Finally! I have been trying to upload this photo and for some reason it hasn't been working. This is the path that was across the street from my flat in Prague. I lived right across from an amazing park called Divoká Šárka. Šárka, a girls name and divoká meaning wild. Wild Šárka. Most of the year the days in Prague were dark and dreary, but as you can see, the fog and mist just adds to the romance of the city. This picture's an oldie but one of my favorites because this was one of those nights where it was just me, my camera, the cool crisp air and the fall leaves. A perfect night.
It was nice falling asleep to the rain last night but not so fun waiting for the bus in it. It's still so cold here in Seoul that the rain turned to snow! I thought I'd post a picture to give us all a little warmth! I took this last summer in Malaysia at a Buddhist temple. I absolutely love the colors, patterns and designs they use to decorate their temples. As it rains/snows I'm sitting in my office dreaming about a warm tropical beach and iced teh tarik!
Also, my friend Carolyn posts her monthly goals on her amazing blog and she's inspired me to do the same (at least for this month). So here we go!
1. Find a place in Seoul that prints on foam core and have pictures printed for the flat.
2. Finish both flower lamps (see previous post).
3. Take awesome "family" pictures for R&B's (our flat's name).
4. Find a cord that connects my mac to my TV for optimal Game of Thrones viewing.
5. Finish "the city" part of my website. hah
Last weekend I finished one of my flower lamps! I saw something similar in a store in Hongedae (here in Seoul) and I set out to make some! I used burlap and Christmas lights. There are two more to come, a khaki one and a dark brown one! The newspaper ones are just models, they aren't staying...
Starting work on the second one!
While I was back in the USA I stayed with my college roommate and dear friend Candace. She took me to Huntington gardens and let me borrow her wide angle lens! I've been wanting one for a while. Now to go get one!
My friend Brian took me to a Hanok Village (traditional Korean village) here in Seoul yesterday. I love all the details you find wondering the narrow streets!
There was a lot of snow here in Seoul yesterday so I went to Olymipc Park last night to get some shots. It was so beautiful but so gosh darn cold!
So if you've ever been in Hongdae or Itaewon late at night I'm sure you've spotted a pink taco truck with three guys whipping up some late night snacks. If you've seen it and walked on by, then shame on you. A Texan girl knows her tacos, and damn, these are good! More pictures of the boys coming soon!
On Monday I went on a day trip with all the teachers from my school. One of our stops was "Herb Island." There were tons of these little guys flying around. Here I am chasing them to get a picture and the Koreans would scream, flail their arms and run the other way when one got close!
Hello and thank you for visiting!
After many complaints about my extensive picture taking and limited picture posting, I thought I'd give in and make a blog! Now I'm pretty bad about about keeping up with these types of things so it's up to you to keep me accountable! Also, please, please, please leave comments, criticisms, photo tips, a little bit of love, etc.... I would love to hear your thoughts and input! Also, check out the links above for more photos from Asia, Europe and more!
My first photo of many...
These pictures are from Muuido, which is a little island in Incheon with some lovely quiet beaches! I spent the day with two girls I just love talking to and spending time with! Such a nice relaxing day!
