Resolution

The last few weeks have been so busy I kinda missed a few days on my photography project. So here's a summary, and a New Year's resolution to do better in the days to come. This is Kiara, Jack and Lucius. I went walking at Lake Fayetteville with some friends, one of whom kindly lent me a dog to walk, since Oin's getting old and has legs too short to enjoy a 5.5 mile trail. (Also, credit where credit is due - I didn't take this picture.) Classic randomness. This is actually inside a Jimmy John's - I imagine the bike must belong to employee. It looked so perfect leaned against the brick wall. I love the moon. I love that it's a big round boring rock, that somehow manages to affect water and things on Earth, and that it reflects light. So it was totally worth it to me to stay up til 3am to watch a winter solstice eclipse. Slightly blurred, but it's hard to take a focused photo when you're laughing. This is me and mini-me, my cousin Lauren. She was …

Light and Music

Two things I'm very fond of. :) Sidewalk art in front of Sound Warehouse. I love sidewalk art - you can do really cool things with chalk, but it's so transient. Singing Christmas carols together at UBC's Tacky Christmas Sweater party. It's so nice to be somewhere that everyone isn't trying to undersing the person nearest them - and somewhere that nice chatty people are. :) A flickering fire is a fabulous thing when you get in from walking a dog from an outdoors with a negative-something windchill. Whizzing past a home well-decorated for Christmas. I need to try to get a picture of the blazing show my grandpa puts out... I'd have to go across the street to get all of it, though. :) A perfect cold weather activity (I think) is baking cookies. Bales of hay on a windswept hill. It looks all Charlotte-Bronte because I managed an angle that didn't show the surrounding power lines. FPL had the Ozark Handbell Ensemble do a concert on Sunday afternoon.…

Near and Far

My week was the usual mish-mash. :) A (slightly) blurry shot of Old Main at night. I love how understated the lights are, with them just outlining the building. It adds to it, I think. Little clay doves, topping a pair of knitting needles at Hand Held. I've messed with clay, but the thought of doing something that small with it is somewhat incomprehensible to me. Driving to UBC of a sunset evening I spotted this church steeple and veered off into a parking lot to take a picture. I thoroughly confused the guys working in the pizza place I stopped in front of. Shiny pretty! (I am such a magpie, and I have ADOS: Attention Deficit Ooh, Shiny!) Ennyhoo, they're made from twisted wire. Simple, yet fabulous. I spent Friday and Saturday on Mount Magazine at the Arkansas Knitting and Spinning Extravaganza. I was supposed to be a vendor but my merchandise got lost in the mail so I ended up helping a friend at her booth. Crow and Juliann had a booth for their hand spun, and k…
