Another Rainy Day

Holi: The Festival of Colors

For those who don't know what this is all about, Holi is the Hindu festival that celebrates the start of spring. A bonfire is lit, burning an effigy of Holika, representing evil spirits. As the bonfire is lit, the colors begin to fly. The colors in Spanish Fork are dyed chalk, but in other places can range from anything from pastels to colored water. During the festival, which spans a few days, different waves of radience go throughout the universe, creating a wide span of colors that "nourish and complement the funciton of repective elements in the atmosphere", and thus the throwing of colors. The festival today in Spanish Fork is apparently the largest in North America, and rumor has it that over 10,000 people were there today.

Plenty more to come, but I thought I'd better post something from today's events of epic proportions. I will try not to get too carried away and post a million, because I know that people hate seeing so many after the festival when facebook is taken over by photos from today. So I will try to spare your eyes and only post a few.

So once upon a time when i could eat normal food before I got my wisdom teeth out, i had the most delicious meal ever last weekend at Rudy's, consisting of the "worst BBQ in Texas". For those of you who have not been to Texas, this place is amazing. It's connected to a gas station and country store with picnic tables lined up under an over hang outside. You walk up to the outdoor pit where you order meat by the pound and they give it to you with a loaf of bread and wax paper to make your brisket sandwiches on. No plates, and only spoons and paper trays to put your cream corn in.

New Camera

So I am a brat who happens to spend all her money on camera equipment... and got the new Canon 5D Mark II. yeah, i know. And here was my little test run from my little brother's track meet tonight.

Also, just to brag. This is just to show off what it would look like if you wanted to shoot at 6400 ISO, for all you camera nerds out there.

Well, it's a mock cyanotype made via photoshop. For my photo history class we had to mimic a photograph or style that we have studied. I chose Anna Atkins, the woman who published a book of cyanotype images of British algae.
