A Memorable Birthday

by @ Thursday, October 27th, 2005. Filed under General

Last Thursday was my birthday (I hit the big 2–5). The day admittedly had its ups and downs. School was much as it always was. On the way home, I managed to smash my finger in the car door. That was definitely the low point of the day for me. I had decided I wanted […]

Comments Back On

by @ Sunday, June 8th, 2008. Filed under General

My friend Mike swears to me that the spam stopper reCAPTCHA works really well to stop spam. I’m willing to give it a try. So I have it installed, and I’ve reopened comments on all posts. I’m hopeful it will work well.

So after months of waiting and with a big thanks to Master Yoda (aka, Uncle Jim) (long story), my D200 finally arrived. W00t!  I started by taking a few pictures from around the yard. I’m still getting used to it, and I have a lot yet to learn about what all I can set, but I know for […]

Fireworks 2007

by @ Wednesday, July 4th, 2007. Filed under General

It was a GREAT year for fireworks photos. It was a nice night, the show actually started on time (well almost, like 10 minutes late), and it was a really nice show. I was in a perfect spot for photos, and managed to nab almost 200 really nice ones. Last year I didn’t end up […]

I Passed!

by @ Tuesday, November 1st, 2005. Filed under General

I admit, this has nothing to do with photography, but I had to share. I got word today I passed my last Qualifying Examination, which was one of the last huge hurdles on my way to my Doctorate.   “Dear Katie, I am pleased to inform you that you have passed the Programming Languages Qualifying […]

Just for Mike

by @ Monday, September 14th, 2009. Filed under General

Just for my friend Mike, I’m throwing up my apparently now once yearly post. Although, I cannot fathom why Mike is not busy planning his wedding. In doing so, he certainly shouldn’t have time to so casually point out the flaws of my blog. Maybe he’s just incredibly multi-talented enough to plan and wedding and […]

River Walk

by @ Thursday, April 13th, 2006. Filed under General

We often take the dogs to walk along the river, and tonight I took along the camera to get a few shots. Here’re my favorites of the lot.                      

Snow Storm

by @ Monday, October 31st, 2005. Filed under General

The 25th of October saw a freak snowstorm hit us. It was a heavy, wet snow that caused all kinds of damage. Power was out in places for nearly a week, and our Internet was down (horrors!) for several days. Dad and I had to get to school that morning, but mom snapped some nice […]

Snowy Day

by @ Saturday, February 17th, 2007. Filed under General

I headed up to the barn today, and the freezing rain that apparently missed town last week hit up in the mountains. As I was driving up, the sun was out glinting off the ice on the trees along the freeway. It was really pretty, and tempted as I was to stop and take a […]

Stupid Spam

by @ Monday, July 2nd, 2007. Filed under General

Since I’ve installed it, Akismet has caught 47,216 spam. Since it automatically deletes said spam after a while, and was generally of no thought to me, I never worried much about spam. The very occasional one or two messages that slipped through never bothered me. But lately I awake every morning to find 15-20 various […]

The Sincerest Form Of Flattery

by @ Friday, August 12th, 2005. Filed under General

I believe it has been said that¬†imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Or I could have just made that up, hard to say. I make a lot of things up. At any rate, my Uncle Jim¬†created a blog. No, check that. He created a Photography Journal. He’s been amazingly good about updating it, and […]
