What Pumpkins?

Spritz cookies in the shape of pumpkins!

First Thanksgiving away from home, but my friends Christine and Jon had a Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of people who weren't able to go home or live here and didn't have a Thanksgiving dinner in town to go to. While eating, we watched part of Madagascar 2, part of Elf, and all of The History of the World Part 1. And then we yelled at commercials for being silly.

I made the aforementioned spritz cookies (which turned out very spicy and warm and quite different from what my mom makes) as well as cranberry sauce again. Except the cranberries didn't pop like last time and it's much more liquidy. It was kind of weird. But it tasted good and everyone really liked it, so no complaints here. I came out of last night with half a ham. So much ham. Delicious ham.

I am hamstuck.

football, college football
Three of my favourite photos I took during last weekend's football game at my college.

Expect a lot more of this. I was hired at the end of September as the athletic department's main photographer for home games and whatever other assignments they throw at me. Sports are exciting, especially when photographed in a quality and visually compelling way. Go us.

We'll Be B(Qu)Ack

U of O, go ducks
Watch out.

In other news, I am supposed to do a documentary photography project for photojournalism. It is supposed to last for the next nine weeks (until the end of term). Each week I am supposed to shoot at a minimum either one 36 exposure roll of film or the equivalent 75 digital images. The instructions talk about how we are not supposed to choose a subject matter that is too grandiose, or requires traveling (given the amount of bad weather we've been having). My professor gave ideas such as "activities in a campus group", "life in your apartment building", "life in the local laundromat, grocery store, etc." He also talks about how we owe our subjects honesty, honesty in our vision, in what we tell our subjects about our projects and its purpose, honesty in how we approach our subject, and honesty in what we present to the viewer.

In the end we will have proof sheets from each week, and 20-25 final photos chosen that are titled, as well as a several page paper of explanatory text about the project.

The problem is that I don't really know what to shoot. I would just go and say "I'm going to have my camera with me all the time for the next nine weeks and I will document my surroundings as I go along with each day, but that would mean one week on repeat times nine. I would do something with following the various athletic teams here and shoot photos at various games and meets throughout the term, but I'm trying to do something with that already for an independent photo credit thing, but currently that's sort of falling through, as neither side (the athletic department and my photography professor) seems to have the right info about it to get it started.

So, yeah. Any ideas? This town is small and boring as I'll get out. The last time I did a project about how the overall lack of anything in this town reflected on its surroundings, it kind of got shot down.

Brickfair 2010 Photos

Very late posting these to maj, but the mix of a backlog of editing and uploading many other photos and school/other priorities kept them from being posted until now.

I think my only request is if you or anyone wants to use these photos for something (a photo of one of your MOCs, a photo of you, etc.) please message me and ask first. I generally don't mind, but if I start finding my photos being used without my permission, I'll be sad that people are stealing and thinking it's ok and I'll likely request that you remove the image(s). Other than that, enjoy!
