UNCWonderful

15 Apr

Senior year is all about one thing: choosing where you’re going to college. And getting through high school (so two things.) Being weird and ambitious, I decided to apply to about 500 schools. Okay, maybe actually only like, 10ish. Among my top choices of the schools I was accepted to were UNCWilmington, Appalachian State, East Carolina, Florida State, University of Hawai’i: Manoa, and a scholarship to Hawai’i Pacific University. At first, I was all about UNCW. But once I was accepted to Hawai’i, my focus shifted a bit. After spending months trying to convince my parents that Hawai’i was the place for me, they still weren’t having it. After a bit of research on my moms behalf (thanks Monica) we found that I could potentially attend UHawai’i as an exchange student and still pay in-state tuition (ballin!)

SO, needless to say, I’m attending UNCW in the fall. And I am pumped beyond belief! I got a kickass roommate, a kickass dorm, and HELLOOOO, the kicka$$ beach just down the street!

Being a photography freak, I always bring my cameras with me everywhere I go. Sometimes I go the whole 9-yards and carry around my fancy pantsy camera case, sometimes I just stick em in my purse, but most times, they just chill in my car. A few weekends ago, my dad and I made the 4 hour drive to attend the UNCW Accepted Students day festival thing as well as to meet my new roommate and her family. Every┬átime I go to Wilmington, I always make the effort to set aside a day where I can just explore and take pictures. It’s almost like therapy for me. Helps me clear my mind, and allows me to focus on something that I love.

Here are some shots from a few weekends ago. Overall, it was an awesome trip a great preview of what is to come!

My dads a business guy. He has 3 children: Me, Morgue (see Aloha! tab), and his blackberry.

I took this just as the sun was setting. Shadows seems to be a re-occouring theme throughout my photos. I think they're fascinating.

I was walking down the boardwalk with my dad, and spotted this homeless man absorbing the view. The culmination of his flowing hair and attentive manner to the landscape before him urged me to snap a shot (creepily.)

I randomly found about 500 trash cans.

I love colors! Especially monochromatic schemes. Also, it seems that my shadow fetish is becoming a bit more prominent....

Half opened, or half closed....

I think this may be one of my favorite photos I've ever taken. It's one of those where I feel like I could just look at it for a long ass time. Maybe its the contrasting direction of lines? Who knows...
