I think my goals this summer season are going to be:
- more nature
- more natural light and strobe shots
- hopefully more male models (still don't have enough in my portfolio)
- more couples (wanna try some new ideas of shooting couples for my port)
- more babies, heheheh (practice for when I have one and for my port)
- more kids
- more pets/animals (maybe) hehehe, if I can get away from shooting my kittens
- Hmmmm, that's a long list, I prob will never get through :P

I went to a cool website today called wordle.net and it made this awesome picture for me using words off of my blog. So I thought I'd just share that with people reading my blog today. It's an awesome site and I plan to use it with my students at school.

I have to say I am going to try and get to bed early tonite, a LOADED day tomorrow. I'll need my rest. I won't even rant about the Oilers losing to the Shames on Saturday night. That's a whole other rant for another day....heheheh....(hiding my rage).
18 February 2009
The good news of the day is my back pain is almost gone...I'd say I am running at 80% which is great for me. I feel a bit of pain but nothing near what I was having a few days ago. I feel for people with chronic back pain and hope I never have to go through this on a regular basis.
Today will be a long day, I am staying late at work for a meeting so I don't expect to be home until quite late. Oh well, it'll be a good reason to get some extra work done @ work.
The Oilers are starting a TYPICAL playoff run....they win, win, win and then LOSE......just enough to tease their fans. It's like they fear success...they look like an awesome team, then POW, back to playing below average. This team seems unable to get over the hump of being an average team. HINT TO OILER MANAGAMENT: NEW COACH, NEW COACH.....look at the rest of the NHL teams, if this was the Penguins, Mac T would be long gone. I think he was an awesome player, but players don't make great coaches.....so, ummm, yeah, get a new coach plz Edmonton.
Sleep, I wish I could of slept in today...it's just one of those days I wish I could lay in bed and sleep the day away. I think I am going to be resting up this weekend.....nap time here I come.

Anyway, the 3 finalists are posted on the Oiler website and I am seriously wondering who at ATB picks finalists. Anyway, I'll try not to be a sore loser...(ATB sucks)...:). They can be sure I'll never do business with them again.....I am sure they are not going to care....considering I am no where near a rich dude.
Oh well, our classroom has a Wii and we have a fun day today....yipeeeee!!.....so I'll just forget that they didn't pick my picture and love my long weekend......hope everyone at ATB works like dogs this long weekend....muhahahahah.

So I have a deadline until noon today to enter a picture and here are the two I came up with from the shoot. I don't know which one I'll enter...here's to hoping I pick right. Yeah, only 1 more day of work till the weekend.

People that know me quite well, can testify how varied my taste in music is. One minute hardcore rapping, the next old school church music. I'll listen to top 40....but also to bands most people have never heard of like the Cadillac Tramps or The Holmes Brothers which are one of my faves. Music keeps the wheels in my brain a turning.
Tomorrow I am going to be shooting my picture to enter in to the Edmonton Oilers, Spirit Of Hockey contest. The deadline is fast approaching and I am eager to get my take in. If I were to win I would be ready to retire. :) For me to win a photography contest related to my all time favourite hockey club would be an honor. The prizes would just be icing on the cake. I will be asking for everyone that stumbles over my blog to vote for me. The big test is making the finals, only the finalists will have their work posted on the Oiler website. The voting only lasts for a few days so be ready to vote people. I am going to shoot tomorrow and hopefully have the entry mailed in before noon on Wednesday. This will take some mad photoshop skills, because my entry is going to be photoshop intensive and if it turns out anything like my mental image of it, I'm going to be in the hunt for winning this baby. (cross your eyes, toes oh yeah and fingers too please)

My happy news for the day is I won a photo contest. I won first place in the category of Urban Life on the connect to Edmonton website. I appreciate everyone that got on there and voted for my picture. I was surprised when they contacted me and told me I had been short listed and had a chance at winning.
Teacher Convention was fun, got to see some old colleagues of mine, the worst part was trying to walk around the Shaw with a sore back. I probably looked like some drug addict the way I was walking. I hope I can get my back feeling better....I have been resting it all weekend, hope it helps. Not much else is new....so I'll end this post with my winning image.

I saw this on nakedeye's blog and decided it's too cool not to post on my blog too, hehehe. (copy cat achievement)
I think stuff like this just shows how fast things are moving now with technology...I wonder how all this fast moving technology is going to impact students today, families and relationships as we speed along at such a fast pace and with seemingly litle regard for how it is impacting people, the planet and just our every day life.

I did watch the super bowl, it was quite entertaining, I just didn't have much interest in either team but it's the NFL and it was fun for me to watch. I am also excited it's a short week. I have teacher convention Thur and Fri at the SHAW!!! I hope the back holds up as I hike around from session to session. Ohhh and Tammy if you're reading this, we need to chat, I need to find out if I am still shooting that wedding for you still....heheheh. Yeah and I need that 5D you said you didn't want anymore.
