Just found this photo of my sister eating ice cream. This is about an hour after her boyfriend proposed to her last February.

I swear you marched in like big gusts of wind

Last weekend, driving home from... home. Red sky at night, sailor's delight, right?

I wanted to say something about how people are awesome and coming across these two things made me so happy. But, um. I got nothin.

Miles from where you are

My Scotland photos are kinda killing me. I want to edit them again but I just don't know how to go about doing it in an organized way. Plus I have this PC that hates me, which doesn't help either. But here is a little something from the Dunbar Lifeboat Festival that I wanted to try. What do you think?

Go Green!

This years homecoming theme was Go Green.  It's perfect cause recycling is like, SO in right now!  Let's all make thousands of fliers and hand them out to people at the parade so they can crumple them up and throw them in the street as they stumble drunk to the football game!

Okay, so I was a little annoyed that the theme was Go GREEN and then Court Street looked like a dump the whole weekend and a little more annoyed that after the GREEN parade there was a GREEN jobs rally on College Green and about 15 people showed up.

I am doing my Vico 391 photo story on the town of McArthur. I'm not sure how it's going so far. I need more story for my story.

Hotel McArthur.

Brendan Stiltner plays on the monkey bars at a playground near the grade school in McArthur.

Flat tires.

Remember When... antique store.

The Harvest Dessert Musicale. Basically a talent show for the entire town.

Rosalie Rinehart performs a "comedic pantomime" to the song, 'Mama Yo Quero'. Before the show, I heard so much about the woman who would be dressing up like Carmen Miranda and performing. The entire place roared with laughter throughout the whole performance. In the middle of the skit, she took the banana out of her hat and ate half of it then put the other half in her shirt.

Dodging Tree Branches

This is what we had to drive through to get back to Athens that weekend. As Faye and I were driving to go have lunch with Jill, we drove past this huge tree that must have JUST fallen onto this woman's house. I had to stop, so Faye took my mini van and headed to lunch without me. I felt really proud of myself for stopping, because I know that a year ago I would have driven past and then thought all day about how I should have stopped at that house, why didn't I stop at that house!? But this time I actually did. Not the most creative stuff I've ever done, but I hate that feeling when I let a photo op pass me by and I was able to turn these in for my feature assignment.

Terry Hill talks on her cell phone as she walks on the sidewalk in front of her house toward the tree that has fallen on her porch on September 14, 2008.

Terry Hill speaks with Chris Wallace about the tree that has fallen onto her porch.

Chris Wallace pulls a tree branch out from under Shelley Friedman's car as Darius Campinha-Bacole leaves his own car in the street to help.

Two patrons of the Wright Memorial Public Library run against the wind and around fallen tree branches to get to the library. Multiple people were denied access to the library because the power was out and the electronic doors were unable to be opened.

Liz Markus looks up at the tree that failed to hold a large branch up in the strong winds that hit Dayton as Robert Crane uses his cell phone to try to get help getting the branch removed. Both are juniors at The University of Dayton.

Paul Adams, Liz Markus, Robert Crane and Brandon Wingeier stand on their porches looking at the damage from the strong winds. All four are juniors at The University of Dayton.

Away from Athens

The past weekend was pretty exciting. Faye has tagged it as "a weekend for the books". It started out on Saturday driving to Columbus to attend the green jobs rally for Power Vote with other Sierra Student Coalition members. A full tank of gas and multiple confused text messages and phone calls later, we got there late and walked into a room full of fliers, poster supplies, markers and empty chairs. We were bummed.

Then we headed off to Dayton and ran into a very sad excuse for a playground at a TA stop to spend even more money that I don't have, on gasoline (I usually don't drive this much and use this much gas, I swear).

Finally getting to Faye's was a relief. She has one of the coolest houses ever. Everything is aged and collected from all over the place. I loved it.

Then we dodged falling tree branches on the way home on Sunday. But that's a post for another day.

Ten images? Is that too much for one post? It was a good weekend, what can I say...

My apologies for not posting more on Scotland. I've been slightly overwhelmed and without tools to get the job done.

Lewis and Lachlan

In Scotland with the Ohio University Field School and having tons of fun. I found Lewis Carmichael and Lachlan Imrie, both 13, at Glen Golf Club in North Berwick, Scotland, as they were hitting balls into the water and trying to hit seagulls. It was definitely the most beautiful golf course I have ever seen. It was in such a perfect location. I'm glad these two let me follow them as they finished their game.

Kayford Mountain

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip with the Ohio University chapter of the Sierra Student Coalition to Kayford Mountain, West Virginia. Larry Gibson hiked up with our small group to see what his backyard looks like: a mountaintop removal site. I did not know much about mountaintop removal before the trip and am still not sure how to look at the issue. But this guy sure is dedicated to what he does. I don't think I have ever seen someone so passionate about a subject even after 23 years of fighting for it.

Mom I updated my blog just for you.

My class had an environmental portrait assignment and Sean Cannon, a sophomore aviation major, was nice enough to drive to the Gordon K. Bush airport with me to pose in the plane he flies during class. It was definitely interesting trying to pose someone. I wasn't really sure what to do, but Sean was awesome about it and just explained what everything in the plane was while I snapped away. I tried to pretend I knew what he was talking about. This guy knows what he's doing.

If I weren't a photojournalist

Today I photographed a story for The Post on the Senior Dance Concert in Putnam Hall. It really made me miss Class Act Dance Studio in the small town of Clyde, Ohio. Then I got sad because I'm not living in Lincoln Hall next year and they are going to have a dance studio in there. Guess I'll just have to keep sneaking into the combative room at Ping when no one is around...

Ripley's Marvelous Mirror Maze

I was rummaging through my photos from spring break and stumbled upon this happy memory. My family and I went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and went into the new mirror maze that Ripley's built there. I gotta say, their museum is alright and their moving theater sucks but their aquarium and mirror maze are awesome. The maze was pretty hardcore. They even made us wear gloves so that we wouldn't smudge up the mirrors. My little sisters and my dad and I were so a-MAZE-d by the thing that we ran around in there until we got dizzy and felt sick. I kinda get lost just looking at the photos. I'm in one of them.
