Home for a spell.

Here are some photos I took this week. Some of them are pretty, and some of them are pretty lame. First, Cowan Lake:

Here are a couple old shots I took a few summers ago. They were taken two seconds apart from each other.

Oh, lightning.

I'm aware that these posts have been pretty lame, but, I'm still testing the waters. Give me some time.

Doogie Howser, man.

Well, I suppose this is the first official post. You'll have to excuse me. I haven't been privy to the mega-structure that is the blogging world in the past, and I'm just now becoming keen on this sort of e-journaling, if you will. As an aspiring journalist I suppose it's important to document daily happenings, which I've attempted to do in one way or another for the larger part of my life. When I was a kid I was really into the allure of keeping a journal. I'd watch Doogie type his cursorless journal entries at the end of each show, and I'd set out, almost invariably, to find something to write in. Usually I got sidetracked by whatever sidetracked eight year olds back then, but every so often I'd grab a notebook from my brother's room and write lucidly about whatever. When I was nine I told my mom I was going to write a book, so I took a hefty stack of notebook paper, grabbed a pencil, and locked myself in my room. Two paragraphs later, after I introduced my two-headed sea monster and his eerie lagoon, my attention returned to GI-Joes and playthings. Since then i've tried off and on to keep a steady journal, however my attention span seems to be the only thing not developing as I get older.

So, all superfluity aside, this blogspace will most likely be filled with random photography and "ranty" antecdotes. Although, doing this really makes me want to buy an old IBM, kick back with my Dr. Pepper helmet and immature Italian friend, and write some super-sappy generalizations about how life is tough sometimes. All without a cursor, mind you.

Come on. I mean, when was the last time someone shamelessly referenced Doogie Howser, man?
