hear me roar


I got this little guy when my school went to DC last April. We stopped at the National Cathedral, which was amazing, and I bought my own gargoyle :] I think its supposed to be a chimera, then i realized it doesnt have the goat head or the snake tail so I'll have to find the tag and check xD

darkened/contrasted in gimp with curves, and used the unsharp mask

I did Brian's tag and posted it on my blog if you didn't see it,

Self Portrait

See my amazing one handed self portrait skillz? :)

OK, so I waited 40 minutes to take my portrait.  I wanted to get a cool(er) background.  In this case, a bus.

My favorite photographer in the field I intend to enter: Nate Kaiser of the Image is Found.
Wedding and portraits.

Hello friends

My apologies for being MIA of late.  Summer classes have ramped back up and I started a new job this past week so my mind has been distracted.

Tallahassee recently had a Highland Games and Celtic Festival, chocked full of weird games.
