Lonely Whiskey

Just a lonely cold night in Athens.  All the roommates are gone and its finally quiet.  Its been a pretty rough past few months for me.  I've lost my uncle, and my grandmother in the same week back at the end of November, and I have just lost an aunt (whom I regret I never got the chance to meet) and now another grandmother is in the hospital with some pretty serious stipulations.  In all of this loss, I can't help but be reminded of the first loss I had: my father.  I was never big on whiskey as a kid (bad Ben, I know), but with it being cold out and all these thought running through my head; and since it was my dad's favorite drink, I felt I should give it a try.  Surprisingly, its not too bad.  I thought about putting it on ice or putting the bottle in the freezer to chill it, but he never did so I figured I shouldn't either.  
It has been a while since I have posted, and if anyone ever actually sees this, or used to watch for new posts, I apologize. I am still stuck with the old Rebel Xi, but have just installed CS5 on my laptop, so I think I might be able to get back into the posting mood here soon.

Yeah; I'd give almost anything to be right here, right now. Just got approved for my first credit card. Maybe I'll be there sooner than I thought.

Nah, not worth living in debt over... Or is it?

Well its been far too long since I have been to the beach, so i decided if I looked at pictures of the times I have went, it might ease the pain. FAIL
I need to get some money together, and find the time to get back soon. The beach is one of most photogenic places on Earth. Maybe that's why I am drawn to it so much?

More Spring from last year

I found a few more while searching for a new background for my computer.
I chose this one.

I also liked this one,
but I didn't feel it fit for a background image.

Spring needs to get here fast

While looking through my pictures from last Spring, I found one I liked.
I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can get back outside and take some more pictures.

Merry Christmas!

I know it has been a long time since I have updated my blog and I am sorry I have been very busy lately. With the changes in living on my own, attending the main campus of Ohio University, and now work over winter break; I have not had the time I would like to be out taking pictures. I would like to say that I will have more free time soon, but doubt it. I will take advantage of the opportunities I am presented with more efficiently this quarter.
In the mean time, I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!!
Have a wonderful Christmas, and a safe New Years!

Kayla & Teagan

Normally I don't photograph people because they are pains and they move. In my black and white photography class at OU-C, we were givin a portrait assignment. I need to tweek the contrast with some filters in the darkroom tomorrow, but its a good start.

I like using babies, because you basically tell the parents where you want them to be, and then tell the parents to make the kid happy. It is just your job to capture the times you think should be remembered.
