Photo: New Shoes…

So, I really love these shoes, but they hurt after a few hours and so, I took them off and am working (in a cubicle) barefoot (I have flip flops for when I need to leave my cube).


I asked via Twitter if it would be acceptable for me to remove the shoes and work barefoot. Here were the responses via facebook:

I went through some old photos over the weekend, here’s what I’ve come up with:

BK ladies.

Prom (I promised Mark I would find these photos).
Jenny’s baptism (look how serious we are).

and, of course, one of my munckin!

On my way to meet Jon, Jen and Ces for brunch at Magnolia, I took some test shots to see if my 18-55 would work well enough to be the lens I bring to Portland, OR. I think it will work.

When I got off the train this evening in mid-town, the light was very odd…then I looked up. Creepy and breath taking.

Gallery: Old Friends

These are old high school friends. Well, Maria is – the boys did not go to my all-girls school, but, I knew them during that period of my life. Except for Greg, who I’ve never lost touch with. How’s that for a description?
