beach day

It rarely ever gets cold in southern California.  One fine day in the middle of winter break, my family and I cruised around the beaches dotting the coast.  We drove up to Seal Beach, and then hit Huntington and Sunset Beach before ending at Newport Beach.  Along the way, we drove by a dog beach that I need to revisit because puppies.  That is all.

a brief foray into food photography

Over winter break, I commandeered my mom's DSLR, and basically took the camera everywhere for two weeks.  Most notably, I baked up dozens of cookies, which were meant to be gifted to our neighbors.  They ended up not getting any (sorry neighbors!).  Most were eaten at the gatherings we had at our house, but there is still a tin with some leftovers.  I bet they'll still be there when I go home for the summer.

I started off using the lenses that came with the camera, but my dad later picked up a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens that multiple bloggers suggested.  So I went back and reshot some of those original photos.

Now that I'm back at school, however, I no longer have the camera at my disposal.  Boo hoo.
