At my dad's



Greenhouse Bed







Back at the beginning of the summer when I went and spent a day at my dad's I took a roll of film worth of pictures. I'm kind of in love with these and the way my step-mom has decorated her yard and my dad's dog.

Looking Down

Winter Waits






Knobby Knees

White Washed

I just picked up three rolls of film. None of which were the one that I have wanted to see developed since I shot it in February (I later realized it had been hiding so I never dropped it off). There was a common theme in the three rolls though of me taking pictures of my shoes and legs and quite a few coffee and food pictures too.  If you want to see more of the film go to my flickr, I'll be posting more of it in the next few days.

The First

The First

Lately I've been seeing acorns, or at least what look to me like acorns (I'm fairly sure that's what they are but seeing as I don't have much experience I can't be entirely sure). I've never actually seen a real acorn, just drawings and pictures of them. I have to admit that to me they're a bit fairytale-ish, something magical exists in them. So today when I was walking to the bus stop on my way home from work I picked one up. The first acorn I've ever held. I still feel like it's quite a magical little thing. Also I have M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" stuck in my head... that's entirely unrelated, I know, it's just so catchy... 


I forgot that I had pictures from the beginning of the month sitting in my digital camera until I went and took some pictures today. 

On the River



These are from the day after 4th of July (July 5th?), I woke up before everyone else and took this little guy for a walk along the Lewis River (I was staying at my dad's up in Washington).

He looks like a puppy but he's nearly two! He just got all his hair cut off for the summer.

I also found this on there, at the beginning of the month I ate cinnamon pancakes every day for about a week, one day I even put strawberries in them, they were delicious.

Feathers and Moonlight


I wish my mind would quiet down.

I can't believe how little this summer feels like summer. Last summer was just too good to me. I'm going to drop off some more film to get developed tomorrow I think, that is if I get to it... I feel like I have a never-ending amount of things to do right now and too many things pulling on my mind at once. So, I will leave you with this picture that someone (I really can't remember who) showed me recently. If you ever had anything to do with Babar you will (hopefully, if not I might feel a bit crazy) agree with me that it is awesome.

Sent to my brother

As I briefly mentioned a while ago, my brother and I send pictures back and forth to each other, trying to outdo each other. Well, to be honest, I send more than he does. But I thought that I would share some of the more interesting things I've seen and shared with him lately.

Yeah, this actually happened in the store... I couldn't believe it.

When my brother was living with my dad and I was in Portland last year my mom made a ham that she and my step-dad had gotten as a gift... they ate ham everything for just about a month... (so I actually sent this to her, but I still love the pic)

It's hard to tell but the crane is actually moving port-a-potties... oh yeah.

A strawberry shaped like a tooth!

I was bored in class this morning... I realized later I should have written 'oh deer' instead.

Yes, I sent my brother a picture of my foot. Because my chaco tan is beginning to show and it's gonna be AWESOME by the end of the summer.


Sometimes this is just too much.

I have this idea that someday I'll just pack what I need to live and go where ever I end up for a few months. Preferably in Europe. Maybe after I'm done with school... we'll see. I still don't know what I'm going to do after this year of school. I feel like my mind travels more than I ever will in my entire life.

Black and White


This is a really old picture... I bought some black and white film today, I've actually never shot black and white film, so I thought I should try it before I start my black and white photography class next month. I am itching to get out and use it, but I've been to busy to take many photos lately.

I forgot to mention; lately my dreams have been very strange and I've remembered them (the first part of that is pretty normal but the second isn't). Last night for example, I dreamt that I got lost while on a walk (the part before this was just strange and hard to explain so I'm just going to describe the disgusting part for your reading pleasure) and then in order to get back to where I started I had to crawl through a large pile of animal skins and fat, at the time (in my dream) I made a comment about how this was definitely enough to make me become a vegetarian again. When I woke up this morning I was seriously considering it... I have since changed my mind but decided that if that ever did happen I would most likely stop eating meat. 


I really dislike when I have my weekend all planned out and then everything goes wrong. This weekend for example was going to be spent catching up and getting ahead on some school reading and finishing up a presentation I have tomorrow (or today technically since it's past midnight). Unfortunately both my jobs decided they needed me both days so almost nothing got done (except me printing of a bazillion articles to do research for my presentation and earning money which isn't entirely bad). Now I'm trying to muster the energy to finish getting my presentation together... needless to say it could be going better... I was so excited that I wasn't planning on procrastinating too (or at least not procrastinating as much). I really need to catch up on that reading so I don't feel so behind all the time. I'm really just typing whatever comes into my head, my apologies to anyone that's made it this far. 

A few minutes ago I decided that the following sentence describes how I feel about my life right now perfectly: 

I'm really tired of having so many regrets and not being able to take the chance and fix them.

I'm not really sure that even makes sense to anyone but me, but it makes sense to me so everyone else can just ignore it. As a reward for making it so far, here is a picture from my recent film batch...

I have been so busy the past week. I drove all over the place for 4th of July weekend, I'm working two jobs and going to school full time. But it's good, it keeps me organized. Although I didn't realize it was so late until just now... I should go to sleep. I think this weekend I might actually do something fun!
