Chandler Day 356: Christmas at the Zoo

zooTonight I went with Hannah, Hillary and Josh to Christmas at the Zoo. I hadn’t ever been so it was really cool to go see. The lights were beautiful and it was impressive how many of them there were. The whole zoo was lit up and decorated. I had a lot of fun and I was with great people. It’s definitely something I’d do again.

Chandler Day 274: Ecolab Assistant

DSC05239Today I started my job as an Ecolab Assistant. I will be working in the Ecolab with Marian’s Restoration Ecologist. I’m really excited about this job. It will be a lot of fun getting to work in a place I love a lot and actually making an impact on the place. I’ll be doing all sorts of things from maintenance to helping lead school tours to removing invasive plants to taking pictures of everything in the Ecolab. I will get to learn a lot and get paid doing it.

Brandy Day250: It’s Like Riding A Bike

IMG_2628

Oddly enough the country roads are littered with bikers.  Seems the back roads are appealing to a lot of people.  It makes me so nervous traveling around bikers like this in packs or singly.  It’s even more dangerous once that sun begins to set, the hot roads give a deceiving reflection that is hard to see through.  A lot of people also take advantage of how obscure the country roads can be and fly down them at dangerous speeds, not only dangerous for them but others, animal & human alike.  If you like to take advantage of the back roads, windows down & music up,  just be safe and aware of darting people or animals.  I’ve seen cows jump fences ya know…and rumor has it they can jump over the moon!

*No I am not associated with anyone in this photo.  It’s just very dangerous*

Brandy Day249: U Turn

The sign says it.  As of late I feel like I’ve hit a dead end.  Not in a bad way, not at all.  Dead ends simply mean it’s time to check out a new road.  I’ve been back and forth on the idea of returning to school to focus on a study that seems so obvious.  A study where I would get to tie my love of photography & animals into days of awesomeness.

You know it’s time to check out new places when you can no longer drive down a road, any road  and find something to shoot or something fun to occupy your time.  A change of scenery would be awesome for my camera and healing for my soul.  I’ll keep ya’ll posted, but you know, the pictures say it all!

Chandler Day 196: Hendricks County Fair

DSC04050It’s not Summer if you don’t go to a county fair. At least that’show it is here in Indiana. This year I went to the Hendricks County Fair with Hannah and Cassie. It was a little weird this year because it was actually kind of chilly outside instead of being 98 outside. But it was a lot of fun. We walked all around, did some people watching, watched baby pigs race, ate fair food, and saw all the animals (the majority of the time spent in the goat barn).
