You Are My Sunshine

Hello loves, its been awhile and now I am back to a steady pace of blogging. I really felt bad for totally going AWOL last weeks ago so I'm making sure I update my blog as much as possible. :) I had a lovely weekend, busy in fact. Had a photography beginners session at a friend's house on Thursday and on Friday I had the opportunity of spending time with long time friends. :) Yesterday while talking with friends from church, I once again remembered how everything truly happens. Most of the times it's full of frustrations and emotions when certain things happen in our lives but in the long run, eventually something amazing does happen and it all just works out. :) The following pictures are some of the pictures I took during the photo walk session last Thursday. A photo walk by the way was a chance for us beginners to take pics while the sun was up high and it was bright outside.

On another note, I also tried out light writing since I finally understood how to change my shutter speed. Yes, I only found out now. hahaha. I am still learning but so far I love how the pictures turned out. I'm thinking of using other light sources to see the variation in the pictures. You'll somewhat see a shadow of my brother in the second picture (I did that on purpose so you could see what really happens).

This is what I wore yesterday. I originally intended to wear the skirt over my black top and then a belt but my mom said I looked younger when I wore it that way, so I sticked to wearing it this way instead. The wind seemed to be friendly with my skirt since my skirt wanted to fly away a lot yesterday. Hehehe. :) Please ignore my facial expressions, I was falling asleep then & remembered I had to take pics for my blog. Hahaha. Yeaay for my brother who just clicks the camera nonstop. :) Hope you're all having a lovely weekend and wishin' you all a lvoely week to come. :* God bless you!
