Game Day

It's a big day here in the US today, game day......Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl 50 on top of that, so it is special but that's as far as my knowledge and interest goes regarding this game and sports in general. I am not a sports watching fan, it does not interest me. I watch the Olympics sometimes and that's about it but to actually watch or attend a game whether it's football, hockey or whatever.....no thanks. I'd rather take a nap, eat, go for a walk with Chhaya or read a book.
Anyhow. Last night I had a headache and my eyes were hurting, I did not even put in my contacts. Feeling better today, I really need to start drinking more water. Speaking of walks, I had my morning cup of coffee and me and Chhaya are going on a long walk today. And I will force myself to drink one large glass of water. Better than nothing.
Cindy sent me all the pictures from our shoot last month the other day, so I am going to put them up a few at a time.

Shoot With Cindy

I had an all day shoot and combined sightseeing trip with Cindy a few weeks ago. She took me out to Nelson here in Nevada, my first visits to the famous ghost town. A super cool place with soooooo much to see. Well, Cindy sent me a few of the images...... here they are.
Thank You Cindy!





I was FREEZING when we took this pic...... although it looks like I am fully enjoying the warm sun.

More Red Rock Shoot

Here are some more photos from my shoot last month at Red Rock with Cindy.











And Cindy e mailed me these nice words after the shoot, "It was so great meeting you and working with you yesterday out at Red Rock. I am so very pleased with our images! It is going to be so hard to narrow them down because there are so many amazing shots we got! You are so photogenic and are so fun and easy to work with. I also really enjoyed talking with you and hearing about your interesting life and I like that you have such great interests in Burning Man and nature, etc. You are so great to work with and I love your style!"
It's like getting a nice Yelp review! :-D
I hope to shoot with Cindy again, I rarely take pics with a woman photographer but this was a good experience, she is super cool and knows what she is doing.

Red Rock Shoot

Here are some of the photos from my Red Rock shoot that I did last month with Cindy.
More will come tomorrow. I don't want to bore you with too many pics of myself at once.
I loved shooting with Cindy, we got along great. After looking at the pics I think I need to change my lipstick to some other color when doing photo shoots, that pink glossy stuff might look OK at work but not in these pics. And I don't know why the second pic is huge....I tried making it smaller but it didn't work. Oh well.

Looking Through Pics

I am laying on my luxurious air mattress looking through old pics of myself. It's really windy in Vegas on this chilly late evening. I have been thinking about ice cream for several hours now.....cravings! Sunday is usually my ice cream and pizza day (although that can be any day, especially for ice cream), I had pizza today but not the ice cream. Maybe I will get out in the cold and get some but I kind of crave chips too. KNPR on the radio for several hours now, I love KNPR - great content and great company. When people ask me what I listen to I tell them that I hear so much music at work that I prefer talk radio on my free time and good beats when I go out dancing. KNPR.....now you now. I have to get up early in the morning and do stuff. UGH.....I HATE having to wake up early!
Here are two pics from 2008.

Getting Colder

It is rapidly getting colder here.....and while I am writing this I got this comment come through, "When it is dark - I just remember that nothing we have ever found burns as bright as SuperNova." Awwwww.......how sweet! ❤ I hope that my writings/ramblings/opinions/attempts to be funny and pictures can somehow brighten up someones day if they need it or just a way to pass the time on a regular day. Regardless of what it is.....Thank You for reading and Thank You to the ones that bother to leave a comment. Is is much appreciated by me.....!
Here are the pictures Jim took of me and Chhaya yesterday. We went to Captain Cook State Park. I had a vision of me taking some fabulous pictures in my hip waders out in the water on Stormy Lake but no that did not work out. It was too dark and windy.



So we moved up on land. The leaves are changing colors and colder winds are coming in, leaves are starting to fall off the trees and I think it's safe to say that Fall has arrived in Alaska.











Fireweed Field

There is a huge field in Sterling full of fireweed flowers. I've been wanting to take some pictures there before the fireweed is gone for the season......so I asked my friend Jim if he could help me out by being the photographer. So we went out there this evening.
The fireweed petals were already gone, so soon so fast! I was just here a week or so ago!
But the beautiful pinkish color was still around and that's what I wanted. They say that when the fireweed blooms out winter is just around the corner. So Carpe Diem! This summer is probably the most beautiful I have experienced since I've been in Alaska, so many sunny days. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the long days but they are getting shorter and shorter fast.
Here are some of the pics from the fireweed field.













Thank You to my friend Jim for the photography.



Throwback Thursday

How old do pics have to be to be considered "old" enough for Throwback Thursday? I'm not sure.....is 10 years plus valid enough? I also read somewhere that the pics need to be from a different era in your life. Really? I'm not sure about that but here are a few older pics of me. The era when I pulled my underwear up higher on the hips, that was the "fashion" then and had thinner eyebrows. Yikes on both the pulled up undies and the thin eyebrows!
Besides that I think I look pretty much the same, (a bit) younger looking in the pics and double the amount of hair. Ahhhhh.......the memories!

Shoots & Video

I have done a few more shoots and even some videos in the last week. This is all for fun and nothing serious. I like photography and I think it's fun to have pics of myself and I am not a bit ashamed to admit that. Everybody else that takes selfies likes pics of themselves just as much as I do. I just happen to be lucky enough to know people that are willing to sacrifice their precious time and take pictures of me. And yes, I take selfies too. Tons. My phone is not called a phone, it's called " the selfie machine".
Barry gave me two prints. One is one of my fave pics of myself. We were shooting at some abandoned crazy looking area outside Vegas and came across a chair, then I found a light bulb laying there and that resulted in this badass pic. I think it's from 2011. And the black and white is from a hot spring in the Lake Mead area and I think it's from 2007 or perhaps 2008. Now I can frame them and hang them up. Cool!



Then Wolf came over and we took some pics and he shot videos of me. I'm not used to video, I have no acting aspirations whatsoever and watching the result, yourself in movement, is both strange and fascinating. Kind of like hearing yourself speak on a recording, it doesn't sound like you had imagined you would sound like. So yeah.....the video was weird to watch. It's short (about three minutes) and I don't speak, Wolf added some beautiful music to it. After watching it I decided that I should had concentrated more on my posture and sticking my butt out (didn't even cross my mind) and I should had washed my hair (looks like bleh) but I was not prepared for any video taking. Oh well, maybe next time. Here are some stills taken from the video. Chhaya participated too!









And a pic from the shoot. Look how cute Chhaya's face expression is......! Awwwww the baby!

New

This is one of my images from the shoot I did last Sunday. So it's basically brand new. I only got a few images to choose from and this might be the only one that I end up sharing from that shoot. Maybe one or two more, we'll see. That's how it goes sometimes. Wes, the photographer, told me to bring heels and boots. That's it. He shoots nudes. As you can see nude can be tasteful. When some people think of nude pics of girls they think of Hustler style pics. That is not my style. I don't mind shooting nudes as long as they look something in the line of this, or cute and playful. Everybody likes different things and views "art" differently.
To me this is art. And that is the actual sun shining like a huge star behind me, pretty cool!
I don't know how Wes did it but there were light reflectors on me and flashes bouncing off me.
