Somewhere a faucet drips.

Somewhere a faucet drips.


Clearly I’m going through a black and white, earthy noir moment. This song plays through my head when I look at this. So does this one for some reason.

I’ve been doing a pretty decent job of staying off the computer, which explains unanswered messages. Sorry for that, but I really need to keep myself offline especially now that college is starting again in a couple of weeks. I’m not feeling that photographic at the moment though…once classes begin I’ll probably be more motivated. I feel really bad about not being able to follow the work of others as much and I hope I can catch up as much as possible when I can! I don’t like missing out on your beautiful photographs even though being off the internet has been really good for my peace of mind.

Yesterday I modeled for the amazing Andrea Pun and I can’t wait to see what she came up with! I got to play fashion model, which was absolutely nerve-wracking since I’m not in the least modelesque, but we had a wonderful stylist and make-up team and though I was nervous it was very fun. Check out one of the shots here!

Bad Things

Bad Things


It took a while to set up for this shot. Last week I collected tons of large, heavy branches while out walking and dragged them home in the rain, only to have them be disposed of by the gardeners. Another week passed before I managed to collect another sufficient batch! And today, what with the overcast weather, I figured I should give a bit of TTV action a go.

Tomorrow I will be off on a plane for a 5 day little trip! I’m bringing my camera(s) and computer along, so I’m thinking there will be much hotel photography fun.

The Treasure Hunt

The Treasure Hunt

Keys … Check
Pirate Skull Eye Patch … Check
Blood Stain on wooden chest … Check

Alright then, it has only taken me a year to find these. They were well hidden. Stuffed in a little open box on the computer table within arms reach of where I sit every day. Finally, I am able to go on a real adventure to find the Treasure that I don’t remember what it is or where I buried it.

I really hope I didn’t bury it in the cat box again.

View with your Pirate Swords hanging from your side and saying, Aye Matey, every ten minutes.
