One Year Aniversary

I just realized that the one year anniversary of this blog is in 2 days. I thought I'd missed it. I thought it was later in the year when I started this blog. I think it celebration of 1 year I'll give away a print, just for fun. If you're interested in being the winner reply to this post, and you can pick any shot posted on the blog, and I'll print you up a copy.

Let's make the deadline for posting 1 week from today, so.... that'll be the 4th at midnight. (Don't worry, I'll still put your name in the drawing if you post before I get around to doing the actual drawing.)

I'm just going to put everyone's name into a hat, and pick one at random. Good luck.

Day 1

I'm offically calling yesterday Day 1. I went out to the woods with Mary, and took a ton of pictures. these 2 are a couple of the more fun ones. i really think I found a groove there at the end. Both of these shots are strait from the camera. I havn't touched a thing.

I've been thinking about this project for the last few weeks... hell, at this point, Months. Anyway, I keep getting drawn toward wanting to do something on nature, flowers or something like that. My recently aquired girlfriend is fairly active in trying to preserve a lot of the green space around cincinnati. I'm thinking this might be a good use for this project. I can help her out, by putting together a book that will help her show how great these spaces are. (I might also get her to let me use her camera a little bit. lol. I'm not w/o ulterior motives. )

Anyway, tonight I'm going to be walking some of this property with her. we'll both have our cameras with us. I'm thinking I might see if she wants to join in on the project... dual authorship is allowed, right?

Her friend Heather might be helpful in providing a bit of text as well. I wonder what kind of history I can dig up on this location?

Ok, I'm starting to delve into internal dialogs. Time to get some work done.

D70 lives on, and dies again.

2 days ago I picked up my camera from the shop. Woo Hoo!! and, Yesterday I took it back. It took about 90 pictures before it died again. I'll have to take a new approach to the SoFoBoMo project...

Anyway, I think I'm going to use my nikon coolpix l4 for this book project. Now I just need to find a topic, and we're good to go. My mo. is already started very late, but it's still a loose mo. hopefully I'll start updating this daily.

a little photoshop fun

I was just playing around with some of the other stuff from last night. Photoshop can be so much fun, and such a waste of time.

Spring Has Arived

Nothing says spring quite like palm trees, right? Well, maybe not, but I did manage to get this fun shot thanks to the wonderful Mary. She's allowing me to use her camera from time to time while mine is in the shop. (oh, I hadn't posted that on here yet.) ya. My camera, the one that just came back from the shop in January is once again in the shop. Luckily it broke just short of the end of the 90 day waranty on the repairs.

I'm thinking that perhaps my vertical grip is causing the problem, so if anyone has a battery door for a D70, I'm in the market. I need one in order to quite using the vertical grip.
