Time well wasted

Morning Glow

Mornings are the best time for pictures. I wish I had the motivation to get out of bed and take pictures more often.

This mornings motivation to stay in bed stemmed from a desire to keep my foot elevated due to the piece of glass it took last night out on Dickson street. It seems to hurt less in this position. I don't know that I've ever bled that much, and the warm chills (similar to a cold chill, only a burning sensation) I got when Jonathan was bandaging my foot was definitely a new experience. Apparently I took on the shade of an albino. Me no me gusta blood.

For me this is heaven
I tend to joke about everything. If you know me, you probably know this. I got it from my dad and like him, half the time it's only funny to me. I've always found it hard to be a serious person unless there is an absolute need to be. So when joking goes serious it's always a bit odd. Last night I was on the phone with my mom and just in passing she mentioned that they put me as beneficiary on my dad's new truck. Being the not serious person I am I proceeded to make jokes about the fact that if I die they get a nice car, and if they die all I get is a crappy truck (sure it's nice, but what the heck am I going to do with a truck?). We stayed on the subject probably a bit too long for comfort. It was just a little odd having a conversation about death with my mother. If I had thought about it I'd have just let it slide but there we were discussing our ultimate end. It's one thing to think about but another to actually discuss. I ended the subject by saying I really hoped the truck died before they did.

I took this a week or so ago from the Hillcrest towers across the street from my house. It was a very foggy morning and I actually had to wait a while before I could actually see Old Main. It reminded me of what I thought heaven looked like as a kid - buildings in the sky up with the clouds.

Professional photographer?
Ok, not really. But, a while back I got an email from an online tourist map company called schmap (I've never heard of it) asking if I would be willing to allow one of my pictures to be used on their map. Here's the link (It's under Camelback mountain and should come up when you click the link, if not you may have to cycle through the other pictures) And here's the full size

No, I did not get paid for the picture.
