One of my "budding" interests photography. Budding is in quotations because I used to take a lot of photos when I was younger. I had a small point and click Sony camera in high school. But when it stopped working, I just kind of fell off. Throughout college I wanted to pick it back up, but could never afford a camera. Well, at least the kind of camera I wanted. So I kept pushing it off. Then I started blogging. Most of my pictures were taken on my (or my mother's lol) iphone. And while that was okay I guess, as a visual and artistic person, I am always drawn to good photography. So last Christmas, after wanting and researching for almost two years, my darling, wonderful parents got me the Canon Rebel t3i.

I thought I would be using it primarily to shoot outfits posts or youtube videos (which proves difficult with the poor lighting in my basement apartment.) But I've actually been drawn to shoot sights around New York; from strangers at the Met to #BlackLivesMatter protests to sunsets in Brooklyn.  But what good are pictures if no one can see them? So I am compiling my photos on my new tumblr account, ablackgirlwithacamera.tumblr.com. Definitely check it out and stay tuned for more photos!
