New Camera Day!

[03/04/2017] Got the D5600 today from my local photo store. This is my first "new" camera ever (it’s recent enough there’s no used ones really available)- and my last D5000 I bought used in 2009, so I’m excited for a camera upgrade after 8 years. Technology has really improved (plus all the issues my D5000…

50 Goals for 2017

So I had a big, beautiful post written called Hustle & Grace about how this year I’m focusing on actions not outcomes.

Bowie in the Street [67/365]

[09/11/2016] What an epic final day of the conference. To sum it up simply: a great day. Things that happened today included walking around on 5-inch platform boots all day dressed as Ziggy Stardust, seeing some truly fantastic talks, meeting amazing creators, and getting to ride around on a KARAOKE BUS singing with everyone, which…
