Here Goes

Now that I have everything working, time to post some pictures. It is a photoblog after all. So without further ado, two pictures that I took last night. Both are very long exposures taken at night.

Old Abe

I was wandering around and decided to stop and take a picture of my old high school mascot. He's "Old Abe" the Civil War eagle. He came from my area of Wisconsin and was the mascot for a Civil War regiment from our state.

Church Window

This is a church in my city, I don't attend it but it has a lovely stained glass window that's lit up for a few hours every night.

Nothing horribly exciting, just my car.

Dilated

I went to the eye doctor today (well, yesterday really) and ended up with VERY large pupils.

Liquid

Since I have a PhotoBlog now, I'm going to participate in my first Theme Thursday today! This is my boy Dolce enjoying a bath. When he takes a bath he goes nuts. He can spray water over an entire room. He's quite enthusiastic!

My first submission to Photojunkie's 100K Photocontest.

This red is in my hand or next to me just about 24/7. I know, I know, it's bad for me. But sometimes you just really need some caffeine!

And the second submission to Photojunkies 100K Photocontest.

My eye after a trip to the eye doctor. It always amazes me how big a pupil can get. You can just see my hand and the camera in my pupil too.

New & Old

My old glasses, and my new glasses. I just picked them up today (well, technically yesterday). The new ones are the smaller ones. I'm practically blind without them, after this last trip to the eye doctor my eyes are now at 20/600. You know the big E on the eye test chart? It doesn't even exist for me.

Artsy-Fartsy On the Way

IWTB was kind enough to drive me to the airport and I decided to try to capture the passing lights at 5 a.m.

Car Lights

Meeting People

There were "character actors" there as well as the big stars. Here's two of them. Brian Thompson is first. He was the Bounty Hunter on X-Files and since IWTB is a tad obsessed with the X-Files I got an autograph from him, for her. This picture is him, me, and the picture he signed for IWTB. And before you say anything... yes I know I look like a dork.

Me & Brian Thompson

So, I'm walking along one of the tables and looking at the pictures and saw some Farscape pictures. They were all of Zhaan. Then I looked up and Zhaan was sitting RIGHT THERE! OK, really she was Virginia Hey. I had no idea she was going to be there, so that was quite exciting! She was really sweet and signed a beautiful picture for me.

Me & Virginia Hey

Now For Some Pretty Photos...

These palms (at least I think that's what they were) were right outside my hotel.

Palm Fronds


And a pink rose bush that was outside the convention center.

Same photo, different croping.

Last, For Now

I had a 2 hour layover in Vegas on my way home. Sittin' there playing with my laptop and looked up and noticed a really cool reflection happening on the window. There were multiple layers of glass and that made it kind of echo. I thought it was cool anyway.

Vegas Window

One More

I hit my 1000th photo on my cool new digital camera in Phoenix on my way to the convention. It's nothing special, but since it's number 1000 I decided to post it!

Meds

I just got my meds refilled and felt a little Artsy-Fartsy, so here's my meds! It may cost me $2/day (or per pill) but it's a small price to pay to stay sane.







You Know You're in Vegas When...

This is my Theme Thursday entry. It's the sign that you're in Vegas. It was very strange. You walk off the plane and immediately hear the noises and dings and clanks of slot machines. They're everywhere, including all the terminals!

Out West

It sure seemed like we were out west today. We had these tumbleweed things all around the building at work. They started to collect right next to the door and we ended up with a pile at least 3 or 4 feet high of them just blowing around out there. And since I'm constantly taking pictures now... I took pictures of it!








October 6, 2002

Danger, Danger, Danger

Whenever I see one of these signs it makes me laugh. Maybe it's just my overactive imagination, but I always picture the driveway getting up and attacking something. Watch out! or the driveway will get ya! Yeah I know, I'm weird.

Squirrely Buddy

There are a number of white squirrels in my city, I saw one of them while doing errands today and just had to stop and take a few pictures of him.

Colors Starting

The leaves are just starting to turn here. I'm going to have to go leaf peeping this weekend I think. Yes... it really is called leaf peeping!

Theme Thursday Time

I really enjoyed this week's Theme Thursday topic. I work at a TV station and am surrounded by technology every day. I bounce between three to four different computers, plus a video switcher all day. This particular picture was taken back in the equipment room. This is just one of three racks of equipment in the room. There's also a server room, a phone line/circuit breaker room, the weather equipment area, plus the controls for three satellite dishes, not to mention the control room itself which has LOTS more equipment. There are more pictures of work in my Photo Album and I'll probably be posting a few more of my theme pictures here in the next couple hours.

Well, that was a lot of verbage for a PHOTOblog!

More Technology

This is just a small part of the phone system coming into our building. The number of wires just amazes me.

Drunken College Kids

It's homecoming weekend at the local college. Just out of curiousity I decided to drive down Water St. (where all the bars are) to see just how many people were out. There were a LOT of drunk people. I took some pictures, 'cuz that's what I do!

This is the crowd outside one of the rowdier bars. I've never been inside it. (and don't plan to) The crowd was spilling into the street from most of the bars, but I like the way this one is sharp in some spots and all blurred in others.
Nasty Habit Crowd

More people outside another one of the bars.
More Crowds

My car was moving when I took this one, so it's all blurred, but I really like the way it looks. I'm not sure why. I guess it's my impression of what being drunk must feel like. I've never had any alcohol, so I don't know, but that's the way I imagine it.
Drunk in My Mind

We're open, open, open, open, open, open....

And of course what homecoming would be complete without the cops?

It's starting to get cold out and the ladybugs are trying to find warm places to stay. They've found my bedroom!

I had a wonderful day today. It was nice and cool, beautiful bright blue sky, a few little puffy white clouds. I spent more than 2 hours outside just taking pictures of everything changing. Beautiful!

We had an open house at work today. Lots of people and lots of helium balloons. After everyone left we shoved them all into one little room and had fun!

Theme Thursday

So, I'm doing my Theme Thursday on a Friday. Ah well. This weeks theme is "Silly" so without further ado here is my silly frog blanket thing.
Silly Froggy

It was a present from IWTB. It's a medium sized blanket in the shape of a frog's body, with a giant stuffed frog head attached! I have a huge collection of frogs and he is by far the largest. You can see one of my other frogs on the right (it's little and quite round). Maybe someday I'll post pictures of more of my froggys.

Just Pretend

OK, so if everyone pretends it's still Monday it will be right? So, on three let's all pretend...
one...

two...

three...

Poof!

There, it's Monday. What? It isn't? Are you sure? Oh well, it was worth a try anyway.

Here's some pictures I took on Monday, but didn't have time to upload until Tuesday. I was having fun with long exposures while in a moving vehicle (a very BOUNCY moving vehicle!)

Car Tracers

This one I flipped to negative in PhotoShop and really liked that way! So, I'm posting it.

It's Negative!

Bubbles

I've never had any luck blowing bubble-gum bubbles. I just can't seem to get anything bigger than a tennis ball. But... IWTB can blow bubbles. I was trying to take a picture of one of her bigger ones, and ended up with this bubble in mid pop. I love the ragged edges where it's tearing.

POP!!

Money Hole

This is the inside of one of those tubes that takes your money up and into the bank. I stuck my camera inside one and snapped away.

This little guy was making noise on the top of my air conditioner. When I stuck my head above the window sill to try to take his picture, he flew off. But, he landed just a few feet away on a wire coming into my apartment.

So I'm a little late with my Theme Thursday. Well, not that late, it's only one day after Thursday after all. Anyway... here is my porch in shadows.

Rear View

I posted this over at Common Threads, but I liked it so much I decided to post it in my own space too! The driver's side mirror of my car. (don't worry I was stopped at a red light when I took the picture) The construction barrels are visible back there, Thankfully the 4+ months of construction is almost over!!!! WOOOOO!!!!

In This Room...

After a short "I'm sick and don't feel like doing anything" hiatus. I'm ba-ack! This is a picture I took, changed to black & white, added a single color to, and then added text to. It's patterned after an ad in a TV Technology magazine that I thought was really cool. So I decided to make my own with MY control room.

My Bro

My brother is home from college for the weekend. He's kind of a dork. My parents have a door stopper attached to the wall where the door knob hits the wall. It was making a huge dent, so they put this soft plastic rubbery thing on the wall there. My brother decided that he wanted to stick this thing to his forehead. What can I say, I come from a family of weirdos!

Dorky Brother


After he noticed me taking pictures, he decided to make a goofy face. The guy in the background is his friend Dave.

Tommy & Dave


And once he took the thing off of his forehead he had a gigantic black and blue mark where it was. He's going to go back to school on Monday looking like he has an alien girlfriend who likes to suck his forehead!

Snack?

My parents just got back from a trip to Japan. They were visiting missionaries and one of them gave them a couple packages of these things. I have no idea what they're called, but apparently they're a common snack over there. One of the missionary kids eats them constantly. Personally I have to say ICK! But, to each his own I guess. And yes, they really are little fishies.

Parental Birthdays

Since my brother was home for the weekend, we decided to celebrate both of my parent's birthdays. My mom on Saturday, and my dad on Sunday. It technically isn't his birthday until the 8th, but since my bro was home we did it now. This is my dad before & during the candle blowing out. You can either try to count them, or trust me when I tell you that there are 54 candles on that cake.

Photo Op

I was driving from work to go vote and saw this hydrant gushing water. There wasn't anyone around, and it was too good to pass up!

Doin' my Duty

I was a good girl and went to vote yesterday. I got a few strange looks while I was snapping pictures of the sign, but that's okay with me.

If anyone is horribly curious, I did indeed vote for the Green Party candidate for WI governor. The rest I hopped between the Dem's and the Republicans. I just couldn't bring myself to vote for either of the main party candidates. So I went with a third party candidate that I respect, like, and agree with on most of the issues.

Anyway... here's my pics for today.

Theme Thursday

This week's Theme Thursday is Babies. I've got two pictures for it. The first one is me and my feathered baby Dolce. Whenever I talk about him, I refer to him as "my baby" so he's quite applicable to this week's theme.

Feathered Baby

I didn't take this next picture, IWTB did. This is her neice Hannah. She was born June 19th at 1 lb. 12 ozs. She's up above 9 lbs. now but is still stuck at the hospital. IWTB and Hannah's mom Nikki went to visit on Halloween (very cute chilli pepper outfit pics to come) and they took my camera. So... Hannah is now part of my Theme Thursday!

I'm Back

I've not been feeling like taking pictures lately so I've been AWOL for the past week or so. But the meteor shower Monday night/Tuesday morning was an amazing opportunity. I didn't manage to capture any meteors, but I did get a couple of pictures that I think are pretty cool. The moon behind the clouds and a long exposure of the trees and the stars.

Moon Road

Starry Night

Easy One!

This week's Theme Thursday is collections. This was a very easy one for me, at least the idea was easy. The execution of said idea took me the past 2 hours!

I have a huge frog collection. (none of them are alive though) I photographed a handful of them, cut them out, and put them all together in one picture. There's the piano playing frog, the crystal frog, the frog pin, a few stuffed frogs, a frog container... I also have frog keychains, and wooden frogs, and frogs with suction cup feet, there's a frog blanket too. Not to mention the frog t-shirts and frog tote bag! The bowl with the frog in the middle I made back in high school in a pottery class.

If you haven't run screaming from the crazy frog lady yet, here's the picture!

I took these the other night after work. It's amazing what you can do at night with a controllable shutter. For these I left my shutter open for 2 seconds and then bumped the levels just slightly in PhotoShop.

The Pen!

The Pen
The pen was Karen's door prize at the company holiday party. But this isn't an everyday kind of pen. It's a vibrating pen! It came with an interesting diagram and instructions for where to use it to um... well... relieve stress. Remember this was a company party.

Amputated Tree

This is what's left of the crab-apple tree that has been in my parents' back yard since we moved in when I was 3 or 4. I remember picking up the mooshy berries for a quarter a bucket (big money!) and getting yelled at for climbing it. And the delicious crabapple jelly my mom made. It was a very cool tree and every time I pull into the driveway now I miss it.

February 21, 2003

Theme Thursday

Now that I've got my photoblog up and running again, I'm going to start participating in this again. Here we go!

My little cousin Luke always makes people laugh.

These guys laughed all night. This is actually from New Years Eve.


And of course these pictures of my brother always make me laugh. He's such a goofball!

Hannah Banana

Miss Hannah is finally home from the hospital. Actually has been for a few weeks now. Syn went to visit last night and took this picture. What a cutie!

SPORTS!!

Sports!

When it's high school tournament time there are always lots of vehicles driving around with messages on them. Especially on Sundays when the team is returning from state! I'm not sure which school or sport this one is for. Might be wrestling but I don't know for certain.

Theme Thursday

This week's theme is:

Something to Look Forward to

I'm looking forward to finishing this...

Almost There

and here's a close up of it...

Almost There Closer

I have one row of blocks left to add to this and then I can do the border and then figure out how to do the backing and stuffing. I've been working on it on and off for a very long time and now I can feel myself so close to being done and I'm all excited about it.

If anyone is interested it's all hand-pieced. Each block is a different blue fabric. It's a pattern called "Snowballs"

March 11, 2003

Newsies are Messy!

Bathroom Mess

I walked into the bathroom at work and saw a huge mess and just had to take a picture!

More Quilt

Quilt

Last night (or more acurately very early this morning) I finished the main part of my quilt! All the piecing is finished. I just have the border, backing, and stuffing to figure out. Anyone know how to quilt? Know what I should do next? Here's another picture just 'cuz I'm so gosh darn proud of myself.

Weird Weather

Footsteps in the Snow

I took this picture late Wednesday night, when it snowed an inch or so. Today it was 61 degrees and there was a pond in my back yard! Spring weather is just so strange.

Someone was Inked!

Syn's Tattoo

The almost finished product.

Syn got it done this morning. The only thing left after this picture was to color the eye red. I think it looks really cool. Not that I'd ever get one! There will shortly be more pictures of the entire outing.

First Picnic

First Spring Picnic

It's such a gorgeous day today that after the tattooing Syn and I decided to go get lunch and eat it in the park. It was apparently 68 degrees today which is just insanely warm compared to what we've had lately.

It was the First Picnic of Spring!

Even my bird is geeky! He flew to this perch and then sat there for probably an hour before he decided he wanted to be somewhere else.

Theme Thursday

OK, I took pictures for last week's theme but I forgot to upload them! Silly me. And I'm having a really hard time coming up with something for this week's theme. So, I'm just going to upload last week's and call it even.

Last week's theme was Heritage

Heritage 1

Heritage 2

In my parent's basement there is one long wall that Mom has covered with family pictures. Some are newer, and some are from long ago. It's very cool and I really like it.

March 22, 2003

Cache Puppy

Puppy at the Cache

While Syn and I were doing some maintenance on our cache this little gal found us and just wanted to be petted! She hung out with us the whole time we were out there. She very much seemed like a puppy. Pretty much full grown, but under a year old. Very playful and just a complete sweetheart.

Birthday Wishes

It's not my brother's birthday until the middle of April, but he's home now for spring break (and my parents are home too) so we celebrated his birthday today! He'll be 22. My little brother is getting so old!

Linux?

When Syn and I were geocaching last weekend we passed this restaurant. All I could think was, Do they eat Linux in there? Yeah, I know. I'm a dork.

Ice

Menards Ice

Menards Ice

Menards is based in my home town. The guy that owns it is not the greatest guy, but the fountains in front of Menards HQ were great fodder for photos. There's these two huge fountains in front of the building, during the summer they're really pretty. In the winter thought, they freeze (this is Wisconsin after all) and for some reason he doesn't turn them off! So, we end up with these huge ice block things. Very funny looking.

I went over to my uncle's (and his wife's of course) house for dinner with my parents. And this is his cat Dory (yes, she really is rather fat, she's on a diet now though) She's somewhere around 10 years old, she was abandoned near my parent's house and my uncle adopted her. There's a story to go along with that, maybe I'll work on writing that down next.

The other day Dolce decided to climb onto my futon and then down onto some clothes that were hanging off the back of it. He hung around on it for quite a while just climbing around before he flew off to another play place.

Dolce will let me flip him onto his back and he'll just lie there and enjoy getting his head scritched. That's a trusting birdie right there.

This week's Theme Thursday is: Red.

I was tempted to cheat a little and use this entry from September. But I decided to take this instead!

Shattered

Head On

My first view of the car. I was expecting more damage to the front of it, but I must have gone off the edge and then rolled over to the right. Not munching the front like I thought. The roof is pretty dented, but considering I rolled twice it's really not that bad. Nothing really going inside where I was (thankfully!)

Passenger Side

Grass was sticking out of it everywhere, and the police tape is still trailing around it!

Flowering Season

Easter Lillies

I went grocery shopping last night after work and there was a big display of Easter Lillies. I've always loved these flowers. It's one of the few really strong scents that I actually enjoy. I always love walking into church on Easter Sunday and being met by a wall of smells wafting from the front of the sanctuary. They're up there with Pansies as one of my favorite flowers.

April 17, 2003

Theme Thursday

I had a lot of fun with this week's theme. There's two parts to it, the second part is down in the extended entry.

The theme is: Words
I'm such a visual person that words always have images attached to them for me. As soon as I got the theme in my e-mail, I started seeing words everywhere. This is what I ended up with!

There was a fire very early this morning just outside of town. We went to go shoot video and of course I took pictures!

Fire Truck

Kramer at the Fire

This one is the morning producer, Kramer, talking to one of the firefighters.

Theme Thursday

It's Theme Thursday time!

This week is: music

I had a lot of fun with this one. I've taken piano lessons since I was seven and I couldn't resist the opportunity to take pictures of my (well, my mom's) piano.

Black & White

Teeny Tiny

These are some lilac buds from a few weeks ago when they were just starting to open.

Caddie's House

It's time for the Saturday Snapshot!

This week's assignment doesn't have a simple title, it has four steps:
1. Select something that is esthetically pleasing,
2. has unique lighting somehow,
3. something you have not photographed before,
4. and then I want you to greyscale it, and post both to show a contrast.

I took this while searching for the Caddie Woodlawn geocache. It's the place where the author of the Caddie Woodlawn book grew up. It's a really cool place. Anyway, here's the pictures!

Up, Up, and Away

It's Theme Thursday time again. This week's theme is: Up

Whenever I see these I'm always amazed that they stay up and don't all come tumbling down off of there!

Staying Up

T-Shirt Anyone?

Jerry T-shirt

I realize this doesn't look like a very exceptional moment, but it was! Really!

This guy is Jerry, the 6 and 10pm anchor at work. He always wears slacks, nice shirt, and a tie, ALWAYS. Even when he goes out after the 10, he won't change. At the most he'll take the tie off. So, when he showed up in a t-shirt, I just had to take a picture of the event!

Hairless John

My dad has had a mustache for forever. The only pictures I've ever seen of him without one are from high school or earlier. Today I went home to give my mom her Mother's Day present and when he walked down the stairs... AHHH!!!!!

He had shaved it off! He looks so bizarre! Well, to me anyway. To someone who's never seen him he probably looks just fine. But it freaked me out!

Dad Sans Mustache

Update: It occurred to me that I should include a link to my dad WITH a mustache!

Help!

OK everybody, I know I've been absent the last week or so. I've been busy and not in a posting mood. But now I need some help! Last week I took literally hundreds of photos for the America 24/7 project. I've narrowed it down to 14, and I'm going to post them all here and I'm asking for everyone to let me know what your favorites are. Thanks in advance for any help. I'm begging here everyone. They're all in the extended entry except for the one that I'm putting right here to tease you all into looking at the rest of them!

Pretty in Purple

Pretty Purple

I visited my aunt & uncle after I dropped my parents off at the airport yesterday and she always has lots of flowers and these were just so amazingly cool! If I'm remembering correctly they're called Magenta. And yes that's their natural color.

Grandma Flowers

Pansies

Yes, I know they're Pansies. She always had them. Always. So they're very important flowers, and I love them (and my grandma!) dearly.

New Kitty

I'm on Syn's computer again. Which is appropriate because I'm uploading pictures of her brand new itty bitty kitty! Say hello to Kieran.

Cutie!

Giggles

It's probably just me, but this sign made me laugh.

Huh?

I think it's the hole being dug in the hand that seems odd to me. But then again, maybe I'm just weird... (you can stop laughing now)

More Kitties

The weekend weather chick at work just got a cat on Thursday. We all went over to meet him tonight on our collective dinner break.

Quincy

His name is Quincy and he's about 9 months old. He's amazingly mellow and friendly. And quite the handsome fellow!

And no, this spurt of posts doesn't mean I have my 'puter back. It just means I was bored at work and decided to get my pictures from my camera onto a work computer so I could upload a couple.

June 20, 2003

She's Ba-ack!

I finally have my 'puter back and I'm participating in my first Photo Friday in a long time. This week's challenge is: Critters

New Roomates

Of course you were all expecting a picture of my Dolce (he's the green one if you're new around here) but now there's a new roomate at the Sunidesus house. Our flock has expanded by one. Meet Hermione, better known as Mione. She actually belongs to Syn, but I've kind of adopted her because Syn was having a hard time with a bird and a cat. And I'm such a bird person... we are now a flock of three.

June 21, 2003

Kute Kitty

Syn's kitten Kieran is just so gosh darn photogenic! I stopped by to visit yesterday and took these.

Flash Experiment

These three pictures are from me experimenting with a flash trick that I just read about in a photography magazine. It's for taking pictures that need a flash, but the flash washes the whole thing out. Basically you just put a layer, or two, or three of tissue over the flash (not the light sensor though) and take your picture normally.

Here's the first picture, taken with the macro setting, flash turned on, camera 8 or 10 inches from the flowers:

Just Flash

Colors

Thread

This is the embroidery floss I'm using for a cross-stitch project. I've always liked the rainbow of colors and finally got around to taking a picture of it today.

And here's one more flower picture:

Motorin'

Dad and his Bike

My dad just got this a month or so ago. He had motorcycles when he was younger, but hasn't had a (working) one for a very, very long time. Mom jokes that she fell in love with his bike before she fell in love with him (and I'm not sure she isn't serious) And now they have one!

Buddy

Buddy Boy

This is Buddy, he belongs to the Sports Director at work. He's a very hyper chocolate lab mix. I think he's about a year old now, so very puppyish still. He's a sweetheart, just very easily excited!

June 26, 2003

Extremities of Thursday

It's Theme Thursday time! This week's theme is: feet

Feetsies

My feet in their natural state, bare! Without any of those evil shoes lurking about.

More Feet!

I was having fun with my camera and decided to take more Theme Thursday pictures. So enjoy some birdie feet.

Dolce Feet

Mione Feet

Bonus Entry

Just because I felt like it you're getting another post today! Are you all lucky or what?

Soft Sleeper

This is Miss Mione taking a nap. I couldn't resist. She looks so soft and cuddly. She isn't all that awfully cuddly, but she is very soft! My boy Dolce is more sleek than soft, but he's the cuddler. They are very different birds!

June 27, 2003

Photo Friday

Yesterday was Theme Thursday and now it's Friday which means its time for Photo Friday!

This week's challenge is: Angles

Angled Tower

If you couldn't guess, this is the tower at work. I have more tower pictures...

Friend in the Garden

Pansy Face

Just a pansy that I took a picture of and really liked the end result!

June 28, 2003

Dancing in the Kitchen

Dancing in the Kitchen

My parents have been taking dancing lessons for about two years now. I go home for dinner a couple times a week and inevitably a song will come up on the CD player and they'll get up and start dancing in the kitchen or the living room. I think they're adorable.

July 1, 2003

Dancing Water

Water at Night

There's this little park downtown. I drive past it at least once a week. But I never noticed this fountain in the middle of it until tonight. Driving past, a flash of purple caught my eye and I slowed down to figure out what it was. It was lit and created this great cove kind of feeling in the middle of the park.

July 3, 2003

Lellow

My Theme Thursday entry for this week...

The theme is: Yellow

Little Yellow

Not the best flower picture I've ever taken :P but it works I suppose.

July 4, 2003

Photo Friday

I like the end of the week. It means it's time for photo memes! And those are always fun.

Here's this week's Photo Friday, the challenge is Solitude.

What's That?!?!

Puppies

The puppies of a co-worker/friend contemplating Syn's Daquiri (sp?). They're German Shepards and once they decide you're not a threat they are just the sweetest things. Just about a year old now. They just wanted to be petted and have their tummies rubbed all night. I'll probably have more pictures of them later, but I need to go to the library quick before they close so that'll have to wait!

July 6, 2003

Grandpa

Grandpa was quite intent on the Legos that had been brought for my little cousin Luke to play with.

This is my little cousin Josiah. Isn't he adorable?

July 9, 2003

More Memes Please

I first saw this particular meme a week ago, and decided to participate this week.

The theme is: Reflections

Syn Gets Ready

I took this the day before my friend Syn's dance recital.

July 10, 2003

Misting Level

It's Thursday! And we all know what that means right? Yep, you got it. It's Theme Thursday time.

Theme: Ground Level

GroundLevel

Flower Bloggin'

Lily

I'm not sure what it's called in still photography, but in television this would be the beginning of a rack focus. I've been having fun experimenting with this look lately.

July 11, 2003

It's the Same!

It's Photo Friday time!

This week is: Symmetry

Symmetry

I really like this house. I just wish that it didn't have that cable in front of it! I might try to Photoshop it out once I get home tonight. But then again I might not. You never know!

July 13, 2003

Visitor

Hornet

This guy was in my stairway last night.

Say What?

I was at the pharmacy the other day picking up my meds refill. They were a little behind and I had to sit and wait for a few minutes. 90% of the time I have a book in my purse. Of course that day I didn't. I ended up just poking around and looking at stuff. I ended up taking a picture of one particular item. It's in a popup image which I don't usually do because I wanted you to read all this first! Now, when you look at the picture I want you to say the name of the product, imagine how it's pronounced. Then look at what it's used for...

Enjoy!

It's getting a little stormy tonight and the clouds looked interesting.

How Many? Going Where? With What?

It's Phototime.
This week is: Frustration

For me frustration is 17 tapes that have to go to 14 cities with 8 different combinations of commercials and 5 different timing sheets. Every. Monday.

Frustration.jpg

July 17, 2003

Foldable Theme

That time of week has come around again... the Theme Thursday kind of time.

This week's theme is: Paper

Paper.jpg

This is only a fraction of the paper we go through at work. This tub was emptied yesterday. And this is for just one room. There's another bin like it in the control room and in the front office. Good thing we recycle!

July 18, 2003

Who?

Being that it's the end of the week there's all kinds of memes happening. I had a hard time coming up with a picture for this week's Photo Friday.

The challenge this week is: Identity

Identity

I finally went with this picture, because my identity (for better or worse) is entirely too wrapped up in what I do in this chair.

July 19, 2003

How Did I Get Here?

MioneWindow

This particular Fid has a habit of freaking out and flapping madly around the room until she lands on something. This was a new place for her to end up.

July 21, 2003

Flower Blogging

BabyPansies

I have this feeling that this place is slowly turning into a flower blog. Ah well. These are flowers in my parent's yard. Mom said these are called "Johnny Jump-Ups" but I think I'm just going to call them baby pansies!

Hydrangea

I'm pretty sure Mom said this is a Hydrangea. I also have a second picture that shows them before they get their full color, but it needs to be messed with and I'm not on a computer with the right software for that at the moment so that'll have to wait.

July 23, 2003

It's a...?

Muskrat

I'm not exactly sure what this thing is. I'm guessing it's a muskrat, but I really have no idea. Maybe it's some huge mutant rat or something. I saw it on my way home from work tonight and of course I had to take a picture.

July 25, 2003

I helped Joe run some wires under the floor at work Monday night. It's actually a lot of fun messing with the computer floor and playing around under it.

Just 'Cuz

BleedingHearts2.jpg

Cis was talking about bleeding heart flowers. I looked at the photo she linked and hey I've taken a picture of that before! I hadn't posted it at the time, but figured I would now just because I was thinking about it. And hey blogs are all stream-of-consciousnessy so why not?

I managed to take a picture of my boy flying! Am I good or what? Wait... don't answer that. Just enjoy looking at my beautiful boy.

Christmas in July

NotChristmas.jpg

I took this picture on July 27 just outside the little city in southern Minnesota, Glenville. Apparently no one in town has a calendar as this clumb of shrubs was all decked out for a certain winter holiday.

This isn't really going to make sense to anyone, but this is my blog and it makes sense to me so :P

Neon Fishies

I haven't posted many pictures the last weekish. Bad photoblogger! But now it's Thursday and that gives me an excuse to post something.

The theme this week is: Neon

These are little fishies called Neon Tetras.

August 15, 2003

Are we Spiraling Down or Up?

Has it really been a week since my last post? I think so. Yikes! Well it's Thursday and we all know what that means!

This week's theme is: Spiral

VarekaiIcarian.jpg

This was taken a week ago at the amazing Cirque du Soleil. Technically I wasn't supposed to be taking pictures at all, but the announcer person at the beginning just said "no flash" so...

Anyway, the guy on the left is about to take off. You can see his arms moving. The guy on the right is in mid spin. At the end of their act these two guys were going in continuous spins (spirals if you will) for a very long time. It was incredible.

August 16, 2003

Tomorrow

I'll be going to class to learn more of this! So much fun. They're in hard shoes which I won't get to do for quite some time, but I'm having lots of fun with the soft.

IrishDance2.jpg

I know, the picture's not that great. It was horribly backlit and these are the best of the bunch.

Broken Challenge

Photo Friday time. This week's challenge is: Broken.

Broken.jpg

And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
- Luke 22:19

He was broken so that I don't have to be broken for eternity.

Guardian

Guardian.jpg

"Who are you and why do you want to come into my house?"

Weird Co-Workers

So I'm a little behind, but so what!

This week's PhotoTime theme is: Odd

And this is my very odd co-worker.
Odd.jpg

He's a tad obsessed with his tongue,

Odd2.jpg

and his butt...
but that's another story...

August 28, 2003

The Anti-Heat

This week's Theme Thursday is: Heat

Heat.jpg

I think I would go crazy (well, crazier at any rate) without this machine when it's hot out. I absolutely hate being hot. Give me the middle of winter any day.

August 29, 2003

A Neighborly Day in This Beautiwood

This weeks Photo Friday is: Neighborhood

Neighborhood2.jpg

The neighborhood of make believe. Still around even though its creator has left us.

And a two-fer!

Neighborhood.jpg

The neighborhood I grew up in. Not horribly creative I know, but that's what I think of when I think of a "neighborhood."

August 30, 2003

Fun with Liquid Nitrogen

First get one of those air duster cans. Turn it upside down and spray into a cup of some sort. Liquid will come out.

Collect a bunch of it in a cup. Frost will cover the sides and it'll steam. It's quite interesting looking!

I love my modem. I'm outside in my hammock, blogging! Best of both worlds. All my geekyness satisfied, but able to enjoy the beautiful day too.

September 3, 2003

Memories

This week's Photo Time challenge is: Glass

Mirror.jpg

I actually took this last summer. One of the last surviving parts of the old building reflecting the building as it was being torn down.

[Update: Will suggested cropping this thing tighter which had actually been my original thought. I was tired when I posted and just re-sized and uploaded and didn't crop. Now I've cropped! Check it out]

Flutterbye

Monarch.jpg

This is the first shot I've ever taken of a butterfly that I didn't completely hate, so I'm posting it! He took off just as I snapped, so it's Monarch in Motion.

September 5, 2003

Themes and Things

It's Theme Thursday time (even though it's Friday) This week's theme is: Bubbles

Bubbles.jpg

and this one too, because it's huge and it took me forever to get a shot of one of the big ones!

Bubbles2.jpg

September 6, 2003

My Duckie

It's time for Photo Friday! I know, it's Saturday. But I had a really hard time coming up with a picture for this week's challenge: Aged

Duckie.jpg

This is Duckie. I have had her since literally the day I was born. So she has aged right along with me! Her fur isn't nearly as yellow as it used to be, but she's actually still in pretty good shape. I'll try to find the pictures of her in my cradle in the hospital at the parental household tomorrow and scan those in too.

September 10, 2003

Holy Wind Chime Batman!

This week's Phototime theme is: Holey

Holey.jpg

This is a wind chime that hangs on the porch at my apartment. It belongs to my landlords obviously. Now that I think about it, it's really more of a wind thunk than a wind chime. But it makes a really cool thunk noise!

Only in Wisconsin

September 13, 2003

Anybody Need to Go?

Toilet.jpg

I think it looks kind of lonely, like it's waiting for someone.

All Alone

LonelyTree.jpg

This little thing is sprouting out of the top of a huge pile of dirt at a big contruction area near the main mall here. It's the only tree around and it just looked so pitiful! I wonder if it somehow was missed, or if someone put it there on purpose. And why? It's obviously going to need to be ripped out as it is right in the middle of the area that is under construction.

September 21, 2003

It's Shinny!

MioneEarring.jpg

Taking a good picture of Mione is difficult because she's such a light color. But I just couldn't resist snapping this one of her and her mommy Syn. Mione has a thing for shinny anything!

September 23, 2003

Working My Way Back

I haven't been blogging the last week or so, and I haven't been taking pictures either. So for this week's Phototime I'm going with a shot I took for the 26 Things scavenger hunt. The theme this week is: Communication

Communication

I had fun getting this shot. I used an almost completely black room and a long exposure (16 seconds) and left my hands in each letter's spot for 3 or 4 seconds to let the camera register it before moving again. So there ya go!

September 24, 2003

Fire!

AAHH.jpg

Syn the pyro!

September 26, 2003

Hanging Out

It's time for Theme Thursday this week's theme is: It's All Good, things that make us smile when we look through the viewfinder.

DolceHanging.jpg

I know it's expected, but I just had to post a shot of Dolce. He always makes me smile.

Beaches Below

It's now time for Photo Friday. This week's challenge is: Heights

LakeMichigan.jpg

This is the western shore of Lake Michigan from a plane coming in to land at O'Hare. (Quite a high height!) This shot really doesn't capture it all that well, but I loved the way the sand and silt looked drifting out into the lake.

October 12, 2003

One Last Time

LocalNews.jpg

This'll probably be the last Geocaching picture for the two of us for a while. Being that we don't live in the same city any more! We just had to visit our cache one last time together before I left.

Poor Stick Man...

I feel kinda sorry for the stickman dude. Look at the guy getting all stuck in the gate! It's on the gate into the parking lot at work. I giggle every time I go in to park now.

Strange Things You Might See in Rhode Island

ElderlyXing.jpg

BlueBug.jpg

Elderly crossings and Big Blue Bugs. I know the quality on the bug one is really low, but that'll happen when you take a picture out the window of the car while you're going 60 mph on the freeway and not looking at your camera.

Fuzzies

Bunny.jpg

Is that not the cutest face ever?

He's an 8 week old Netherland Dwarf and he doesn't have a name yet.

November 4, 2003

Spork!

Spork.jpg

I got a spork with my KFC the other day. And of course I just had to take a picture of it, 'cuz it's a spork!

November 6, 2003

More Bunny Goodness

BenjaminFood.jpg

BenjaminHand.jpg

And this one to try and show his size. That horribly overexposed thing in the foreground is my arm. He completely fits on my palm. And he won't get much bigger either! Full grown is about 2 pounds.

November 11, 2003

But It's Free!

I'm entering back into the world of the photo-meme living here. It's Tuesday, which means it's Phototime! This week's theme is: Signs

The advantages of bringing your camera everywhere? When you see goofy signs you can take pictures!

FreeDirt.jpg

Anyone want some free dirt?

ProvidenceSign.jpg

And a sign that you're headed for a new home.

November 12, 2003

More Weirdness

SchoolBus.jpg

Add this to the "Strange things you might see in Rhode Island". This is a school bus?

Current State of Affairs

ApartmentMess.jpg

Boxes, boxes everywhere!

ApartmentPreMess.jpg

The same room before all the boxes arrived. I'm planning to keep the fids and the bunny in this room. Right in the middle of the apartment, and very easy to clean area too!

November 14, 2003

Denied!

Theme Thursday time! This week's theme is: No Entry

I'm back to participating after not really having time to do much on-line stuff. This particular shot is pretty lame, but it was too dark outside to get the shot I really wanted. I'll probably try to take the right shot later since it'll work for Photo Friday too!

So, No Entry... Without my ID this thing won't let me in the door at work.

Christmas in Rhode Island

Ornaments.jpg

It's not quite the same, but I jerry-rigged this in my apartment so I can at least have a little bit of Christmas-y looking stuff around.

December 15, 2003

Thank You!

PattyPresent1.jpg

A package arrived today from my aunt in California! There was a note inside that said the presents inside had to be opened NOW, not to wait until Christmas. So I did what the note said!

PattyPresent2.jpg

Inside was an ornament and a really cool snowman!

Thank you Auntie Patty!

At the Pet Store

Iguana.jpg

This guy lives at one of the pet stores I use regularly. His name is Bam-Bam and there's a sign on his cage that makes me laugh. "I'm a vegetarian, but I like to snack on fingers." Isn't he handsome?

Here's a shot that shows more of him.

A Capitol Sight

RICapitol.jpg

The capitol building in Providence. I was driving around and just thought it looked pretty. There are so many gorgeous buildings here, I really need to just park downtown and wander around taking pictures.

This is from the first night Dolce and Mione could join me in Rhode Island. Thanks to Mom for dealing with all the nonsense to get them on the plane out here.

Beauty

I'm attempting once again to make my way back to the meme-ing world. Yesterday's Phototime theme was: Glass

Chandalier.jpg

This is the chandelier from the First Baptist Church in America in Providence. It really is the first Baptist church in America just like the name suggests. Roger Williams, who also founded Providence, founded it way back in the mid 1600's. The chandelier is Waterford crystal and it's more than 200 years old! Now that's glass!

Opaque Weather

It's been insanely foggy here the last couple days.

It does interesting things to the colors.

Transported Away

This week's Phototime theme is: Transportation

So, something that transports me to another place, time, planet, species, age...

Painted

Turtle.jpg

Same Name TD and I were at one of the local pet stores looking for fish for the new tank and this guy was sunning himself in one of the tanks. I couldn't resist. I think he's a painted turtle? I feel like I remember learning that ages ago. And I think they're the common one's we used to see canoeing all the time when I was little. But I could very easily be quite wrong about that!

Fishies!

FishTank.jpg

And this would be the de-icked fish tank at work. Right now we have three cherry barbs and two platys. We want to get a couple more but we have to wait for it to do an ammonia cycle thing first or else they'll die. (I'm not real up on my fish tank knowledge)

It also seems pretty likely *crosses fingers* that when the production area is remodeled we're going to get a big salt-water tank in one of the walls. Same Name TD and I are quite excited about that.

Best So Far

BabyFish.jpg

This is the best shot I've managed to get so far of the baby fish. It's awfully hard to get an in-focus shot through an aquarium! Especially of something that darts every which way for no apparent reason. For size comparison... the blue marbles are, at the most, half an inch across.

Touching

A little Phototime action tonight. The theme is: Hands

Hands.jpg

Mine doing something I'm starting to enjoy again. TD'ing. But I cannot wait until the new control room is finished and I get to use a board that works properly again! This one is literaly older than me, and no I'm not exagerating.

Making News

It's time for some Thursday Themeing. This week is: Television

So, my new control room. What? You were expecting something else? Actually pretty soon (by the middle of the summer) there'll be a brand spankin' new control room at the station. I'm really looking forward to that!

Old School Storage

OldDrive.jpg

Believe it or not we actually use this drive every day, multiple times, at work. I'm going to say it one more time. I can't wait for the new control room.

Flying Fotos

Swan.jpg

One of the various ways I get to work takes me over and past some water. It's kind of a big lake/slow river kind of thing. I've noticed a bunch of ducks, geese, and swans there every single time I take that route to work. The other day I actually had time to stop and take pictures. There's signs up saying it's illegal to feed them, but they're all VERY tame so I'm thinking that sign gets ignored quite a bit.

There's more in the extended entry (as if you couldn't figure that out yourselves)

Midwest Girl

Phototime's theme this week is: Home Town

This may be kinda silly, but since I've been gone I keep seeing stuff that reminds me of home in the strangest places. Even the bathroom at the movie theatre. I know, I'm weird.

Photo Friday

I'm a day late, but here's my Photo Friday for yesterday. The theme is: Discovery

I discovered today when I checked my mail that less than a year after declaring bankruptcy, the exact same companies will start sending you credit card offers again.

Guess

Yeah, I know. It's ice. But do you know where the ice is?
Here's another shot of it.

Replacement Needed

CuttingBoard.jpg

I came home yesterday and discovered my cutting board had split down the middle. No idea how. It's very strange.

It's Not Easy Being Green

This is a building in Providence, at Brown I think. It's from when Mom visited back in February and we were walking around near the Brown campus when I took it.

Discarded

A little Photo Friday action, a day late. This week's challenge is: Junk

I had no idea what was in this dumpster when I took this. Your average dumpster is waaay too tall for me to see over the edge. But I could hold my camera up over the top of it and click!

Beep Beep!

Our friend the Chinese Goose stopped some traffic today.

Takeoff

I had a hard time finding an appropriate picture for this one, (which is why I'm posting on Wednesday instead of Tuesday!) I finally went with a couple shots I already had in my "arsenal."

The Phototime theme this week is: Cargo

Cargo1.jpg

Inspecting the cargo before takeoff and...

Unloading the cargo!

That's a Front Door!


LighthouseHouse.jpg

I saw this house while out geocaching yesterday and I just had to take a picture to show to a certain someone I know that has a thing for lighthouses.

Watercolor Sky


SailboatSunset.jpg

Absolutely beautiful sunset last night at the last cache I hunted. I didn't find it, but that's ok. All part of the game!
