I know my blog is a mess right now. (broken posts, links, missing pages) But I wanted a place to get up a better quality image than Facebook will allow. So here it is. Congratulations to Fergie and Stephanie on there amazing day. It was a lot of fun to shoot it with Brian. Thanks to Devon and Quijuana for holding my lights and helping out.
If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.
Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

Shots from sunday afternoon of my brother Keldyn and his girlfriend Sara. Thanks for coming out! Happy Anniversary.
Lunar Eclipse meets Winter Solstice.
While this image is not nearly as good as I wanted it to be, it is the best I have. A memory from an event that I will never witness again. This eclipse/solstice combination has only happened one other time in recorded history, going back to year 1. That was in 1638. Oddly enough, it seems that the next one will come much sooner. It is scheduled for 2094. I was so close to not even seeing this eclipse that night. I was already in bed and was checking facebook and twitter before I dosed off. I saw a few posts from people saying how awesome the eclipse was. So I decided that I would drag my self out of bed to catch a glimpse. I had no intention of taking pictures that night, I just wanted to look at the moon, so I could say that I saw it. But as soon as I looked up into the frigid alberta sky I knew I needed a picture. So I went back inside, grabbed my camera and tripod, suited up and went back out. And looking back I am glad that I did.
Another whole month has come and gone since I last posted here. My bad. Its not exactly the start I was hoping for in 2011. But since this is my first post of the year I guess I will write some about whats going on. This year I hope to be posting here much more regularly and hopefully the quality of the content will increase as well. I hope you like the changes I have made around here. I got a new look for the page going now and like the fresh feeling. The other thing that I want to do this year is to start writing more. Try to make this a real photo blog rather than a picture book. There will still be lots of pictures though, hopefully even more. But with each photo I want to tell a story and develop my writing. I guess all this sure sounds like a new years resolution, but nope. Its January 26. The year is almost 1/12th over. So here’s to the last 11/12th’s of 2011, my it be full of happiness and fulfilled goals.
So once again it has been a while since I have posted any pictures. This one is from a few weeks ago when we drove up to the windmills. It was a fun trip, but at the top it was super cold and windy. Those windmills are absolutely massive, it is hard to know how big they are without actually being there. You can get an idea of the scale by looking at how small my friends are at the base of the windmill. The most surprising part of being up close to these magnificent machines is the sound. The whooshing of the wind on the propellers was really cool. Enjoy!
