Two friends of mine got engaged recently. Before David proposed, Leigh had mentioned that if he ever did pop the question, she wanted pictures of her reaction. I was honored to take them :)

Night before Valentine’s Day.
I had a wonderful time with Andy tonight, even if it was just for a few hours.
But now I’m back in post-seeing-the-boyfriend depression, trying to edit a large batch of theatre pictures that I’ve been putting off for a very, very long time. I love the theatre, and I loved seeing the girls do Steel Magnolias, and I love all the girls that were in Steel Magnolias. So why can’t I get this done?
Maybe because today I’ve been listening to Emilie Simon sing beautifully in French and watching her music videos on YouTube. Have you ever seen that junk? It’s amazing. It makes me wish I could drop out of school, forget all non-photographic aspirations I have for my life, spend half my life train-bumming, and the other half selling art photography in the French Quarter.
But back to reality… theatre pictures. Right. Right.
Oh, I need to read a book and write a book review, some time soon.
Oh, and read another 120 pages of Atlas Shrugged by Monday.
Oh, and I’m leaving for a trip on Wednesday and I still have to find subs for my work shifts.
Oh, and my eyes hurt.
I’m going to continue drinking the nectar of the gods (diet coke) to stay alive, and contemplating eating my Valentine’s candy…before Valentine’s. It’s past midnight - does that count? Also, where’s the Excedrin gone?

No One Else Can Feel It For You
Taken with a Canon Rebel XT w/ 50mm lens, f/2.8, 1/4000s, ISO 1600
It snowed at my little college in Dayton, TN. A lot. Like, 6 inches a lot. And to me, from south Louisiana, that’s a lot a lot.
Assignment: Texture.
Taken 02.01.2010

Thank you, Wonkette, for being my daily news source.

I hate yoga so much. Like, if yoga was a person, I’d stab them.
Gabourey Sidibe, star of the 2009 movie Precious.
Everyone on Tumblr should support Haiti.
We have not succeeded in answering all of our problems. The answers we have found only serve to raise a whole set of new questions. In some ways we feel we are as confused as ever, but we believe we are confused on a higher level and about more important things.
Unknown. (PS, this is college.)
This is a photo I took this past semester on 11.20.2009. It was definitely a big experiment for me to do portrait photography with an external. At night, in the cold, on train tracks, nonetheless.
Taken with a Nikon D100, with a 18-35mm lens and a Speedlight external flash (not sure what model, sorry.)
35.0mm
f/4.5
1/10s
ISO 1600 (I know, I know.)
Anna Kat & Justin had just started dating when we went on this shoot. They’re adorable and gracious and I like them very much.
