this past week has been a little nutty for a few reasons.
steve's parents and aunt & uncle are here for a visit, so our days are filled with mini adventures, touring sights and eating at great restaurants :)
after i realized that the world photography award festival lasts 5 days, i decided i needed to find out what i could get into. the very nice girl at the info booth said "oh, it's almost over, here's a pass."
so - saturday and sunday i was able to attend some shooting workshops with professional models and about 30 other photographers, shooting in and around the palais.
from there i was invited to the istockphoto party at a really flamboyant hotel.
and sunday i attended a seminar about the "new business of photography."
some new friends even offered to help me select my portfolio.
all in all, i met a lot of great people, learned some important advice, and had fun :)
lastly but not least - this is my final week of work as a language assistant.
(i did a little photoshoot, will post more and of the school itself)
me in my little classroom - D408 :)
i've got loads of pictures to catch up on editing, a good-bye dinner tonight, my official "au revoir france" (french themed) party tomorrow night (hard to find party decorations here!) and the last couple days with steve's family.
i cannot believe how april flew.
april goals update tomorrow!
