08/22/2013 - Chasing a Sunset

First of all, I am Joshlyn Wallace, I am the new blogger and assisting photographer for Pineywoods Day/Night out. I am a Senior Photojournalism major and Creative Writing minor at SFA. I graduate in May 2014. I my own photography business Joshlyn Wallace Photography.

I took a week off from my "day" job delivering pizza to rest up for my last full week of school. Yesterday I was driving to Stephenville to visit my parents, and for those who don't know that's a 5 hour drive. I was between Waco and Stephenville, and I come upon this beautiful sunset, and I'm cruising along and I originally decided not to pull over and take a picture, but then I started looking at the sunset, and it was spectacular, oranges and yellows and purples with a darkening blue sky, and I swear I could see little spurts of rays shining up. So finally I decide to pull over and take a picture, but I'd already passed up the perfect spot. But I drove another 10 miles or so chasing this sunset, part of the reason I didn't want to pull over was because there was a slow 18 wheeler behind me that I'd already passed. But I learned a valuable lesson, it's better to deal with getting stuck behind an 18 wheeler than to chase a beautiful sunset. I did manage to snap a few pictures.

I will be attending the Backroads Music Festival to go backstage and take pictures and blog. I'm very excited. I've worked at a music festival in Stephenville before but I worked the ice truck and the parking lot, I never got anywhere close to backstage.

I'm just pretty excited about this job in general because I was born in Nacogdoches, and I love the social activity that's growing in the community and it's exciting to take on an adventure to go a little more in depth with these events, activities, and new locations popping up.
