Today’s Holiday Pictures

Holiday Decorations

Thanksgiving is over so I can officially post holiday stuff now without people telling me it’s too early! This is my favorite time of year. I wish I didn’t have as much schoolwork so I could go out in the city and capture all of the holiday cheer in photographs. For now, here’s some decorations from years past to start off the season. Expect more holiday-themed posts in the near future!

Autumn Decorations

Hunters in the Snow

Here’s a bigger image of the picture hanging in my room:

Hunters in the Snow by Pieter Bruegel

Room at Home

It’s so cozy in there! I might post pics of my room at school too. Very different feel but I like them both.


A Colorful Patch

I like to take walks around my town, and almost every day I pass this garden center that has a really pretty patch of flowers right by the sidewalk. I admire it all the time, and the other day I forced my sister to come take pictures of it with me. We probably looked a bit strange, standing on the sidewalk of a busy road taking a bunch of pictures, but I’m glad I got these photos before the summer is over. It was really bright out, so the pictures aren’t the best, but I think they kind of look cool. I need to learn more about my camera so this doesn’t keep happening every time it’s really sunny out!

There’s a moth hiding somewhere in the next picture!

Speaking of flowers, here’s some really pretty ones from my backyard:

Bye for now!!

Roses

My friend got these roses and I decided to take a few pictures of them. I think these were the most beautiful roses I’ve seen in my 20 years…I didn’t edit any of the photos, they seriously looked this good!

Disney World Photos

Someone was playing the Bix Beiderbecke Pandora station at work the other day, and the music immediately reminded me of Disney World. Whenever my family goes to Disney World, we stay at a hotel on the Boardwalk. Even though the Boardwalk opened in the 1990s, it has an old-fashioned feel to it, which I love. There is a candy shop with things like big swirly lollipops, candy apples, cotton candy, etc., a little bakery, a dance hall–it just gives off that charming old fashioned vibe, you know what I mean? I had never heard of Bix Beiderbecke before the other day, but his 1920s jazz songs transport me back to that Boardwalk…I hope to go back again soon! Here’s one of his songs:

 

I think this is the perfect kind of music to have playing in the background if you’re working on something–it’s enjoyable, but not distracting. I’ve included some pictures from my family’s recent trip to Disney World (Photo cred to my dad). I tried to choose ones that give off the 1920’s boardwalk vibe. Hope you enjoy!

Old Photos

These are some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken over the past few years:

And there will be many more pictures to come in the future!
