a portrait of real life, not of fabricated cinema.

I am Candace Parker. I love Jesus. I'm a photographer. An artist. always learning. always growing. born in '90. currently in California. I do this for me; I do this to remember.

"On the street where I work, is a little nostalgia. As many of you know, my favorite band happens to be Anberlin, who graced Seattle today for their final show here, on their final tour ever. At the corner of Summit and Pine, is where they recorded their first three records, despite being based in central Florida. For their first ever photo shoot, back in 2002, they shot the cover of their album a block away from where it was recorded. That happens to be the same block where my salon is. During the recording process of their third album, I’d walk across the street and pop into the studio to listen and hang out. Those were the good ol’ days, as they say. They never recorded an album in Seattle again, but they’ve come through on every tour, playing to what amounts to a home-away-from-home show. As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and today the end finally came for Anberlin and Seattle. But before I allowed that to happen, I had an idea. A few mornings ago, I awoke insanely early and said to myself "I am going to recreate the cover shot of their first album, just 12 years later." I wanted to do this, as an homage to the beginning of their career and as a way to tie together the end. Today, we made it happen. The shot isn’t anything special at first glance, but to me, and hopefully to the band, it is. Their music has been a gift for the past 12 years and today, I was able to give a gift back. For day 286 of the #JG365Project, I give you Anberlin. I can’t tell you all how much this meant to me, but hopefully I’m able to show you through my photography. (*Fin.)"

Forgot to mention I finished this book last weekend. Didn&#8217;t realize there are now 16 books in the series, which means that after this one I am now OFFICIALLY halfway through it haha. It&#8217;s only taken 3 years&#8230;.

A Legitimate Chris Barnes Story

I ran into Chris Barnes at Argus a couple of Fridays ago (Sept. 19th to be precise).  We were leaving for The Bear when I hear “Candace Parker!” and I turned around and it was Chris Barnes!  My heart swelled with so much joy :)  I then proceeded to spend the next 2 1/2 hours with him and his friend Nick.  It was such a lovely night.  He just always reminds me not to settle and it’s just such an encouragement :)  I miss him.  His baby is due at the beginning of December and I have affectionately dubbed him Booger Barnes hahahaha <3

My day in a nutshell

(via c-thr-n)

Also got an A on my stats test!

I got a 76/80 which equates to a 95%! My z-score was 1.33, and of those who sit around me in that class I had the highest grade :) I am very proud of myself.

I got an A! I got an A!

I got a 52/50 on my bio psych test I took last week.  I crammed for a few hours the night before and a little bit the morning of.  I keep track of all the questions I know for sure, the ones I could whittle it down to between a couple of choices, and the ones I have no clue on.  37 I knew, 10 I was iffy on, and 3 were complete guesses.  There were also 3 extra credit points available, so that means I only missed 1 question.  Also, I have a 93% in a class with an average grade of 73%.  Gotta keep this up :)
