Jeans & a Tee DO happen in my life. But mostly only when I’m camping. Which is only about once a year. Which happened last weekend. And when the tee is actually the most perfect baseball shirt ever. Found it at Express and literally gasped when I saw it across the store. Back to camping… as you can see, I survived! I always wonder going into it, if I will come out breathing and in one-piece. There were some definite moments in which immersion in nature clashed with my shameless appreciation for convenience and comfort. For example, when using the shack of a bathroom, I reached for the toilet paper only to find a massive black spider and its prey under my fingers. Or when my perfectly plotted plan of curling my hair friday and having ideal 2nd curls saturday was put to ruin by way of a defcon 1 thunderstorm.
But I survived. And thrived I dare say, on the waves of good laughs and great times with Patrick and some dear friends who we went with.
All of these photos were taken with my Samsung Galaxy. I’m so very impressed with how it worked with the lighting so well. I put it on manual and increased the ISO some and somehow the camera evened out the shadowed and shining areas of the photos. In fact, I took 6 batches of engagement-like couple photos in this light with this camera and could not be happier about how they turned out. You’ll be seeing a bit of a sampling in my next post. Another strength in this camera is how vibrantly it captures colors. Every ounce of hue is harnessed and enhanced on the auto setting. Plus, I was able to upload a photo to Instagram, right from my Galaxy, in the middle of the woods. Boo. Ya.
