So I just got back from India. And by just…I mean exactly 3 weeks ago.
Now where oh where are those amazing photos that I keep harping about? You know, those ones that show off how beautifully amazing my family is, show off my birthplace, and are just all around awe-inspiring and breath-taking?
…yeah about that…
I took like 7000 of them. And I was only there for like 3 weeks. So like 3-400 a day. A day. Yeah I’m kinda kicking myself for that. Not because they’re not amazing and captured moments that I will treasure forever. But because I got so snap happy that it’s kinda ridiculous to go through them all now after the fact because sometimes there’s 6 photos of the same thing, just varying degrees of the depth of field aka what’s in focus the most.
So to make a long-ish story short. Here are some photos. There are many MANY more to come, but I have got to get back to this whole actually posting regularly thing…more soon 🙂
PS. A bit of a self-promotion thing…If you’re a WordPress user you should check out WordCamp, an event held across tons of cities around the world that allow WordPress community to come together to learn and meet and grow (and eat good food with great company). They’re popping up everywhere from Portland to Copenhagen to Austin to Chicago to London to wherever WP users are and want to hold one next! And if you happen to be in Asheville/Seattle, come check out WordCamp [insert respective city here] to see yours truly give a talk about images and colors and how to make your site look pretty 🙂
Don’t get me wrong, I love being warm and cozy. But I would much rather be able to add layers of clothing/blankets/warm snuggly puppies to ward off the chill than be sweating, sticky, and smell. But as it is now officially summer (as of 4 days ago), I do have to accept that it is definitely beautiful outside:
And I will just leave the rest of you to enjoy it outside while I watch from my nice cool home 🙂
There are canals EVERYWHERE in Venice. Obviously, it’s a city made of islands that just happen to be really close to one another. It’s quite picturesque, especially with the sun peeking through the buildings.
Florence, Italy is an amazing, sprawling city full of art, history, and beautiful architecture. One can quite easily experience it just by stepping outside of one’s apartment or hotel room. But the best way to get an eagle eye’s view (besides climbing to the top of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND as well), is to climb to Piazzale Michelangelo and see the city for miles.
It’s always nice to go on adventures! Especially when they follow long and arduous semesters of college. I decided to take my camera with me on a trip to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens with friends. There are just a few of my favorite pictures.
