It's raining, let's go bowling! (Jan 29th, 2006)
Not just any kind of bowling, glow bowling!

Last night some friends and I slammed back a few brewski each and hit the lanes at a local alley that just started offering glow bowling on weekend evenings. It's a riot and worthy of many exposures.

Today is stormy. Not quite stormy enough to keep me exclusively indoors, but almost. I like it when the outdoors gets so animated actually. The rhythm of the rain on my skylight is a good meditation soundtrack.

Pixel Art Studios is Born!! (Jan 27th, 2006)
All in a flash the name came to me. I thought it was an existing major corporation but low and behold, a .NET remains. So soon, my friends, a new website will be unleashed upon the world. One with a portfolio of studio shots like you've never seen before. One with a complex, dynamic still life gallery the likes of which the universe has never known. With my Alien Bees by my side I shall rule the interweb like no force yet existing. Mwahahahah!

Star Candy (Jan 16th, 2006)
Been thinking for days about what might be a good idea for a name for my new photography studio business I'd like to start. I'm thinking it should be "_____ Studios" but haven't been able to satisfactorily fill-in the blank. Might be purchasing some strobes from White Lightning. I really like what they have to offer.

Sunset Interval (Jan 15th, 2006)
It's getting longer. You know what I'm talking about. That period of lightness, it's increasing in length again. I think maybe April and May are my favorite months, and they're coming up in no time. I can't wait to go mountain biking after work on Wednesdays again. I can't wait to get more plants in my greenhouse. I can't wait to crawl in the mud to capture images of new plants pushing through the moist earth.

Young Mad Genius (Jan 13th, 2006)
By the time young Liam grows up he will probably have been the subject of thousands of great photos. It started only moments after his first breath (as is documented here) and will probably continue until he's quick enough to dodge the all pervasive SLRs that have flanked him so far in his infancy.

Really, I wouldn't be surprised if the first word he learned to say was NIKON.

A creek runs through it (Jan 8th, 2006)
Had a great balance of outdoors and indoors this weekend. Got out to the west coast surfing yesterday and then out for a walk around Bowen Park today. All three evenings this weekend I've holed myself up in my office and did work that's been long overdue. Produced a really cool calendar, started a website upgrade project and did some tweaks to this site to increase it's search engine visibility.

Please excuse the blurry bridge, it was handheld at 1 sec.

Oh Mighty CRT (Jan 6th, 2006)
I'd like to take this moment to bow down to the technology that initially brought the world into our living rooms. It's changed the world in ways which are neither good nor evil. It's the first tool of it's kind. I'd like to pray before it tonight because it's a dying deity, one destined for the scrap heap of the year 2053.

Let us commemorate this divine equipment by constructing sculptures with it's innards. Massive monolithic monstrosities.
