New York

So a couple weeks ago I went up to Chuang Yen Monastery for Buddhist Camp. I thought, "Cool, camp and I'll learn a little bit a bout Buddhism too! Sounds great!" So My mom, dad, brother, boyfriend and I all headed up to Carmel New York.

The monastery was beautiful and simply done, with lots of natural wood on some gorgeous land. I didn't take too many photos, but here are a few.

Prizes for the kids!

No idea what they are doing, but it looks like they are having fun!

Tye-dyed T-shirts for the first time in a long time! I love it!

Camp Counselor looking pretty in pink! (I forgot her name or never knew it... lol)

Crystal chillin outside the dining hall
It was so much fun and I learned a lot about Buddhism and made lots of friends. It led me to wonder whether the people there were nicer and kindlier than most, or whether it was business as usual! But seriously, everyone was great!

Then in a sudden change, I went to NYC for an illustration conference. I shot two rolls of film but loaded the second (more exciting) one wrong, so nothing was ever shot. =( Oh well, that'll teach me to be more careful next time!

At Wo Hop's, a place from Arielle's childhood memories =)

Unfortunately all the fun and awesome photos I took in Chinatown never made it to film. =( I was very sad about that, but what can you do?

Now I'm home and working on a few projects, tryin to keep myself busy!
