You know who's not missing it? Shannon.
She already knows what she wants to be when she grows up. She wants to be a professional photographer. She took beginning photography last semester (first semester of freshman year), and now she's in intermediate photography. She's also taking a drawing class.
Next comes advanced photography, next year...which somehow involves having your own digital camera with manual controls. A Sony Cybershot point and shoot will not work in this situation. Send money please!
Right now they are using film cameras. As in, cameras that still use film. Did you know those even still existed? Well, they do. In pawn shops. Which is where we got her a pretty nice Nikon. I don't know what we're going to do about next year. Hopefully things will be looking up, financially speaking, by then.
Once again, I can't stay on topic. Today's picture is a photo of a mug that Shannon painted at a place called My Art Workshop. They have ceramic stuff you can paint, wooden stuff you can paint, mosaic stones, sand art, and other cool stuff. I found out about it when Kylie went there for a birthday party.
Shannon took this plain white ceramic mug, painted it gold, and free-handed a cherry blossom tree all over it. I was kind of amazed, and so were the people that worked there.
Do you think that left-handed people are just naturally more creative? That whole, right brain, left brain thing? All I know is that she spent a good 90 minutes on this, and if the store wasn't closing, I'm sure it would have been longer. Color me jealous. I'd be lucky just to be able to paint the thing a solid color.
