Less Than Mellow

Sorry for the wait there! Tomorrow we're going to Sweet Creek Falls however, so I SHOULD have more pictures, if all goes well. :) <3

Update is officially no mo

       ....I shouldn't have started off like that. My apologies. If you're still there, please stay. (I didn't mean it!) However- I have goodies for you lovelies! Our local farmer's market here in Eugene, Oregon is, simply put, huge. It's actually quartered up into four separate blocks; the hippie stomp circle, the produce, the food, and the pretties. Enjoy! And I know it's been a while, (as ashamed as I am to admit it.) so any new feedback would be welcomed with open arms. Improvement? Collapse into chaos? By all means- yell at me!

For Colorado

       The Colorado massacre hit me hard- everyone, I should think. A killing like that is just absolutely sick. Movies should be a refuge- its where I or my Dad go when we're just overstressed and need to escape our own lives for a bit. A murder on opening night is absolutely sick.

Future Photo Obligations


Represents mild irony in vegetarians denying meat, but throwing themselves full force at pesticides?/plants?

2.) Arm covered in shells/mirror fragments
3.) Wax play

4.) Freckle shoot/lashes

5.) Woman posing w/ Mannequin?

6.) Super pale boy/Girl? Rice powder?

7.) Masquerade masks? Mask sex? Mask nudes? Lonely masked man with briefcase in a  crowd?

Your Support, It Makes Me Smile

     Imagine my surprise after returning from a ten day photography camp to find- 2,000 views! Criminy, I hope I never get used to this feeling! 2,000 of my thanks to you guys!

      So, as promised, you lovely ladies and gents will get your controversy and your iffy alarming photo shoot. (Way to thrill me, by the way. I wasn't expecting that poll to get a lick!) However, I wasn't expecting your outcome whatsoever. So yes, you'll get your crazy photos, but I already launched myself into a portrait shoot. (Two, actually.) And sooooo, guess who gets to see model shots and weird ones?
      That's coming up next, be assured. (As soon as my internet decides to man up, anyway.)

In the mean time however, I've taken up a project; (Look! A feature!)

I'd appreciate every ounce of support you folk have got. No registration required- just click the heart above my picture. Thanks guys! :)

Come To Join Us For Supper, Have You?

Sorry guys, I'm breaking out of my floral color scheme for a moment. :) I've got a few shots I'd like to share before I forget they existed.

This little one tried to join us for salad. It's not the best picture, but the personality in it made me giggle. 

Again, enter the anti-bread, anti-diary curse. This time with much, much better results. :3

Purple's the New Sexy

On the art-o'-meter, I am DEEPLY displeased with the above shot. I generally don't like hard lighting for flora & fauna- I try to save that for dramatic portraits. However, in all honesty, I was being a lazy bum, so I didn't take any other good purple shots. Feel free to maim me, but try to avoid my camera arm if you please.  

But see? Ta-da! Perfect!

DA Portfolio

As a few choice of you might know, I also have a Deviantart account- not near as much photography is on there as on here to be sure, but it's still helping to put me out there. More recently, I discovered DA portfolios. :) I have to say, the set up is a LIFESAVER. Very simple, easy to understand, a good showcase- it's everything a good portfolio should be.  Due to my g*wd-awful internet connection, it'll probably be a while before I get my best pieces up and loaded, but I do have a few. Critique would be appreciated, as usual!

Creativity is Crimson

Nursery Rhymes

And so it begins. The flower pandemic. 

You see, my poor unfortunate dearies, this seems to be the year of the macro for me. Macro + Oregon Spring/Summer + sadistic gardening mother = FLOWERS EVERYWHERE. 

And so, you simply must know that it was fairly... unavoidable, shall I say? On the other hand, at  least I'm learning. :) Learning is good. And so, to pass by this latest nursery hunt much less painfully (I hope at least), I'm going to chunk this petaled babies up by color.

Be prepared, you poor things.

This poor little guy had half is wing torn off. I found him within a foot from my droolly hound of destruction, and had no choice but to swoop him and save him. I'm glad I did, but boy, was he mad.

Hey Kitty, Kitty...

Annnnnnnnnnnd, touched up a bit. That glass was, pardon me, hell. Here's the edited version.A Little lighter, a little less... smudgy.

Apple Time

Above almost everything, I absolutely love apples. And apple blossoms. And apple pie. And goodness, it  goes on and on. So here's the latest byproduct of our lovely fantastic horizontally parallel apple tree. 

Annnnnnmd, a couple of pretties located directly below said tree. :)

A Study in Nude (Color, Mind You)

I'm honestly flabbergasted. Goodness, I never thought people would really LOOK at this thing. As maybe one or two of you know, I'm not in this for crowd pleasing. This is me trying to improve, bit by bit. But on the other hand, my face has been an awful lot like THIS lately...

Model: Phish <3

So, in payment for the few brief moments of bliss I receive from you guys, I'll try to post more artistic stuff. It seems I live in flower country at the moment though, but I'll do my best.

Little Wonders

This is my single good shot of this guy before he skedaddled back into his hidey-hole. Look at those mandibles! Goodness!

Here's one of several gorgeous moths pressed against our worn out little door. 

We Be Bloomin'

All pictures taken with my trusty Nikon D5000, using a 60 mm micro lens. 

A bit on the abstract side- it's disorienting, but I like it. It's actually a rather bulbous leaf.

The underside of a rather fascinating little mushroom.
