photos and a webcam

June 24th, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

Well, once a week is proving too little to get my fix of photography, so I’ve taken the plunge and set up a photo blog. My goal is to have a new image up daily (during the week anyhow), but we’ll just have to see how well I’m able to stick to it ;-). Anyhow, […]

of the costly sort

June 2nd, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

This week’s theme was patriotism. I wanted to take a picture that captures some of my ambivalence about the topic. On the one hand, my Christian identity far transcends my national identity, but on the other hand I appreciate the security, freedoms, and culture (some of it, anyways) of the U.S. I found the image […]

Water Fountain

May 26th, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

I took the picture for this week’s photothursday contest (theme is water in case you hadn’t guessed) when we were on vacation in San Luis Obispo a couple months ago. We were geocaching in this park and came across a water fountain that wouldn’t turn off.

Coming Home

May 19th, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

This week’s photothursday contest was the most unique yet: “In life, this _ is something I savor.” Cool topic, but it was so wide I had trouble coming up with anything. Finally, driving home from class last night (coming from Pasadena at about 11pm) I realized there was one thing I definitely savored: coming home, […]

5 O’Clock Shadow

May 12th, 2005 by Jason · 2 Comments

After winning the photothursday competition for the first time last week I got to choose the topic for this week, and so chose self portrait. After taking a good hundred pictures that were blah I came up with a couple I liked. The inspiration for this one came from one of student photos I saw […]

tuckered

May 5th, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

r e s t. That’s the theme for this week’s photothursday contest. Dogs seem to be popular subjects for the category which makes sense since that’s about all they do (true for Toby, anyhow). I like this one because I caught the grain of the wood and Toby just as he’s starting to nod off. […]

the brady bunch

April 28th, 2005 by Jason · 1 Comment

This week’s theme for photothursday was From a Vehicle. It gave me lots of chances to get strange looks from people as I snapped pictures of them and their cars as we drove by. But all the shots of the world outside the car came out rather uninteresting, so I tried takings shots of the […]

breakfast of champions

April 21st, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

The 80s is the theme for this week’s photothursday contest. Even though I lived through it (and believe me I dressed and acted the part during that strange decade) I had a hard time coming up with anything that captured the theme. So, in came Wheaties which I certainly remember from my 80s days, but […]

cocktail

April 13th, 2005 by Jason · No Comments

This week’s photo thursday theme is motion which was the hardest theme for me thus far. “Cocktail” is a picture of Nance’s Shirley Temple (so technically not a cocktail, but cocktail is a cooler name). Not sure if it really captures the idea of motion, but it proved to be too difficult to take a […]

urban trees

April 8th, 2005 by Jason · Comments Off on urban trees

This week’s theme for photo thursday is trees. As I started looking at trees around me I noticed that many of the trees I see around me in the city are dead ones that have been cut down and the re-erected. Hence, urban trees:
