My photo class assignment for this week is a landscape . I knew I wanted to photograph something sort of urban or run-down so after school drop-off this morning, I was on my way. Asbury Park has some pretty amazing stuff to take pictures of. I really wanted to take pictures of the Casino before they fix it all up and make it all shiny & new again - which seems to be what is happening to Asbury Park these days. While it's great to now be able to go there and walk around, eat & shop, I will miss the patina of these old buildings and the old 'abandoned boardwalk'. Here are some of my photos from this morning:
Here's the inside, in the process of being restored:
Excellent mermaid mural.
Cool birds. (btw...Thank you stranger who was making bird calls to the pigeons - for posing and adding a sense of scale to my photo!)
This place below used to have a carousel in it. Hubby says it was recently taken apart and sold.
Here's an E - I just liked the way it looked. I'm assuming it stands for East as it is located on the Eastern side of the intersection I was standing in.Probably not a great thing for a scrapbooker!
Last night I was up late working on 2 pub calls. Why I wait until the last minute to work on these things is beyond me. I thought I'd have time over the weekend but got sidetracked. So last night, at 1 am, I finally finished working on projects and sending in my stuff. Here are some bits and pieces:
It's a bad photo so you can't see the glitter on the letters (courtesy of Stickles Rock Candy).
Here's one last card:
cardstock on the K & Co.packaging is really nice. I've been using the little grid pattern from the new Handmade collection all over the place. Every time I discover a piece of it I get happy.
Well, as you noticed, it's all holiday stuff. It's so hard to switch gears and go from Spring to Christmas overnight. Maybe that's why I put it off so long.
Now, I'm off to unpack my Studio Calico kit for May, which arrived yesterday (along with some extra stuff I added to the box before it shipped). I'm dying to tuck into those new supplies!
