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.

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.

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!

Photo #1000

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.

Fun with water and long exposures at night.

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!!!!

Happy Sign

This is possibly the best road sign in the world.

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.

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.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things...


I can spend hours in libraries without any problem. I LOVE books!

Keva's Drink

At least Syn said it tasted good! I don't drink alcoholic anything so I'll just have to trust her. It sure looked good though.

More 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.

Such a Good Feeling

Gas Gauge

I posted about how much I like this feeling before.

Every once in a great while my mom makes artichokes. She doesn't like them, and it's always fun when we get them. I went home for dinner special because she was making them for dad and myself.

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!

Icicle Stalagmite

I took this a week and a half ago or so. It's the antenna on my car covered with ice.

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

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:

Wireless is Cool


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.

Changing Places


Taking Huahh from his perch of two years at old job...


And welcoming him to his new home (and my new job!)

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.

November 4, 2003



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!

More Weirdness


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

Current State of Affairs


Boxes, boxes everywhere!


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!

Christmas in Rhode Island


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!


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!


Inside was an ornament and a really cool snowman!

Thank you Auntie Patty!

A Capitol Sight


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.

February 23, 2004



This guy is in front of a building in the historic part of Providence. I don't remember which one or what it was. But he's cool so I took his picture!

April 21, 2004

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.

Methinks that someone didn't want to finish their treat.

Fun With Textures

For Phototime this week the theme is: Simplicity

I had a hard time coming up with something creative today, so we've got fun with macros and textures!

Summer Time


You know it's getting warmer out when ice cream becomes the norm and the walk-up window is open at the local ice cream place. This was from Newport Creamery which has a restaurant all of 2 blocks from work. We've already been there twice in the past 5 days.

May 25, 2004

Wet and Wild

Checked today's Phototime before I went to work. This week is: Liquid

The sprinklers just happened to go haywire at work today creating a perfect chance for some meme-taking.

Ribbit, Welcome Home, Ribit


This guy was all set up to welcome me home when I walked into the "guest room" at home.

Black and White China

As usual I'm late with my Photo Friday-ing.

This week's challenge is: Black & White


And the original color version too.

July 30, 2004



I saw this car on the other side of the freeway while I was out and about yesterday. The smoke was visible from quite a ways back. Luckily it looked like everyone got out ok.

All Tied Up


A few of the many ropes all over the Mayflower II. It's a reproduction of the original Mayflower that's docked in Plymouth, MA. It even sails occasionally! It was amazing to see this not-very-big ship and know that more than 100 people, and their livestock, sailed across the Atlantic all jammed into it. Incredible.

Fun With Rain


Just experimenting with looking through the windshield while it's raining.

August 26, 2004

That's a Front Door!


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.

So Many Colors!

I'm late, but here's Tuesday's Phototime of: Back to School.

My favorite part of going back to school in the fall was always going and getting school supplies. I could (and still can!) spend hours in office supply type stores without any difficulty.

Not Good


I left it on the charger last night and it looked normal, this afternoon I grabbed it on my way out the door to work and it looked like this. I think something just might be wrong with it. Grrr!

September 16, 2004



For the Thursday Challenge: Emotion

My parents were visiting last week and on Saturday we went to see some of the sights in Plymouth. Didn't even think of what the date was. We were getting off the Mayflower II and heading for the car when a parade started to pass.

Up, Up, and Away


For wordPhoto: a plane waiting for it's turn at O'Hare. Took forever to get a straight on shot. I ended up with a lot of slightly off center shots before I got this one!

Way Back When


For Phototime... The beginnings of the colonization of America. Plymouth Rock.

A Crafty One


For wordPhoto, a little bit of glow from the vase a few pictures down.

Unfortunate Popcorn


A certain half-elf was talking about an author and his upcoming movie. And lo and behold when I went to a movie last night... there it was on my popcorn bag! And of course I just had to snap a picture!

The View From Behind


For i-gizmo: Wednesday on the way to dance I spent an entire hour behind these red lights. There was an accident about a mile before my exit so the trip that normally takes 45 minutes took at least an hour and a half. I was really sick of brake lights by the time I got there!

October 18, 2004

Leaping Lizards


My first foray into Macro Mania... I just can't resist an opportunity to take some macro shots! I've had this strange, or odd, or wonderful little thing for quite a few years. I think I got him on a family vacation to Door County in Wisconsin, but I don't really remember. Here he is in any event!

Merry Christmas!


Just some of my mom's Christmas decorations.

Out of Place


For Moody Monday: one building is quite a bit different than the other.

Hanging Out


A day late, but for Photo Tuesday... a Habit of mine is the keys on the hook next to the door. My keys have to go on the hook the second I enter the apartment. Otherwise... I lose them!

May 5, 2005



A little Lensday action a day late. Some old rusted metal that came out of the inside of the building at work. There's massive remodeling happening at work so there's been lots of fun and interesting picture stuff hanging around. These were some sort of metal grids, some sort of support thing maybe? I don't really know. They just looked cool.

May 23, 2005

Tiny Stitches


Trying out a new meme that's all about macros! And we all know I love me some macros. So for MacroDay I have some intricate cross-stitch. Just for some perspective, this particular project is on 18-count fabric which means there's 18 stitches per inch, or 324 stitches in a square inch.

August 10, 2005

Wat'cha Watchin?


For Pxite, a reflective collection of movies. And it works for this week's Thursday Challenge too! How about that. Not only are they reflective movies, they're good entertainment as well!

And because I thought it looked interesting... the same shot, but flipped.


February 10, 2006



I was behind this car on the way to work yesterday. Don't worry, we were at a very long light when I snapped this.

March 18, 2006



I love fog! It takes a lot of experimenting, but it looks really cool when it turns out right!

January 14, 2007

Just Because


I realize this doesn't make a lot of sense to anyone but me, but when confronted by the Chinese Soup Spoon, one just has to take it's picture!

Stick it To Me


I am completely blaming Wendy for this.

If you're really really curious, there's a bigger version of the file here (pops)

Left Behind

For Photo Friday a found object.

As I don't drink this was a rather odd object to find in my fridge! A certain someone left it in my fridge when she moved and now I haven't the faintest idea what to do with the thing!

March 23, 2008

I'm Melting......

It's another Macro Day shot. This one is for temperature.

March 27, 2008


For the Thursday Challenge: furniture.

Seems like a kind of strange place to keep one's sofa...

Take One and Call Me in the Morning

For Photo Friday: emotions

It amazes me that such tiny little things can affect something as complicated as how a person feels and reacts.


For Photo Hunt: high.

This is one of the bridges across the Charles River in Boston.

Around the World

For Macro Day: round
And it works for See It Sunday too 'cuz it's a map

This is one of those 3-D puzzles (a globe obviously) It was a fun puzzle to put together, but they make it waaaaaay too easy to cheat! Each piece has a number on the "wrong" side and starting at the South Pole with "1" it spirals all the way up and around until you have the whole puzzle. I did not use the numbers!

June 7, 2008


This showed up in my mailbox yesterday. It's an advance copy (otherwise known as an "ARC") for a book that won't be out until September. And it's signed! Squeeee!

I read the book before it a couple months back and wrote a little thing for it for the book blog. Last week I got a comment on the entry from the author who offered to send me the ARC for the next book! How cool is that?!?! And so completely unexpected!
