It's been exactly 1 year since my last journal update.  Oh how things have changed in a year...

Life is going very well for me, I just don't have time to spend on here any more, and I certainly haven't been taking many pictures.  I may get back into that at some point soon though.

I'm deploying in 2011 to Southeast Asia for a handful of months, hopefully I can get some cool pictures of the Bone flying around out there.

I check for comments and whatnot occasionally, so feel free to leave me a message.

Till next time,
James

So... I'm going to need you to come in this Saturday...


Hey folks,

Just checking in, been a while.  I've been stupid busy with Life.  You know how it goes.  Just posted some photos and will try to get through my comments.

Thank you to everyone who has favorited my stuff lately.  I truly appreciate your support.



Love & Peace,
James

Or at least pictures of them.  I took a whole bunch of photos and am beginning to edit them.  I'll start posting them tonight.  Look for one photo a day for the next 10 days.

Hello everyone who is interested enough to read this ;)

I've been stupid busy lately.  First was graduation.  I'm finally done with the Air Force Academy.  What a stressful four years that was...  I'm excited to be moving soon.  End of July.  If you know me and care to know where I'm going let me know.



My dog (seen in these photos: y-me.deviantart.com/art/Anothe… ) Died yesterday. :(  He had liver and spleen cancer and woke up yesterday with a bunch of fluid in his belly and in intense pain.  I took him to the vet and had him euthanized.  Never an easy thing to do.  I've been super depressed for the past two days because of it.  I miss him terribly.  He turned 13 only a couple of weeks ago.

I'm sorry for not getting to comments and watches lately.  Thank you to all of the new favorites.  I'll reply to everyone soon, just not yet.



Hope this finds all of you well and in good spirits.  Let me know what exciting things are going on in your lives.

Love and Peace,
James

Well, I've done it again.  I posted my weekly news article!

Its all pictures of guns.  Here is what I said at the intro of my article:

I offer a collection of photography of small arms, more commonly known as "guns" There are all kinds: rifles, pistols, machine guns, etc. Now you can get to know those who use them and those who don't.

If you love guns good for you. If you hate guns good for you too. Do not use this news article to argue about it. I'm not promoting a political agenda with this, so I request that you also refrain from doing so. The only agenda I have is that these pictures rock.

I have made inferences about the photos shown, they are mine and not necessarily those of the creators.

All that said, please enjoy these for their artistic creativity and beauty. Send any love to the creators of these beautiful pieces. Send any hate directly to me.

Hey everyone!

How are you all doing?  I haven't been able to be active on here in quite a while.  I've been lurking a bit but haven't been able to do much more than that for the past six months.  Senior year here at the Academy was kicking my butt...

However, now I have some breathing room with only 70+ days remaining in my cadet career.  I found out my base assignment recently and have been searching for houses.  Turns out I'm moving to Rapid City, SD to be a maintenance officer for the 28th bomb squadron up there.  I'll be working on B-1Bs.  I'm pretty excited about it.

I hope this journal finds all of you in good spirits, and more importantly, in good health.  Please let me know what you have been up to, I was forced to delete all journals in an effort to catch up...

guess my computer bit the dust again.  something shorted inside and now the damn thing won't turn on. I can't even plug my power cord in, it turns off at the adaptor immediately.  could be a while before it's fixed or I get a new one.

I'll try and update but doing so on windows mobile sucks...

With the picture of the square stones, I have uploaded the last of the photos I edited from the Poland portion of my trip.

Now onto Russia! with love.

I feel like my images only get stronger from here on out, there may be a couple of exceptions however, so don't hold that against me.  I think my photography improved because I got used to my 24-70 lens, and became more comfortable just taking pictures in the foreign countries.

I hope you all enjoy.



Also, I just bought, and watched, the movie The Machinist and because I have a poor vocabulary: it was fucking amazing! If you liked the movie Memento you will also enjoy this movie.  It features Christian Bale, but he is almost unrecognizeable.  He weighs about 120 lbs in the movie (no joke).  He looks like an anorexic.  His weight loss comes from the lack of sleep which comes from the plot twist at the end.  I couldn't figure out the plot twist at all until it happened, which is pretty uncommon for me.  Go watch the movie!  If you end up not liking it please tell me, I'll accept all of the blame :)
