My heart and prayers go out to the people of Moore, Oklahoma as they struggle to overcome and find their lives after the tornado tore through their town and life on May 20, 2013. The stories that are pouring out on the news are unbelievably heartbreaking. You can find links on the side bar for more information about my work and products along with the music of Leannan Sidhe. Thank you for viewing, and for adding your prayers for those who struggle.
Today the wife and I rode around all day continuing our search for other homes, to be sure we have exhausted new home possibilities as we have basically chosen the location and other things regarding a new construction home. Tomorrow we plan to enlist the help of a real estate agent to once again have a look at some existing homes in locations that have an HOA in place and that are no more than five years old, and be within a very specific part of the valley which will be the area we live in right now. More to come on that, this is very exciting stuff for us! Our little twelve hundred square foot apartment is a good little place to stay whilst we get things rolling for new home construction or possibly an existing home. All options must be exhausted to our mutual satisfaction. Oh, I said that. We are pretty beat after being out all day but still wanted to go for another after dark rive. There is nothing like the ninety degree desert heat at night blowing through your car… So warm
Some pretty exciting changes have been happening in my career/social life as of the past few weeks. Not only did I get to go on a pretty classic double date (mini golf was included and I lost horribly!) but the chance to collaborate with a one of my favorite photographers is in the works. We both are over the top busy (who isn’t) but have been scheming some epic shoots letting pinterest be our meeting ground. Seeing we have never worked together before our mutual board is a way for us to see how our styles connect. In my research enabled me to dig deep into one of my favorite blogs, Dust Jacket and found a theme in my inspiration. Extremely floral wallpaper- even the matchy-matchy is working it’s magic on me. These photos make me have flashbacks to my first job at a wallpaper/paint store. Tearing out discontinued styles then making epic collages on my bedroom walls. Bright and colorful perfect for an accent wall. I have the perfect wall in my house (if I owned it) or foun
This “challenge” has multiple parts. See, I have never taken advantage of the “slideshow” capability to showcase a photo gallery. So, this is a first for me. Hopefully, if you’re patient, you will be able to get the full effect of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme from the Daily Post at WordPress. The theme is “Escape”. My take on this theme is a series of photos I took of a Great Egret moving along a fallen tree branch along the shores of the Cedar River near Ellis Park in Cedar Rapids, IA. These birds are elusive to say the least. In this series, the egret is escaping my close vantage point to make it more challenging for me to get a clear, detailed shot of him. Again, let the slides load. I hope this works!
Contrary to the idea of gamers as lonely shut-ins, PAX East was full of exhibitionists and show-boaters. Here’s some photos of them from a visit to the Boston-based gaming convention last month. (Click the photos) The Cosplayers Just because you left behind your World of Warcraft account doesn’t mean the role-playing has to end. Of the thousands packed into the Boston convention center, hundreds came dressed as some video game character, a practice known as cosplay. It was a great opportunity for photos, and most cosplayers love the attention, just like you’d expect of a guy who goes around shirtless pretending to be Prince of Persia. But posed photos didn’t feel sporting, so I tried to shoot some of them in a candid, street photography style. The Scout, from Team Fortress 2 Not sure what this is referencing. What game has a plague doctor in it? Assassin’s Creed? Convention-goers crowd for photos of two fantasy game cosplayers The True Otaku The reason you
