One of the photos I did for our day care person. She is selling these wine bottles that she decorates as well as places lights on the indside. I'm having fun trying different techniques to get these shots. There are still many more I need to shoot. Different designs, colors, and bottle shapes.

If anyone wishes to know the website, drop me a flickr mail.

I perhaps should have photograpyed some of the things that actually won prizes. The dragon bottle next to my troll controversially also failed to impress the 2011 Turriff judges...

Note my troll now sports a dandy silver wine pouring hat...

November 28th,2009(sooc)
so i worked from 10am-8:30pm last night. boy was that crazy and fun. The ace broke at work and boy did it remind me of back home. My mom wanted to save money so during the day until 8pm we would keep the ace off, and it got so hott inside but then we got used to it and we didn't realize it was hott unless it was cold outside and we came inside. I remember people,when they came over, used to say"dang why is it so hott in here" and my mom and i would start laughing, saying we were used to it and then she'd explain to them why ahha. we always kept the windows open but even so the florida heat made it worse ahha. I loved living with my mom, even though there was so hard times, it was still a great experience every time i lived with her. I learned so much. SNAP i took so much for granted back then, i wasn't appreciative and i always wanted something more or better, man oh man why didn't i appreciate things more and be more grateful, and now i am. I'm so grateful,appreciate, and thankful, and don't take anything for granted, pero my whole family is across the other side of the country now. and man do i miss them like a baby would miss her barbie. so yeah back to work ahha. I'm reminiscing way to much these days, getting off topic. Work was filled with so much hectik, fun, eventful, crazy moments. i went and bought those above cards for my family(since i don't celebrate xmas but want to do something for them so they know i love them and stuff,and it's so perfect for fl ahah),and i got bananas, tangerines, and apricots. It was so funny i had to take out money 3 times from my savings:/. but ah well food is worth it. i'd rather never have clothes again and always have a plentiful amount of food. Around 3 i started getting really hyper and silly because i had been there all day and need to get around and do something. At 5:30 i ran to this pizza place and back 2 times ahah. i had so much energy i was jumping up and down screaming "ahhh i have soo much energy way to much to be balled up in this place" haha my co worker prob. thinks i'm insane. When i closed by myself i was blasting the music and dancing like crazy, it was fun, but so embarrassing when i was singing at the top of my lungs and a couple customers walked in ahaha. They said they didn't mind. I was blushing like crazy. so yeah over all work was great. i work tomorrow from 3-close. so i'm going to sleep in, practice breathing, read the writings, wash clothes, and read. i can't wait to hear jonels voice next week. So for me i'm not going to plan my future because i don't know what will be in store, and i know i'm young and have so much more to experience, pero i want jonel to experience it with me, to be there with me through it all, and i want him in my future. so yeah hehe. Me and matt have a love hate relationship,friendwise, i want to be his friend,but he really needs to get over me, or it's going to be hard to be his friend. ah well. hope everyone had a good saturday.
hey you guys think i should get dreadlocks? have a new hairstyle, and be all funky haha. it's so my personality and if jonel doesn't like it he can kiss my booty hehe
haha oh and i totally forgot. i'm sending 13 of those cards to my moms sides of the family so about 9 individual families and 4 people. Also for my close close friends that aren't bahai's, and my aunt eheh. I'm making them a home made gift, buying them a gift, and writing them a letter, and each persons package is going to be unique and in a way that reminds me of them or what not. i'm beyond excited. so i have 20 people i'm sending things to. hehe i love buying and making things for people. it's a blast. wait until ayyam-i-ha, especially now that i have money, my family is going to be so loving my 4 day gifts. ooo i already have an idea haha.

Palais de l'Élysée (Élysée Palace), Paris, France




Palais de l'Élysée (Élysée Palace), Paris, France





The Elysee Palace (Palais de l'Elysee) is the official residence of the President of the French Republic, containing his office, and is where the Council of Ministers meets. It is located near the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
The Elysee has gardens, in which the president hosts a party on the afternoon of Bastille Day.

The architect Armand-Claude Mollet possessed a property fronting on the road to the village of Roule, west of Paris (now the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore), and backing onto royal property, the Grand Cours through the Champs-Elysees. He sold this in 1718 to Louis Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne, comte d'Evreux (families: ducs and princes de Bouillon et Sedan: de la Marck | von der Marck), with the agreement that Mollet would construct an hotel particulier for the count, fronted by an entrance court and backed by a garden. The Hotel d'Evreux was finished and decorated by 1722, and though it has undergone many modifications since, it remains a fine example of the French classical style. At the time of his death in 1753, Evreux was the owner of one of the most widely admired houses in Paris, and it was bought by King Louis XV as a residence for the Marquise de Pompadour, his mistress. Opponents showed their distaste for the regime by hanging signs on the gates that read: "Home of the King's whore". After her death, it reverted to the crown.
In 1773, it was purchased by Nicolas Beaujon, banker to the Court and one of the richest men in France, who needed a suitably sumptuous "country house" (for the city of Paris did not yet extend this far) to house his fabulous collection of great masters paintings. To this end, he hired the architect Etienne-Louis Boullee to make substantial alterations to the buildings (as well as design an English-style garden). Soon on display there were such well-known masterpieces as Holbein's The Ambassadors (now in the National Gallery in London), and Frans Hals' Bohemian (now at the Louvre). His architectural alterations and art galleries gave this residence international renown as "one of the premier houses of Paris".
The palace and gardens were purchased from Beaujon by Bathilde, duchesse de Bourbon in 1787 for 1,300,000 livres. It was the Duchess who named it the Elysee. She also built a group of cottages in the gardens which she named the Hameau de Chantilly, after the Hameau at her Chateau de Chantilly. With the French Revolution, the Duchess fled the country and the Elysee was confiscated. It was leased out. The gardens were used for eating, drinking, and dancing, under the name Hameau de Chantilly; and the rooms became gambling houses.
In 1803, the Elysee was sold to Joachim Murat, and in 1808, to the Emperor, and it became known as the Elysee-Napoleon. After the Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon returned to the Elysee, signed his abdication there on 22 June 1815, and left the Elysee on the 25th.
Russian Cossacks camped at the Elysee when they occupied Paris in 1814.
Though it was first officially used by the government of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Hotel d'Evreux was formally purchased for Louis XVIII in 1816. Under the provisional government of the Second Republic, it took the name of the Elysee National and was designated the official residence of the President of the Republic. (The President also has the use of several other official residences, including the Chateau de Rambouillet, forty five kilometres southwest of Paris, and the Fort de Bregancon near Marseille.)

In 1853, following his coup d'etat that ended the Second Republic, Napoleon III charged the architect Joseph-Eugene Lacroix with renovations; meanwhile he moved to the nearby Tuileries Palace, but kept the Elysee as a discreet place to meet his mistresses, moving between the two palaces through a secret underground passage that has since been demolished. Since Lacroix completed his work in 1867, the essential look of the Palais de l'Elysee has remained the same.
In 1873, during the Third Republic, The Elysee became the official presidential residence.
In 1917, an orangutan escaped from a nearby menagerie, entered the palace and was said to have tried to haul the wife of President Raymond Poincare into a tree only to be foiled by Elysee guards. President Paul Deschanel, who resigned in 1920 because of mental illness, was said to have been so impressed by the orangutan's feat that, to the alarm of his guests, he took to jumping into trees during state receptions.

The Elysee Palace was closed in June 1940, and remained empty during World War II. It was reoccupied only in 1946 by Vincent Auriol, President of the Provisional Government, then first President of the Fourth Republic from 1947 to 1954.
Between 1959 and 1969, the Elysee was occupied by Charles de Gaulle, the first President of the Fifth Republic. De Gaulle did not like its lack of privacy, and oversaw the purchase of the luxurious Hotel de Marigny to lodge foreign State officials in visit to France, saying, "I do not l











59 Rivoli, Paris




59 Rivoli, Paris





59 Rue de Rivoli in Paris

59 Rivoli stands for the idea of what Art ought to be. Enter this liberal space, where artists show their works and share their lives. A must-see in Paris.

Sometimes alternative culture and big audiences find a meeting point, and this is the case: the well-known artists' squat in the heart of the city of Paris is back and going at full speed.

In 1999, when the so-called KGB ( a trio composed by three artists: Kalex, Gaspard and Bruno) occupied this building left abandoned by the bank Credit Lyonnais, on Rue de Rivoli, they could not imagine it was to become one of the most popular art spots in the whole French country. But it did.

The squat, at first named "Chez Robert, eletron libre", was closed in 2006 by the municipal government, in order to be restored and secured. It re-opened in September 2009, this time legally charged by Paris City Hall. Despite the loss of the guilty pleasure visitors might feel while going illicit, the new "Aftersquat" (as it is now called) keeps attracting thousands of people.
Hidden Treasure On Rue De Rivoli

Walking down the rue Rivoli, it is almost impossible to miss this white, weirdly decorated, multifloor palace. Its wide open door welcomes passers-by in. Some artists would be probably sitting back at the entrance, talking to guests or just enjoying a cigarette break, as an extra attraction.

At a glance, everything seems worthy a visit, and at least, it's all free!
