2010 Photos So Far

I haven't taken very many pictures in the first third of the year. Partly this is because most of my travel has been by bike and I don't usually want to carry around a bulky camera bag just in case I see something interesting on the way to work. Also, I tend to take fewer pictures during winter months because it's dark, cold, and not full of lovely plants.

I combined all my good photos from January to March in one album including several of me making funny faces wearing hats.
All the pictures I took in April were on a trip to San Francisco for an awesome steampunk wedding featuring [livejournal.com profile] slyviolet and [livejournal.com profile] wyldelf. I also took some good San Francisco street shots and Google's T-Rex wearing a tutu and disguise glasses.

With another trip to California this week and a festival every month or so for the next four months, my camera should be clicking with higher velocity.

P.S.: Happy Beltane to everyone and Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] akkhima!

This shot on The Wedge is one of my favorite pictures from burning man because it captures, better than most, the energy and immediacy of the moment as well as the creative repurposing of everyday objects. NSFW if your work is nipplephobic.

Album Cover Meme

Make Your Own:

1 - Name of band: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

2 - Tile of album: last four or five words of the last quote on http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

3 - Album cover: third picture on http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days

4 - Assemble in photoshop or paint or whatever

1 came from Stetson University Campus Historic District. I assume the band formed while in school and wanted a name that would make people say "That's a weird name for a band."

2 is the end of "A loud voice cannot compete with a clear voice, even if it's a whisper." -- Barry Neil Kaufman

3 is from nikkiethh and is a great fit for the album title.

4 was the GIMP because GraphicConverter didn't have very crisp text when flattening.

Audience participation: Pretend you just listened to this album. Write a review!

2008 In Photos

The Boston Globe's year in photographs part 1, part 2, and part 3. This looks only slightly crazier than when I was there a week before. "A Guangzhou train station" was the ultimate measure of displeasure on our trip. From time to time, whether doing something awesome or just relaxing, we'd say "This is SOOO much better than a Guangzhou train station!"

I think half of being a good photographer is standing in the right place.

Denver Needs Cameras

Democracy in Progress: Keep Out
(Democracy in Progress: Keep Out. The Pepsi Center, where important Democratic business shall take place, is fenced off with security personnel harassing people who take pictures from public sidewalks.)

I'm taking this week off work so I can photograph (and possibly participate in) demonstrations and other interesting activities around the Democratic National Convention in downtown Denver this week. My first update priority will be my Flickr page, but I'll try to make a daily LiveJournal post as well. Flickr will be a "best of" collection, but I'll upload everything in full resolution to my gallery as well and sort it out later.

Creative Commons License All photographs I take around the DNC will be free for use under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license (CC BY-SA). If you use the pictures, I'd appreciate a note about where and how.

I just posted my photos from August. Events include Dragonfest, a visit to Ft. Logan Military Cemetary, a company camping trip to Lake Granby, and a short hike on Berthoud Pass.

Procrastination end #1: Dropped my car off for repairs.

[i2Tones]Procrastination end #2: Uploaded and arranged photographs from December and January. This image is from the My Morning Jacket show on 1/13. One secret of producing good photographs is to take a lot of photographs and ignore the bad ones. I sent my best five (out of 159) to the band's website; one of my pictures is the thumbnail for the Denver shows.

Pictures from October are up on my website. For the most part it's a sunset and a sunrise, but there's some pictures of a pie in the face in the middle if you get bored of pretty colors.

After a month of alternately not using my home computer and agonizing over which photographs to share with the world, I've organized my pictures from Norway, September (mostly pictures of people), and August (mostly pictures from Dragonfest).

Hopefully I will soon provide a narrative pictureful post or put captions on all the pictures, but you can entertain your eyes starting... now.

Last weekend I noticed OK Cupid was having a photo contest -- send in a picture of two or more OK Cupid members and perhaps win a prize. So I sent my laptop's background image, taken at Matt Sturtz's wedding by a professional wedding photographer.

[livejournal.com profile] tamheals just called me to tell me that we're on the front page. Sure enough, there we are, along with several messages from OK users impressed with my beard. Seriously, does match.com do anything this cool?

But now I feel a little silly. We didn't sign a Certificate of Common Law Marriage. We signed an Affidavit of Common Law Marriage. A certificate implies it's given by an authoritative entity, but an affidavit is just you saying something.
