Day 170

Happy Leap Day
I realized today that there are 366 days this year.  What does this mean?  Should I change the name of the project or take a day off?

Day 169

This is Becky.  She started working in our office on Monday and she's still there.  It's a good sign.  You'll see more of her.

Day 167

I know that some of you are going to ask: "why are you posting a picture of someone's chest?" The answer: "I'm not sure. I just like it." I like the patterns in her shirt, the neckline, the way her hair falls, the blurry foreground and background... I could go on... It was just one of those moments where my camera just saw an image and took it. Almost on it's own.

I'm very interested in what you all think. Let me know! ...Meaning, if you hate it (or love it), I want to know. ...Please?

Day 166

This is Sarai (my inspiration for Day 152).  We went shooting on 25th Street tonight for our photography class and she was the only person that would model (not counting the Crazy's).  So Sarai, if you are reading this, we MUST go on an actual shoot so that I can take some real pictures of you.  Bring your calendar to the next class. :-)

If you are interested in the rest of the shoot (including the Crazy's...or, more correctly, one of the Crazy's), click here and look to your heart's content.

Day 165

I'm not as excited for tonight's pic as I was about last night's, but it was still fun. 

...And yes, the label did say "non-consumable."  Kinda scares me to ask why.

Day 164

Cocktail Time
For those of you who know me or are my mother, no I haven't started drinking.  I'm just experimenting ... with lighting.

Day 162

Irish Music
Tonight Loria took me out for my birthday (that happened a few weeks ago).  We went to MacCool's, a "Irish Pub" restaurant, for a bit of comfort food, and got some fantastic live music as well.  It was a good night.

Day 161

#3 in the series of my parents renovation.  This view is from the living room looking toward the back door.  Remember Day 104?  Same view, different railing (and angle).

Day 159

This is Baylee.  And yes, she is sassy!

There are a bunch more of these and I will upload them to the graveyard soon...okay, maybe tomorrow.

Day 158

"Dance with Me Grandpa"
...and if you know my Jelly Bean, you'll know that she tried to lead. :-)

Day 157

My Favorite Show
My favorite show of the year at work is the one we do without the Utah Symphony or Ballet West (though I do love the Symphony and the Ballet).  It's a show called A Broadway Valentine and it's starring my friends.  Left to right is Katie Hill (she's new this year and I don't know her), Little Danny Beck (who I've mentioned before and his website is in my list to the right, check him out and buy his CD that will be released soon...we hope), Liz Hansen (who is sweet as can be and a competitive Cowboy Shooter to boot), J. Michael Bailey (who melted me in to a puddle tonight with his version of I'd Rather be Sailing) and Ms. Mary Driggs (who is incomparable and I am at a loss for words).

Day 156

My Favorite Mug
I shot a fact 83 pictures today that I HATED.  So when I got home tonight I thought about an email that my new photo friend Dale sent me today and went hunting in my kitchen for something to shoot.  I liked the contrasting colors of this mug and saucer so I put them in the sink (the best lighting in the house at 11:00 p.m.) and got this.  Trust me, it's better than what I shot earlier. :-)

Day 155

Cabbage Face
My roommate has this really funky little wall hanging.  I'm not sure why it took this long for me to photograph it.

Day 154

Street Lamp
This street lamp looked kinda cool to me against a white snowy sky.

Day 153

The China Nite
Lara and Dale inspired me.  I actually went and shot a bunch of pics at The China Nite yesterday afternoon, but ended up with shots I wanted to use at my photography class last night instead.  SO, I went back today after work and reshot the happy China Nite man.  Looking in the windows of this building, it looks pretty gutted and I'm afraid that it's going to be torn down soon.  It'll be a sad day.

Day 152

The Un-Portrait
In class tonight we were doing portraits.  My new friend Sarai pointed out a different angle that I liked MUCH better!  Thanks Sarai!

Day 150

Frozen Lake
I know, it looks like a sky to me too.  That's what happens when I try to take landscapes, the sky always seems much more interesting.

Day 149

Around the House
Once again I procrastinated.  I tried to find interesting things around my house and failed miserably.  Oh well.

Day 148

It's a Happy Day!
Cecily and I FINALLY got sushi!  I was very proud of her, she went in a little afraid but ended up liking real sushi better than fake (or cooked).  It was a happy day.

Day 147

I'm taking a photography class, and this week we're working on landscapes (which as we all know, I suck at).  I'm trying though!  I went looking for one today and I didn't exactly find a landscape, I found a skyscape.  

I know exactly what the teacher is going to say about this photo.  "You have several different pictures within this picture."  My response?  "Well, that's what I like about it." :-)

Day 146

Tonight I'm all about "free advertising."  We had a camera club meeting tonight and one of my favorite photographers to "blog stalk" came to speak to us.  It was really great listening to her and learning from her experience.  If you haven't yet, check her website out or she has a blog that is really great too.

Anyway, she brought her business cards in very cute container that I just had to snap...actually, I was told to snap, but it wasn't hard. :-)

Day 142

A Picture of a Picture

Just got back from my first official art gallery "opening." Granted, I'm only one of over a hundred on display, but my name is on the wall and everything. It feels good.

I wanted to post a picture of Johnny, but she wouldn't let me. Ah well.

Johnny posted her own picture here. Check it out, she's really good!
