WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED PHOTOGRAPHY + PAVED NATURE TRAILS?? // GUYS I ALMOST RAN INTO A CAT



SO. this past week i went upstate to visit my sister and hang out at her apartment while she did grad school stuff. it was a blast, and i did get to roam around the college campus, 20,000+ STUDENTS IS A LOTTA PEOPLE. at least to my little country mind but because ya know i'm an idiot and all with a hamster brain, i forgot my camera on the first day while actually on campus. and let's just try to ignore all the abstract art and parks and aesthetic-y buildings and photo-worthy moments, okay? okay

anyways MOVING ON.


after i got back to my sis's apartment after that whole fiasco, i remembered her telling me about these trails literally right behind the hedge behind her apartment building. so i'm like "cool, lez go check 'em out cuz i'ma country girl and am mentally disturbed by the sight of living areas closer than 30 feet from each other" and gUESS WHAT.

THEY WERE PAVED.

i dunno how popular these kinds of trails are,  but the fact that this place is so flat that you can have paved biking/walking trails that are actually in the woods never ceases to amaze me. i immediately got super excited and ran to grab my camera, snacks dangit now i'm hungry again, and my sis's bike only to realize the bike tires were squashed like a two week old grape that got stomped on, and the only pump was in the back of her car...

so i ended up walking the first day, then biking the second day. which was prob a better idea in the first place as i went later in the evening on the first day, thus better lighting for photos so heh, let's just pretend i'm smart and planned that all along. :D

i'm obviously still way too amateur at this whole photography thing is, so bear with me here while i try to even figure out my camera settings. XD most of these have a tad hint of filters just to make 'em match with the whole "country" (i say as i hear highways from the path itself) theme, but for the most part, the real skill lies in the 20 year old DSLR that my dad just so happened to let me steal borrow.

so yeah. here ya go.

oh look, wild berries that are potentially poisonous!!! i mean, i am hungry for a snack..
*hunger games salute*

okay so i actually almost ran into met a cat on my bike ride and she was super cute and had a purple collar, but started running away when i got close, so this is the best shot i got. she was also so skinny compared to the obese monstrosity i have home it was really weird

*waves at anonymous biker* wait no that's creepy stahp

oh look. a field. very wow. much aesthetic.





*slams pinecone onto asphalt* NATURE


probs my fave of the bunch, cuz dO YOU SEE THOSE LITTLE BOKEH AND LENSE FLARES. WOW Q YOU ACTUALLY PULLED SOMETHING OFF SOMEWHAT LOOKING LIKE A REAL PHOTO




iT WAs sO fLAt

i honestly don't even really know what this is, i just had a lot of fun with the black and white effects XD

so whadya think?? which was yo favorite? there's not many, but they're not too shabby. although, got any pointers for this lost soul?? i honestly need all the help i can get *sheepish girn* oh and what did ya'll do this week??? let's chat and snack on oreos in the comments. :D

#TheReadingQuest // where i perform mighty deeds to slay the enemy aka my tbr








because let's be honest. tbr's haunt us in our sleep.

never giving us the peace of being read all the way through, the endless lists nag at the back of our minds, constantly growing their forces and plotting to slap us in the face when we least expect it.



oh yes hello tbr


i wasn't planning on making a whole post on just the few books i'm planning on reading, but uh CW and Aentee didn't exactly help matters so here i am. this may or may not end up with me sobbing in a corner from lack of reading speed.
