picking flowers for mom, originally uploaded by lpetricka.

I went for a quick run to petaluma with my travis and on the way home he stopped to pick some flowers for his mom. I thought it was just the sweetest thing and I had to take a picture of it. 😀

I got the chance to babysit my best friend’s niece with her yesterday and I had such a good time! She is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. So giggly and fun. I just wish i had my Canon instead of just my iphone. I had so much fun! I can’t wait to watch her again! There are a couple more photos of her in my flickr.

every weekday morning [excluding fridays] i get to drive over the golden gate bridge on my way to school. that morning was gorgeous and the sky was clear so i nabbed a picture with my phone while i was driving. with a little phone editing the colors just popped. i love this photo. i hope you love it too. :]

Brussels, Belgium, originally uploaded by lpetricka.

I took this photo with my iPhone while I was studying abroad. I spent two nights in Belgium and this river was just absolutely gorgeous. I wish I had the camera then that I have now but I think my iPhone did a fairly good job. Especially with some slight editing I made using my photoshop mobile app. Got to love it.

So I finally got around to uploading a couple of photos from my trip to New York last summer. I really hope I get another chance to go back because I didn’t realize until going through the photos just now, that I could have gotten some amazing photos if I was as into photographer back then as I am now. Hopefully soon.

I love checking out this guys flickr set, Stormtroopers 365. It’s so clever and done so well it’s inspired me to get my own little stormtrooper figure. This photo is just one of my favorites in the whole series. I just had to blog about it. Great work Stéfan! Keep it up!

Looks like Dudley Dursley, aka Harry Melling has shed a few pounds. I must say he’s gotten quite attractive.

In an interview with Telegraph he admitted that the producers of Deathly Hallows almost recast him because of the weight loss.

“It was nearly two years ago,” he says, refusing the offer of breakfast. “I was doing a show at the National Youth Theatre, playing an old man. Before that I had played fat clowns and I thought, ‘If I want to have the career I would like, I am going to have to lose weight.’ I was just starting drama school, and found I was moving around a lot. I also started to eat sensibly. The weight just dropped off. I went from 16st to 11st 5lb.”

He hadn’t appeared in a Potter flick for a couple of years, so when the producers saw him again they didn’t even recognize him.

[H]e had changed almost beyond recognition, to the producers’ alarm. “They did this double-take, ‘Oh my God, we are going to have to do something,’ and I felt very guilty. They could have recast, but instead they padded me out.”

Wow, I’m rendered speechless. Who would have thought?
