Taking advantage of the big open spaces we’re making in the studio.

One day into 2010 and the quality of a photo suffers from being taken on a mobile phone.
This means I left the camera at home and had an enjoyable evening.
I’m totally fine with this trade-off.
An unexpected dinner at Honey in Northside was delicious.
I dropped off my friend at a tavern where she rang in the new year, and got her winter coat stolen.
I rang in 2010 watching CNN at home and watching the ball drop with some New Belgium brew.
Reflecting on the year that was, and looking forward to all that 2010 might hold.
My last photo of the year looks totally doldrum, but it was filled with joy:
One of the many awesome parts of the holiday season?
I was picking up mail and this twig was just laying there on the top step of my apartment building.
Something moved inside me and I felt the need to rescue it.
Weird, I know.
It’s got a break and part of it dangles by a thin strip of bark.
Now it has a home in a vase in my home.
I got my VW Rabbit back,
and they patched her up real good!
My friend “The Brown” took me to pick my ride up at the collision center and we dropped off her rental car on the way.
See, her brakes are soft so she rented this discontinued Pontiac to visit her family for the holidays.
While swapping junk from one rental to another, I snapped this photo.
None of this might make sense out of context, but this image pleases me.
Friends were in town for the holidays.
So it was a good time to get together.
Friends from way back…
Most everyone has kids now.
And man it’s a kick to see their little ones running around.
Tiny variations from the folks I grew up with.
And while the young ones took over the living room, we adults milled around the kitchen
with mimosas and plates of food.
