Monday Funday

Recently I sorta played hooky and spent the day home on a Monday with Chris.  We really didn't sleep well the night before so the extra day off helped us rejuvenate (well for me) for yet another week.  After I napped for a few hours and Chris rested in his own way we both started to get a little stir crazy.  It was a beautiful sunny day so we decided go for a walk/hike.

One of my favorite things to do is explore parks in the area I have never been to.  The closest one I hadn't been to was Brush Creek Park in Beaver Falls, PA (in the middle of nowhere).  I had never heard of it but Chris ran there in high school a few times for MACs (not sure what it stands for - running was not my thing).  I fell in love with the pictures of the place when I googled it because of the covered bridge.  I love bridges but REALLY love covered bridges.

Knowing I wanted to get photos of the covered bridge we drove a few miles deeper into the park.  I (being the one who drives often because I get car sick pretty easily) passed the parking spot closest to the covered bridge.  I kept going thinking there was a spot EVEN closer (I can be really lazy sometimes).  Alas, there was not, so we trail-blazed a little from our parking spot to the covered bridge.  As always, I had my camera with me and was already starting to annoy Chris by stopping to get a photo of the log, the leaves, the trees, the sun shining through the trees, our shadows, etc (you know how it goes).  It wasn't until I took my finger off the trigger for a few seconds and looked at my screen to see the photos I had just taken that I realized that I had left the camera chip AT HOME!  After a profanity or two (and maybe a little tantrum) I remembered I had my iPhone.  iPhone to the rescue!  I'm sure Chris was just thrilled;)

I am still a little disappointed I wasn't able to get pictures with my "big camera" (hehe Jenny, get it?) but so glad I had something with me to capture the moments from the walk.

Most of the photos were taken with my Hipstamatic App but a few with Cross Process.  Since Hipstamatic has added a "favorites" (where I can keep all my favorite lens/film combinations) I have been using it a lot more.  Before I was so intimated and overwhelmed.  Now, I love (bordering obsessed) it!

One of the problems with being the one always having the camera and taking the pictures is I rarely have a photo of myself.  Chris dared me to walk across this log.  I tossed him my phone to get the photo.  And yes, however not gracefully, I did make it.  No broken bones either;)

Wouldn't that bridge be just perfect for a photo shoot?!  Hint Hint;)
