Well okay, damnit

So I decided pretty much to brute force myself out of the terrible mood I've been in.

I printed some of my digital photos on high-quality photo paper and they look amazing, it's the first time i've actually held a decent physical copy of any of my digital photos, very nice. I got some larger prints made, 14 x 17. Then I bought a birthday card + bow and a gift certificate for Archie's birthday art salon/wine party and rushed over to stick my photos on the walls. It was a weird scene! Archie's friends are all very nice, but they're working a very different aesthetic. I felt like a total outsider, except for the few people I knew. At first I paced nervously around the entryway and felt oafish while I slugged some wine. Eventually I settled in to a few conversations about photography, and people seemed to genuinely enjoy looking at my photographs. It was much more fun once I relaxed, but man, Archie's got some beautiful intimidating friends.

The other brute force method of mood elevation is that I'm going to London! Yay.

I'm going to visit with my dear departed pippilina for about 10 days in April and that's really cool and exciting! I haven't been back to London in 10 years! A decade! It'll be fun.

i really recommend ofoto.com for digital prints. i upload stuff there and then order 8x10s off them ($4) and occasionally 4x6s to make postcards ($0.50). they do digital photographic prints, and they're beautiful. i got a 16x20 print off one of my 3 megapixel images ($20) and it looks fantastic. i like the photo prints a lot better than ink prints, even on nice card stock..

This place (foto depo) is sort of like that. They have the big gnarly printer, and all they do are digital photo prints. It's pretty cool, the images are fantastic! My camera is only a measly 1.3 megapixel dinosaur and the results were still pretty good. I remember someone I used to work with was telling me how brilliant ofoto.com was. Now 2 people have told me how brilliant ofoto is. I'll give them a try!

cool photos. i just bought a digital camera. i havent taken any pictures yet though. I just basically turned it on. I have to be awake to read the manual. Everytime I get a new camera, other then the throw aways, I pretend I'm some famous photographer or some tourist in california. haha. i aimed it at Heidi Klum from a catalog. Better then the old posters of Zach and AC from Saved by the Bell when I was a kid
