Spring has arrived in Washington DC. Jeff is always telling me that I need to take more landscape photos (I almost always prefer photos with people in them), so I grabbed my camera and walked south from our temporary rental in Dupont Circle toward the cherry blossoms and monuments. I’m glad I went.
Sarah and David made the trip from New York City to East Lansing last summer for their wedding at the Kellogg Center. Sarah is in theater, and it was fun to see the energy that she, David and their friends brought to the day (especially when it came time to set up the photo booth at the reception). Thanks again to both of you for letting me and my team be a part of such a wonderful day.
Every now and then, I like to challenge myself to take self portraits. It’s my chance to reflect on who I am and practice a few photography techniques on myself. I’ve been watching a little Creative Live throughout the weekend, and I wanted to focus on connection with the eyes.
I’m currently living in Washington DC on a temporary adventure that Jeff and I are calling our “study abroad in the US.” We had an opportunity to live in a beautiful fully furnished condo in Dupont Circle until the end of August, so we rented out our house in Michigan (cat and all), packed a few suitcases and flew to DC in December. Since we’ve been here, I’ve thrown myself into classes. I’ve taken trapeze classes (you can check out my trapeze video below), a raw/vegan cooking class and a screen printing class so far, and I plan to take others this spring and summer.
I’m looking forward to getting back to Michigan, but I’m enjoying living in the moment while I’m here. It’s amazing how your perspective of a place will change when you know it’s temporary. I hope to take this attitude back to Michigan with me and fully enjoy all that Michigan has to offer rather than telling myself that I’ll “do that someday.”
