The Lap of Luxury

July 24, 2010

We have a five year old yellow lab, Jessie, who LOVES to swim. Sometimes we play catch with her in our backyard pool… She will swim and catch for hours without stopping. When we lay out in floats in the pool, she wants to come in with us, too… So a few weekends ago, we decided to see if she could lay on a float like a person. And she could! She layed out with us for an hour. She’s so funny! I had to document the whole thing. I picked the best photos and posted them on my Flickr.

I fell into a sewer…

March 9, 2010

I fell into a sewer todayI’ve had this idea for a photo in my head for about a week now, and I finally went and executed it last weekend.  I am in the process of looking for a DSLR, but for right now, all I have is a borrowed point and shoot.  😦

Anyways, I’m happy with how this photo turned out.  That being said, I think it could be a lot better.  I think the background is a little distracting.  Also, the hand is kind of hard to see at first glance.  I want to re-shoot the idea either at night with streetlights as lighting, or on a rainy day.  That would give it a more creepy feel, which I think would look sweet.  Maybe I’ll make some fake blood, too.  Of course, this all requires the cooperation of my boyfriend, so he can keep an eye out for cars, while I’m laying in the middle of the street.

I recommend viewing larger on my flickr.
