Dainty – 32/365

Dainty
Another day at the puppy store getting mine and the puppy’s hopes entirely to high. This little girl was as cute as could possibly be and just the right level of mellowness for me and my beau. We definitely could have taken her then and there had we had the appropriate funds.

Nasty – 31/365

Nasty
Jordan, here, is quite the metal head and is always up for the impromptu air drumming fest. This is generally the mandatory face for such an event and has forever changed the lives of everyone Jordan confronts. (Yes, I know this is snapshot quality…because it’s a snapshot)

Long Time No Post

Hey Everbody,
Sorry about the lag in posting. Total lame-o, I know. I’ve been sooo super busy at work and with my freelance stuff that I’ve barely managed to get a picture a day (aside from the 1,000 I take at work). So here’s the long post with my last six days worth of images. Peace!

Accomplishment
7.25.08 – 30/365 – “Accomplishment”

My 30th day of posting! A wonderful surprise awaited me today at work. I work at a portrait studio and have been busting my butt trying to learn as much as I can. Our walls are COVERED in huge, elaborate framed photos of the best work we’ve put out; stuff that really embodies our style and spirit. Today THREE triptych style frames of my very first client were placed around the studio! I’m feel really proud of myself and seeing them really gave me a big boost of self confidence. Definitely the perfect post for my 30th 365 photo!

Regret
7.24.08 – 29/365 – “Regret”

Lately my diet consisted of PB&Js, dill pickles, and 100 calorie packs. The last week however it’s been nothing short of awe inspiring. Pizza, nachos, salads, THE WORKS. Unfortunately it’s GOTTA stop because my waistline will increase, my wallet will decrease, and my tastebuds will eventually get used to good food and then it won’t be so special.

Torture
7.23.08 – 28/365 – “Torture”

For the last few years I’ve developed a very unhealthy habit of visiting my local mall’s puppy store on a weekly basis. My boyfriend and I will peruse the pups and occasionally hold one in the play area, dream big, and then get swift kick in the ass by reality. This little guy really broke our hearts and unfortunately we had to break his and put him back. I want a dog sooooo bad!! My dream pup is definitely one of these.

Neglect
7.22.08 – 27/365 – “Neglect”

So my boyfriend and I bought this grill Memorial Day weekend 2006. That was the first and last day it was ever used. It has since become a lovely piece of modern, rusted art on our tiny little porch. This is a still life of the vent on the top of the lid.

Shirts
7.21.08 – 26/365 – “Shirts”

After my job’s recall on the work wardrobe my closet has been overrun with crazy patterns and fabrics. It hits my a blinding light in the morning when I walk into my closet to pick something out.

Snooze Button Magoo
7.20.08 – 25/365 – “Snooze Button Magoo”

I wake up to this most mornings since I tend to start work earlier than my boyfriend. No joke, it’s this position every morning. Note the zoo of tiny stuffed animals on the window sill. These are all our "pets" which were won from crane machine games. We’d love to get a dog someday, but for now these will do (plus they are so affordable!). =)

A Long Time Coming – 24/365

Long Time Coming
After eagerly awaiting this release I finally got a chance to check it out in theaters tonight. Needless to say, it was everything I expected and more. I only wish a sequel including the Joker was a possibility. I feel it has definitely exceeded the mark the initial film set and would have certainly launched Ledger’s career had he not passed so suddenly. The score is, obviously, amazing due to combining two forces beyond compare (Zimmer and Howard) and was, of course, delightfully action packed. GO SEE IT.

I Am – 23/365

I Am
I’ve been working like crazy lately, not just my day job but with every other partial job/gig/volunteer stuff I get myself into. I’m pretty ragged and couldn’t think of anything else to take a picture of aside from the feeling that has been creeping up on me all day. I honestly take around 1000 photos a day at my job and when I work the longer hours it’s definitely hard to come home and immediately try to find more creative ways to take a picture (and unfortunately I cannot legally post any of my photos from work). I guess I’ll sit down at some point and map out some themes and try to stick to ’em. At least I’m getting lots of hours at work and keep myself needlessly busy in the mean time.

Color Me Trendy – 22/365

Dress Code
So my job called for a rehaul of the dress code policy. Out with the black-and-white and in with super trendy and color out the wazoo. Unfortunately I have zero dollars to put towards this transmogrification (yes, this is a word and yes, I am really excited to use it correctly). So, after combing the desert of my closet I found a few pieces that I’m hoping are able to be pulled together by this uber-trendy chunky, silver, waist-cinching belt care of Target. Another timer shot from the dresser (this is not a vanity shot, it’s a record of my supremely dorky efforts at being cool).

Elroys – 21/365

Elroys
Every Wednesday night I have rehearsal for a cover band I play in called "The Elroys". It’s new for me as of this summer and is quite an experience. We do mainly classic rock and blues and have a daschund named Buster as our mascot (he likes to sit in Casey’s bass drum during rehearsals). This is a shot during one our tunes using timer. That’s me on keyboard and vocals, Robert on bass, Robert S. on mandolin, Scott on guitar, and Casey on drums (they’re not all pictured here). I’ll miss singing in this group when I leave Jax.

Library – 20/365

Library
I went to my university’s library and checked out an impressively tall stack of books. I realized while roaming up and down the aisles of books that I was way more interested in reading and furthering my personal education now that I was done with school. The idea that I could read a whole biography on Marquis de Sade and NOT have to write a 20 page dissertation on the most minute details of his writing styles (in correlation with his personal life) ELATED me.

**Side note:
Uh-Giddyup Here’s another photo from my day. It involves Seinfeld, my mother’s house, and chess.

Steer – 19/365

Steer
I have a pretty relaxed commute to my job these days (compared to my old commute from NJ to NYC a few years ago). 15-20 each way is a welcome change. I know it’s definitely not safe to photog and drive, but the opportunity presented itself so I grabbed hold of the camera and went at it. Nothing spectacular, just a glimpse into my daily routine. I need to start making mini-themes and projects to keep these photos interesting or I’ll go crazy.

Donde esta?

So, it’s definitely been a rough week and I know I’ve been slackin’ on the uploads. BUT. I’m going to post up my weeks worth of photos with some short descriptions. THEN. I’m hoping to get a bit better (health-wise) and tad more motivated (artistically) to upload on a daily basis. I’m also hoping I can come up with some good ideas for the following weeks so I don’t have any more sicky photos (these lame ones I’m about the put up.

Fooood
7/7/08 – 12/365

Due to my sickness I haven’t eaten much and subsequently lost 5 pounds in the last few days. Hopefully my appetite will perk up soon. I think I was cooking a potato here. mmmm…

bottle
7/08/08 – 13/365

So after this past week of nasty sickness running rampant in my body, I decided there MUST be something wrong with my diet. Since I can’t afford to go all out and buy lots of wholesome good-for-me foods I’ve decided to opt for a 1-a-day-pop-a-pill solution: the multivitamin (off-brand of course)! So, there’s the nutrients I’ll be receiving on a daily basis from now on no matter what. Now I just have to remember to take it.

Carpette
7/9/08 – 14/365

Possibly the most boring picture yet. This is my carpet. I was lying on the carpet sick as a dog and thought I’d give my photo for the day a shot from a different perspective.

Pink Attack
7/10/08 – 15/365

This is one of two digital art assignments I’ve been working on for a client. Too cute.

Storm
7/11/08 – 16/365

Not much to say about this. This huge storm was looming and it sure was a doozy. I know it’s not an amazing picture. Just something to post.

Lay Off My Cake
7/12/08 – 17/365

This is the second of two digital art assignments I’ve been working on for a client of mine.

Pray
7/13/08 – 18/365

I sing part time at a big church every Sunday afternoon. Today was a my first day back since my hiatus last week due to the plague. Here’s a shot of my director playing the piano in the gorgeous chapel.
