  This week the challenge was Alcohol so I wasn’t really sure what to make. Somewhere in the week we decided we were going to finally use our slow cooker, and since we had a lot of chicken this is what we made. I’ve never used a slow cooker before so I wasn’t sure how […]

  The Challenge was Pan Frying this week, which happens to be the same week as Liz’s Birthday. When I asked her what she wanted she said breakfast in bed so I figured I would kill two birds with one stone. I didn’t get to make it for breakfast because we went away but I had already […]

Week 3 – Soup: Corn Chowder

  This week the challenge was soup. Liz suggested corn chowder so that is what we decided on. I’ve never made corn chowder or any other chowder so this was a new endeavor. Again I used www.SeriousEats.com as a starting point. I read through their recipe and write to get an idea of what goes […]

Week 2 – Chinese: Egg Rolls

  This week the challenge was Chinese. I had planned on making a whole meal with different appetizers but Liz was gone most of the week and worked the weekend. I didn’t really want to do all that work for nothing. I decided to just do egg rolls instead. I had never made them before so it was interesting. […]

New Editing Technique

I started watching a new podcast that shows different tutorials every week and I’ve already learned so much. PhotoshopUserTV is really awesome. This is one of the techniques I learned to do and I think the outcomes look really cool. I think these images would work very well as photo album covers such as a […]

When I first got my 50D, I wanted to take pictures with it so badly that I just drove to the airport and snapped a few pictures to test it. I had also just gotten my new tripod so it was a good time to test the auto bracketing capability of the new setup. I […]

Beach Rocks

This was another one of the pictures from Rockport I never posted for some reason. I like how the colors turned out in this picture and the green color of the water. If you could see the unedited picture you would know why I like HDR so much, it completely transformed this picture.

Rockport Flower

I’m finding lots of picture I never posted of the Rockport trip that I like. This one I especially like, because of the complementing colors. It really makes the red pop and just has a cool look to it.

Quarry Bush

This was one of my favorite photos from my trip to Rockport with Liz. I like the way the colors turned out. Getting here was a little out of the way of the trail and from here we went in farther into the unknown. We eventually ended up on the beach and worked our way […]
