Don't be afraid to put your feet up.
Tomorrow I head back to school and another semester of work begins. Due to my increased scholastic activities, it may prove difficult for me to update this blog as frequently as I have been doing over this snowy winter break. Then again, my procrastination skills are quite excellent, and I might very possibly turn to this blog as another way to avoid a dreaded assignment (oh, fear not– I always get the work done. And done well. Usually the procrastination comes very early on in the process. I’m actually a geek who likes to get things done both timely and well). Now that I have issued this warning, I want to take a brief moment to share some more “personal” things with you. Mainly, my dogs. You see, this morning we had a minor medical scare with my older dog (Lucky, the younger one is Nola). He’s pretty up there in years, which means that every minor abnormal behavior can sometimes give us a scare. His being older also means that this dog has been around the majority of my life– he grew up with me and he’s just as special as a human family member. Long story short, everything turned out okay. One emergency pet hospital visit, an x-ray, and some medication later, Lucky is the same old dog.
Concurrent with these happenings, I’ve recently acquired a new camera. A digital SLR (Canon, of course) that was a combined Christmas (late) and Birthday (very early) present. It has quickly become my favorite new possession, but due to so many snowbound days, my photographic subject matter has been limited. Luckily, I happen to live with two adorable dogs who somehow had the patience to sit through picture after picture with a camera in their faces. I’ve just uploaded the photos and I feel like I have to share(*Note: still learning to use the camera so don’t be too judgmental about the quality of my pictures). So, in honor of Lucky feeling better and my new camera– Enjoy!
Yesterday I stumbled upon some really wonderful surrealist artwork by Vladimir Kush. Today, in a similar wandering around the world wide web, I came across Jacek Yerka. His artwork, also surrealism, really struck me as something beautiful and magical. I’m sharing a couple pieces here, but they barely do his portfolio justice. I highly suggest looking further into his work.
What do you think? Are you as in love with these images as I am?
