Better design, better photos, better blog.

After one year of posting photos here on Photo Shtuff, I’ve decided to transfer over to a brand new blog, titled Walking Through Carthage. When I first started Photo Shtuff, my intention was to use photo blogging as a way to improve my photography skills. I never would have guessed how much I was going to learn in one year. Now that I’ve hit the one-year anniversary mark, I want to start over again. Walking Through Carthage is going to be the next chapter in my journey to become a better photographer. I sincerely hope to see you there :)

I also have to give a big THANK YOU to all of the people who have kept up with me here on Photo Shtuff. Your comments and support have truly meant the world to me!

One Year Anniversary!!!

12 photos for 12 months of blogging.

I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I started blogging!!! That is absolute craziness to me! In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to keep it up. But now I can’t imagine going more than a week without posting photos! The purpose of creating this blog was to help me become better at taking photographs, and I’m happy to say that it worked. I’ve grown so much in the past 12 months and I’m really proud of the work that I’ve created for this blog. So cheers! I can’t wait to see what the next 12 months bring!

Also, I have one more big piece of news: I’m heading to New York City tomorrow night! Just me, my camera, and the city! Get ready to see all sorts of photographs when I get back! :)

Mojo’s Jungle

So believe or not, I took all of these photos at the LA County Fair! Mojo’s Jungle (the area behind the Home and Garden Pavilion) is full of nature trails to explore. I felt like I was hiking along a mountainside instead of attending a fair!

I have been SO inspired lately by Natsumi Hayashi’s levitation photos! Her photo blog is simply amazing! I shot a few test photos earlier tonight with my cousin, but I definitely plan on doing a full on photo shoot in the near future.

I shot all of these photos in my backyard after work earlier today. Two weeks from now, I’ll be shooting photos in NEW YORK! Let the countdown begin :)

LA County Fair II

How do I even begin to describe the EPICNESS that was the LA County Fair a couple of nights ago?

1) THE FOOD!!! For years I’ve wanted to try a t0rnado potato, but I had no clue where to find one in southern California. Well, apparently there is now a food truck that specializes in this delicious treat. Trust me on this one. You WANT a tornado potato! Later on I also devoured a couple of braised pork sliders from a food truck called Piaggio Gourmet on Wheels. I’m salivating just thinking about those sliders. Oh how I love food at the fair :)

2) ONEREPUBLIC!!!! The set list was amazing. Ryan Tedder’s voice was amazing. The concert as a whole was just…AMAZING. They even performed a brand new song that’s going to appear on their next album!

The entire evening was pretty much about food and OneRepublic, and it was freakin’ incredible.
