Takin’ on the Jellies

When was the last time you went to an aquarium? I vividly remember going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in seventh grade and being completely in awe of the jellyfish exhibit. I must admit, I did have a pretty big obsession with Spongebob, and yes, that could have been why I liked the jellies so much, but when you look at those guys, how could you not be intrigued? When my boyfriend asked if I wanted to go, I jumped at the opportunity to visit again (this time without a wind-up camera and a little more photography know-how) and was sucked into the infatuation I felt as an adolescent. I regretfully admit to elbowing a few adults (and maybe children…) out of the way to snap these photos and was ecstatic with my results. Take a look:

Okay, so the last one isn’t my best work, I admit. But tell me you can’t picture yourself jellyfishing for these guys with Patrick and that little square dude…

The Panorama Project

Creating a panorama is a fairly easy task, but coming up with an idea that hasn’t been done a billion trillion times is a little trickier. Go Google panoramic photography. Seriously. Do it. How many of the images that you saw were of landscapes? EXACTLY MY POINT! But landscapes are the PERFECT subjects for panos. I thought I’d try to jazz up my panoramic session with a few selfies, just for fun and because I have no friends. This is how it turned out:

The Hideout

Thankfully, I own a tripod. Unfortunately, I did not own a shutter release at the time. I did get a great workout running back and forth to snap my shots, aaaaaannnnnnndddddd I also got a splinter… in my butt… on the last picture I took (where I’m reading a book)… and had to awkwardly ask my boyfriend to help me get it out when I got home… BEAUTY IS PAIN PEOPLE! Beauty is pain.

If Disney Princesses Were Modern Men

Do you ever ask yourself what Disney princesses are like in real life? I’m pretty sure they’re all gullible bitches that have no concept of how the real world works. Do you ever say to yourself, “I wish I could be a Disney princess”? If you do, you’re probably a normal person. If you don’t, you’re definitely lying to yourself. Everyone wants to be a Disney princess. EVERYONE. I was recently given the challenge of creating a small narrative collection for a class. The result was a comical representation of those darn Disney princesses in the modern world… if they were men.

Huh?

Just check em’ out.
