An Amateur Photographers First Ever Blog

Well this is my first blog. Will it be my last? See i have a habit of starting something then not carrying it on. A little like the average persons New Years resolution.

Well i hope to keep this up and give you an insight into my life over time. I consider myself creative and love photography. So far this is something that seems to be consistent in my life (even if i dont seem to do it enough). I work as a Graphic Designer yet my main role is making sure other peoples artwork is ok for print so really i am more a graphic mechanic (if there is ever such a thing). Would like to create/design a little more but the photography seems to be growing as a hobby.

Below is a photo of mine. Just 1 for now but i have many on flicker, facebook and deviant art but i would love to start documenting the processes and experience in achieving some of the pictures. So this leaves me making bogs (hopefully). Took this whilst driving to my mums to take some washing. . . will explain in more detail one day. Couldn't help but notice the view. The day had a very heavy atmosphere, like a huge storm was about to start. I tried to capture the mood.

I hope you liked it and will hopefully be on here more often. By the way i know i am not much of a writer but i do hope that will change over time :)

The Secret Tunnels Under UT

Haha... two secret posts in a row. I have a mental list of stories I want to write here, and somehow this one had slipped off of it. Luckily, a UT Grad who goes by "The Reel Deal" posted a comment reminding me about the story. So here it goes, with a little history first.

I never thought I'd go to UT (The University of Texas, not Tennessee). Ever since I was in middle school, I always knew that I'd go to MIT - it was where the smart geeky people went, and I was one of them. When it came time to do applications for schools, I mailed two of them. One for MIT and one for WPI, a lesser known technical school in Massachusetts. I had abysmal grades, due in a large part to my refusal to do most homework and having never actually studied for a test. I always thought it was interesting to see how much of the material I'd naturally retained. Let's just say it usually wasn't over 80%.
