[ in the middle of the pouring rain ]

I've been away for a couple days! I'm such a slacker. Well, not really, because the reason I haven't been posting is because I've been working my butt off, and I'm always exhausted when I get home.

[ plus Jesse got me re-hooked on Civilization IV... my English civilization is kicking ass! ]

Anyway, slight change in my work life. I came to the conclusion that shooting in the studio with Brenda wasn't going to work for me. I'm not a studio girl... not in the traditional sense, that is. I find no passion in setting up lights, and posing people. I want to catch people doing what they do best: being themselves. So, instead of being a second shooter for her, I'm just going to be editing and designing albums. And instead of being paid hourly, I'll be paid by project. And instead of working at her house on her computer, I'll be working at my apartment on my computer.

This is all very very good, as it will save me time and money, since I won't be driving all over the Valley for work five days a week. Now I'll only be heading down to Avondale three times a week, instead of five, as I'll be doing three full days of work at Stuart's, instead of four three-hour-days and one full day.

It'll be different, but good.

In my not-work-related-life, I've been futzing with Photoshop a lot. Just fiddling with settings, seeing what everything does. The following two images have come out of my futzing:

[ kelly with flowers ]

[ marielle with trees ]

Both are photographs that I shot, with other photographs I shot added over them. I like 'em. It's fun and different, maybe even a little grungy. But they're making me smile.

And no, the subject of my post has nothing to do with the post. The song was just stuck in my head.

Becca, without knowing it, you just saved my sanity!!!

I love the walking in memphis song, and I happened to check your blog, and saw it. And now I've made the best Pandora radio station ever because of your divine inspiration.

Work on a saturday mornind would have been unbearable without it, thank you!!!
