I have a new camera! Photos and playlists



So here are two practice photos of my desk. I know really exciting. :) I love this artist in the second picture. It's painting by Maxine Noel (Sioux name Ioyan Mani which translates as 'Walk Beyond.' She's from Canada, and I bought it in Canada. I just don't remember when. It was after I went to bible college up there so... hmm. The first picture shows 2 of the 20,000 tomatoes someone is giving away here at work. I do love tomatoes, and Starbucks, and orange, and and and....

So I'm pretty excited that I have a camera. Granted the camera I purchased is way old. I bought it used and pretty cheap because I just purchased my tickets to Belgium and so this was an add on purchase. It's a Canon Elph (4 pixel) because really who needs 7 pixels? Of course a co-worker just came down to tell me he bought a brand new Canon Elph 7 pixels with extra card for $199 and I thought maybe I should have just spent a tiny more on this thing. Doesn't that always happen?

And since this is a smattering free writing post, my playlist while walking to work this morning included Sara Bareilles, a song from the really old Christian CD "Along the Road" by Ashton Becker and Dente, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Timbaland's song "The way I Are (YouTube Video". That song "The Way I Are" is really fun. It may be a great acceptance song, eg., "I like you just the way you are". But there is this one line and I can't figure out what D.O.E. is. Is it a dose of DOE or a dose of dope? Whatever it is it reminds me that I always think songs are about better things than they are. Once I thought that song "I Get Knocked Down (YouTube Video)" was this inspirational song about how someone keeps trying again. Nope it's about someone who gets drunk and then get's back up to drink more. I Know I should pay more attention to lyrics. I'm just going to keep my own understanding of these songs whatever they are! :)

It just turned 8:30 a.m. time to quit playing and get to work!

p.s. after minimal googleing I think it's D.O.E. who is one of the artists in song....

Congrats on your new camera! I need a new one too, thinking about getting a Holga which is a really cheap camera that is supposed to take amazing pics!! Good playlist by the way, i am listening to Sara Bareilles all day long lately.

Hey thanks for the comment. I just checked out the Holga... it's very cheap. If I was going for film I'd do that. I'm doing digital. :) Thanks for the 411. And Sara Bareilles :) yumm.

Hey.. that orange cup is totally cool.. and I thought you were going to cut down on Starbucks (buy local/organic/free trade! Support small businesses!)

I sent you a like to Cookie's website... some of the archives show better examples of his work than the current page... peruse away!

Hope you're well!
