moving over to flickr

I got a new camera and am taking pictures pictures pictures. This format is to cumbersome for the volume so I'm switching over to Flickr for most picture postings. Check it through the link at the side....

quick walk

I am waiting for a new camera to arrive. New, modern, digital. In my excitement I went out with my little P&S and drew a sketch of some of the things I might want to take pictures of around town. Here it is:

New Years Resolution

Last year I made two New Years resolutions: to go to the doctors and to read twelve books in twelve months. This morning I slept in and missed my doctor's appointment, but the other day I finished "Portrait of the Artist as a Young man" and thus fulfilled my second resolution. Here's a list of the books I read this year in chronological order:

What is the What, Dave Eggers, 2006
Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami, 1987
Timbuktu, Paul Auster, 2000
Demian, Hermann Hesse, 1919
Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card, 1985
Regarding the Pain of Others, Susan Sontag, 2007
Ghosts, John Banville, 1993
The Ongoing Moment, Geoff Dyer, 2006
Netherland, Joseph O'neill, 2008
Sputnick Sweetheart, Haruki Murakami, 1999
The Devil and Miss Prym, Paul Coelho, 2000
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce, 1916

Maybe at a later date I'll write blurbs about each book, or maybe I'll just start on next years list...

i took a walk


Half of the front room is given over to my plants, precious junk and studio space. Here's a little trip through it.

Here's some updates in my life. Most of my time takes place at school, and I don't have any pictures from there. Maybe next time. But these are some snippets of the past two month:

this root-ball is the best!

my new lens!!: fuji 135mm 5.6, fast and crisp. If you mujst know I have a box of color negatives sitting on the light table waiting to be scanned. So, this is the only image I've made with it so far...
