Yesterday was insanely busy. After running a bunch of errands I went to my sister’s house to make potential wedding invite designs. I didn’t get home until late and was feeling way too lazy and tired to post.

57/365 – Drip Drop

I was going to do a self-portrait tonight, but got a little bit lazy in terms of my picture. I am leaving for Minnesota in the morning, and I have been running around like crazy trying to get everything packed and get the house ready for me to be gone for over 3 weeks.

Also, I have some exciting news! I entered a contest through Photographer’s Forum Magazine a bit ago. There were over 14,000 photographs submitted, and the top 11% were selected as finalists. Well, I got a letter in the mail today informing me that I am a finalist! That means that my photograph will be published in their hardcover book Best of Photography 2011. I also make it to the final round of judging as a finalist, and I will find out August 15th if I place or get honorable mention. Such an exciting bit of news before I go home!

And, please remember to go vote for my portfolio and tell everyone that you know! You can vote once a day. I so appreciate each and every vote I can get, thank you for the support!

310/365 – Holding On

**Wednesday, November 15

I couldn’t think of anything to take a picture of, so I said to Whitney, “can I take a picture of your hands?” She said sure, and suggested she hold her new candle, which I then suggested we put her candle in my bird-cage; such a group effort! It took forever to edit this picture, which is why it isn’t getting up until today. I worked on it for close to two hours last night, and still wasn’t happy with it, so I decided to leave it until today.

306/365 – Soldering

Elliot occasionally gets to solder stuff at work. I have been wanting to see it basically since he started working, but whenever I am in there he never has anything to solder. Today however, I finally lucked out! So of course it had to be my 365.

And yes, I am aware I am a bit of a nerd.
