So...a lot has gone on in my life this past year,  the twists and turns of life I suppose.  I was still taking photos,  just not with the same exuberance as in the past.  I currently have 27.7 GB of raw photos on my powerbook here and that was part of the problem.  You see iPhoto was quite literally taking me 25 minutes to start;  I think that seriously killed my desire to go out shooting,  the import process was very time consuming.  In anticipation of my recent trip I remedied two issues with my laptop here,  the first being my battery which could last all of 10 seconds without outlet power,  the second being the issue of ram.  After I completed swapping in the 2 GB of ram iPhoto took 25 seconds to load facilitating my photographic needs once more.

So I have posted my finished photos from the Dallas Zoo,  I also have more to post from my street shooting and from Carlsbad Caverns.  All the photos are complete,  probably took me about 10 hours total...around 10 minutes average per photo.

I'm planning for some more trips in the near future,  so hopefully even more to come soon.  I think I need to take a journey to the past and spend more time working on the technical aspects of shooting, return to forcing myself to go fully manual and really work on technique.  Maybe I should do some reading and learn some new tricks.

So look for more soon and I hope you enjoy the new sets of photos,  I had a lot of fun taking these photos. :)

Hey Charlie Brown.
Trying out old haunts. I missed a call from you today while at work. One of these days I will call back. I've been in a bit of a... mood... I'll be out eventually. Till then, hey. Maybe visual communication? Just ask Oleg, I'm nearly impossible to get on the phone.

Hey there!
Sorry I've been unresponsive.
I've been that way with all my friends.
Sorting some stuff out in my head. And getting myself together and prepared for the most serious application to an MFA programme.
I'd appreciate any help you could give. :)

Happy Holidays!
