Make My Day: Ode To The B&W Photo

 Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

Things aren’t always black & white… or are they? If you couldn’t already tell by my recent Instys, I’ve been REALLY into black and white photography as of late. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s Fall and I’m so over the bright brights of summer. Maybe it’s that my eye is always drawn to the juxtaposition of black and white highlights. Or… maybe it’s just the fact that black is my fav color, or rather lack of color [sorry. always has been. always will be.] Whatever the case may be… I’m into it.

I love photography. You’ll rarely see me without a camera around my neck. I never studied it which is probably why I’m constantly taking photos, learning new techniques, and striving to become better. Photography is so subjective which, to me, is the beauty of it. I think Warhol said it best…

This weekend I laid low [which was exactly what I needed]. I played around with some new g-free recipes [coming soon ;) ] , took a beautiful run through GG park with my ‘niece’ [<–she’s a Jack Russell BTW…  girl can run], babysat my nephew [can you say slumber party??], cuddled with my pup [DUH], watched some Halloween movies to get into the spirit,  and of course… snapped a few hundred pics.

Some weekend highlights via black & white photos… of course!!

So  ya, it’s Fall. The most wonderful time of the year. Summer’s tons of fun, don’t get me wrong… but there’s just something about Fall! Sweater weather, the smell of rain, hot tea, candy corn, pumpkin everything, boots, boots, boots… and not to mention, Halloween [and my Bday] are right around the corner.

Here are some Fall favies that made my day. I may have gone a little crazy at Targé… but I’m not sorry about it!

A new planner and colorful pens. I may no longer be a student… but Fall still seems like the perfect time to get my shiz together.

The cutest coat as seen on @TargetDoesItAgain. I scored one for myself & one for my sis [twinning]! Don’t hate me but it’s sold out basically everywhere.

Some spooky sticky notes & page markers.. Rest assured I will be putting these on everything for the next month.

           And to top it all off… the sun setting over the bay. The view from our back deck is pretty freaking epic. So blessed!

So… what were your day makers?
