Grafton, Vermont

with one comment

Wow, I’ve really ignored this part of my online empire for a while.  Time to make up for that.  Sadly, it’s with sad news…

We moved around a bit when I was a kid, but I spent 3 years in Grafton, Vermont. When looking back at my childhood, those three years have always been my favorite.  Yesterday, Hurricane Irene ripped through Vermont, and Grafton was hard it.  These videos, by Bryce LeVan Cushing, show some of the damage.  It appears that tow of the roads that lead into town (of which there are only four), have been washed away.  Homes I used to ride my bike past on the way to school are gone.  One of the towns historic covered bridges were swept downstream and destroyed.

Though I haven’t been back to Vermont in about 7 years, these videos really depressed me.  So, on that note, I’m going to share them all with you now.

THE RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES-Didnt feel like a summer movie. Needed to take 25% out of the middle & add 25% more to the end. Twas “ok”

SUCKER PUNCH-Im kicking myself 4 not seeing this on the bigscreen. Pure style, no substance. As a Z Snyder fanboy, I liked it, but u may not

Model Wanted

leave a comment »

So, here’s the thing…

I’ve been playing with my camera more and more these days, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the thing I like taking pictures of the most, is people.

BUT… I don’t have anyone to take pictures of. My wife refuses, my kids don’t have the patience, and I don’t have any friends who would do it.

So, I thought I would turn to turn to the internet, but… Well, how do I do this without sound like a pervert?

My idea is to place a post on Craigslist stating something like “Wanted, a model to pose for me. I’m an amateur photographer who wants to take pictures of people, and I am looking for willing models to work for me. This is a non paying gig, but I will give you copies of all the photos taken.” -or something like that. See what I mean, sounds like I’m some creep, right?

Maybe if I came up with some other wording? Maybe if I went into a detailed explanation of my situation? But really, if I make it too long, no one is going to read it. (This is the internet after all. No one reads anything more then 6 sentences. Or so that’s my theory. Which said, makes me doubt that anyone is still reading this.)

Anyway, if anyone has any advice, please let me know what it is. I would greatly appreciate it.

COWBOYS & ALIENS – I liked the cowboy parts better then the alien parts. Nothing deep tho’. Ford has mastered the gruff old bastard role.
