ApathyI've come to a sad realization. I'm apathetic. I have exactly 2 weeks to go on this project, and I feel like I could quit today and be just fine. In fact, I took a picture of the inside of my lens cap tonight and came really close to posting it. But before you panic and start lecturing me, know this, I DON'T WANT TO FEEL THIS WAY!!! So, I'm asking you, dear readers (can I call you readers? Do you read pictures?) for help. Tell me how you motivate yourself! How do you go from apathy to enthusiasm?
I NEED MODELS! I'll take anyone or anything. I'll give you prints for your Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, Second Cousins twice removed... I'll sing you a song, I'll even pay YOU...it may be $5, but it's $5 you didn't have before...

Ogden High SchoolNot long ago, my friend Sarah requested some photos. This was one on her list, as well as one I had been wanting to photograph for a while. Ogden High is one of 3 Art Deco Buildings in Ogden built during the depression (the Municipal Building and the Forest Service Building are the other two). They are said to be "exceptionally important as the most significant Art Deco structures in Ogden and the State of Utah." And was in fact a New Deal, WPA Building.
So, there you go Sarah, the first from your list. And no, it's not tacky to request art. :-)

Baylee's Haunted HouseMy niece Baylee has been wanting me to photograph this house for most of the year, and we finally went today. Baylee was very brave even when she saw a creepy statue in the window. :-)
AND she brought a camera and got some pretty great shots. It was a very proud moment for me!

It's a Sign!My friend Sarah called me today and asked me if I had a picture of the Ogden Sign. I said sure and I'd send her a copy (it's Day 20 if you are wondering). Well, the more I looked at it, the more I thought..."I can do better than that!"
So, here's the attempt. I don't know if it's better, but it's different. :-)

Karma ThistleToday Lara and I were talking about what we are going to shoot in our last month. Lara said that she wanted to shoot horses (well...not shoot...you know what I mean) and we decided to take some field trips. Well, I found a very pretty horse on my photo hunt tonight and thought I'd take a few pics. Needless to say, that horse would NOT cooperate. Every time I set up a great shot it would move just as I was pressing the shutter. KARMA! I'm telling you!

Rotini alla MozzarellaIt's actually called Fusilli alla Caprese, but my Dad thought Rotini alla Mozzarella sounded funnier. Whatever it's called, combined with garden fresh tomatoes and basil, it was delicious!
p.s. Yesterday's bread was really yummy with this pasta!
Okay, friends (Michelle, Naomi, Leanne, Emily...) I hear you. I've been thinking a whole lot about what is going to happen at the end of this project and the answer to that question is...I don't know. I'm pretty sure I will ALWAYS have a photo blog, but I just don't know what it's going to be. I do know 2 things. First - I need a break! Second - I'm not going to leave you hanging. I promise!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has been so loyal and supportive from the beginning AND those of you who "came late to this party." There is no way I could have done this without you!!!

Where I WorkWhile I was walking in to my office this morning it struck me how lovely the courtyard at my office is. The Eccles Community Arts Center is really a beautiful place, and while I've shot many, many things close up in this courtyard, I haven't taken a lot of pictures of it as a whole.
p.s. This is the opposite view of Day 1.

Happy ThoughtsI spent some time looking for a photo today and just wasn't feeling it. BUT when I sat down to dinner with Zenobia & Connie, all I had to do was snap one shot and I was done. These two girls just make me smile!
Guess what folks? As of today, we have ONE month to go! And while this project hasn't been particularly easy, it has definitely been rewarding and extremely eye opening. Now though, it's getting hard. So send along your happy thoughts and good juju, I'm going to need them!!!

Dude Looks Like a LadyWe took Zenobia and Connie to a baseball game tonight and I've come to the conclusion that baseball fans are just ... odd. This made no sense to me at all, dragging the infield in a dress ... I guess I'm just too artsy fartsy for baseball. :-)
p.s. They played "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" while they were making fools of themselves ... hence the title.

Vacation Day 10 - Norris Geyser BasinOnce again, I have about a million pictures to choose from... this time, I pretty much just had to flip a coin. ...Hello, Gorgeous, Wish you were here... again, doesn't even come close to doing it justice.

Vacation Day 9 - Yellowstone Park, Lower Falls
My question coming in to the Park today was "Where is the yellow stone?" The answer, at the Lower Falls. I have about 250 pictures of the park, and let's just say...Yellowstone is rather photogenic. But this was my favorite spot, and this picture doesn't even come close to doing it justice.

Vacation Day 7 - Some of my Favorite WomenThese women may not be happy with me posting this picture, but I think they are amazing and beautiful women. So there. I love the camp fires at the lake, there is just something about sitting around a fire with the people you love the most in the world. Don't ask me why, but I think it is heaven.
p.s. They are (left to right) My sister Emily, my Aunt Carol, my Mom, my sister-in-law Meg, and my sister-in-law Nicki.
