WPPI Highlights III

Alrighty. I am finally wrapping up my Vegas posts.
But first, a little video on some thoughts I have on drivers back here at home :D It's cute cause people in California are like the Cowardly Lion's of the driving world. They talk lots of smack about traffic, wreckless driving and how tough the roads are - especially in LA. Sure, yes, traffic is pretty bad during rush hour.
But as soon as rain touches the roads, the highway crawls. People are pushed up against the steering wheel. Blinkers are left on for 2 and a half miles because drivers can't focus on anything else but driving.
It's cute :D
You talk a big talk, California, but come over here to DC and we'll really play...
Anywho, here is my video

Vegas time, yo!

Vegas. Hmm. It is definitely "photographically" pretty.
However, I don't think I would ever go back, except for WPPI. Certainly not my favorite city in all the world :D

PS. This is SOOC (straight out of camera). Thank you brand new 5D.

As is this :D

On the last night in Vegas, all of us roomies (and the boys who were NOT roomies) went to dinner. I don't actually remember what hotel we ended up in -- I think The Venetian -- but we ate at Cheescake Factory. And we walked a long, long time. And Cheescake Factory has way too much on their menu.

Speaking of roomies, I need to give a little shout-out to Christi and Cait.
These two friends from North Carolina got us hooked up with a sweet deal (woot for friends with time shares!) and I was so blessed to be able to room with them :D
Christi Ann is still in highschool and has an amazing eye! She is going places, ladies and gentleman, she's doing so good!

Cait is FULL of personality and makes me laugh so hard. She is also quite talented with an awesome eye. And she's so young! You know I have a special place in my heart for the young photog's of the world :D

I love you two so much!

Alright, another highlight!
A 3-hour-one-on-one workshop with Mark Brooke!

I love how he uses tilt shift lenses, and I wanted to learn from him. I'm about to rent one and hopefully buy one soon. I just LOVE the look so very much :D

This little joke is how we photography nerds roll ;D
But it made me smile, and therefore, made the blog.

And one last "Hello!" to my dear friend Ally. I really like hanging out with you.

Ok. No more Vegas posts! Donezo!
