This one time, back in August, a boy and I wandered through the woods. Then I learned, while studying for the GRE, that a group of trees is called a “stand.” So next time you’re in the woods… you’re actually in a bunch of stands. Or something.
We athijews attacked Artscape. Hello children’s puzzles and a near-free afternoon! Oh, and this squirrel ate our power line. We lost power for a while, but I think he lost the war.
So this one time, back in June, a boy and I went to the zoo. We had a photo-off, and I contend that I won, mainly because I shot digital and was able to edit before the viewing. :p
Did a couple of freelance assignments for The Capital again on Wednesday, they let me use a brand new Nikon D3. Glorious. In-between assignments, on the way back to my car, I attacked some flowers.
First, some quotes. From Pink’s So What: “So, so what, I’m still a rock star I got my rock moves and I don’t need you And guess what, I’m havin’ more fun And now that we’re done I’m gonna show you tonight I’m alright, I’m just fine and you’re a […]

President Obama is right… we are weather wimps. I had two dentist appointments, two classes, and two educational matinees canceled. That means a lot of time on my hands. Now that the snow is melted and my bosses are on vacation… I work approximately 30 hours between today and Sunday.
House-sitting while the parents are house-hunting… feed the cats, refill the humidifiers… eventually I got bored enough on my day off for a photo walk. I used to be afraid of the woods behind our homes, but time conquers all.
GOOD: Yesterday I received my first check from The Capital. $35 for one published assignment. Its not a Pulitzer, but it officially launches me into the realm of professional photojournalism. Barely, but technically. Also, I got an e-mail from a videographer I met in Photoshop last semester saying he needed […]
