Close To Nature

As I photographed a Mountain Lion, I suddenly became awair of a presence. I looked directly next to me and my eyes met those of one of the Lions. It was trying to sniff me from the other side of the glass. It was inches away from me. The only thing protecting me was that glass. There are moments when nature feels a little too close.

Zoo Pictures

Jerry and I recently went to The Asheboro Zoo and The Richmond Metropolitan Zoo.
We took pictures of the animals.

This was a fun adventure.

Play Photos

I put in 9 hours of photography a week for my photography internship. I’m working with the college newspaper, The Rampage.
Jerry is usually taking pictures right alongside me.

Here, we are taking pictures of the college play, A Blythe Spirit.

Paint Everywhere

Our days are so busy that I find myself fitting art into every free moment. Here, Jerry got in the car and discovered me painting. I wish that I could buy more time to do it all. Happily, graduation is just around the corner. After that, things will be a little less stressful.

Terracotta Warriors

Today, Jerry and I rode the metro into Washington, DC.

Jerry had written on his hand, so that he would remember to bring the tickets. We were going to the new Terracotta Warrior exhibit that is being held at the National Geographic building.

After standing in line for a while, we made our way through the amazing exhibit.

The recorded ture explained how the soldierers had been found:
In China, some people were digging for a well in a field. Instead of finding water, they ended up unearthing the tomb of an ancient emperor. This tomb was filled with hundreds of terracotta soldiers, horses, and other figures.

After seeing the Terracotta Exhibit, we visited some of the other museums in the area.

Looking at all these things is very inspiring. I can't wait to get back to my studio and start working on art.
