Shots from My Life

This past semester, life got to the point where shooting photos for work, let alone for personal enjoyment, let alone for posting on this blog, became an afterthought, a idealistic goal that was quickly squelched by life. I’m not saying this year will be any different, and I’m not making any promises, but I am saying that I’m going to try a little harder. Which, in retrospect, doesn’t mean very much when taking last year’s posting schedule into consideration. 😉

All that said, I’ve put together a gallery of some shots I took this autumn/winter; lots of my cat Willow are of course included. Enjoy:


An Attempt at Art?

Leaf art. Maybe hipster, maybe really lame. I’m just experimenting. =P Tell me what you think, please! I’d love to hear your feedback so I know if you want to see more of this kinda stuff. =)

Click to enlarge and see it against black. It looks better IMO… 

{In One Word} Gnarled

Hey! I’m starting something.

At least once a week I’m going to try to post a photo that’s all about a feel, a mood that can *hopefully* be captured in one word. I have no idea how this is even going to turn out, but I’ll never know unless I try, right? 🙂 Here’s something different, though: I’d like you to join me! Try to capture something, anything (anything that can be described in a word, sometimes that’s really hard, haha!) through a photograph, and post it with the tag InOneWord, and I’ll try and stop by to look at it. Sound good? Here’s my first humble offering: gnarled!

I like the dichotomy in this; the rough and twisted tree contrasted with the light, almost “effervescent” leaves, which (admittedly) I’ve edited for a more arty feel.



Enjoy, and please join in! 🙂

Augh! The Leaves are Turning Already!

See? These leaves are already getting that burnt-red autumn goodness to them…which would be great except for that whole “September just started” thing. Summer’s gone so fast… 😐




Some other “end of summer” photos, just to set the tone for the cooler months ahead…enjoy 🙂
