Saturday was my birthday, and what I wanted to do was hang out with Sarah and visit a ghost town, so off to Ophir we drove in our favorite car Earnest.
As you can see, it was really snowy. Ophir didn’t turn out to be a total ghost town, in fact, we met one of the residents while we were checking the historical section!
There was a big wheel. We had to take pictures.
I thought I’d set my camera on the post and run to the wheel and climb up in ten seconds, which is the longest time period you can set the timer for. You can see how successful I was, so we made Sarah try. a lot.
It took many attempts to get the photo, but we persevered!
The one picture where Sarah completely made it on time. She is a master when it comes to climbing big wagon wheels.
Sarah is standing in front of an old train car. I had the ISO on 1600 and I really like the way the snowflakes turned out!
Sarah insisted that I take a picture in front of the Morgan family’s house.
These are our awesome shoes. Sperry’s and Madewell boots weren’t the best decision, but we thought Ophir would be more desert-like and less snowy!
After Ophir we warmed up in Earnest and drove out into a field in the middle of nowhere. Sarah made burritos and brought avocado, Yoplait whips, and even kiwi (from our Bountiful Basket order). I made the salsa, also with Bountiful Basket ingredients. :)
Two hipster kids from BYU wrote this article for Rhombus magazine on what they considered to be the top influential music videos of 2010. Not only do they represent all music genres but they also offer valuable insight and opinions into each one. Below is a segment of their article. Click this link to see their picks for Top 10 of 2010.
"2010 was a year of renaissance for the music video. It was the year the notion that the rules of the game have changed in a post-MTV world came to fruition. Your video can’t just be cool, it has to be cool enough that bloggers write about it. It has to be cool enough that people send the link to their friends. It has to be cool enough that people think it’s a good idea to recreate their own version and post it online for the whole world to see. There isn’t one right way to do it. It can be simple or elaborate, funny or controversial, but if you want a YouTube hit, you need the clicks."
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”—Audrey Hepburn
