Back to Rochester I go

August 19th, 2007

Summer flew by as usual.  Here's a quick note to let people know I'm heading back to Rochester tomorrow.  I'm still packing and preparing for the day on the road.  I'm excited to see everybody at RIT again, especially since classes don't start for another two weeks.  After I write this, the computer is the next thing to be packed…so if you need to get a hold of me, I advise calling my cell.

Weekend trip to West Virginia

May 30th, 2007

The Bailey House

As I mentioned in my last couple posts, I was in Princeton, West Virginia this past weekend. I had the opportunity to photograph my great aunt and uncle's house and property as well as the house once inhabited by my grandfather, great grandmother, and great-great aunt. I just uploaded them all to four galleries of photos from West Virginia. The photos turned out quite well, and I am looking forward to making some hard copies to send off to the family. Also, take note that I snapped a couple photos of my new car (the blue Pontiac Vibe you'll see in the first gallery). Enjoy the photos, and let me know how you like them.

Spring memories

May 29th, 2007

Jim playing Kan-Jam

I'm finally back home in Virginia, and I just posted a gallery of miscellaneous photos from RIT during this past spring quarter. The photos include people sliding in the mud after a rainy spring day, playing Kan-Jam outside Baker, getting food from The Commons, experimenting with a cheap airplane from Sol's, and discovering the illuminating properties of lava lamps. I am really looking forward to editing the photos I took in West Virginia. Some turned out quite well, so there's something to look forward to!

Traveling back home

May 26th, 2007

RIT's spring quarter ended this past week…a time that brings feelings of both happiness for classes ending, and sadness for friends separating. I certainly felt that combination of emotions. Yesterday, I left RIT with my father to travel to West Virginia. Here I am currently staying in the beautiful home of my great aunt and uncle while we work on some renovations of the Princeton, WV house of my grandfather, who passed away a few weeks ago. My mother traveled to meet us earlier today and drove up my new (used) car for me to see for the first time. Read the rest of this entry »

Still on the road

December 30th, 2006

We're still traveling and visiting family for Christmas and my birthday. I do have to say that I appreciate technology so much more when I am somewhat separated from it. Fortunately, I now at all times have my Palm Treo 700p with me. Not only does this provide access to various Internet services and web browsing (with a small screen, of course), but it allows me to connect to the Internet on my PowerBook anywhere I have a Sprint signal. I do this with the fantastic USB Modem utility that utilizes the phone's data plan we are already paying for. This kind of stuff makes me happy ;).

Home for the Holidays (and Party Photos!)

December 22nd, 2006
xmas party

I'm heading home once again for a two-week holiday break. Christmas and my birthday are just around the corner!! I have an early flight tomorrow morning, so I better get some rest. For those of you who check my website often and are eager for more content, I just posted the photos from this year's Kerby Christmas Party that my mom puts together for her department at work. Enjoy the photos, and be sure to check out the last gallery I posted (Baker Shooting Range) as well.

Ethanol has a public image

Ethanol on the front lines

Happy Independence Day! This past weekend we drove up to Virginia's northern neck to see my aunt, uncle, cousins, and their new pug puppy. When we stopped for gas before the trip, I had to snap a shot of a sign on the pump, "Contains up to 10% ethanol." Originally, I thought this was to feed off of recent somewhat positive media exposure, but it seems more is involved. If you want a good read, follow my link to this PDF from the Virginia Petroleum, Convenience and Grocery Association. By the way, my Treo 700p's camera seems to work quite nicely outside. Read on for more info and another photo. Read the rest of this entry »
