If home is where the heart is...

...then my home is in Vermont.

Ever leave a place and feel like you should still be there? That is exactly how I feel every time I leave our old farm in Vermont. A few snapshots from a day that was too icey to ski (or a day I just wanted to enjoy our house instead of the slopes).

The Barn

Pond Reeds

Night Sky over the House

Stars over the Barn

Can't get enough of skies that lack the light pollution that plagues New Jersey.

Remember that time...

I made a New Year's Resolution I couldn't keep? Story of my life.

Anywho moving on. Sometimes I see photos I took and I don't really like them and then I come back a year and half later and wonder why I did not love it from the start. Our tastes and styles change and thus is the story for these lovely little snapshots from India.

Money money money.

 Currently the background on my computer:

 Beans! Speaking of which I'm working on growing sprouts at this very moment. If that's a success I'll write about it. If I never mention it again either it failed miserably or it worked and dirty sprouts made me die of E. coli.

That's my foot. Which seems really neat until you've walked in my shoes... literally. Those shoes had holes in the bottom and looking back I'm truly surprised I didn't have some parasite make a home in the ball of my foot.

It's Electric

Where in the world have I been. Well actually I went to Paris but that's a story for another day. I tried my hand at lightning photography and about 60 photos in finally figured out just how to make it work. Manual mode, F/22 ISO 100, bulb mode, exposed until I saw lightning. The shutter stays open for as long as you tell it too so there are a couple rules: you need a remote, a tripod/steady surface, and it can't be too light out or you'll just get a white photo. Also, you need to be seeing the actually strikes, just flashes doesn't really work. I took these photo from my bedroom window (don't get struck by lightning people!).

Usmle owns me

I'm studying for my boards on June 14th. This is all I have. iPhones take good photos too.

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com

In order to purge my body of a whole month of indulging in whatever food my boyfriend was craving (Five Guys, Thai take-out, Pizza "Pie") I bought a bunch of fruit. This pomegranate had been sitting in my fridge for a while. I hadn't gotten around to eating it because, frankly, I had NO idea how to cut/serve/eat a pomegranate. Then divine intervention in the form of a facebook newsfeed post: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ7dk9nDR-k <-- This guy is super happy about pomegranates but his method works and I finally got to have some of this deliciousness!

So this is my first entry for P52 Weekly Photo Challenge! The theme this week is hungry! Check out the other submissions here.
