Sorry for the lazy last minute pictures xD

Hopefully over the summer that can happen

Peonies are strange
They start out all bulbous and awkward
and then ants crawl all over them xD
And they erupt into these large, beautiful flowers

Well Brian tagged me for this, and I kind of cheated xD But I saw it in the morning, right after I woke up
And no one wants to see that. xD
Anyways, this is my task:
As soon as you learn you have been tagged to play, you take a photo right away, no cleaning up, no primping, no preening. Just grab the camera and shoot. No cleaning up the photo in post either.
I wanted to post this one (before i edited it) just to be a smarty pants.
But I decided not to xD and I picked this one. I also learned I am extremely picky about self portraits.
THEN I need to talk about:
At least 1 favorite photographer in the field of photography in which you plan to pursue.
At least 1 favorite photographer who mainly used film.
This is the hard(er) part because I know very little about other photographers. xD
And I just typed out like a lot of stuff and It erased almost everything -_- SO I have to write it all over again. yay.
I am not sure what field I want to go in. I like a little bit of everything, music, fashion, abstract, nature, etc. But the first person who came to mind was Annie Leibovitz. I saw something on PBS about her a while back, when I was first really getting into photography and her photos blew me away. They're absolutely amazing. I couldn't find a link to a website specifically for her but if you google her, you'll find stuff. xD She's one of the most famous celebrity photographers, but unfortunately she went bankrupt I guess and had to sell the rights to her life's work of photographs. That kinda sucks. o_o;
As for the second question, I saw this documentary once about a photographer and it was called War Photographer. The man's name is James Nachtwey and he travels the world going to places and photographs what he sees, like wars and diseases etc. He's got some really powerful photos. He gets right up in the middle of things, putting himself in danger, for the sake of sharing what he's seen with the world. Once he got some illness from somewhere and almost died and gave his family a nice scare but he recovered and went right back out there. So, he's also pretty amazing. I dont think I could ever do what he does.
So thats that. xD
Well most of the photographers I know of who read my blog have already been tagged :P
Except for Naomi/Gracen Black. So I'm tagging her :]
This was fun xD thanks for tagging me Brian :D

I finished a really good book today. I always feel contemplative and... full when i finish a really good, satisfying book. But also like a small piece of me is gone xD But its ok because I got the next two books in the series :P
I didnt originally plan on posting this but I was editing it and decided it looked kinda neat and i had nothing else to post so here it is xD

So this is Cleveland.
The ship is actually a museum now, its called the William G Mather.
And the last pictures is the side/back of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame :]
And of course Lake Erie
Today i went on a field trip with my school to the Great Lakes Science Center. It was okay, they basically told us to sign in, when to eat and then we were on our own. It was fun but we didnt really do things with the school. Though I did meet my math teacher... Im not sure if he remembered my name or not, he didnt seem to xD and I met my advisor person... we said "hi nice to meet you" and that was about it. The teacher who talked to me the most wasnt even my teacher, haha.
Who doesnt love these things? xD theyre awesome
I also got a Venus Flytrap, its pretty cool. I looked up Greek gods on wikipedia and decided that i am going to name it Thanatos after the god of mortality and death. I thought it was fitting for a plant that eats flies :P
Also, I have this rediculous sensor/dust problem.
Is there a secret to keeping a clean sensor? :/ Whenever I switch lenses I manage to get a ton of dust and stuff on it and its really obnoxious >_< I try to always keep the camera facing downwards but apparently im doing something wrong :P
