Once again I have resurfaced from hibernation.
I'm uploading lots and lots of pictures, so be sure to check them out!
These pictures include (but aren't limited to) concerts, political events, and travel adventures.

While I was in India, my brand new camera broke! I was trying to take a picture of the stupa where Buddha gave his first teaching. I couldn't get the top of the stupa in the frame, so I was bending in an odd way to try and get it in the frame. Well as we all know, gravity is a dominant force. I fell and because my camera was strapped to my wrist, the blow to the camera from the ground was harder than it could have been. The lens was jammed and the majority of my trip to India is now only enjoyed in my long term memory.

Being that I am one of the best slackers, I still have not repaired the camera. Yes I understand this is taboo for all photographers. But I'm not too worried about it.

So currently I take pictures with my blackberry or my mother's old digital camera (which SUCKS compared to my broken camera. It's old and has like 3 mega pixels). However, I sometimes can convince her to let me use her Nikon Coolpix S220.

I plan to have the camera repaired by the time summer arrives, as I have much traveling to do AND I'm going to be working at a real newspaper!!

So take a look around my gallery, leave some comments/love, and enjoy all that is amateur about my art.

I am a new member and don't completely understand the website yet.
Soon I'll get the hang of it, and have this page to my liking.
