Amanda rocking out in pink

Amanda rocking out in pink

After about a three month hiatus, I think it's only fair to come back with something shocking. Shocking pink at least. Something to shock my eyes back in to action. Post ironman seemed to sap my energy, suddenly I had a whole lot more time but not so much get up and go. I worked more, trained less and the photography seemed to slip through the cracks too. This weekend we went to San Antonio and I pulled out the camera and charged it up. A few shots and I realised how much I'd missed taking pictures - lots of pictures followed. We visited the Alamo, toured San Antonio, went to the missions and I'll probably post some of those images during the rest of the week. My favourite part of the whole trip was the Mexican market though - just for the amazing colours around the area. I saw the side of one museum with this shocking purple/ pink wall, some lemon yellow and vivid green sections. We made a beeline for it - me dragging Kate, Tim & Amanda along. A few seconds of posing, some playing around and I've got my new favourite desktop wallpaper shot above of Amanda, hamming it up. She just looks like she's having fun! Lighting was just a bright, cloudy day - scattered cloud, sun coming in and out. A bit of timing and finding the right place at the right time.
