happy birthday

Landon turned one. He was having a great time playing with his bottled water (one of his favorites I hear) when he dropped it. This is the face of a boy who did not want his water on the floor.

UFOs almost attacked me today. Fortunately, I escaped their beams.

three napkins

Here are three napkins.

Often, I have an idea of what my photo-a-day will be. On this day, we had plans to see Joshua Radin at the House of Blues. My sister Annie hooked us up with a meet & greet with Josh. Unfortunately, the security guy wouldn't allow my camera inside. Fortunately, I had taken this one photo earlier, or else my photo-a-day project would have disastrously ended. Yay napkins!

Airwolf Twilight

I've taken many helicopter shots, and most all of them are really lame. In real life, helicopters are cool. On film, they aren't as cool. They don't make noise and move around anymore.

This is the first helicopter shot I like. I caught this one just as it ducked behind a nearby tree. There is just enough motion in the blades. Of course, yesterday's photo-a-day is also a silhouette, but you can't win 'em all.

No, I'm not in prison. Strangely enough, this is outside of Lakeshore Learning Materials (it's a teacher store). Apparently, they really want to keep people out. If I had a retail store, I would try to get people in.

Fender Deville

Fender Deville, originally uploaded by billaday.

I really like my guitar amp. It's the Hot Rod DeVille™ 410. It has four 10-inch speakers, so the tone is nice and punchy.

I used my external flash, the Nikon SB600, resting on the amp aiming at the right of the guitar cable. I like the blurry knobs in the background.

On a side note, and probably boring note, you can see the red tape on the guitar cable. I used to put red tape or red marker on all my guitar stuff. Yeah, definitely boring ending.

When you're a good drummer, it's hard to not look cool.
