Suicide Bridge

Suicide Bridge, originally uploaded by billaday.

Wayne and I went photo shooting for his birthday. We ended up at Suicide Bridge in Pasadena (right next to the Rose Bowl.) Apparantly, 150 have jumped off this bridge, landing tragically in the Arroyo Seco River. You can find the whole set of photos here.

And this looks killer on black!

This is the side of some building near Little Tokyo. I had to go to the Japanese American Museum for work, so I put extra money in the meter and walked around downtown. Taking good/interesting photos of the sides of buildings is way harder than I thought it would be.

(If the title isn't funny to you, go look at Zel's photos. This shot reminds me of his work.)

ceremony, originally uploaded by billaday.

After 2 years of construction, our new library media center had its grand opening at my school. This is the ribbon for the official ceremony. It was a dark red, so I used my flash here. I didn't quite imagine this, but I'm really glad with the result. I read somewhere that every one of your photos is better or worse than you intended. I'm glad this ended up better than I thought it would.

My tummmy huhts

My tummmy huhts, originally uploaded by billaday.

One of my best memories of being a kid was when I got to eat endless strawberries. My mom laid out a blanket outside (cuz I was sloppy), and I would eat and eat until I could eat no more. For my finale, I would always end (with a 4 year old's lisp, of course) with, "My tummmy huhts," because I would always eat too many.

The Burning Bush, except for the burning part

Pruning plants is a strange thing to me, unless you make a topiary giraffe. This just looks strange and artificial to me. Edward Scissorhands is, of course, exempt.

unplugged, originally uploaded by billaday.

I think that guitar stuff is still pretty cool. After 450ish photo-a-days and 14 years of guitar, though, I am cautious/worried/aware of taking the same photo. So, here's another part of playing guitar--the cable. Plug it in, rock it out.

The Primaries

The Primaries, originally uploaded by billaday.

Obama vs. Hillary vs. McCain vs. Nadar... just kidding about the Ralph Nadar part. I think Newsweek should run with this photo on the cover: Red vs. Blue. Just kidding, sort of. Really, it's just a curb that has political undertones. Yeah.
