Bees are a pain to shoot with my android because they’re too small and too fast for the focus to find them. The firefly was cooperative though.
The Gay Games
I was in a bit of a funk yesterday, but I can think of nothing better to snap me out of it than heading up to Cleveland for The Gay Games. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a sort of Olympics for the LGBT culture, and it was amazing. I didn’t get to see any of the actual sports, but I got to go to the after-party/festival event. I probably wandered off to shoot too much though. Everytime I met back up with my wife and our friend, Megan, kept telling me how everyone thought that they were a couple. But, come on, where else can you Golden Girl shirts, a light-up stilt girl, graffiti for a good cause, rainbow EVERYTHING, and some of the nicest people around?
The Grasshopper and the Lake
My friend Anna has a birthday coming up, and since she was the one who taught me the basics of the live trace art I put on the site, I thought that I would a new design just for the occasion. Problem is though, I have a tendency to go overboard, and made five. Now, I need some help from you guys to pick the best one. Just place your vote in the handy poll box. The winning print gets the honor of being an extra special birthday gift this Saturday. So be sure to vote, and if you’re feeling extra participatory, leave a comment down below telling me what you liked/hated about the designs above.
