Untitled, because I have no idea what to call it. It is about a few different things!

Here is one of the few post I have done on photography on my photography blog. XD The one with the longest title too! :D
this is the post in which I drool over random photography things. But first.......;
How many more times do I have to say that I hate Internet Explorer? And not only because they have no spell check. It is soooooo slow!!!!!!!!!!!! Yucky ick yuck.
You know what? There are some really crazy new zoom thingys out there now! It is awesome!  I want one sooooo bad! But first I need a new camera. Heeheehee...
Superzoom specialist Tamron announced the development of its most ambitious lens yet, the characteristically snappily-titled AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro. Designed exclusively for digital SLRs with APS-C sensors, this optic offers a 35mm-equivalent range of 28-419 mm, perfect for owners of megazoom compacts looking to upgrade to an SLR, and incorporates the company's 'Vibration Control' optical image stabilisation system. To achieve the spectacular zoom range (billed as the longest in the world 0_0 wow.),Tamron has used all its design nous, including the use of aspheric elements and low dispersion glass to keep chromatic aberration under control. Isn't that awesome?! I think so...
And here it is.... epicness.
I was reading my Photography magazine last night when I came across an article on this dude, I love him!!!!!! He is very cool. ^_^ He did all of these:
This is probably my favorite. It is so interesting, and every time you look at it, you find something you did not notice before. :D Plus, I really like the way the street looks. ^_^ All shiny. And the clouds. I love clouds. :D
This one is interesting, but not my favorite. Maybe it's just that I think it is kind of boring. :P
I thought this Tetris one was pretty awesome.
This is the first one that I saw.

I have seen this one before, but never really thought about it, other then the fact that it is cool. I just thoguht that someone had drawn or painted it. :P
Prett neat, huh? he has some really weird ones, but these are my favorites of all the ones that I have seen.
What is so cool about it is that looking at Erik Johansson's photo minipulations you may think of them as digital art and not actual photographs. But in fact, he explains, photography is one of the most important parts of his process- even if he uses the photos as raw material for his art. He said he began learning digital photography at fifteen. He lives in Sweden and is now 25. He said that photography is his way of expressing an idea. He will sketch the idea and then use photography and software to make it happen.
He was a former engineer student that has focused the past three years to optical illusions, using the realizim of photography to trick the eye. The pictures he makes require hundreds of photographs and may take him from three months to two years to make!  He was inspired by M.C Escher. :D He'll make some sketches, plan his idea and begin taking pictures. It is more dificult then it sounds. He will combine the photos, you have to make sure you capture your elements in the same lighting, the same angle and even the same shadows! To get multiple perspectives on a scene, H'll shoot from different elevations. Using up to 100 layers, he adds photos in peice by piece. Certain objects require a lot of masking, such as with the water splashing out of the picture frame one. After that, he adjusts color tempatures across the layers, and then fine-tunes the contrast. He said that he loves the fact that he can imagine a drawing and then make it look exactly real. Digital photography and editing lets him do this. Isn't he sooooooooo cool?!?!?!?!
We are watching Finding Nemo. Are you doing anything for New Years? I wish we were, but alas. we are not. :P Just sitting here, eating junk food and watching movies. :) Wow, I have not put very many faces in this post!
This is a totaly different subject:
This mornign as I made myself some toast I was trying to figure out what I have been wanting to do lately. And I figured it out! I want to fly! In an airplane of course, but fly. I went once in a small airplane thing and will never ever ever forget that day. It was so awesome. I could see so far and I loved it. I had never flown before and it was wonderful. ^_^
Have a nice New Years!

I am very angry at the.... umm.... well, actually, I am not sure what I am angry at. This is the second time I have done this post because the last one that I did, all the pictures didn't come up, what did was this stop sign that said that I had stolen the picture or something. I did not! I um.... took them off the internet when I searched them on the images place on Swagbucks. Gr.... and I actually put quite a bit of time into this post... It took me quite a while to find them all again. :/ :/ :/ You do not want to meet me up some dark alley right now. >:/ 
p.s Is is that my posts are getting boring or that everyone has no time..... I want comments! Pleeeaase? Comment saying whatever you want! Whatever! :D I bet I sound really desperate. XD

Irene and I.

I am like super happy right now because I got a one hundred dollar sweat shirt for thirteen dollars! w00t! :D It was from Aeropostale and I love it. ^_^ I also got two pairs of slacks and a cute little coat thing for church. All my dresses are too short and cold, so I had nothing good for winter, but now I do! Yay! :D I am typing with my fingers all taped up right now because I am trying to break my habbit of biting my nails. :P I broke it a few times when I was younger, but the only reason I did was because I wanted that Hello Kitty cup so badly. Now I have a real reason to, the modeling job! :D
My little sister and I are bestest friends, and have been since we were born, Partners in crime as we called ourselves and had lot's of fun being mischievous.. From pretending to throw apples up on the curb in front of the neighbor kids to sleeping during clean up time, we stuck up for each other to the bitter end. When one of us got caught, the other tried to get them out of a punishment until there was nothing more to do, then we would confess our part and get the punishment together. Yep, we were pretty close. ^_^
This is not the best picture of us, but there are not many of us together... :P

Now for some more recent ones:

Being silly with marshmallows.

There are not many pictures of us together because I am usually the one taking the pictures!
Even though we still have many funny pranks going through our heads we don't put them into practice anymore, although, we would love to get an ocaasional prank in on Fiona. Well, Shay is telling me to hurry up. So,
<3 <3 <3

Puddles, the Mall and Grotto

There have been some epic puddles lately. Epic ones. :D
And thanks to my awesome brother I could jump in them without killing my converse, like I used to. :P
Irene actually took most of them. :D

That puddle was pretty epic and I got pretty wet. :D

The choir that my sister is in sang at a place called the Grotto.
They had to sing for 45 minutes striaght. I would have been soooo tired of singing by the end of it if I were them. :P

The pictures are really nasty, but the  lighting was terrible for picture taking. :P :P :P
The Church they sang in was very pretty.
But I couldn't help but notice mess ups in the sheet rock in some places. :P That is what happens when you are a contractors daughter I guess. XD
I am pretty sure I spelled 'contractor' wrong, but there is no spell check. :P

It was night and incredibly wet. It rained and rained and rained. I was so soaked it was not even funny. Actually, it was funny, I was dripping and my sweat shirt looked like it was supposed to be dark blue intead of light. <:D
Forrest and Andy.

I said this tree looked like a mushroom.
But other people said that it did not very firmly, so I did not say it again.

I was really glad that I wore my boots and not my converse as was previously planned. :D
they did not look very good with my outfit, but I did not really care, my feet were warm and dry. Which is more then some other people could say. XD
I went to the mall with some of my friends yesterday and got this awesome Converse t-shirt. It is gray and has three pairs of Converse on it. It has these weird sleeves that have holes to put your thumbs through that I love. :D I also got a necklace that has letters on it that spell "love" and a pair of heart earrings. I do not have my ears peirced, but hope to get them done some time soon. The necklace and earrings were both $1.50 each  and I figured that was a good price. :)
The last (but not least) thing I got was an Aeropostale sweat shirt with my gift card I got for Christmas. It is the same one that I am wearing in the puddle pictures at the top. ^_^

On Christmas we had Hadley, kake and their family over, as I think I already said. But we went for a walk and took pictures. Here are a few that I took! :D
Kerilynn (or Kake) who is soooo cute!

Hadley, taking a picture of me... taking a picture of her.
Kerilynn and my boots. Mine look odd and glowy. :P
Our crazy socks! Awesome!!! :D
A car that I liked. :D
My Mom swears that it is our old car that we sold. XD
Hadley, being pretty in her new coat and carrying her awesome camera, Parker.
I will steal a few of hers ( I hope she does not mind.) and put them here also! :D
Mine, Kerilynn and Fiona's boots. :)

Irene, who I think could model too, but needs to grow some more. :P

Yeah, so you can see she is pretty (really) good at photography. :D
Back to mine.... a few that I almost forgot to put in...:
I like this picture:
It is kind of odd. :D
Irene... again.
A rotton apple thingy.
I tried to play chess today, for like the third time in my life, I failed. And we did not even finish the game! I think I did badly. :P But it was fun! :D

My family is watching Ice Age. I love this movie!

Right now we are stuck using internet explorer and I hate it!!!!!!!!!! HATE HATE HATE it!!!!!!!!!
I don't really have anything more to say......... bye!
<3 <3 <3 <3 You all! <3 :D :D :D

Christmas :)

I had an amazing Christmas! I don't want to brag, but I want to put pictures up of all my favorite presents. ^_^
I got some awesome knee high socks with really fat pengiuns on them, but I wore them and so they are dirty. :P I got lot's of really good things, but don't want to make this post really really long. :) My camera has been taking really blury pictures, so they will not be that good. :/
First, I got a beautiful Romy dress from my older sister Shay. I love it!
A bottle of perfume stuff from Hadley. A really blury picture...
 Really cute stationary from Kake
 Hand warmer things from Beka, that say "Rock" on them. Awesome!!!!
 A GIR t-shirt from my mom and dad from Hot Topic
 Astronomy and Photography magazines from my mom and dad
 Aeropostale t-shirt from my little sister Irene
Pretty necklace from Shay

And then!!!!!!!!!!!! (drum roll) my rubber boots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forrest got them for me! He is epic!
Yeah, I am wearing my GIR t-shirt right now. ^_^
I bet I spelled a bunch of things in this post.... We have no spell check any more and so I have to try to do everything from my brain, which happens to be fried from the stress of Christmas, lack of sleep and excitment today. :P Yeah, I am being kind of ditsy (if I spelled that right) right now...

Tomorrow is Sunday and I am soooo not ready for church, I will most likely wear my new dress, which takes care of what I am going to wear, but other then that I am so clueless as to what to do. :P
 We had Hadley, Kerilynn and thier family over for a few hours and we had an EPIC silly string war. It was so awesome. :D
It was really funny getting up this morning because I jumped out of bed and ran into the living room thinking "Christmas! Christmas! Christmas!" When I was suddenly knocked out of my 'daze' by getting hit by a nerf gun bullet. My dad whipped aroung carrying a Nerf gun and yelling "you're up! You're up! Presents!" After waiting for eveyone else to get up he walked around with that big gun talking. Finally he got bored of waiting and went and shot everyone until they woke up and went into the living room as well. I think he was more excited for Christmas then I was! :D
<3 <3 <3
Elisa.:) :) :)
Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Christmas music

It is not even Christmas day and I am already sick of Christmas music. :P The only song that I am not tired of is this one:
I like other versions of it too, but this is one of my favorite ones. :P

I am really excited because I might be able to go see Tron with some of my very best friends. ^_^
Right now my little brothers and sisters are watching Galaxy Quest. It is soooo funny! :D I had not seen it in a while, then my dad got it for like 50 cents at some used movie store and we watched it. That sentence does  not make very much sense....
I found this very funny.

Could you tell I don't really have anything to talk about?
I finished my John Wayne shrinky-dink picture, It does not really look like him any more, his face got kind of squished when I baked it. :P That made me kind of sad. :'/
Since I have nothing else to say, then I will tell you a few things I could not live without:
1. Hand Sanitizer

2. Jello:
3. Marshmallows:
4. My Bible:   Actually mine is pink...
5. My camera:

My friends:
Yeah, that is not all, but unless I want to put you all to sleep, then I should go. :D
