Janterm: Paris

Since I published the pictures from London a couple weeks ago, I figured I shouldn’t leave Paris out. While we studied abroad for Janterm, we had a weekend off. Mollie, Hannah, Brittany and I took an EasyJet flight to Paris. This was my third time in the city, but it was refreshing to experience it with some first-timers. Plus, we were on our own agenda, which made everything even better.

I really played with my shutter speed in Paris, and got some of my favorite pictures from it.

Londontown

How is it that I never put my London pictures here? Well, it’s been almost a year, so here’s a little throwback.

Last Janterm (a mini semester at Samford during January), I was lucky enough for my family to fund a couple of the best weeks of my life. I got to study abroad with a bunch of my friends in London, and was even there for New Year’s Eve. We watched the fireworks over the Thames River, right next to Big Ben.

I can’t think of a better place to study art and theatre. I saw a total of eight plays/musicals and went to a ton of museums and historical buildings.

I also set out to make a video of each day’s adventures. It was a lofty goal, and I still haven’t finished, but I’ll include what’s done below.

Andrew & Alexis

I took these pictures back in March (I can’t believe how long ago that was). Andrew asked me, Hannah and Nathan, along with his best friend Tim and Alexis’s cousin Cameron, to help him propose to Alexis. First of all, what an honor to be a part of this day! We had a great time being “found” as Alexis went through the scavenger hunt Andrew planned for her around Sewanee. He was waiting at the last station–this huge cross on an awesome overlook–to pop the question. It couldn’t have been more picturesque, and he added their silly style throughout the hunt.

Bid Day 2013

I got to attend Bid Day (also known as “Squeal”) at Samford University on Monday, Sept. 13. These pictures should explain the reason for the nick name for those of you who have never been to a Samford Bid Day. You can’t help but smile at the pure joy on the girls’ faces!

Marketing Farmers

For my Public Relations class, Leslie Graf and I took a little trip down I-65 to check out the Alabama Farmers Market. We are doing a project for them, so we are literally marketing for farmers. Wordplay! But I digress. It was open-air, with friendly people and good-looking fruit & veggies (even though I don’t normally think vegetables look tasty).  The man working there was so fun to talk to. He said he had been working there since 1957, “before you were even thought of!” He attempted to juggle apples for us. I ended up buying those Alabama Grown Golden Delicious apples and I ate two in the hour after I left the market. It’s a miracle my body didn’t reject them after all the bad food it’s used to getting.

Tailgate

I know it’s barely even summer break now, but you’re crazy if you can honestly say you aren’t excited for tailgate season to come back around.

Lomography

Lomography is a trendy type of photography that has become a world-wide phenomenon since it first exploded onto the photography scene in the 1990s. Below are some pictures that I took using both my DSLR and photoshop, and some free apps I downloaded to my iPhone. I carried both around with me for one day and took pictures from my hip, for the most part.

Rawr Fingasaurs

In photography class, we did a Dollar Tree challenge. We got one item and did a photoshoot with it. Luckily, I found these FingaSaurs and they were pretty great. Mr. Beeson even enjoyed modeling them for me.

Step Sing 2012

Step Sing 2012 came to an exciting close on February 18 in Samford University‘s Wright Center. Dudes-A-Plenty, an all-male independent group, took home their third consecutive Sweepstakes trophy.  DAP’s show was titled “Rush” and the men portrayed miners during the gold rush of ’49. IGnite, a new group of independent and greek women, won first runner-up for their Nun-themed show.  Second runner-up was awarded to Zeta Tau Alpha who performed as skeletons.
