    Candace Parrott. Likes to read books in The Garlic Press coffee shop in her free time. After reading, Candace writes in her journal about the chapters to "fulfill her learning." The current book she is reading is Unashamed by Christine Caine. A book that, "reveals the hidden effects of shame many women face. She helps women find freedom from believing they're flawed and unworthy and prepares them to step into the future confident, dearly loved, and empowered to be shame-lifters for others."

    This is my take on High Dynamic Range photos. I went to Illinois, Funks Grove in McLean county to test my ability of HDR. When I went I discovered I had missed most of the turning of trees. However, I managed with resourceful help in discovering other neat features of Funks Grove. Trees help our soil remain healthy by reducing soil erosion and by creating a soil climate suitable for microorganism to grow. There are over 23,000 different kinds of trees in the world. A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old. One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.

Fungi cause disease when a spore germinates on a susceptible host under the appropriate environmental conditions, producing hyphae (threads of fungal tissue) that enter and feed on the host.

"Sugar Grove Nature Center is located in Funks Grove among over 1,000 acres of high quality natural area, most of which are protected as registered Illinois Land & Water Reserves or dedicated Illinois Nature Preserves. Funks Grove is the largest remaining intact prairie grove in the state of Illinois and portions have been designated a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior. Over seven miles of trails take visitors through prairie and woodland habitats. A trail from the Nature Center leads to the Funks Grove Church, Cemetery, and Chapel of the Templed Trees. Pets are welcome on most trails, but must be leashed and remain on the trail at all times."

    Losing all sense of sanity Bryn relentlessly beats Adrian to a bloody pulp with a weapon. Asa and Bella tries to grab Bryn on her rampage even when Adrian is yelling for her to stop she continues. Daughters is a film about four sisters; Asa, Bryn, Olive and Bella. The film starts with the girls out in the wilderness trying to decide the fate of Adrian. A man who turn their night of fun to a night of terror. The short film will premiere Spring 2017. As the Production Assistant I had to make sure each actress and actor had make-up, review scripts with director, scout places to shoot, and make sure everything on the script was read correctly. I also brought my DSLR along with me to capture certain scenes, but most importantly capture a profile for the entire cast.

    Monster Bad was on tour, traveling from NY! Making Blooming-Normal, IL. Making one of its stops to perform and wow were they brilliant. From the small elements that keyboard to the banging of the drums. This band's sound is something to keep an eye on. It starts from a fragile sound and builds up to an empowering sound that can't be ignored. If you don't believe me give them a play at http://monsterbad.nyc/. I specifically love 'Congratulations,' such a moving song.
