Two Things

Okay, I know this is fully two weeks late now, and I know I stole some elements from Kim, but this is a preview of my Peace Quest poster, please have mercy on me. Come on, it's my birthday!

It looks better in person. Also, for extra brownie points (Please forgive me, Oh Great Needles!) here is a preview of my ultra-kick-ass bookmark, which took me several straight hours to make, and totally from scratch, btw.

i come bearing late assignments

first is my "a is for".
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
in this case, a is for "are you kidding me?!" haha and his body is kind of bent in the shape of an a. i love street performers.
and now for my juggling assignment. i believe juggling involves a lot of balancing and keeping up what's being juggled.
you can definitely juggle yourself, when you're climbing and swinging yourself about, and that's my interpretation of it. =)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

i definitely realized i enjoy photographing people in motion the most out of everything. getting good shots is so satisfying.
