|05:19 am - Sadness + Storms|
I've not posted in awhile, this is because I've not had time to do any sort of real photography outdoors, due to a combination of school and work.
As such, I've dug out something from my archives while I'm posting to say I'm still alive.
Anyway. Have I mentioned that Texas storms are the best? Because I think they are. :D
That was my second (the first was done with a point-and-click, even) shot of lightning ever. I should make the attempt for a better one someday. However, the thunder was so loud and so quickly behind it, that I realized that standing in a field with a camera on a metal tripod was a very bad idea. The whole kit just went into the car without dismantling and I took off without a second thought.
While I'm posting photos, though... I feel that it is necessary to post a photo my dad took using my camera.
Yay. :D (Yes, it is still watermarked for my site. You better believe I'm protecting my graduation photos!)
I hope to be back into my groove again soon. o/`

Another random photo found while working on homework. This one taken while I was in Cleveland.

I'm just letting people know I'm still alive, if not drowning in school-work and work-work.
This photo was taken almost exactly a year ago today. We're supposed to start getting hit by storms again soon. Maybe I'll have more opportunities for awesome cloud photos in the future.

|05:23 am - 03-06-2010 - PixyJunket Show|
Retro'd image thanks to an action made by night_fate@DevArt
This is the first of two sets from tonight. The second is still pending as there are a *lot* that I took tonight.
PixyJunket- you can find him on Facebook and Twitter- is new to the chiptune music scene. He did his first live show tonight at Fat Daddy's, playing on two old Game Boys. It was a great mixture of rock, techno, and some potentially industrial, as he called it.
I apologize for the noise level in some of these photos. I forgot how much cranking up to 1600 ISO does with it sometimes. D:

So of course, I had to test on my favorite 'test subject.'

|06:23 am - Record Snowfall Part 2|
I decided to go trek through the dark with my camera to clear my head while I was stuck on some homework.

|11:37 pm - Snowpocalypse in Dallas|
I heard this word quite a few times today. It's not anything like what the east coast got, in terms of snow, but considering the area, it's still a significant amount.
Dallas has never had this much snowfall in a single day. Ever.
Last night, the NWS predicted 1-3 inches. So far, we're nearing 10 inches and it's still snowing. People have been saying that it may not let up for another 5-6 hours, as well. The record was set in the 1970's at 7.8 inches.
Today is the first time in a couple of months that I've pulled out my camera, and today was my first experience photographing snow. My roommate commented that it was neat seeing a lot of people be a kid again. We have an Oncor facility nearby with large hills around it. Local people swarmed around it with sleds (some even brought skis!). When I saw the crowd there, I felt that I had to go get photos.
Eventually, I had an issue with snow on my lens and started having trouble with focusing. My camera, I've learned last year, does not fare well in cold weather. I knew my time outside with it was very limited.

|10:46 pm - Christmas at the Gaylord Texan|
Wait. What? I know. I'm two months late. Shut up.
One of these photos was going to be this year's Christmas card, but I never had the time to touch it up and print it.
Only three right now. I took a ton, and I intend to post more, but another gallery has my attention at the moment.
So. Have at it, guys. :D

|01:54 pm - All Hail Emperor Dogatine!!|
Sorta. I was getting some photos together for my help_haiti contributions, when I found a few photos I had forgotten I had taken of Maggie.
Since I've not posted in awhile, due to school and stress, I'll at least post a few older photos.
The best part of these is that she actually has both of her ears up, which is exceedingly rare.

|03:17 pm - Offerings for help_haiti|
I'm putting up two offerings on the auctions for different charities for the disaster in Haiti.
One - A cosplay photoshoot at a location of your choice in Dallas, Tx or in Baltimore, MD during Otakon.
Two - Two mounted/matted photography prints of your choice (with the exception of portraits and cosplay photos) from kayceephoto or http://tsukasa.deviantart.com.
