I love Christmas at home!! Claytons do it right.

paris in fall

This coming fall, I am planning on going to Paris on a BYU Study Abroad, so let's hope I get in... But in hopes, I just looked up the course options, and I am in heaven!!

Here they are:
obviously French
French Civilization through Photography (yay!!)
Francophone Culture (walk around Paris, and learn their culture through experiencing it)
LDS Church in a World Setting
European Fine Arts (we go to the Louvre and study the art... unreal!)

Needless to say, I am incredibly excited and stoked!!

Recently, I came upon this amazing photographer who has done some amazing projects.
This in the project titled "In the American West," where he traveled across the West, capturing images of interesting people. He would would go to many random places, whether coal mines or old car shops, to photograph people that seemingly come with a story. Look up his stuff, it's fascinating and brilliant.

This is another piece that I just love. Maybe it's because it's in Paris, but does it matter!! It is beautiful.

first snow

First snow!! As I sat in the library yesterday preparing for the lovely event we know fondly as finals, I looked out of the window to see soft and delicate snow fall on campus. Many aren't too happy to see this cold condensation again, but maybe because I never grew up with it, I am excited!! Hot chocolate, warm blankets, socks and boots, big jackets... how can anyone complain with these?? But one reason for the joyous response to the layer of snow is a little thing I like to call skiing. I have already purchased my ski pass and, soon, I shall also be purchasing the Costco sized box of handwarmers.

So to those who are sad to see the new season, I say "bring on the snow!!"


Provo does boast some pretty spectacular sunrises. Here are some from the Utah lake:

Now bring on the snow!!

it's happening

As I am writing my final paper for one of my classes, I am starting to use my French vocabulary instead of the obvious, and required, English language I know and love.

Dad and Professor Dickamore must be very pleased.

So here is my last photography project of the semester. My dear sister Elizabeth was kind enough to be my subject, and here are a few.

Isn't she gorgeous. Thanks again Elizabeth and Jonny for your help!!
