Among The Flock

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

When I saw this cropped sweater at H&M, I knew it was fate. I instantly freaked out and called my mom over (so happy I get to shop with her again! yay!) and basically shoved it in her face. I have always had a thing for tacky pink yard flamingos, and from that a love for flamingos in general began to grow. While they are by no means my favorite animal, I am obsessed with objects that have to do with them. There is a set of two prints from the 70's in one of my fav antique shops downtown that have flamingos on them and they have so got my name on them as soon as I get paid. Oh yes, they shall be mine! For now, the sweater will do.


Does anyone want to help name my flamingos? I have two of these lovelies in my yard (I always envisioned them as lovers), but no matter what I have named them over the years, I can't ever remember their names! Any suggestions? Let me know!

Also, I have giant news! I was recently (extremely lucky) to receive a Canon 5D Mark III from my parents as a graduation gift! Oh yes, it is crazy. I can't wait to take some photos with it! I have some maternity photos to share with you (probably tomorrow) that I shot the other day with my Rebel T2i and totally love. The new camera came just in time though, to be honest. My Rebel has been acting up like nobody's business and it'll be nice to use a full sensor camera. My 50mm is so different on it vs on the cropped sensor of the Rebel. The fact that it's less zoomed is actually pretty sweet, but will take some getting used to. I, of course, snapped some test shots of Lady Foot and Chai, so maybe I'll share those if you're interested in random pet photos. I'll definitely let you know when I post my first photos taken with the new baby. 

And lastly, I have some awesome news to share with you!!! Because you guys have been so amazing and are using my ryapiexoxo code to get your first month of Rocksbox *free*, they have extended it for another whole month! Yep!

    1. Yes it has been a learning experience for sure! Even though it's still a Canon, all the buttons are in different places, so it's definitely throwing me a bit, but I can already see such a difference in the photos!
