shop – be sure to check out the Jamaican tea!)

(Annapolis without boat shoes is like Rudolph without a red nose.)

(this cracked me up!  it’s a dessert “tunnel of love” with a chocolate river; creepy little monkey with heart included.)

(Go Navy!  Beat Army!) (also, sorry for the glare.)

I decided that while I was still in possession of said camera that I would snap a couple of pictures of my sweet, furry love, Oliver. I love how his orange has so much red in it!

About Heather.B

I'm a thirty-something (how did I get so old?!) esthetician (Jan 2009), soon-to-add holistic services (Jan 2013), and then onto business school with a few more endeavors in the works. Stayed tuned though as this changes often. I call it "what-to-be-when-I'm-a-grown-up ADD" - but here's a great quote of encouragement if you're similar in nature: “The experience of centering was one I particularly sought because I thought of myself as dispersed, interested in too many things. I envied people who were ‘single-minded,’ who had one powerful talent and who knew when they got up in the morning what it was they had to do. Whereas I, wherever I turned, felt the enchantment: to the window for the sweetness of the air; to the door for the passing figures; to the teapot, the typewriter, the knitting needles, the pets, the pottery, the newspaper, the telephone. Wherever I looked I could have lived. It took me half my life to come to believe I was okay even if I did love experience in a loose and undiscriminating way and did not know for sure the difference between good and bad. My struggles to accept my nature were the struggles of centering.” – [from Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person by Mary Caroline Richards] I'm a lover of animals (especially my bird and cat), my niece and nephew (and #3 on HER way), and plants; an avid crochet-er (and other crafty things), amateur photographer, baker extraordinaire, dreamer of travels far away (camping and road trips settle me for now), searcher of different music, and beloved daughter of The King. Add in a penchant for being taught new things, and you've got a good idea of what you're dealing with here. I, also, have an endocrine disorder (PCOS) that causes me to have a low carb diet and an insatiable appetite for holistic health (along with a big butt) - I console myself with the reminder that there are worse things, like being eaten by an alligator. Lastly, I've found I get bored easily and procrastinate like it's my job. So who knows how steadily I'll contribute to this. Welcome! If you choose to read this, I've warned you fairly ;), and I really hope you enjoy the variety of my life. Please send me a note and let me know about you!

    The lighting is lovely. There’s something about waterfront towns that can’t be replicated.
    Cheers!

      Thanks so much; it was a lovely (cold) day!

      Indeed, there is something about waterfront towns!! I’m so spoiled, I cringe at the thought of being landlocked. 🙂

      Thanks much for stopping by and dropping a line!

      Best,
      Heather
