...it was strange to have that much paint covering my head. My eyelids felt very heavy and my skin felt old and scaly.


The pictures, however, do look a bit more than awesome. Good work by Morri on those. Very, very impressive and creative.

awesome photos.



I love all these pictures with painted models. I saw living art at a gallery once and it was one of the most impressionable and fascinating things I've ever seen.

Can I reiterate right now how much I hate Windows Vista?


FEH. I should charge double for any system that comes in with Vista on it.

...spending the morning getting through some basic photo edits for the photography site. I have a ton of pictures from my travels I've never really gone through and touched-up since learning a LOT more about how and what to do from Morri.


Right now I'm working on Alaska, Spring 2008, just because mountains and snow are fun.


I also managed to make a horn out of expandable foam, which turned out pretty good. I have to make another - and I'm going to make a head dress out of them for a photoshoot. First attempt - we'll see how it works out.


I'll link the gallery here once I have the edited pictures done and up...

...no cleverly crafted innuendo intended. However, I must say Morri would have undoubtedly run out in the snow barefoot as well - and did, after she went and put pants on.


I didn't know if she wanted me to mention the part that she was getting ready for our networking meeting and had let the dogs out while in process, and was not wearing pants...


...it is NOT "THAT" kind of office here.


Ok, it is. But only on Thursdays, really.

One of the puppies managed to squeeze out of the pen that contains the dogs just now. That isn't a good thing - we live on a busy county highway and although the pen is in the back, the front yard isn't very deep to get to the road so very quickly there could be a lot of trouble...


Morri hollered to me for help and I raced down from our office to her... but all my shoes are by the office entrance... so I pulled off my socks and ran out into the knee deep, icy snow to go grab the puppy (Bria).


Wooo... gotta tell you. At first, it's refreshing. But after about 60 seconds, the feet went completely numb.


But it's good experience, since I want to do a shoot with Morri where I will be the subject and will get a wee-bit undressed in the snow...


...what doesn't kill us... right?

The bathroom smells better this morning. I think it was the throw rugs that got wet from the leaky roof making the funky "just pooped in" smell. Going to have to soak them...

....and in this case, I'm referring to my blessed coffee. Have I mentioned how much I love this coffee?


We started getting our coffee from a local coffee roaster - they fresh roast and package their beans right on site. Per cup, we're paying less than we would for packaged, gourmet coffee from a store. Yes, more than mass marketed stuff like the cheap brand names, but much less than we would for something like Starbucks packaged, or some of the other gourmet brands.


And this stuff is fantastic.


Unfortunately, this morning, there isn't enough of it.... or at least, I can't possibly consume enough of it...

We got in around 6AM and got to bed about 6:30. And, I was awake at 10.

And the traffic in Chicago we were stuck in for 2 hours.... gawd, people simply don't know how to drive.


Anyway... spent the night near Madison. Will resume and complete the drive this morning.

...score one for the big, dumb primate - but the rodent is back in his cage.


My apologies for anyone who looked for my kitchen-cam and didn't find it - a conversation began when I started cooking that I both needed to be attentive to and did not want broadcast publicly. Yes folks, real life will always.... ALWAYS win out.


BTW, you didn't miss much. I almost burned the home-made refried beans and over all I was very disorganized tonight. It's best no one saw it.


I have an entertainment PC set up on the conference room / living area display. It is also where Morri and I keep most of our music. When it is on, the screen saver scrolls through hundreds of my favorite pictures that I have taken. Oh, and there is probably more I can put on there but our of sheer laziness, I haven't.


However, I do enjoy just sitting and watching it. Remembering where I was... the feelings I was experiencing as I took the shot. I think that is one of my favorite things about photography... it isn't a distraction from life; it is simply part of it. And as I feel, experience and learn, the photography becomes not just art... not just a picture. It becomes a part of me. The emotions of the moment... like two horses standing in the rain, or the sun glowing on a golden beach, or a single, perfect yellow rose, or my children playing... my photos help me remember the moments and the feelings.


I hope I never lose that...
