Raindrops on roses (AKA a few of my favorite things)
Now, if you know me you might be surprised by that because I never drink coffee, but I say why let a little detail like that keep me from enjoying a wonderful thing?
And I knew before even trying it that it would be great in hot chocolate!
Yep I was right.
Oh, one more thing I'm excited about... like, WAY excited!!...This morning I got up at 5AM to do some Black Friday shopping - on-line. No, I don't ever do that craziness that is Black Friday in the stores, but I bought myself a spot in a photography workshop conducted by a couple of my favorite photographers, Justin & Mary (http://www.justinmarantz.com/). It's called Walk Through a Wedding and takes place next February in CT. I just LOVE Justin & Mary's work, and LOVE the amazing nice people that they are. I can't wait!
You know, I blog-stalk several photographers on a regular basis. I've found which ones are willing to share their knowledge and experience and I've found 4 or 5 whose work I really admire. I frequently leave comments when I see an image that I just love, or when something they've written moves me. But here's what made me want to set my alarm for 5AM, spend a good chunk of money, and travel all the way from Indiana to Connecticut in February for their workshop: Mary Marantz is the only professional photographer who has taken the time to look at MY blog and comment on MY photographs! I was SO stoked when I saw her comments on a couple of my posts. It gave me such a boost to keep taking photographs, keep learning and keep improving. Yep, that girl knows how to win friends! Justin & Mary, I can't wait to meet you guys in person and spend a couple days with you!!
