    Big Fan of this Safari

    by

    When it came to the Noir Photo Safari, Christine Loehr’s was by far one of my favorites. If it was a competition, her photos would have destroyed mine. All of her photos are very unique but all have a similar color scheme to bring them together. They have a very …

    WEEK SEVEN

    by

    Another week is in the books! This week was all about the radio show. It also wasn’t too much different from week six except we had daily creates, which I love doing by the way. Recording the radio show was definitely a pain because of how long it took but …

    Double Indemnity
