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.
193/365: Last Known Surroundings on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Sorry to bombard you all today with so many uploads. I hope I haven’t been too annoying.
I haven’t attempted anything conceptual for awhile…mostly because I’m fresh out of ideas. This is part of the magic mini series I started a couple months ago.
I parked a little farther from the park than I intended to…I got a lot of stares as I walked past park goers with my equipment, magician attire and bag of props. I got even more stares as I walked back to my car completely covered in flour…

178/365: Pyro on Flickr.Via Flickr:Single book of matches,Gonna burn what’s standing in the way,
Roaring down the mountain, Now they’re calling on the fire brigade.
Named after my all time favorite Kings of Leon song. I’m listening to it right now.I BOUGHT MY 5D MARK II TODAY.
 I can’t believe I’m finally going to hold my dream camera in my hands. Making the switch to Canon after shooting Nikon for 5 years is a little scary but I’m so so so excited. Someone pinch me. :)

168/365: Champagne Supernova on Flickr.Via Flickr:Someday you will find me 
Caught beneath the landslide 
In a champagne supernova in the sky 
Someday you will find me 
Caught beneath the landslide 
In a champagne supernova 
A champagne supernova in the sky 
Wake up the dawn and ask her why 
A dreamer dreams, she never dies
Oasis
Time crunch…more flowers for you.

153/365: Look Into the Air on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I was up in La Jolla and ventured to Mt. Soledad just before the sunset. Crawled into some bushes to escape spectators…normal.
That view is to die for. Mountains to the left, ocean to the right. :)

Ok here’s the real picture for today. 
This is my sister Kaitlyn. I took photos for her graduation announcements today. I also met her adorable kitten, Chowder, for the first time and haven’t stopped playing with him since. Maybe he’ll be in tomorrow’s picture. :)

Via Flickr: I haven’t shot anything in awhile…nothing since discontinuing my 365 project. Major fail. Felt good to be back behind the camera. :) This was the largest dandelion I have ever laid eyes on.

Musical Inspiration: 1234- Feist

Braved the bees for this!

Oh, you’re changing your heart
Oh, You know who you are

Sweetheart bitterheart now I can’t tell you apart
Cosy and cold, put the horse before the cart

Those teenage hopes who have tears in their eyes
Too scared to own up to one little lie

Oh, you’re changing your heart
Oh, you know who you are

One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, or ten
Money can’t buy you back the love that you had then..

“Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed
And it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand
‘Cause I’m just a girl, little ‘ol me
Don’t let me out of your sight
I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights”

Hubba Hubba Bubba by P.E.N. Photography on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Day 6.Today was my first day of work. Filling out that work availbility sheet felt like I was signing away my soul for the summer. Long gone are the days of no responsibility.Feeling a little nostalgic for the good ‘ole little kid days, I walked into 7-11 today and went straight for the candy. Got myself a ring pop and some hubba bubba. 3 pieces of hubba bubba later, a sore jaw, and countless attempts to blow a decent sized bubble. Tah-da! No one’s going to burst my bubble now.
