Please forgive my four day absence from this blog for I am afraid I have been carelessly swept away by the summer.
I'm sure there has been confusion as to why I kept inserting links to my Zazzle gallery and Cafe Press images and why they did not work. My Zazzle gallery originally contained three posters I designed for the bands Spoon, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens. However, I inserted the three posters into the gallery every time, only to find that it displayed the Sufjan Stevens poster. I was very puzzled, and after two days of desperately attempting to restore the other two posters to the gallery I gave up and created an account on Cafe Press where you could order framed prints of my colored and non-colored work. It was until just now that I realized one needed a Cafe Press account to order my prints, and I figured I wouldn't put you through that much trouble, that is why there is no longer a Cafe Press link.
There have been multiple reasons for my absence alongside the Zazzle/Cafe Press problem that I would rather not get into right now, but as of the moment I shall continue my daily photo. Todays photograph is yet another experiment of what happens when you take a cardboard tube and press against the lens as you snap a shot.

This is a stone sun my family bought on a trip to New Mexico when I was a child. We found it in an old pottery shop off the beaten track. I remember it was a large wooden shack surrounded by pots and statues, and if you looked past the clutter of pottery, a beautiful New Mexican landscape brought a feast for the eyes. At last, in reflection of that beautiful state, the stone sun hangs up on a wall in the pantry.

John Lennon was one of the great minds of the 20th century. He was a musician, a composer, an artist and a peacemaker, and left an impression on our world. Strawberry Fields is a 2.5 acre landscape dedicated to this poet, and is located in Central Park, New York City. When you first enter Strawberry Fields, you walk down a stone pathway that leads to a memorial sight, placed there after his death in 1980. It is a beautiful mosaic depicting the title of one of his most famous works, "Imagine", and is always adorned with roses, as gifts from those who believed in what he stood for. This is another addition to the countless photos that have already been taken of this mosaic. However, it is not as much for pictorial purposes, as it is for memorial purposes.
(1940 - 1980)

I have had this figure ever since I could remember. Over the years of my childhood parts of its body fell off, including the original stand. This photograph is an experimentation with light, which I intend to be doing more of for a change, instead of the dark and mysterious pictures I have taken in the past.

Today is the day dedicated to the bravery of our forefathers. Today is the day America shines as a country, as a whole. Today is the day a group of colonies became a nation. Today is the first day in the history of the world, that a colony broke away from its mother country.
