The kind and generous and damn cool kids over at toycamera recently held a print auction with all proceeds going to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I threw this print in the mix and the winning bid was $150! Thank you to the winning bidder of my print: fujigirl. Check out her site for some great snowboarding shots! Thank you as well to all those who graciously bid on various prints and cameras, helping us raise $2087 for those desperately in need.

Guardsman Pass

I've been in a bit of a photographic rut lately and in order to inspire myself to bust out of it, I've been jotting down different ideas and things I've been wanting to try. Stitched panoramas are at the top of my list and this one is my first. I'm elated, to say the least. You have to know of my love affair with all things Autumn and then I'm just happy that I tried something new and unfamiliar. I tend to stick to routines and the same old same old, so it's a big deal for me when I do something out of my ordinary. At any rate, I was able to greet this wonderful season this past week with three cameras, a chilly rain storm and a good photo buddy. We took a drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City and over Guardsman Pass to Heber, Utah. Needless to say, it was absolutely gorgeous.

Why is it that my mind can hold a million ideas, all zig-zagging and bouncing off one another, but I can’t put them in some form of conscious thought? It’s irritating. I must not be in the mood. Streaming straight from my head, some random thoughts:

we’re out of eggs
“get on the train, the train, the train… say goodbye”
this new jacket
raspberry margarita
change is constant
yesterday was crazy
buy David Gray tickets tomorrow
yesterday was fun
“summer’s beginning to give up her fight”
I wish I had a metal Slinky
go look at the pumpkins
hey baby
stitched panos
that box should be downstairs
I should watch Garden State again
I should water my garden
all things happen for a reason
embrace it
run with it
have fun with it
it’s good for me
it’s different
it’s a change
it won’t last
I wonder if he’s got a website
she refused to let common sense cloud her judgment
what a fine album
way too many rings
Frisbee-throwin’ skeleton
“sometimes I feel like an evolutionary reject”
turkey sandwich
don’t forget Scrabble on Thursday
pink feather boa
second-day air?
I just wish
I worry about her
it's been a year already
