Happiness is a gecko {living outside the stacks} 6
I tend to be very critical of my photography. In my head I have this image that I want to create. This scene I want to set. This mood I want to capture. And it never seems to materialize. I know that some of it is that I don’t have […]

Week 2: Happiness is…


011 52 Classic {living outside the stacks} 11
Like every year before this, I’m starting out with high photographic hopes. My goal is to stretch and grow as a photographer and, for the life of me, complete at least one photography challenge! So far, I’m participating in, I don’t know, 3 or 4, and using the prompts from […]

Monochrome Monday Shoes {living outside the stacks} 4
This was my weekend to work, so I didn’t get the opportunity to take many pictures. So since I was off today and needed to get this week’s Flickr Project 52: 2016 Edition prompt out of the way, I decided to share it today. The prompt for this week is “Dark”, […]

#2015BestNine {living outside the stacks}
You guys, I ain’t gonna lie, 2015 came to an abrupt end. I mean, I realize we had a whole year to prepare for it but it still feels like the end just snuck up on me. I didn’t prepare any year in review posts, I didn’t set any goals […]
