PAIGE NELSON

My name is Paige.

I'm an aspiring photographer with an insatiable curiosity and an appetite for the fantastic.

This blog is dedicated to my greatest passion- photography. All of the photos on here are mine unless otherwise stated.
Moult on Flickr.Via Flickr:
When birds change their feathers it’s called moulting. Moulting is a process done regularly by birds to replace old feathers with new, healthy feathers. 
That’s exactly where I am in my life right now. Out with the old, in with the new. :)

I think the most difficult part of this project is being consistently creative. Creativity only comes to me in spurts. But I guess that’s part of the challenge.

My body is going to punish me tomorrow for staying up so late to edit this. Closed at work tonight and going in again tomorrow morning…guh.
I like re-using props for the sake of seeing how much I’ve improved since I started…throw back Day 4.

All that Glitters by P.E.N. Photography on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Day 4. Musical Inspiration: Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love- Coldplay Not even the clouds can keep me down today. I’m floating, flying, soaring. I am so happy with where my life is taking me. Peacocks make me happy, colors make me happy. I could even hear the peacocks at Leo Carillo Ranch while I was taking this. :) Peacocks are deeply symbolic birds. In ancient Greece, the peacock was the patron bird of the goddess Hera. According to myth, she placed “eyes” on its feathers, symbolizing all-seeing knowledge and the wisdom of the heavens. Peacocks continually shed their feathers, symbolizing renewal and new life. I’ve been through a lot of turmoil this year, but it has made me stronger and smarter. I feel like my life is about to change, in the best way possible.

Peacock/Silhouette by P.E.N. Photography
 Ah, peacocks. The most glorious of all the birds. I don’t know what it is that I love so much about them. Maybe it’s that high pitched “MEAW” that sounds a little bit like a cat being strangled?
 I live close to a historic park called Leo Carillo Ranch where peacocks run amuck. Let me tell you. They certainly aren’t camera shy. There’s been times where I’ve chased them around all day until the ranch closed. I might be so fond of them because they make excellent photographic subjects.
