Fall/Autumn Pictures!

Even More Photography On The Citadel

Howdy all,

To celebrate the fact that Fall lasted longer than a whimper this year, (last year we had a nice September and then the cold set in), Vanna and I went for a walk a couple of days ago to document the changing colours of the leaves.  We didn’t get many pictures, but it certainly was gorgeous. Still is, in fact; driving to Crosby today was worth it for the views alone. Anyway, here’s the slideshow.

 

In other news, I have a job! Well, almost. They still need to complete background checks (a slow process so far, my fault for being a foreigner) so I’m not going to say anything more until I have a confirmed start date. It’s very promising though. A great opportunity, and it doesn’t involve filing(!), so yeah, I’m happy.

I also applied for my second Bioware writer position earlier this month*. Although there…

First Vanna Post

Hello,

Since Alex will be busy this weekend, I feel pressured to do my first post.

I was going to do this perfect introduction to who I am, what I am doing with my life, etc. but I really couldn’t be bothered to do that today. Will do it laterish..

Instead I’m going to tell you about my weekend plans, because I know you’re all dying to know what they are!

Today I am driving up to Brainerd, MN for my evening shift at work. I’m currently in St. Paul, MN (just moved here yesterday night. More on that some other day). So I have a 2.5hr drive ahead of me. Woo..

My work schedule is pretty awesome: Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday night, and Sunday morning. Because I only work mornings and nights, my afternoons are completely free (which is the best time of the day for plans).

After my Saturday morning shift, I plan on driving up to Duluth, MN (where I have been the past month) to take autumn photos. The scenery in Northern Minnesota is absolutely breath-taking, and I haven’t been able to take any decent photos. (Camera battery was conveniently left 3hrs away at Grandma’s while I spent my last days in Duluth).
The only pictures of the fall colors in Duluth that I have are terrible and were taken while I was driving last weekend. I was desperate to document the beautiful colors, but had no time to pull over and take proper ones.

The pathetic results:ImageImageImage

Pretty obvious why I need different ones.

So that will be my big adventure for the weekend.
The rest of the time I will be bonding with my cats and dreading the long drive back to St. Paul.
I’ll get some pictures of my cats while I’m at it, since we seem to have a cat picture theme for this blog.

Sorry for the sloppy post, Alex! I’ll do better next time. Possibly.

Vanna.

Saturday Pictures (Minnesota in Fall)

I love my girlfriend’s photography. I’ve looked through some of her albums on her computer and it is really impressive. My personal favorite is landscapes and I’m not disappointed here.  Vanna has managed to capture Minnesota in every season. As I’ve only been here during the summer it is nice to see how things change when I’m not around.

Here are some pictures from Fall 11; a few months after I left last year. Isn’t it pretty?
