"Sustain the Romanian products" campaign. Europa FM radio had a big campaign for the Romanian producers and in the end they gave bags with different products to people that came in 3 hypermarkets from Bucharest. I did the pictures for them. :)

This is your typical Blue Jay. From what I've been told, they can be quite mean. But he looks so dashing and adorable. And he's actually quite small.
I took these two photos from the comfort of my recliner in the Florida room. The Wrens were feasting last night before dusk and the Blue Jay was out and about this morning before I left for work.
This´s the oldest man in our town. He´s now 98 years old and he´ll definitly ´ll make the 100! ; ) ... He´s still full of live and joy and so he also joined the yearly "Mardi Gras"-festival in our town. This time he went as a "countown" ... on the left side you can see the ages 98-99-100 and on the right side stands "Der Countown läuft..." which means directly translated "the countown counts".. .. so.. well.. that´s not really a good translation, but.. that´s what you can see there.

The past few days have been interesting. Between working and playing in the snow, and as Oz said, the Schizophranic weather patterns here in Vermont, things never cease to amaze me.
From the 20, a dead rose at work. It was a not very pretty rose, and looks better, and a little melancholy in black and white.
I was looking at the lens of my camera when cleaning it and notice that I could see through it. I had to see if I could get a picture of my eye. This isn't a great picture, but it creeps the hell out of me. I might try this again later.
Walking to a friends house in the snow, I brought my tripod and camera with me to get this shot. I intensified the red on the camera, other than that, no edit.
Called into work today to say that I wasn't going to work. Left a not for my parents and went snowboarding, and saw a clean van with a DRTYVAN vanity plate. I think they meant the inside of it.
The first one is my dog, Lucia (Lucy). She's really not as melancholy as she looks in the picture. She's a happy, loveable dog.
The second one is a Peace Lily. Beautiful plant.
The third one is a thumb tack. Nothing more, nothing less. I was tinkering with depth of field.

This last week has seriously kicked my ass. I was out of commission for a few days with a bad flu thing. Now I am way behind on my work, and I haven’t been taking as many pictures. Hopefully good health will lead to more photos. I have been playing around with my new holga and trying some cross processing; hopefully I will be able to get those up here soon. Also, I just scheduled the models for the spring sessions yesterday, so keep your eyes peeled for some good portraits.
Day 43- spring cleaning day – its time to clean the fucking mess that is my room. To do this, I take everything and throw it on the bed, then I neatly put everything back. This process usually repeats every 11 days
Day 44 – cold as ice day – warm up, cool down, warm up cool down, I am getting pretty tired of the meteorological schizophrenia here in Vermont. I am counting the days till the sun comes back to play.
Day 45 – Clarkson day – Went to play Frisbee in Clarkson but my camera battery went kapoot. So instead I have a photo of cute little professor tiny cat the third.
Day 46 – Bowl of Sex day – we have this bowl of condoms next to the front door in our house, and I was stuck recently by how awesome it was. Mysteriously, however, many of the condoms have gone missing, and I am sure that no one here is getting any. It must be gnomes. Horny, horny little gnomes.
Day 47 – Lay in bed day – The death has reared its ugly head, so I spent most of the day in bed taking photos. I discovered that my room is not that interesting in the dark.
Day 48 – manipulation day - I am not big on photo manipulations, but I took this photo of a flame and blew it all out of whack, and I liked it. Its like an eye, looking at you, from the abyss.
Day 49 – head in the clouds day – One of the cool things about laying in my bed is being able to get lost in the clouds. My head has been in the clouds recently, both metaphorically and quite literally. I cant seem to focus, the siren call of love and summer beckons me. Its sound lights me a flame.

The last few days I've been feeling ridiculously uninspired. On my lunch breaks I've been walking around outside, taking pictures.
These are the best ones I came up with.
Day # 49
It's a giant fern in front of my office. Other than that, I'm not sure what to say. Haha.
This is Day # 50
We had several dead or dying trees cut down around our office. That always conflicts me. I wish we didn't have to cut them down, but I also wish they weren't dead or dying. If we were cutting down live and flourishing trees, I'd probably be too occupied with being chained to the trees to be posting on here even quasi regularly.
Oh, and this photo is of the split wood. I thought it was fascinating, but I'm still not convinced I couldn't have captured in a more intriguing way.
Day # 51
This is the ground. Honestly, when you walk here, you step on more acorns than you do grass. And every time you round the back corner of the building, dozens of squirrels scatter.
Am I the only one who's feeling uninspired these days? Meh.
