Well, I am officially on Spring Break. The past few weeks have been pretty hectic. I had two tests this week, one final, and a project due. I got a 95 on the final. A 98 and 93 on the tests. And a 93 on the project. So, it was worth buckling down and studying. I also had a birthday on Monday. I am 39 years old now. There are other women in my classes who are around my age. Lately I have been wanting to photograph them. It is a different experience, I think, going to school as a person 35+. I am sure they have different reasons for it. Some may want to advance in their careers. Others, like a woman in one of my classes, just felt something was missing in her life. I think it could be an interesting project. I do not have all the details mapped out yet, but I usually discover most of that along the way. Anyway, it may be a good summer project for me.
I finally have some extra time to catch up on blogs and clean my house, so that is what I am doing today. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
I used my Lensbaby Composer Pro with 80 edge for this portrait. I have not really broken in this lens to see what it is all about, but I do think it gives an interesting effect. The depth of field is a result of the lens, which is somewhat like a tilt-shift.
March 1st already. In a few weeks, the magnolias will be budding. A few weeks after that and there will be leaves on the trees. Spring is on its way!
