Milford Sound in New Zealand

Before I get on my way with Fabulous Photo Friday, check out my guest post on

Crafted Love

 from Wednesday if you want to get lost in some more photo stuff!

I am currently in Baltimore (which does not at all fit the image I had of it in my mind), listening to Norah Jones Holiday Station on Pandora, and could not be happier to have a few days to just catch up on work.   Believe it or not, I am also excited to have some time to work out. I come and I cannot wait.  I've been so busy that I've definitely been neglecting running, so I know it will feel good to get a few runs in this weekend.  

I cannot believe it's already December and that Christmas will be here before we know it.  I cannot wait. I love, love, love this time of the year (minus the cold).  

Anyway, I have always seen the photographer of the week's pictures floating around, but never knew a name to the picture.  Needless to say, I love her work and I'm sure you will too.  Here's the photographer of the week:

Cassia Beck




This week I tried to do what I called "Mesh Beck," where I didn't exactly try to mimic Beck's work, but I was definitely inspired by her work.  I paid close attention to color, objects, and patterns in her work, and took some images I had that were pretty gritty and incorporated a touch of her in them.  Not exactly sure what I think yet - didn't do enough to get anywhere - but I think there might be something there.  What do you think?!

I obviously used two totally different techniques in the two images I messed around with - not sure which one works better.  Suggestions? 

Well, Happy Friday! I am finally off for a run.  Enjoy the weekend everyone :)
