two hundred and forty eight

two hundred and forty eight

i realize i take a lot of photographs at my windowsill but i spend a lot of time sitting here, looking out the window, using the sill as a table for my computer, or for a place to write. it’s perfect when sitting at my ottoman.

i’ve added notes to the photo so you know what is almost always sitting on my windowsill.

sometimes i feel captured in the small moments.

the light of a cigarette.
the dusting of a plant.
falling leaves.
falling dreams.

then i am snapped back, into a place of reality and despair.

so you guys know, tomorrow is photograph your day day. i did it two years ago and the photos from that day are a set on here. maybe you should do it too. just spend a day documenting your day in photographs!

i didn’t do it last year, i was in portland having a mental breakdown. it was terrible and beautiful at the same time. i’m glad it’s not documented though.

day two hundred and seventy eight.

Another day, another day. I kept hearing reports of large amounts of snow, but we got merely a dusting. Weird. I was kind of hoping to watch the snow pile up as I toiled away with my computer code. Instead, I just toiled.

Glad to see Tumblr is back! I missed playing ask a photography question. So come on! Ask a question! What do you want to know? About my photography, or photography in general.

Day 281: Changes In Me

Day 281: Changes In Me

281/365
March 4, 2010
I’m going to confess, this picture is just as much of a surprise to me as it is to you. I literally came out from ethics and had 20 minutes to take pictures and read the pages I was supposed to for my next class (procrastination, gotta love it). I had NO clue what I wanted to do today…so I literally stepped in front of the camera, took three pictures of me just standing there and went on with my day. It wasn’t until later that I came up with this idea…which I don’t know if I like or not yet.

Just a warning for everyone, my pictures will probably go downhill for the next week or so. I’m going back to Ohio to the SLOWEST computer on the face of the earth. Tomorrow I’ll be on a train most of the day but will attempt to get a picture cranked out and edited before I leave…we’ll see. If not, expect it the day after…

I really need this break but I can’t help but be a little sad. A few months ago Garry and I were talking about seeing one another for spring break…that’s obviously not going to happen. It makes me worry about this summer…if I don’t get to see him this summer we’ll have gone a year + without seeing one another and already we’re beginning to slowly slip into some sort of madness-him especially. I sometimes step back and wonder how in the world I have gone this long without scratching my eyes out :S I dunno…

Either way, I plan on sleeping…a LOT. I won’t get back to Ohio until 3am then it’s another hour drive to the house. I’ll be alright though…

TRF: My friends and I went to Taco Bell last night which was oh so yummy! Then we went back to Melissa’s house and watched Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Basically I like the movie only because I performed in it my Junior year of high school but watching it with 3 hardcore Christians made me really uncomfortable….

I had bangs cut last month, for the first time since Stephanie Tanner had bangs. I like them. I know it’s lame to get haircuts like celebrities, but deep down I secretly may have been imagining Lauren Ambrose. Really I still look like me though.

I’m moving in a week and haven’t done very much about it. I’ve taken a lot of pictures in this room.

365 Day 265*

365 Day 265*

Cool! I managed to post a picture exactly like my icon. I’m so inventive.

Moving on – this picture reminds of the end of days. Post nuclear war. End of existence except for me of course. Standing amongst the dust and rubble and grime and dead and shit and just pondering my life.

Explosions in the distance. Bombs flying everywhere. Apprehensive and restless as you give up hope on even living another minute.

I take for granted being able to sit in my little bedroom and type on my broken computer and not having to worry about a bullet flying into my skull or a grenade exploding at my feet.

Lucky me.

I got an email today from my co-worker slash friend slash ex-friend slash ex-best-friend about the 1500’s. As in… the 16th century? It was totally false – everything it was about. But still – it got me to thinking how people lived not that long ago.

I would give my left thumb to just live one day in the life of a regular person in the year 1550.

No internet. No cars. No electricity!!

No pens? No recorded music. No computers. No rock bands, satellites, microchips, telephones – or ANY form of communication but just fucking TALKING (mostly).

No televisions.

No hot showers and no air conditioners.

No advertising. No marketing.

And most importantly…. NO fucking corporations.

No music industry and no FM music stations and MTV cable mass-producing fucking trash down our throats EVERY………FUCKING………DAY.

No cable. No wires. No radio waves. No FCC. No airplanes and ….

NO SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No passports. No need for them dude.

No billboards on the side of the highway. Hell…….no highways at ALL!

No smog and no cars and everything involving OIL altogether!

No energy crisis.

No mixing of cultures. No diluting of traditions. No elevator music. No ipods and no video chat.

No “America” …. Whatever that means or is or .. was?

No Xbox. No play station. No yahoo instant messenger. No email. No fucking stop signs and no **SUPER**markets (barf).

No Hollywood. No movies or directors or breast implants or lipstick or Enquirer magazine or tabloids or Budweiser beer or …………..

I’m not a fucking idiot. I know it wasn’t all dandy good times back in the 1500’s. Yet the diluting of culture I see with corporate America EVERY FUCKING DAY with another Starbucks or McDonalds popping up just makes me want to throw up.

I guess my point is this —- We aren’t headed in the right direction folks.

Call me a pessimist or dark or angry or stupid or a non-conformist. That’s fine. I’m actually happy.

But the direction all this shit is headed? Not good. I really would do anything to change it. I’m trying right here. I hope someone reads this and does something.

Start here: Don’t shop at Walmart.

Yay.

I found this new location today on the way to my mom’s house. It’s hard to tell, but there was a light dusting of snow flurries coming down that was so pretty. I just wanted to make a quick stop to get my selfie out of the way so I wouldn’t have to think about it while I was there working on her computer. I ended up being there hours setting up the new computer we got her for Christmas and resetting up her wireless and her Tivo. But I think I got everything reinstalled and working, I just have to migrate her files from the old computer. Got home late, made myself dinner, threw in some laundry and worked on my image.

My psych class starts on Wednesday!
