Bird on a Wire

Here is my newest listing on Etsy. This is a scanned 35mm negative (hence the wonderful grain). A little different from my normal photos but I kinda like it!

You Can Shop From My Blog Now and Other Shop News

If you look to your left you'll see a Widget that will allow you to purchase my work directly from my blog! Of course you can head to my Etsy store too, I have the largest selection there, but I wanted to offer more options for purchasing my work.

In other news, I am working on creating pendants of my photographs and looking into other products and ways to display my photos. Stay tuned. I will announce new items here when I list them.

Holy Cow!! That's like 60%!


Whoa!! I just checked and of the 39.7 GB of used space on my (80 GB) hard drive 23.5 GB is in the My Pictures Folder! I do back everything up on an external hardrive so if my laptop goes kaput I won't lose everything, but I think it is time to start paring down what I have on my laptop photo-wise. I just hate having to connect to the external drive or find a disk if I want to look at specific photos. There are photos of mine that I haven't looked at in ages because they are sitting on a CD-R somewhere. I guess I'll have to break out the DVD-R's and get some of this onto disks so that I give my laptop a little break.


So, my fellow photographers, I want to know, how much of your drive is photos?


On another note, I am going to attempt to update my blog more so come back often!

Lunar Eclipse

This is my best shot from the lunar eclipse lastnight. I wish I had a lens with a longer reach, bit I didn't do too bad for what I had. This is cropped a bit just to make the moon a little more prominent.

My New Toy! Canon A-1, originally uploaded by Racergirl1313.

Thanks to Craigslist I picked up this barely used beauty today. In the deal I also got the leather case, manual and a Speedlight 166A, all looking new as the day they were originally purchased!

I can't wait to get outside and start taking pictures!

Crafty Week


Charming Handbag - Front, originally uploaded by Racergirl1313.

It has been a week full of sewing for me. I made two purses one for Mom and one for me. This is the one for me. I posted pics of everything on my Flickr site.

Now to figure out what to make next!
