Frosted Outline

I had to take a break from roller derby photo editing to do something artistic.  This lead me to an area called Sudden Valley, where it remained cold enough for the frost to survive the day.    It outlined the foliage in a way I found very beautiful. This has nothing to do with the picture, …

Sneak Peak #2

I continue to edit photos from the roller derby bout this weekend.  (See Super Brawl.)   Here are a few more of the photos...enjoy!   If you don't see yourself in any photos yet, don't worry - there are A LOT more to come!  

Super Brawl

Last night, the Whidbey Island Roller Girls hosted the "Super Brawl" in Oak Harbor - The Big Hair Bandits vs. The Red Lipstick Mafia.   Julia, a.k.a. Effin' Magic, (a.k.a. Andy's sister) asked if I'd take pictures.   Well, of course!  Roller Derby seems to be growing in popularity here.  I originally became interested in it when I learned …

Letting Go

"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us."  - Joseph Campbell I'm done talking about Algebra.  My life is bigger than the sum of my math struggles, which really aren't that difficult.  I'm just a big complainer.  The neural connections formed, and …

Odd News

Do any of you fellow bloggers ever look at the "Referrers" section in your Site Stats?    As I perused my stats and maneuvered chopsticks over lunch today, I noticed a website called "Odd News".   This sparked my interest, and I clicked on the link.  The person who noticed my blog name on the WordPress link had apparently been reading a …

Algebra is Cute

I was looking at the cover of Elayn Martin-Gay's Intermediate Algebra (Fifth Edition) and thought, if a person didn't understand English, the conclusion might be drawn that this was a book on art history.  It looks so innocuous.  One would never guess that pages of formulas waited within the hardcover with indifferent patience.  But, I am beginning to appreciate some …

A Little Twisted

I cancelled a photo walk this afternoon so I could be responsible and study.  However, I still really wanted to take a picture of something... This twisty little tree is just outside my patio door.   The water droplets adorned it quite beautifully and quickly became my subject of choice.  The shallow DOF created sort of a …

Outside

Without even looking outside, I knew it was snowing.  Every post on Facebook was announcing it.   Of course, I had my nose in the books trying to figure out graphing.    This wasn't working well with my phone close by...which has internet access...which kept tempting me to check Facebook. So, I moved my phone to another room and then …
