Today I am going to share some flood pictures with you. I know some of you are probably thinking "What the hell does she know about flooding? She is in Manhattan." Or maybe you aren't. Well, it's true. I have not seen any flooding. I'm just waiting for that one giant tidal wave to come and knock out the whole city. Regardless, I do have some pictures for you of the mighty Mississippi eating my hometown.
I was born and raised in the Quad Cities. See the map here. It's that lump when Iowa gets on top of Illinois. Dirty. Anyway, they really don't have it that bad there but enough that my mother was inspired to take these photos from her office in Davenport Iowa.
Mmmm that lovely brown water I grew up with. No wonder I was so intrigued by the Bahamas.
Last night my friend and old roommate of four years took a big risk for a chick and chopped off her long hair into a sexy little bob. The excitement of the hot new hair inspired her to make a visit to my place with Bellinis. The offering of alcohol was a smart way to get us started on a fashion shoot. I didn't upload the photos of me yet but I wanted to share this picture I took of her.
My crappy digital camera can be difficult to work with when I want natural light. It goes all blurry on me. In this case it turned out looking like an oil painting which I really like. It's a little bit jazz. There are several others that are not blurry like this but I am fond of how this turned out.
Hey, like my new wine glasses? They were one of my birthday gifts from the boyfriend.
