As the Year Closes

What a year it has been. It's been well over a month since my last post - but it's important to me to keep this updated at least once and a while (and there have been plenty of instagram photos in the interim to those watching my Twitter) A good place to see my recent photos is right here actually - Photopile.

Anyway, on to the photos. I can't post them all at once, so here they are in a series of posts.

After Christmas

Before heading back to San Francisco, Bunny & I took a trip to Red Rock Canyon just outside of Mojave, CA. We crawled around on the rocks and captured some of the wonderful landscapes out in the desert.


Christmas was a little complicated - I had a pretty nasty flu on Christmas Eve & Day - so I wasn't really in the picture taking mood. We did have a nice time though - it was the first time Bunny, Christina, Marie, Nick, and I all spent the holidays together. Teenie got a great new camera, and took photos of the whole trip (I'll post some of her photos next). Meanwhile, Bunny and I took a trip to LACMA where I took photos of the great architecture and a rare prototype of the Eames Plywood Elephant (one of only two).
At home, I also got some close up photos of our beautiful ornaments.
 It's a snowman!

Back in San Francisco (Late Nov/Early Dec)

Back in the city, we decorated a small tree for the apartment and I got a nice photo of the moon from campus one evening.


Went Geocaching in Mentryville with Eman & celebrated Mom's Birthday

It started as a photoshop OR My new blue wall

I have a bright red couch. It's really really bright.
Lately, I've been wanting to put more color into the room, I love how much the couch stands out, but sometimes it feels disconnected from the rest of the room. The desire led to me creating this photoshopped photo of my "not-a-fireplace" wall (landlord boarded up the old fireplace)
What I had was this:
And what I came up with was this:
I really like this dark teal color, but didn't want to deal with painting or anything like that. I did have the brilliant idea of using some sort of fabric and stretching it along the wall.
Bunny and I headed over to the fabric store and found a great piece of teal denim that would be sturdy enough to make the wall look solid and still have the nice color I wanted in the room.
So we cut and I started to hang:
and soon enough:
I had my blue wall!
