some pictures...

I took these for Nathan in downtown Gastonia. Also some of these are edited as you can probably tell...
We found a couple of really great places, like alleys with torn up plaster and stuff haha. I wish I had had a bigger memory card though because I could only take like 55 pictures with my lame little 32 meg card.

full view these, they look a lot better that way.

but this is the 'last week of school' and it's really busy, as was last week, so I haven't had a lot of time to post.

Anyway, Friday I got a lens and then went to a play (I didn't get to bring my camera but they didn't allow photography anyway). It was a really great play (despite a few parts...). I enjoyed it. Unfortunately my parents know how easy it is to get lost in uptown Charlotte, so they didn't let us go to Rita's lol.

So my camera is like really hard to use in manual mode...but I'm learning haha. Here are some pictures from it:

the hardest part about manual mode is getting the ISO speed right...that's why some of these are so noisy.

I know some of you have heard of them, but if not, CHECK THEM OUT. They're like Muse+Nevertheless+The Afters+Underoath+Becoming the Archetype. Basically pure awesomeness. If you have time, listen to their whole album all the way through. It's much better that way.
