Photo 101 Day 10: In the Shadows

It was a cool afternoon in January. I promised my nephew that if he helped me take pictures then I’d break out my new Lego set don’t judge me and play with him. It wasn’t really a hard sale since I have over 2500 Lego pieces. stop judging me Plus, he told me once that he wanted to be an architect which of course made me so incredibly happy.

So we took to the front yard. Just me, mi papito and my Sony a5000. We took pictures of the dogs, the neighbor’s horse and mule and random clouds in the sky. We must have spent an hour and a half outside before I captured above pictures. Don’t ask me what he’s doing because I wouldn’t be able to tell you.

He says he was doing yoga!

I thought he was doing Kung Fu.

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning

In fact, it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

Sorry, I don’t normally break out in song but I thought it was fitting.


I really love the fact that I was able to capture the texture of the rocks and gravel in the carport. But what I love most about these pictures is that my nephew thought they were cool. Sometimes it isn’t the result that makes a picture great but the process it takes to get said results.

Thanks for reading…

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
