02.10.2013 – It Rained on Sunday…


Also, I finally finished assembling the support for my next project (fingers crossed that painting will be done / posted around the end of the month). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Forrest Gump: “One day, it started raining… and it didn’t quit for four months!  We’ve been through every kind of rain there is: little bit of stinging rain… and big ‘ol fat rain… rain that flew in sideways… and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”

Stairs – Fort Belle Fontaine (faux wet plate collodion)


A fake ambrotype of stairs at Fort Belle Fontaine. I wanted to grab a few photos of the cannon too, but it must have fallen into enemy hands, because it was… totally… not… there.

Capt. Jack Aubrey: “Right. Starboard battery, FIRE!”

2nd Lt. William Mowett: “One minute and ten seconds!”

Capt. Jack Aubrey: “Well done, lads. Extra ration of grog for all of you!”

Crew: “Huzzah!”

Luther Tower


One of my favorite phone-camera shots yet… I was almost happy my DSLR battery died. Still, keep those batteries fully charged, people (and by people I mean… you know… me).

Scout Master Ward (of Mr. Bishop’s bruises): “What happened to him?”

Becky: “I’m not sure. I think he went searching in the dark.”

Mr. Bishop: “She stole the batteries out of my flashlight.”
