Sunrise Sunset
Since taking up the photography hobby I tend to watch the sky a lot more - watching for a good cloud day that will make for a good sunset. Sunrises are also quite amazing - I just don't make it up that early very often. But over the past couple weeks I've gotten to see some of both.

From Thanksgiving

This was actually a few minutes before sunset, but I liked the sun in the dilapidated barn window.

Jess and I stayed up all night to watch a sunrise - it was a great day. I was a little worried it would be too cloudy, but it was perfect.

From Sunset 12.15

Winter is great for sunsets, unfortunately they generally happen right around 5pm - right as I'm getting off work. I happened to notice this one starting at about 4:30, so I left work early ran like a crazy man over to my favorite photo spot to get a few pictures.

From KY Christmas 08

My mom actually took this one. It was Christmas eve, I had taken some pictures of the clouds earlier that day and missed the sunset. I stitched together a few of her pictures to get a panoramic shot.

The Places We've Been
So my roommate Taylor was joking around about the picture from my last post being a terrible photoshop job - I had "forgotten to put in a background." So to appease Taylor (and to stave off boredom while in the middle-of-nowhere Kentucky for Thanksgiving) I had a little fun with photoshop and the picture of Jess, Taylor, Terra and I from the Womack's wedding.

So here's what our group has been up to lately:

Taylor's dad (who just happens to be Rick Moranis) built a miniaturizing machine and forgot to mention that it now works. Thanks Rick.

We visited Mexico's famous Chechen Itza - it was smaller than we expected.

When those crazy Chinese guys popped out of the boxes during the opening ceremony I almost had a heart attack.

I mean, it's just a bunch of rocks in a field.

Sometimes you only have to venture across the street to see amazing things...

The Chinese live in the largest gated community in the world.

We all wanted to pet the duckies at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

How we found ourselves trying to escape a black hole we'll never know. Those big bastards are scary as hell.

More rocks in a field - didn't people have better things to do back then?

Calling it "Grand" really seems like an understatement

We've had some good times.
