Meet a bolt of lightning...


So I finally finished and defended my master's thesis and graduated from Mizzou and moved to Dallas, Texas, to seek my fortune and am finally settled enough to resurrect vital life functions such as blogging and eating protein and sleeping.

A summer thunderstorm popped up out of the heat over my apartment this evening. When I looked out my window to investigate the source of the thunder, I saw an amazing sky (a staple of Texas, I'm finding) of several layers of clouds that had lightning bouncing around among them. I grabbed my camera and sat on the top step of my balcony for a few minutes before the storm either dissipated or ran away or hid (or a combination thereof. I'm glad I managed to get this picture (and this bolt - my first, I think) and am looking forward to shooting and blogging and enjoying my new city.

Meet B.

Former roommate Brandon (who's not a stranger to this blog) is in town this weekend, so we grabbed breakfast at Café Berlin and had some laughs.

He is one of my favorite people on this funny little planet.

Self portrait. 
(It's really hard to photograph your own eyeball.) 

Wow, I actually did 30 posts in 30 days! It feels good.

This is a picture of how it feels to work on my thesis.

(Someone else also took a picture of the darkened photoj hallway for his/her 30-day project (was it Calin?), but I can't find the post right now and I'm really tired. I'll update you if I find it.)

And now, for something completely different...


I am doing some photography for Mizzou's Craft Studio (a truly phenomenal resource here on campus). This morning, while working on their requests, I did a little side project of my own. I think this is a good first draft--hopefully over the rest of the semester, I can find a wider variety of backgrounds. This still feels a bit drab, which the Craft Studio definitely is not.

I was in a picture-taking mood yesterday, so I have two different images to share with y'all:


A storm bearing down on suburbia and its Walmart. (That street is curved...)


David Rees working in his office. One of my favorite scenes around Mizzou, actually.
Update: I shot David and he shot back!
