365 Pictures of 2011



So I might attempt the 365 challenge, and what better day then New Year's Eve to begin?  So get ready folks for a parade of day to day shots taken by me.  I don't think they'll necessarily have a common theme, just the best of the batch of photos for that day.  Should be a good way to get better at what I do, right?  I just hope I can find the motivation to be persistent.  So starting in the next five days, this blog is going to get a little more active. ;)

The Tick of Death

Most of you have probably seen this:


Well, one of our computers has a ticking noise from the hard drive's needle/reader thing coming loose or something.  Which means its a "pipebomb" in it own right.  So this last week I invested in a small compact external hard drive to store all my photos inside of.  And it's green!



Isn't it pretty?

Music Celebrities and How They Get Popular

So for a while now I've been thinking about the differences in artists/entertainers and how they gain their popularity.  Today it entered my mind again from coming across the picture of Miley Cyrus' new album cover.  How she, or maybe her producer, decided to change her image.  Now I'm not really a fan of her, but I had been hoping that she'd send out a better example for younger girls then her fellow Disney pop princesses have done in the past.  Lindsay Lohan really let me down, I really liked her back in her Parent Trap days.

So what is the deal with changing an image from nice cute, girl next door to club hopper?  Does that really sell CDs?   Maybe for some girls, but maybe because these girls are fed that this is what is cool.  Its cool to where barely-there clothes and disturb the peace by parading at public functions, such as baseball games, or parading the cover of a tabloid.  Because having all your bad girl ways being posted and read everywhere and anywhere is so cool.

Meanwhile, the singers/entertainers I think are cool got there because they love what they do and they don't care how many people are watching their every move.  People who still live normal lives behind there extraordinary ones.  How do I think people like Celine, Josh, Faith, and others got where they are?  Because they are genuine,  they might not have the same values that I do, but they don't go around and flaunt them.  They're real people and don't try to be someone they're not.  At least as far as I can tell.

I know I know, just because of a picture, doesn't mean someone's going down hill.  But its certainly a warning sign.  I just hope Miley keeps to home grown values, even if she is showing off her midriff.   What are your thoughts, am I overreacting, does this even make sense?  Go ahead and comment if you want.  Or not.  Whatever.

Welcome to Through My Looking Lens

This blog has been dead for this whole year.  Maybe its because I ran out of interest in what I was blogging about.  Well, I've decided to turn this into a blog that correlates with my "Photography Business".  Its not like its much of a business.  I've worked on a website off and on now, but I don't have all the skills need to get it the way I want.  So for now its just going to be this blog, and my link to Zazzle where you can buy prints of my artsy photography.  Maybe I'm just flattering myself, but here goes nothing.
