I don't feel at all like I fall

The past few days have been nice, and due to many of my friends going out of town for wrestling, I have been able to take it easy and get some rest. Last night a few of us got together at my house and it was very laid-back, relaxed, free. I took a few pictures around my house early Saturday, and a couple more that night before all the people got there(Click the photos to enlarge them). Oh Ya, and by the way, I am going to be in the presence of Isaac Brock tonight. That's right. I am going to the Modest Mouse concert.

-Clint Alwahab noticed a small detail in the opening shot that I didn't think would be seen by anyone. This forced me to make some minor edits, props to you Clint.








































And in case you're wondering, the pictures of my name and the swirls of light we taken using manual aperture and a flashlight.

i don't really know what to say, but that your pictures are...are...interesting, but in the good sense of the word interesting. they are just something you could look at for a long time and find something new and unique about them everytime you look back at 'em. they are really good, actually phenomenal.

The leaf in the gutter is my favorite, but now, the stop sign with the trees in the background, is a close second..."Wicked cool!"
Like Meaghan said,"...you can look at them for a long time..."
You really have to start thinking about submitting these to a publisher or at least think about self publishing. For me, the two photos above, touch a sadness within me, but I even like the one where the cat is kickin' it on the couch...another good photo.
All bullshit aside, if you ever publish a series of your work, please email me so I can start looking for it.Thanx! On second thought, so I don't give out my email to the wrong person, just post it on my blog: http://welcometomymadness33.blogspot.com/

Yeah, I thought it was kind of cool and surprising that it turned out like that. There were about five or six people watching me take the shot and I'm surprised no one said anything about them in the background. But then again, it was almost totally dark at the time.

so did you take a photography class or are you just a naturaly talented? it's a really cool gift either way.

I haven't taken any classes, I've just always been into drawing, art, etc. About three years ago I started taking pictures, and ever since photography has been one of my favorite activities. Byt he way, I was reading some of your blog...you seem very interesting, thanks for the input.

thanks! i'm sure it has been somewhat depressing for the past week, but things are looking up! anyway, i have always been into drawing and art stuff too. i just got into photography this year, but i have a digital camera and it's not that good, but i guess it gets the job done...kinda. i have alot to learn. :)
