7 Strong Avenue

7 Strong Avenue
Was a really decent Tapas place, clearly isn't anymore.
Sad to see downtown covered in paper and full of empty windows.
Former Kathy's Diner across the way too, which I'm pretty sure is still empty.

That old bar where that brawl happened. Shut down a while ago. I thought there was something in there, but maybe it closed too?

Don't Go There

Don't Go There
Wandered around Arts and Industry. Someone left the basement door open. It was CREEPY AS HELL.

I wanted to get a photo of a toilet for my ENTIRE empty seat project and now I have!!

Another one of these from the black and white assignment.

I never get at a working computer with internet, so I'm just uploading a bunch of stuff.

Her Name was Jade

Her Name was Jade
SO, we had to come up with a theme for our night shots in class, I did a few shots around town and decided on "almost human" or "humanish" or something.
I was gifted seven cosmetology heads. This one is Jade. They have names. Omg. They are the creepie…

Nighttime assignment in class. OMG, HATE IT.

Dragged this around downtown on a VERY cold night, some dude just said, "Ha, light headed" to me. Later, I almost passed out cold for no reason...
Yup, light headed.

That Feeling Like You're Drowning

That Feeling Like You're Drowning
At the Smith College Bulb Show - Edward Gorey themed. A lot of fun.
Kinda rushed through, it was very crowded, but I'm glad I got to go!

Out of focus and all, but... A little bit where I'm at in my life right now.

En Vogue

En Vogue
My professor compared this to a 1920's fashion shot. While I certainly don't fall within the aesthetic ideal of the 1920's, it is an era of art and photography that I'm fond of and am taking it very much as high praise.
I'm very happy with this image. I…

All Things That I See Are Empty

All Things That I See Are Empty
This class has made me painfully aware that I shoot a lot of empty things. Paging Dr. Freud.
Yeesh.

Was inspired to wander Arts & Industry by several of my local photog buddies.

You in a Place You Find

You in a Place You Find
The Montague Bookmill has stickers that say "Books you don't need in a place you can't find" - someone altered it. I'm still trying to figure out what this means.

This is one of my favorite places in town - Shaw's Motel.

It's being torn down at some undetermined point in the future. I'm going to miss it horribly. Fuck.

I want this sign or the Motel sign SO much. UUUUUGH.

Toward the Light

Toward the Light
Had lunch with my mom at the Vegan Palate last week. It was really nice. The food was delicious.
It was really hard to say "sweet and sour sesame soy protein" without laughing for some reason. BUT it was freaking delicious.

This beauty was stalking something in a neighbor's yard, stared at me for a moment and then took off.

39/52: iPad Cover
Two different shots of my iPad cover overlayed.

Another phoned in week, kinda, but I do actually sorta like it, though it's not really my thing.
