A few friends asked me to take some photos at a wine tasting they were hosting. The wine was Timbrus under Purcari Estate. The oenologist who helps create the wines is Spanish Manuel Ortiz Martinez was also at the event.
I nearly jumped out of my socks – its not clear to me if I was wearing socks at the time but if I was – then I jumped out of them. I almost felt like a real-life photographer at this party. It was so awesome.
This was my first time actually taking more focused pictures of people and it was actually really fun. People actually posed for me and that gave me this feeling of great excitement.
I took some photos at a wine party recently. These are small businesses in Moldova.
I keep my camera in my car, so if the mood hits me I will take photos during lunch. I think I’m going to do a series of abandoned buildings. As I would have a ton of material. Life is a little sticky at the moment, so these are my distractions.
And two random self portraits taken with my phone.
In March I went to Germany to see Hot Husband during his region’s training exercise at one of the air force bases. It was my first foray into official spouse territory, which no one tells you is scary as fuck (50% marriage being generally scary). Growing up around the military gives you an understanding of things, but I often feel like I’m in uncharted territory with the marines. (One would think I would understand that being born into a certain community is vastly different to voluntarily joining it, but I’ve a thick skull.)
On the bright side, I got to hop around Germany in Kaiserslautern and Heidelberg. Naturally, I took photos.
Spring is back after a rather intense snow storm. I’ve been working on my photography and found the snapseed app to be pretty cool, but editing seems to take more time now. Not a bad thing. Although I sometimes want to share faster than I can edit.
