Day 165 – 6.14.2011

I got some really exciting news today! I sent in a photo to the Whole Foods Charlottesville Food Photography Contest and found out my photo is a finalist! It’s been an inspirational couple of days – this surge of creative energy has been oozing out of me. I’ve been taking photos, playing around with the editing process,  – I even started writing, WRITING! It’s never been my form of expression (kind of sounds silly saying that on a personal blog) but I just needed to get thoughts out. It’s turning into an essay I may or may not publish. But I digress, the reception for the contest is tomorrow and I’m really excited to attend.

Below are the railroad tracks I walk over everyday when I walk to and from work, they looked beautiful under the Virginian sunset.

I was lucky enough to watch Cirque du Soleil’s “Alegria” while it was in town on Sunday. There are strict rules about photography inside the arena and during the performances (which were spectacular!) so shooting was a no-no. Snapped this one (with my camera phone) during intermission.
