one way to relax.

The following is the product of a long crazy day at work, and being bored at 2am while video-chatting with a friend on the other side of the country 😉

This week’s theme over at I ♥ Faces is “Hats”.

...because sometimes we just have to relax and be silly.

So, it has indeed been a little over a week since my last post, which is -for me- pretty unusual… But a lot has happened since that last post! So, let’s begin.

This is the my dad’s 1980’s Nikon N2000. and I love it already. Thursday, if all goes as planned (see later in this post) I will be having a date with two friends–Cameras and Coffee.

Just some photographs I’ve taken over the past few days, I’m actually going to make a series in and around the Lehigh Valley , kinda like a photoessay of photo-documentary. And I plan to enter some contests with it too!

Hey there gang–this is my first entry into a series of contests found over at the I Faces website.  Each week they host different themed photography contests, and today I happened to stumble upon their website and decided I’d try my hand in a little photography.

I’m posting this entry a few days early (the first chance to post an entry is Monday), but I’m sure its of no harm.

This week’s theme is the self-portrait.

WEEK 15 – Apri 20th – Self Portrait
We’d like to meet each of you! 🙂

Kids Category: A portrait of You and one (or all) of your children or You and a child you know.

Adults Category: Show us YOUR face…and your face only!

For this challenge, you have to take the photo and you have to be holding the camera. You cannot use a tripod to help you. (This should be fun!)

This trip to Jamaica was actually one of my most memorable vacations with my family… went to Jamaica for Christmas 2009, scored a fantastic quaint little condo right on the beach for $600 for the WHOLE week! over CHRISTMAS! Fantastic!  And it came with a helper, she was one of the greatest person I’ve ever met.  She wanted to do her job, she was fun loving, helpful, and just an all-around fantastic woman, and her name was Rose.  She took us into the markets of Ocho Rios, cooked fantastic jamaican entreés for us… I’ll have to dedicate a post to her and our trip to Jamaica a little bit later.  All-in-all, it was one of the few times my entire family got together, enjoyed eachothers company, and actually got along and laughed!!

ps-I know I’m not the greatest photographer 😛 Actually, I’m hardly “decent”!! But I try, and I have fun doing it!  and I guess that’s all that matters!
