East Side City Lights

This is a very old photo (an early attempt with my first digital camera). It’s a study in mistakes. Technically, it’s just… awful. Still, I kinda like it for some reason. Maybe it’s the somewhat eerie colors illuminating those wisps of smoke… maybe it just reminds me of how excited I was to be taking photos… or maybe I’ve just bounced off my head one too many times. Either way, have a great weekend, everyone!

Dish Soap Abstract

Kinda makes me think ‘The Matrix’. With Apple Blossom Scent.

Cypher: “I know what you’re thinking, ’cause right now I’m thinking the same thing. Actually, I’ve been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn’t I take the BLUE pill?”

Movable Type

Gently used stamps taking a soak. That’s about all I’ve got today. I often have difficulty ‘using my words’, you know.

Q: “I… am a writer.” [applause]

Coffee Maker Bits

Recently discovered: coffee makers contain bits-n-pieces that are fun to photograph. Even if said machine does little to improve upon the taste of a glass of Coke. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Charlie Mackenzie: “Excuse me, miss… there seems to be a mistake… I believe I ordered the large cappuccino. HELLO!  Look at the size of this thing!”

Chica del Sol

I’m not sure what’s up with all the color I’ve been using lately. Too much sun, maybe. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Buster Bluth (climbs out of car trunk): “Mexico.”

Narrator: “In fact, Buster was in Santa Ana, a town six minutes inland from his own, but the combination of losing his glasses and breathing carbon monoxide had impaired Buster’s judgement.”

Buster Bluth (seeking shelter under a trampoline): “Eeehhh… this shall keep me safe from the hot Mexican sun. ”

Ice Abstract No. 1

Leave it to me to trash the entire blogosphere with a rapidly melting post. Now where did I leave that mop again?

Harry Dunne (with his tongue stuck to a frosty chairlift pole): “Hi there! Say, kids… you wouldn’t happen to have a cup of warm water, would ya?!”
