It was frustrating today because my paper wants us to do multimedia projects so badly, and today I drove 45 minutes to a farm that would've been a perfect subject, with decent light outside, and I was only able to stay for 20 minutes due to other work stuff. It's not the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last, it's just so frustrating.

Palm trees & crossing the road

The palm trees are from my Vegas trip and the couple were just crossing the road the other day and I had my film camera with me so I took their photo.

Here are some more photos from Vegas. It was 100 degrees a couple of the days we were there and it was like walking through a furnace, especially coming from Michigan. I spent a couple days just wandering around taking photos which was fun but after a while I'd find myself quite a distance from the hotel. Then there wasn't a bench to sit on or anything. The only seat that could be found was inside a casino in front of a slot machine. That's Vegas for you.
The suitcase is something I found for free at a garage sale and took as my only luggage (carry-on) for the trip. The security lady at the airport thought it was pretty cool. Apparently it was so cool she handed it off to another security agent to look through it. The old casino sign was just something I saw while walking and it reminded me a lot of the town. Everything has to be the newest and the best and if it's not then it's not good enough. The escalator shot is a shot I took while riding up as they were coming down.

This was from my Las Vegas trip last weekend. Casinos for me are fun for about 5 seconds until the sounds and lights become a sensory overload. Of course losing my money doesn't help either. It's an absolutely amazing place though and I'd recommend everyone see it at least once in their lifetime.

I've been in Las Vegas since last Thursday and just returned at 6:00 a.m. this morning so the photo posting has been lacking because of that. I'm going to take my 'Vegas' roll of film to Wal-Mart tomorrow so hopefully I'll get to put some on here soon. This photo is from the basement of Monica's grandfather. He loves bowling and, judging by the trophy shelf, is not to bad at it either.

hockey fan

This was at a hockey game I covered last night in Indiana. Our local team is playing for a championship and the opponent is in Fort Wayne, Indiana which has been taking most of my time the last few days. This photo was after the Fort Wayne team scored a goal. The Fort Wayne fans are super serious about their hockey team.

Sunday fire

This is a brushfire from Sunday. It was exciting to shoot some flames for a change. Obviously the most important thing is that everyone was ok. This fella showed up, helped carry the fire hose out into this field, then left.
