Introduction

Hello guys!  I'm writing this on Sunday, but am trying the schedule release feature on this blog site.  I am going to attempt the NoJoMo this year.  I tried DePhoMo a couple years ago and barely got halfway through it, maybe I'll keep up with it each day this year. lol.  If you don't know what that is NoJoMo stands for November Journal Month.  It's an entry each day.  There are many entries I want to write and share so hopefully I'll be able to fill up the month.


This blog started as a photography blog, but I've decided to make it a general one.  I'll be mostly sharing photographs I've snapped but will also be sharing other stuff.  I also have a blog called The Indecisive Bride.  Not sure whether to keep that separate of not..lol..indecisive much?


So a little bit about me fore anyone who doesn't know me already.  I am a 29 year old Floridian.  I have lived here most of my life, but was born in Hawaii and lived there until I was two.  I love anything Italian, and was able to visit and travel the country back in 2006.  I was recently engaged to Tony.  He proposed very sweetly and romantically back in June of this year.  He surprised me with a day at Discovery Cove and swimming with the dolphins.  We were alone in the caves there when he asked me.  I can't wait until next year when we are married! :c)


Hmm, what else?  Oh!  I am a fellow host of a podcast called N3RDc@st.  Come find us on facebook, or check out our blog.  We are social media nerds that love talking about anything nerdy, especially books, movies, and tv shows!  Come join us and let us know any thoughts or ideas.


As you know I also love photography and capturing life.  I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember.  I remember when I was younger I posed my Barbies and took some group pictures of them. LoL.  This was back in the day of film pictures, I could only imagine how many Barbie pictures I would have if that was in the digital age.   I wonder if I could find those pictures; there may have also been some with our dog dressed up in a doll's dress.  Poor Nikki lol. 


A couple years ago I purchased a SLR digital camera and I love it!  I am still learning all of the manual features and such.  There's so much to learn out of the auto features.  It's nice taking good pictures in auto feature, but the more and more I learn about the manual settings the more I find how awesome it is to have more control over creating that awesome picture.  I'm still learning my style, but the journey is half the fun!  I'm a shy natured person so I don't do well with posing people for portraits, so I focus more so in nature photography.  


I redesigned the banner for this blog on Sunday.  It's not what I was originally thinking of when I thought of the design.  At first I had 'negatives' with pictures made to look like they were part of the negatives.  That's where the "Let's See what develops" comes from.  It just didn't look right once I had it all out in photoshop so I kept playing with it.  I really like what came out.  I asked my fiance Tony what he thought, but he said he's not creative so he's not the one to ask. lol.  So any thoughts, or ideas for improvement?  Or is it fine like it is?  


I think that's a pretty good entry to start with.  


*I'm going to add something to this blog because I saw a new thing that lasts this month...30 days of thankfulness:
I am thankful for God.  I'm going to start here because where would we be. :c)


Let's see what develops!
