Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I am looking for a photo buddy. Someone to go one little photo trips. Like Forest Park, wandering around town, the beach, the Zoo, and the occasional camping trip. Someone who be willing to sugest plan trips, so I'm not the one doing all the planning and proposing. That often finding good pictures involves walking around, not just driving to a vista point. A fellow photographer that understands that we are not in a hurry to get to a destination and stopping to take a picture every hundred feet or so will not bring about the end of the world. Technical level doesn't matter, nor does camera type.

Basicly a chill, laid back person, who happens to carry a camera with them and won't be winded after walking 1 mile.

Photo trip plan attempt #234509.

I've brought this up in the past and people said they wanted to go, but when it came time to picking a place, date, etc everyone was strangle quiet. But I'll give this another go...

As I know most of you, like me, are on a very tight budget. And I know a lot of you enjoy the out of doors. Who wanted to go camping?

The origin of this idea was a discussion on how I missed going on mthe annual deer hunting trip, but how I also have no desire to shoot a deer. The idea popped up that a photo hunting trip would be fun.

Head out to th woods Friday afternoon, set up camp. Get up Saturday morning and "hunt". Relax mid day. "Hunt" some more in the late afternoon. And then hang out around camp. Go to sleep. Get up, mabe "hunt". Relax. Break camp in the afternoon and head home.

Scheduling is easy for me, as I don't work weekends. So it falls on those other people who would like to go to pick/workout a date. We also need a location. For things like deer, the open spaces of Eastern Oregon and Washingtom seem to work best, but if we're not to picky, any ol' place in the wilds will do. It was also suggested that we could rent an old Forest Service firelook out. Some of which even have toilets! We could camp outside, and use th look out as a the common room.

Anyway, I was hoping a few PDXer's and some of the Seattle Crue would want to take part.

I have a pick-up with 4x4, a propane cooking set and a few other odds and ends. That means many of the communal things are taken care of and that I have a little room to spare to haul other peoples stuff up.

Anyway... If you would like to go, let me know when you can/cannot go. Where you are. How far you are willing to travel. Suggestions for sites. And what ever else you think is relevent.

[Let's try this one more time. In my journal this time...]

Shocking!!! An orgy of lust?!?!?!

"On the negative side [of marriage], there is the wedding night, during which the bride must pay the piper, so to speak, by facing for the first time the terrible experience of sex.
    At this point, dear reader, let me concede one shocking truth. Some young women actually anticipate the wedding night ordeal with curiosity and pleasure! Beware such an attitude! A selfish and sensual husband can easily take advantage of such a bride. One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: give little, give seldom, and above all, give grudgingly. Other wise what could have been a proper marriage could become an orgy of sexual lust."

-from Instruction and Advice for the Young Bride, The Madison Institute Newsletter, Fall Issue, 1894

Will the scandal ever end?!?!?!?

A few things.

First, the image archive is being slowly but surely restored. I'm up to Febuary of last year. Most everything is hidden till I can go back and filter what should be public and what shouldn't. But in the mean time I do have pictures fomr last weekend. My Dad trying to fly his kite. A bird, the dog, the Tigard Farmers Market, a cool Car Mini-Van (covered in dall parts) from Illinios (doing thier best to evade the earth quake just outside of Chicago this morning). And then some pictures from Forest Park. http://adam.ddns.sightworks.net/coppermine/thumbnails.php?album=205

And now for another joke from my Dad (it's all his fault!!!)...

Hmm... Well I was going to but cutting and pasting multiline things into Lynx is pretty ugly. I really wish I knew what it is about LJ's code that is breaking Firefox. Even the "Deepest Sender" module is dying, complaining os some script in the html code that will bring the system to a crawl.

Anyway, enjoy the pictures.
