That's a big axe you have

Helped Jae with a project. She set up everything, including the lighting. I was just a technician releasing the shutter, really.

Jae dumpster-dived this out of the trash for me. She figured it might make a good photo prop.

I will never complain about child proof lighters again

Another story Jae related to me. She had met these two other mothers at
the park. They each have one child. They arranged a play date, and Jae
took James over to the house of one of the other women. They're all
hanging out, and Jae realizes she hasn't seen James for a minute or two.
She does the panicked, where's my toddler head swivel, and sees the front
door is open. She runs out the front door and finds that Maggie is out
there with her boy. Maggie says James didn't come out that way. Jae
rushes back in and runs up the steps to the second floor. I gathered that
Lee, I think that's the woman whose house they were at, does massage
therapy in a room upstairs, and she must have candles or something. As Jae
got to the top of the stairs, James runs out of this room holding up one of
those long, skinny lighters in each hand, grinning from ear to ear. She
said he looked like a gun fighter with a gun in each hand.

I will never complain about the inconvenience of child proof lighters,
again.

Mother May I ...

Jae has been working consistently on training James to be polite. We work
on "Please" and "Thank You," and she's started on "May I..." So the other
day James asked her, "May I lick head please?", and tried to lick her
head.

Need a cheap, DIY backdrop


Need a cheap, DYI backdrop, originally uploaded by Josh Gentry.

I was taking these photos for Jae, to be used as painting references. She doesn't care about the background, she makes it up later. I suppose I could do that with Photoshop, but its no my style.

So I like my kitchen as a place to take pictures, but I need a backdrop, cheap. I suppose I could tack sheets to the ceiling. Better ideas?

I've been bummed lately that I haven't been making time to take pictures. Being bummed about it wasn't changing anything. Then I saw that Josette was starting a year in pictures. I got inspired. I figure it will mean posting lots of mediocre and crappy pictures, but hopefully it will also result in some good ones. This is NOT going to be a self-portrait 365. Just a picture from each day.

I'm a film guy, so there is some delay between when they are taken and when posted.

scribbling

I have been re-writing and re-writing this paragraph from my secret project.

It is raining when I wake. Jewels slide down the window, more beautiful than diamonds, and worthless. I get up feeling sluggish, my mouth full of chalk. I am empty as a cicada's shell. I go to the kitchen and drink two tall glasses of orange juice. It helps. Not enough, but it helps.
