Easy DIY Scarf

I know Ive been focusing a lot on my photography, but I want this blog to be about ALL the things I like:) Which includes DIY.

So, I found these old cloth napkins at the thrift store a while ago. Ive kept them in a box, saying I was going to do something with them for forever. Today, I finally found inspiration in them.

I decided to make these four squares into a unique scarf..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

1. Fold into a big triangle by putting 2 opposite corners together.

2. Put the corners of each folded triangle together so that they overlap.

3. Tie the corners together in a tight knot.

And that’s it, wrap it however you like:)

Don’t judge me, I know I look crazy:)

So I spent 30 cents on the four cloth napkins and it took all of 2 minutes to make.. not too shabby.

Fisherman adrift for 106 days in Pacific says shark led him to rescuers

Fisherman adrift for 106 days in Pacific says shark led him to rescuers.

I just thought this story was incredible, I just had to share!

Quotes from the article:

“He said he prayed the night Falaile died, and the next day a storm arrived and, over the next several days, he was able to fill two five-gallon containers with fresh water.”

“It was on the afternoon of Sept. 11 that he awoke to the sound of scratching against his boat. A six-foot shark was circling the boat and, Teitoi said, bumping against its hull.”

Do yourself a favor and check this story out!

Photography Assignment #1

Hello, all:)

Ive had a growing love for Tom Ang. Not just because he’s an amazing photographer, but because his books have taught me so much!

Right now, Im reading: Digital Photography Master Class. I’m still in the very beginning, but I have to say, I’m in love:)

This is what his website says about it: Digital Photography Masterclass was conceived as a course in photography. We wanted to give readers the idea that they were learning directly from me, as if on a workshop. So chapters started with an introduction to the topic, peppered with analyses of how pictures work. This was followed by assignments and, best of all, examples of work from amateurs who actually did the assignments and sent them for review. (Thank you to all of you who took part!) Rounding off with interviews with star photographers, it’s a book with very rich variety of content.

So… this is Assignment #1: City Lights

I live in Dayton, Ohio. Its not bustling with traffic at night, or filled with wonderful colored lights, but these are some photos I took on my little adventure:)

I really dont know why I love this picture (above) so much:)

Not to bad for my first assignment….

To help you find inspiration and further your abilities as a photographer, I hope you look into one of Tom Ang’s many books :)

Happy Shooting:)
