The Ghosts Outdoors

Last night while I was on a Netflix binge watching The Killing, I decided to multitask by actively binging on all the newly released font downloads as well. Not to say that these are unusual activities for me, but this was however, the first time I took an interest in the Dingbats category. Dingbats, known as the “printer’s ornament,” are generally nothing more than small symbols used to dolly up a body of text with a fancy bullet or spacer. At least that’s how I’ve always thought of them. So why then were there so many options available in this outdated category? In today’s technology, who is using dingbats and how are they using them creatively? Right now I just think of them as nicely curated clip art packages but I’m eager on finding some creative uses for them in the future! Anyways, since the show I’m watching has a lot of empty/eerie lake scenes, it only made sense for me to dust off my Lake Anna, Virginia pictures from last year and add some Deer Dingbats as ghosts into the mix.  I’m lovingly calling these “The Ghosts Outdoors.”

Salty water and hot sand is good for the soul

So much for regular posts, I can’t believe I let over a week go by! In my defense though, I did runaway to Miami, Florida for an extended weekend. I can’t call it a vacation as it was far too short of a trip. That is the unfortunate side of being an adult and having a job, you’re expected to be at work and not tanning on the beach 🙁  Nonetheless, I didn’t waste my time there. I ate great food, checked out three different beaches and discovered that I might want to get into product photography… I’m not entirely sure how to get into that exactly, but it would be cool to take pictures of awesome accessories and then see those photos end up in fashion catalogues and websites! In the meantime, I will just continue to take lovely photos of my own jewelry collection and maybe build a portfolio!
Before you jump to any criticisms, let me just say I used my cellphone for 100% of my photos since I still do not have a DSLR…
{Crossing my fingers for my birthday next month though}
Sorry for the massive amount of pictures but I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them! 🙂
^ This is how I decide what to pack by the way… and now onto my Florida Adventure:
I couldn’t help myself while editing, the heart shaped ring just made so much more sense to be surrounded by pink sand and seaweed… Don’t you think?
