Sunday #54: Sunflowers


Hello, friends!  I've been a little off the radar, but I'm back after two weeks of missed Sundays.


I've finally bitten the bullet and made myself a real photography website!  After consulting with some friends who suggested that naming my photography after my blog might be confusing, I've settled on Alyse Liang Photography.  There are quite a few things I still want to work out, but I think it's time I took this more seriously.  I've been building up my portfolio and have gotten a few (very small) photography jobs in town.  I'm making peanuts, but I'm chasing my dream, you know?  Here is some recent photographic work! 


This week, I got to spend time with a lot of my girlfriends!  Interestingly, all our time together usually involves food at some point.  On Thursday, I had Ana over for dinner and she was kind enough to get me the sunflowers you see at the top.  We went Griffith Park on Saturday to watch When Harry Met Sally on blankets, under the stars.  This evening, Roberta took me The Huntingdon to stroll through the gardens as the sun set.  It's funny how I do more "date" things with my girlfriends than my boyfriend!  

I've just finished Game of Thrones with my roommate and I'm heading to bed soon.  I've had a raging headache for most of today and I want to rest up before Monday.  How was your week?


  1. Awh no I hope your headache gets better, they're the worst because you can't focus on anything! Yay for your new website, just went on it and it looks GREAT. So happy that you're kickin-ass out here! And don't get me started on your gym routine (totally stalked your Insta story before this)...

    My week was exhausting - I worked late every night and I think it's the same this week :(
