This past Monday I had just gotten home from my two week vacation in Topsail with my best friend and her family. I was happy to be home and it was nice to see all of the fall colors.
I recently bought a new camera, it's an Olympus PEN E-P1. I'm really happy with it so far, I like the vintage style and it takes amazing pictures.
I thought I looked kind of nice that day so I decided to take some self-portraits and try out some of the filters on my new camera.
The two filters I tried in these are Grainy Film (the black and white) and Pin Hole.
This one doesn't have a filter but look how cool the camera is!
Later that evening Carol had Isabel and I come over to take some pictures of one of her tea tours for her self-run company, Steeple House Teas.
Isabel and I had a lot of fun and we took quite a few nice pictures. If you'd like to see more from that particular shoot we should have a post about it soon here: http://twogirlswithacamera.blogspot.com/
I was wearing monster socks that my mom bought me a while back and I like them a lot so of course I had to take a picture.
One perk of taking pictures for a tea tour, is that you get to drink tea when you're done!
It was a lovely day and I was so glad to have the opportunity to do a shoot for a friend.
To wind down at the end of the day I watched a movie called Submarine while going through the pictures I took. I guess you could say it was an off beat coming of age film that was set in Wales. I would give it a 6.5/10 I liked parts of it a lot, the scenery was beautiful and the soundtrack was great but some of the scenes were very bizarre.
Anyway, thats how I spent my Monday. Hopefully I will have a post about my vacation on Topsail island for you soon! Until next time.
