While I’m sharing selfies, I have a handful of relatively new ones that I haven’t shared.
The one I’m sharing tonight was taken a few months ago, in the summer, prior to me switching my hair to Pravana vivids yellow, orange, and red. I’m wearing a crystal crown headband I made, which I nearly never wear in real life because it’s so heavy, it tends to slip and fall off my head, regardless of the fact that I tried to make it anti-slip.
The mineral exhibit had a really neat portion where they had a crystal cave in the wall that you could look through and there was a projection of a man in the cave talking about giant crystals.
I took a picture of the guy, but then discovered taking pictures of the crystal points looked even more interesting.
Doesn’t this just look like a giant green apply Jolly Rancher?
I think it was a peridot specimen. But again, I wasn’t paying attention to the info.
My favorite stop on our vacation was the Minerals exhibit at the Perot Museum. We spent literally like over an hour in there and I photographed pretty much every specimen. They were really remarkable and large and breathtaking.
This was one of the more interesting looking specimens. I think it’s some kind of quartz, but I can’t remember. Aren’t I awful?
For tonight’s Throwback Thursday, I’m sharing a photo I never uploaded this blog. It’s from 2011, taken with my old d3000 and 85mm macro lens.
I used to go around finding all kinds of stuff to photograph simply because I was so excited to have a DSLR and macro lens. My life was complete.
