New Yawk...

Well, in typical Fifer style, I have no idea what she's up to these days.  I believe it is a combo of house sitting, baby sitting, and always on the run.  At this particular point she was living at a friends house who she was watching while the parents were out of town.  The girl lives in a high rise in Greenwich village so Fifer and I got to hang on the roof.

This is the Apple store on Fifth during black friday.  Not that I'm religious, but do parents even mention Jesus when they talk about Christmas these days?

Shaena and I cruised over to the ice skating rink in Manhattan.  Lurked there for a bit.

So, to make a long story short, I had an awesome but awkward adventure to New York for Thanksgiving.  My sister was hosting the dinner at her place in Brooklyn along with my brother from Philly and my cousin who  goes to school at the School of Visual Arts.  I also hung with the lovely Shaena Mallett and had an excellent adventure with Fifer.  I suppose I'll write more about the trip on a later post, i just wanted to get some photos thrown up... especially since it's been a long while.

End of quarter

Well, it's been an interesting past few days.  I promised to keep up the blog, which, kinda failed.  But, it's not because I've been lazy, I've just been working on a legit website.  It's still in progress but up and running nonetheless.  Let me know what you all think.  A while back I was going to post a picture of my bike that I had just gotten this quarter.  Mention something about how much I love cruising around Athens on it and the beautiful view I get when riding to my 8:30 class.  But, go figure, it got stolen.  Not sure how or why.  But I'm still pretty bummed about it.  So, if you see this bike, let me know.  Since this quarter is over, I am going to New York to be with my sister and brother for thanksgiving and Atlanta for the Photoj seminar.  This break should be good for me to calm down, find my face, and get some good contacts for next quarter's picture story class.

New Change of Pace

Yea, so it's been more than a while.  And in this time, a lot has changed.  An immense amount.  I mean, my last post was during 222.  I am now almost done with 391.  Most notably through those times is my trip to Scotland and one hell of an epic campaign that is now over with.  Both experiences have radically changed my perception of life, faith in humanity, connecting with people, and becoming much more aware of everything that goes on around me.  I would love to talk about each one, but it's been too long.  Anyways, next quarter is 392 which is going to be very difficult and demanding.  Luckily, scotland got me 15 credit hours ahead so I am planning on taking only 13 credit hours so I can focus on photography and my own mental well-being.  With that said, I am hoping that I will find time to get in the habit of updating my blog.  Maybe not even for viewer's sake, but just for my own sense of satisfaction.  Undoubtedly, my trip to Scotland and other random anecdotes will seep through onto other future posts.  Look for those and other random bits and pieces that I find worth mentioning.

window to the soul assignment...

Okay, so the other day I walked into a church and shot a priest reading a bible.

Andy p's video...

My good friend Andy Poland and his buddies have been working on a video for an online video contest.  It seems like it's going to be pretty rad despite -4 degree weather they were shooting in yesterday.  Anyways, i've been hanging around the set shooting some photos for their poster and promo pics.  A couple turned out...

new year...

It's been crazy recently with a new quarter and coming back from a pretty ridiculous winter break.  I'm finally getting settled into a now white covered Athens.  This quarter should be interesting and hopefully i'll start to produce some more work I'm really proud of.  I have a couple ideas floating around in my head for my vico 222 class so we'll see where those end up.  Here are some random images I took over break.
