Stuff Around My House (Saturday)

These are pieces of New Year’s Eve confetti that I collected for the past several years that I would pick up in the courtyard of my office building after the holidays. I did not get one this year – even if I was working I wouldn’t have been able to as I was no longer in that location.

Gadgets, re-chargers and wires (my life is filled with these…)

Well, this was my last entry on this short project. Thanks for checking it out.

Stuff Around My House (Friday)

I spent today creating a better home office space (which included assembling more than one piece of furniture). One more day left for this short project of photographing objects around my house.

I’ve always enjoyed this (very heavy) statue.

Stuff Around My House (Thursday)

I was up pretty early this morning because I was supposed to attend a presentation at Hachette. It was cancelled due to the weather and I spent the early part of the day learning about CSS instead.

Here’s some stuff that’s hanging on my walls:

I spent most of today brushing up on Excel since I’ll be on the job hunt very soon. Turns out that I actually enjoy it…who knew?

I headed to the basement to take some shots today as the industrial look felt right for this snowy day’s additions.

Gallery: The Vaccines, Oberhofer at Glasslands 1/22/11

I braved the cold last night and headed out to Glasslands to see The Vaccines and Oberhofer (also Guards and Motive). I arrived early to secure a spot in the front and had an easy shoot (although the light situation is always challenging there). The full gallery is on Prefix: http://www.prefixmag.com/photos/the-vaccines-oberhofer-guards-glasslands-pics/

I’ve done something a bit different here on this post in the presentation of the images. To see nice crisp ones visit the Prefix link.

The Vaccines had a tight 30 (or so) minute set and they were really good. My friend, Jen, showed up shortly before their set — haven’t seen her in awhile (and she drove me to the train station after the show – she ROCKS).

Oberhofer. This was the best show of theirs that I’ve ever seen and after CMJ….that’s a lot of times. They also played Kidrockers a few weeks ago so you could say that I really like this band. Check them out: http://www.myspace.com/oberhofermusic

Stuff Around My House (Sunday)

Since I’m currently unemployed and it’s been a bitter cold winter, I don’t get out much… So, I’m thinking of shooting common household objects for the next few days.
