Look Who's Blogging Baby!

Hey everybody! Look who's blogging. If you are one of the two people who have regularly read this blog, you'll recall me mentioning my sister Emily a time or two (she's the one who just got married). Well I've been trying to get her to blog from the beginning, and now after years...ok, months...fine, weeks of "blog stalking" she has finally set up her own. You really should go check her out, she a very talented writer and extremely funny (and no, I'm not just saying that because she's my sister). ...and it doesn't hurt that she has excellent taste in photograpers.

Happy Blogging Em-cat!

Day 15 Graveyard

I think I'm going to have to change the name of this blog to "The Graveyard of Discarded Photos." Anyway, there were too many photos yesterday (again) that I liked to just choose one for the 365 Project. Eventually (obviously) I did, but I thought I'd give you a slide show of the ones I didn't choose. I think they're pretty great. I hope you do too!

I just couldn't decide

I am totally getting in to this 365 Project! It isn't easy, but it has been SO much fun. Today, I couldn't decide which photo to put up, so I've decided I'd post the pictures here that I didn't post there. Enjoy!

Faces that make me happy

There are certain faces in this world that make me smile. Actually there are several. Here are just a few:

I have a New Blog

I've decided that after several years of amateur photography, it's time I define my style. So I've decided that in order to do that I have to get my butt in gear and start shooting. Not that I haven't been shooting, as you can see from this blog, I've definitely got the "shutter bug." My problem is that I don't know what I want to do with it yet. Sometimes I think I would love to do weddings, but then I shoot a wedding and think, never again. Then I think I want to shoot kids, and well, you can imagine the rest.

So I've decided to post on my new blog, 365 days worth of photos and see where it takes me. I figured that I'd post the first day here, but for the rest of them? You'll have to check it out.
Wish me luck!

My Day Yesterday

I had a very odd day yesterday. It started out crap and ended up crap, but there was good stuff in between. How did my day start out crap you ask? A cold shower. Not a pretty thing. Yesterday was the opening concert of our season at work and it wasn't a good day for a cold shower. So I grabbed my clothes, my shampoo and conditioner, and all the necessary accoutrement's, called and left a message for my landlord, and headed for my parents to shower.

I got to work about 15 minutes late and the workday went just fine. In fact, at our first concert of the 2007-2008, Andre Watts Plays Beethoven with the Utah Symphony, we had the most people in an opening classical series concert since I've been employed with the Ogden Symphony Ballet Association (it's usually a pretty hard sell). Unfortunately, I was in the ticket office too long to hear Andre Watts play Beethoven's 5th Piano Concerto.

So I wandered up to the roof of the Browning Center and took some photos.

So, once intermission came I went back to work pouring lemonade for the society big wigs who were just dying to meet Mr. Watts. That's what I call being a good Marketing Manager don't you? The intermission ended and I finally got to go in to the concert. Most people know this about me, but some don't, I'm a nerd when it comes to Classical Music. I absolutely love it! And I'm telling you, last night I wasn't disappointed. The Utah Symphony played Holst's The Planets and it was absolutely stunning.


How did my day end crappy? Still no hot water.
