Yup, we’re still here. Just been busy/not felt like writing. Points of interest post-flood:
1 We were cat-sitting for them.
2 Several I only saw when either I or the costumer were running different directions and so I didn’t always get photos. *sigh* There was one kid in a really excellent TF2 Medic costume. Photos will be posted later, as I have to go through them all and clean them up in GIMP. Especially as my camera fritzed a few times and the image turned out all “purple-ly”.
I haven’t felt much like writing anything here of late, but I started to get into the habit of carrying my camera with me everywhere. Since the camera is handy, I’m taking more photos1. When I walked out of the house the other day, the light on this bush in our appealed to me

11 Dec 2007. Iowa. Cedar Rapids. The weather did suck. Mightly. 12 Dec 2007 everything was coated in a beautiful1 layer of ice. Fortunately my employer allows me to work from home and I did so yesterday. I still went outside, cleared off the cars and moved them to the other side of the street. Just in case the plows decided to make another pass at cleaning up our street. It wasn’t too bad out but I had a blazing headache, plus work to do and all. I took my camera outside with me and snapped a few hurried photos before rushing back inside to the warmth. Then I spent the day fighting my headache and trying to get some work done. But you don’t care about my suffering, you want pretty pictures. So go look at them already!
1 Beautiful provided you didn’t have to clear it off your car and try heading into work.
Over the summer I dug out my old Pentax K1000 SE and started taking pictures on 35mm film (specifically, Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400). In part this was to help out a friend with her upcoming costume feature in AniCoz and in part it was a desire to go back to a camera where I had all the control. I’ve finally gotten around to scanning some of the photos I’ve been taking on film and have posted them online. Please take a look at my 35mm gallery and let me know what you think.
