Day One Hundred Seventeen

Day One Hundred Seventeen - "Tizzer"

My Grandmother goes by many names other than the legal Elizabeth: Gommie, Tizzer, Grandma, just to name a few.

Here she is knitting. Supposedly it will be a vest.. but it must take some serious knitting to get there.

Day One Hundred Sixteen

Day One Hundred Sixteen - "Transfixed"

I think I'll let this image speak for itself..

Day One Hundred Fifteen

Day One Hundred Fifteen - "Slacker"

Yes you do walk on it, but it's not a tightrope, it's a slackline. Simply webbing stretched in between two trees (or something similar) The pros do this over canyons hundreds of feet in the air.. I am only at a meter or two. But hey, maybe someday.. when the 'rents aren't around;)

Day One Hundred Fourteen

Day One Hundred Fourteen - "Ms. Unhappy Camper"

Woke up, went to church, came home and, for the nineteenth year, hunted for my easter basket! Yes, it appears I haven't quite outgrown the tradition, though someone in my family has.. Katy had the whole day to find her basket of goodies and.. well... it never happened.

So I set up my stuff where I knew hers was, and after a little coaxing, yelling, swearing, hitting, complaining.. she finally found it!

Day One Hundred Thirteen

Day One Hundred Thirteen - "Mr. Up and Coming and Ms. Giggles"

I thought this shot up around ten thirty and shot it a few hours later, thinking it would be simple enough to execute.. boy was I mistaken! These two knew how to relax and be themselves in front of the camera.. which made for great expressions, as we were laughing just about the whole time.

Be sure to click the image to view it large!

Day One Hundred Twelve

Tayo is the leader of the band After Three (Afterthr3) and yes, the band has withstood the test of time. We are going into a recording studio this weekend to record some of our music!

Check us out!

Day One Hundred Eleven

Day One Hundred Eleven - "Oh-My-Lanta Jones and the Shaking Bridge of Doom"

The APU Northernlights footbridge has a habit of wobbling whenever a group of people walk over it. This one was not particularly fond of it, but she conquered her fears all for day one hundred eleven, all while laughing at a friends misfortune.

Day One Hundred Ten

Day One Hundred Ten - "The Ice is Out"

The water is cold. And she's going in.

Well not really, but if the water was fifty degrees warmer she probably would.

Day One Hundred Nine

Day One Hundred Nine - "Clarks"

Mmm Mmm Mmm that sweet strawberry-sorbet evening light.. gotta love it up.

(shot at Westchester Lagoon, thanks to a man named Carl who was human light stand for the night)

Day One Hundred Eight

Day One Hundred Eight - "Night Frolf"

Frisbee anyone?

Day One Hundred Seven

Day One Hundred Seven - "Fattie Ollie"

Meet Monte. He can skate. Like a beast. Did I mention he can skate?

Meet Mikey. He can skate too. Also pose. Did I mention he can pose?

Come on, whats better than collaborating with people who are masters in their own right? Thats just it, awesome things spew forth because it doesn't require thought.. it just comes naturally. And that is a beautiful thing.

Day One Hundred Six

Day One Hundred Six - "Vintage Central"

VW Buses, Wayfarers, Aviators, Gingham, Kodachrome, Today Sponges, Polaroid Instant film.. the list goes on and on.

But add to that list Central Middle School. Gone are the days of awkward health class, and being released at two fourty five.

On to days of.. College?  

Day One Hundred Five

Day One Hundred Five - "The Customer is Always Right"

Or are they?

When I conjure up images in my head, they often consist of specific people. When I am backed into a creative corner there are the select few (family) who's role becomes the subject, so naturally the certian few have multipul shots.. but what if someone requests a photograph?

The difference between personal and commercial work sound obvious, but the line is misleading; and blurs easily.

But if the end result benefits both the shooter and target.. where is the problem?

Day One Hundred Four

Day One Hundred Four - "Fashion Faux Pas"

Flannel Friday on Thursday.. yes it is egregious.

I could have said something about the lot we were on and how it used to be a beautiful forest.. I should have. This look says it all. Not quite Ferngully but..

Day One Hundred Three

Day One Hundred Three - "On the Run"

This shot was taken at East High School, and being outside of class this hour, the security guards were on beautiful Ms. Jahnna's tail.

Its a good thing the security guards are camera shy, or else this shot wouldn't have been possible!

Day One Hundred Two

Day One Hundred Two - "Spoke Too Soon"

Beautiful, mid-fifties, clear skies; great day right? Naturally. But just as naturally, it was windy. This shot is decieving in that I couldn't feel many fingers or toes. Worth it? You tell me.

Day One Hundred One

Day One Hundred One - "Winter Rebel"

The brandspankin' new Denina Convention Center decided to up grade their bleachers, and toss the old ones. I always get a few strange looks from passers by, but I wonder what the people behind the security cameras make of the situations.

Apparently not enough to cause alarm, because the shoot went off without a hitch! Now just 264 more days to go..

Day One Hundred

Day One Hundred - "Kick Snat Hare"

Wait, Kick Snare Hat. Yeah drummers aren't aways great a forming correct words.. but you get the idea. We also like to practice.. a lot.. sometimes in unusual places.

Don't worry, no cars were harmed in the making of this photograph. Also no police were involved. But there may have been two friend-of-a-friend's-friend's (slightly intoxicated) acting as human light stands, and one or two disgruntled Covenant House employee's, along with a few impressed tenant's;)

And then there was the snow/hail stuff.. that just made everything better! And yes, there was a small snowball fight afterwords.

But hey, all that goes into making an epic DAY ONE HUNDRED!

Day Ninety Nine

Day Ninety Nine - "You've Been Served"

Nope. Not court papers, if you haven't gotten it yet.. well..

And for all those out there who think I have no class and asked a woman to prom on the Internet; there was an actual print made and delivered to Ms. McKinley.

Yes, that is how art should be shared, not over screens, but in a medium that you can touch. Something tangible.

Day Ninety Eight

Day Ninety Eight - "The TRUE Athletes"

Beautiful day, snow melting, balmy fifty degrees, no wind. So what do you do?

Of course.. go to the gym!

Wait.. something doesn't seem right.. hmm.

Day Ninety Seven

Day Ninety Seven - "Ensconced"

Day Ninety Six

Day Ninety Six - "The Little City"

With fancy streetlights. 

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Day Ninety Five

Day Ninety Five - "Down with the Down"

You know you're an Alaskan when.. you never leave the house without something feather-based.

It's an unspoken a requirement of the 'true Alaskan' wardrobe.

Of course the good ones have that 'lived in' feel/musk/asthetic because they're.. well... literally lived in.

Day Ninety Four

Day Ninety Four - "Wet Wellies"

Now that is a great word, but not one that comes to mind when I think of "Rainboots"
but when you're face to face with Nessie, I'd either want a pair of wellies, a kilt, or a Franz Ferdinand to scare 'er off.

Day Ninety Three

Day Ninety Three - "Stop.. or Go"

Shooting in the median of Northern Lights is interesting.. lots of garbage, honking, funny looks, questions, and cops. But it wouldn't be a good shot without all of that.

Sunday, April 3, 2011

Day Ninety Two

Day Ninety Two - "Streetlights"

Yes, that title does have a double meaning. Many meanings actually, but literal streetlights, as in the things that made this photo so scrumptiously golden.

This was shot with a lens baby wide open at F/ 2.0 (not actually sure) which makes for some interesting flares and.. well whatever all that stuff is.

Day Ninety One

Day Ninety One - "Veggin' Out"

Friday: gettin' out of work (rockin' out), workin' out, eatin' out, and finally.. veggin' out.

Mmm mmm mmm
