Trying to remember when it stopped being theory and turned into real life, because theory was a whole lot easier.

I completely fell for you… and you? You didn’t even stumble.

You’re the strangest person I ever met, he said & I said you too & we decided we’d know each other a long time.

more updates…

Here’s what I’ve been working on so far. Two more projects to finish… and I’m running out of time!

Many, many thanks to everyone who’s been helping, supporting, inspiring, and donating materials for all these projects. You know who you are, and I couldn’t have gotten this far without all of you! Love you all!

Now its time for me to get back to work.

Many thanks to Alanna, Alicia,  Pam, and Marcia for helping with my photo series project…

Wordle…

Wordle is a neat site that makes “word clouds” from text, websites, twitter feeds, or pretty much anythng you give it… Words you use more appear larger, and you can tweak the fonts and colors to make it look how you want.

I Wordled my blog to see what came up… here’s what I’ve been talking bout lately.

I think is funny that the word Divorce is HUGE from the mention of that invitation a few posts back.

It’s still raining…

And I wonder if I’ll ever see the sun again.

I’m still hoping for some feedback on those two photos I posted yesterday, but after downloading and reading the entry forms, I am allowed to send 2 images, so that makes my decision pretty easy. I did crop the red tulip a little, just so that it isn’t smack in the middle of the shot.

it’s Friday.

It was finally a perfect, non-rainy spring day; and I was well enough to get out for a bit to use my new camera. I didn’t get to take too many shots though, the sinus pressure in my head started to get the best of me.

Went over to Starbucks for a bit, thought I’d bring my laptop and hang out for a bit; enjoy the day. But I couldn’t seem to get my wifi to work… spent an hour there fighting with my laptop, but no luck. But at least I got out for a little bit. I’ve been stuck in the house for pretty much the entire week.

Next week is the Heckscher Tulip Festival, so I’m going to try and get out there to take a some more photos. I’ve been meaning to do it the past few years, but never seemed to be able to get the day off.

Happy Friday everyone!

Back in action!

Well, sort of. At least my car has been repaired. My job has switched over to winter hours extremely early this year, so I’m back to the 10 hour days. That kinda cuts into my time for photography a bit, since I don’t get home before 9pm most days. Hopefully it will only be a temporary thing, and once the “Summer Sale” is over I can go back to normal hours for another month or so. I wasn’t expecting for my summer to be cut short already!

Here’s one shot from that roll of film that was waiting to be developed when my car decided it was done working for a bit…. I mistakenly shot this roll at ISO 400, but it was actually 800 speed film, so its a bit washed out.  It also was crazy sunny that day, which probably didn’t help either. I did try to tweak it a little in PS. I kinda like it in this pic. One of those happy accidents I guess.

There’s another couple of new shots over in Traveling Gnome as well.

Almost

I almost had a bunch of pictures to post today, but instead, I’m about to have another nasty car bill.

I jumped into my car this afternoon, after finishing off a roll of film, to get it developed, and my car got me about a quarter mile down the road before it decided it had enough, and promptly stalled out. I tried to start it up again, and didn’t even get a sputter. So, after waiting on the side of the road for about an hour for a tow, and a ride back home, I am without a car, or a roll of freshly developed film.

Sucks. A lot.

And if one more person says “well, I guess its time for a new car…” I’m gonna SCREAM!

That’s all for now… Hopefully, the boy will be feeling up to a drive tomorrow and maybe I’ll get my film developed.

Oh! And I added another picture to the Traveling Gnome’s page, courtesy of Steve and his super cool new Verizon Dare phone. There’s a link over there on the right!
