well pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs!

glory shots

yup, we live here. many a city-ite make a pilgrimage up here to The Shire each fall to see 'the colors'-- and we get to enjoy it for free! Took the pups on a nice afternoon hike on recently discovered (as in, I found it today!) Nature Conservancy land in Stockbridge-- it was gorgeous, if a little odd because you could hear the highway. It was really warm and sunny and they loved splashing in a little brook/waterfall. I was a little worried to be out there alone with them because the trail wasn't marked and pretty much covered with leaves, but we made it home safe and sound, and my reward is two tuckered out pups. (we are taking care of my mom's puppy for the week while she's away-- he's a terror but super cute so we have to love him!)
[and yes, i was driving while i took those above. it's one of my hobbies, steering while photographing. the one below is from our back yard]

history of photography

Been working hard hard hard on school work-- just finished a group project on the History of Phtography... click here to see it! I did the Historical Examples slideshow (collected the images, but no, i don't know how to make a flash slideshow, i'm not that cool...yet!) and edited all the text and helped design the layout/flow of the site.

was fun to learn how to collaborate long-distance with 4 other people flung around the country-- a great learning experience for sure. i think it came out pretty nice.

Indulge me

I just can't help it. I'm so enamored. sorry if this is getting old, but it's my life. well, it's the part of my life I can't help but love-- muddy dog paws and smiling puppies. they're my FAVORITE.

here's a few of the (VERY) random things keeping me busy lately. they're some of what I've done so far for that MFA in graphic design program I'm doing online. they all have specific assignments behind them but I'm not going to get into that. not quite what i might have created without the assignments, but successful execution of those there assignments, nonetheless. :>

yup. that's me. i'm an ALIEN, ok? didn't you know?
