Whenever I’m staying at home and feel like taking some photos, I use this time to practice with lighting and angles. Hope you enjoy them! ^_^
The first two photos were from a road trip to drop off my brother for his freshmen orientation, still can’t believe he’s about to start college. *o* He will study at Cal Poly Pomona majoring in Civil Engineering. The last three photos where from the San Francisco Bay Trail in San Mateo. You can actually see the planes from the SFO airport which is pretty cool. One of my friends came to visit and I’m very thankful that even though we separated during college, we still have a way of finding each other again. ^_^ ❤
This is most likely my last origami project for the summer 😦 sads. I’ve been wanting to change the flowers of this vase for the longest time and I’m really happy with how it looks now. It was the first time I tried branch bending; immersing branches into a mixture of hot water and a little bit of vinegar in periods of five minutes until it is easily bendable, then dipping the branch into cold water so it holds its form. Also for this set, I used a cherry blossom diagram from www.origami-resource-center.com.
Two of my closest friends know how to knit and crochet so we went on a little adventure to check out ImagiKnit in San Francisco (close to Dolores Park). I’m so happy that we went there and my friends came out of the store with something for themselves. ^_^ As a person who is a crafter too (my main craft is origami), it’s easy to find designs and diagrams online but it’s also nice to have a craft book to keep for your own collection.
