Random Pictures - August 2009
Playing with my new camera, I took a bunch of random pictures...Waffle
House on Hillsborough Street.
The front of our house at some crazy early hour of the morning.
Chelsea took this photo on our back porch one day...we had no idea what
it was but according ot the internet it is a Candy
Leafhopper. Apparently they are fairly common but in my 33
years on this planet I'd never seen one of these things.
Chelsea also took a photo of our living room and for whatever reason I
decided I would post it so you can look jealously at our
dog painting collection (we have even more than this now).
Giant spider at the back of the house. I think these are called
writer spiders? Either way, he was just slightly smaller than my
Glamour shot of Burt Reynolds. a fancy beagle amongst the
My daily work routine...oh look it's step 5.2 of the preval processor!
I went to
some shows...here's a crappy crowd shot of Hammer No More the
Fingers. This and the next few photos were taken
at the CD
release party for the local band compilation "Hear Here" or maybe it
was "Here Hear", either way it's pretty good.
And after them, Birds of Avalon played. Here Paul is making his
guitar gently weep. What the helll does a weeping guitar sound
like anyways? Stupid Eric Clapton.
The final band that night was Annuals. The kids go nuts for these
guys. There is a really hot girl in the band, which doesn't hurt
Rob and Ivan were there enjoying the festivities with me (Ivan even
performed a song with Birds of Avalon, a rocked-out version
of the Rosebuds song on the compilation).
Local man-on-the-scene Grayson was spotted giving a thumbs up as he
left the Cradle as I fooled around with the B&W setting
on my camera.
Bad art photos (aka testing the low light capabilities of my new
camera) walking back to my car. Flyer pole.
Erectus Monotone got back together for Merge XX, and I didn't have a
ticket for that night. Luckily, they played another show a
month later at Tir Na Nog and I was front and center to catch the
action. It felt like I was transported to my early college
No idea if they will play anymore shows after this one, buy my ears
and eyes certainly hope they do.
