Colusa County
Merry christmas. I spent it with Sierra's family in Arbuckle. lots of wide open spaces. it was nice.
this is how far I can run before my camera timer goes off.
I haven't shot color film since summer.

Black Crow
I finally got my tattoo
it was not a pleasant journey getting it
but luckily what will stay is the tattoo, and not the memory of how it got there

Roger Rabbit
I went to see "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" with Laura at the theater. it's one of our favorite movies. we were the only ones there, so we could be as loud as we wanted (which is pretty loud), and I got to test out my new release cable.

If It's All The Same To You
I don't like cal. I don't like standford. I don't like that I can't wear red or blue on certain weekends without being yelled at. one of us is wearing blue, and the other red. it doesn't matter which, we just like these outfits.
This is Jason. He's here to help prove a point. Jeffrey took this. I developed and printed it.

This Is Where I Live
I am so happy about this graffiti right outside my window. it's like a sign to me that everything will be alright, and that I don't have to worry so much.
Clementines are in season. They're my favorite.
Stuart sent me some holga photos. He's coming to visit Saturday. I can't wait.
It's starting to get cold out.

This is the first portrait in a long while that I worked so hard on. Most of them I've been throwing something together from a snapshot on iPhoto. It's hard not having Photoshop for myself. this week though I decided to really come up with a set up and work on it, on time. I've been editing it in Lab B on photoshop, and I'm so fucking excited about it. I didn't even realize how much I missed photoshop, or that missing something like photoshop this much was possible. I've really just missed digital photography in general, since I've mostly been doing just film. I like that too, but it's been too time consuming to do both. It's such a relief to have done this portrait in my own style though, and not just the iPhoto editor, which you can't be creative with at all.

A Twig
this is my band's first gig. it was on the CCA campus opening the show Kill Me, presented by Red is Blue Lit Mag. we're called Twigs and Branches, and we're a country western band.

love fest was amazing. I haven't worn makeup in months.

I'm cheating this week. this is an old photograph of me I scanned and turned into a polaroid. that's my teddy bear, Panada. I just brought him back from my house to college with me because I realized I had to ball up my sheets and hold them on my side to sleep in the right position without him.
his name is Panada because when I was a little kid I couldn't say PiƱata. why is was then applied to my teddy bear, I don't know, he's just always been that, just like the ribbon on his nose has always been there, I don't remember moving it there.

I will have adventures, I'll be scarred and bold
taken at the Bulb with Dean and Clinton. the musical instrument was cut down. I really I don't ever have to miss this place.

packing for a new life
it's so relieving to be packing, I can leave behind everything I don't need, everything that would weigh me down.

Tuesday, August 12, 2008


the bulb is one of my favorite places in the world, and it's being destroyed. I'm trying to save it, or at least preserve it. I went with Allyson to photograph it last week, the photos are on my flickr. she took this one of me. I'll be going back often, every time I go I find something new to document. you should come sometime, I'll show you around.

beware of dog
my grandma used to have a dog. she'd still loved to have one, but she's much too old to take care of one. she'll be 88 in a month.

they say it's your birthday
today was my eighteenth birthday. this is my lip piercing which I got at Belmont in Chicago, and my first legal cigarette which I smoked in millennium park until the segway police told us not to smoke on the grass. I was done anyway.

Muffin is my sister's snake. she took this. I'll be putting other versions on my flickr and deviantArt. my hair is getting long.

two little feet to carry me away into the woods
I went camping at the Eel river in the redwoods. it's gorgeous up there. I really like this one, especially all the different textures, you should definitely click it to see it larger. I also have another one I like here. I'll try to do something with more than just my legs next week. the title is from a Greg Brown song, it was very appropriate for the trip.

blend in
chameleon, in plain sight, sometimes it's just nice to fit in. or hide.

snorkeling in Haunama bay is like swimming in a fish bowl. the water is crystal clear and there are all kinds of colorful fish. Natalie took this one of me spinning around in the warm water with Baboon peak in the background.

I'm in Hawaii with Celia and Natalie and it's amazing. we've graduated and can't be in a better place to celebrate. this is also my first self portrait with my new Nikon D200. it's amazing, I can't believe I have such a great camera. I can't wait to experiment with it more.

"I wonder if I shall fall right through the earth..."
"how funny it'll seem to come out among the people who walk with their head's downwards!" -Lewis Carroll

I've had this idea for a while, so I thought I'd get it out of the way and make room for more new ones. I took a few jumping and it turned into something that reminded me of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland when she fell through the rabbit hole. I'll have to give back the yearbook's DSLR, but I might be getting one of my own soon so I'll be able to take good quality photos without using film. I love film, but sometimes you just need a little more room to mess up, especially for a project like this. I had my sister on the shutter for this, and she sometimes likes to not pay attention while I'm explaining the framing to her.

this is the first of fifty two self portraits I will be taking throughout this next year. I'll be posting about one each week, and possibly some of my general thoughts. I have been interested in doing a project like this for a while, and two days ago I shaved my head, so I feel like this is a good time to start. I will be starting a new life after I graduate in two weeks and go to college this fall, so it will be interesting to be able to look back and see how I've changed over this year. here we go.

this is me, straight up. I have brown hair, green eyes, a few freckles, and a little bump on my lip. I have six piercings, two on one ear, three on the other, and one in my nose. I don't wear glasses but I kinda need them. I don't generally wear makeup. my mouth goes to the side a little when I don't know what to do or say. Eric Beeson took this photo for me. he got a good shot after about fifty two tries.
