Hobbies

Over the last couple of years since I have graduated from college, I have found myself trying to develop new talents and hobbies- this is probably because I'm a bit of a geek and actually really miss school and learning. Well, the other day I read my friend's post about hobbies and related very much to it. I often feel like I want to do everything right now and do it all well. Also, something Lacey points out, since there are so many things I want to do, I have a really difficult time deciding what I want to do right now. Unfortunately, I usually take so long trying to decide what to do that I end up doing nothing - and by nothing I mean watch tv.

Lately the hobby that has been winning out is photography. I really don't consider myself super good or anything, I just really enjoy seeing the beauty around me and trying to capture it in a picture. Johnny has been kind enough to indulge this new hobby. He went with me as I went arou
nd downtown Provo taking pictures. He also went with me to Vivian Park, up Provo Canyon, were we took a few pictures.

In the beginning of the formation of this new hobby, I was hesitant to edit the pictures because I didn't quite understand that photography is more than just taking pictures it is also editing the picture- whether is just be a little red eye touch up or some artistic touch. Anywho, I admit that my pictures looked better once I did a little editing. Here are a few that I have tried my hand at. Hope you enjoy them!
