12/366 – Tea

I had a much different idea planned for today, but by the time I had a chance it was a bit too dark out. So I resorted to this instead. It is fitting though since we had such a frigid day here in Minnesota. Next time the temperature drops below zero though I will be out there experimenting with my original idea.

69/365 – Seedy

*Saturday, August 6 – Stillwater, MN

Saturday afternoon I got together with a good friend for lunch. We grabbed some food from the River Market Co-Op (which has really great organic and natural food). I saw this drink there (called Mamma Chia), and thought it looked so strange; I just had to try it. It was actually pretty good. It had a bit of a strange sensation when the slimy seeds hit my mouth though. I don’t even know how to explain it other than bizarre. But I may have become obsessed with it, I already want another bottle.

35/365 – Boathouse

Well, not every shot of this 365 can be great I guess. Tonight I chose to be social and have a great night with friends rather than make a great image. My friend had a gig at the Boathouse, which is such a cool little spot I wish I would have known about before. We were hanging out tonight until close to 3:00 am. And when I got home, I decided I really didn’t want to miss a day so I should edit at 3:00am, when I just want to go to bed. I am sure I will look at my editing job tomorrow and be confused as to what I was thinking.

303/365 – Paper writing setup

Today has been insanely busy, and I totally forgot/didn’t have time to take a picture until just now, at 1 am. I am currently writing a paper that is due tomorrow, and will be working on it for a while still, so this is all I could manage for a picture today. Lame, yes, but it is a real documentation of my life tonight.

226/365 – Jones Soda

I am not much of a soda drinker (yes, I am a northerner and I say “soda”), but I absolutely love Jones Soda, and every once in a while (like once a year) I buy some. I bought some last night, and while I was driving this evening I got the image of the bottle on Elliot’s deck railing. I drove home from dropping off some photographs for a contest, grabbed my camera, and raced the setting sun to Elliot’s apartment so I could get me shot.

193/365 – Coffee and Cream

I am constantly fascinated with how liquids behave, especially drops into liquids. I don’t think it is something that I will ever get used to or grow sick of seeing.

I am not a huge coffee drinker despite the fact that I own a coffee maker (left to me by my sister-in-law). However when my dad was in town he bought some coffee and creamer, and so I decided today I needed to drink so. Plus it was just a good day for it. I recently saw a picture on Flickr of a drop of cream into coffee and so I wanted to give it a try. I know it isn’t the most interesting or spectacular image, but I am pretty happy with the results. I may upload a couple of others, at different “‘stages” of the drop.

I used a SB-600 on camera, bounced off a wall, but unfortunately cannot remember what I had it set at. Any feedback would be appreciated, I am always looking to improve!
