Lovely Sun Flare

Though I'm out of town visiting family, when I saw that this week's I Heart Faces photo challenge was "sun flare," I knew that I just had to enter. I went out (at a seriously crazy hour) a couple weeks ago to have a play-around photo-shoot with a couple friends of mine (one other photographer and our friend [a musician] who wanted some promo shots for her new album). Anyway... I walked away with some absolutely lovely sun flare shots. Below is my favorite, and my entry for this week's photo challenge.

National Harbor

Have any of y'all ever been to National Harbor? It's on the Maryland side of the Potomac, just south of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the area and have a little time to kill.
I mean, there's still construction going on, and it's completely and totally created for tourists (in a city with a huge tourist draw to begin with), but there're definitely some fun things to see.
You can check out some gorgeous mosaics along the walls of the stairs leading down to the docks
Horse Mosaic
There're some fun animals
Good cupcakes (though if you're in the DC area, Georgetown Cupcake is really the place to go for cupcakes)
And there's this guy
I love him
Every time I pass by the National Harbor exit, I think about him and smile
I love how huge he is.
I think he's simply wonderful :)
So tell me, what delights are you currently loving?

Bloop Bloop

That's the sound of time plopping away without me. I've been going and doing and adventuring and trying my hardest to slow down and breathe :) Since pretty much everybody has posted a lovely Halloween post, I'll at least mention that we went to a Halloween/Goodbye party for our good friend Matt who moved to Pittsburgh today. We will certainly miss him, but I'm quite certain we'll see him again!

In other news, I've begun a grand adventure with one of my favorite people in the world.

Jenn and I have started a little photo blog in the vein of mintyforest. We've only just begun, but I'm loving it so far! Jenn's studying higher education at Oxford currently, so I'm thrilled to have a means of staying in frequent contact. Anyway... our new little project is at . We're still working out a few wrinkles, but I'd love for you all to go check it out :)
