Happy autumn, everyone! This is my favourite season of the year. The world around you just seems to thrive as the air begins to get cooler. You still have those warm days and crisp nights. The colors explode off of every plant like no other time of year. The reds, the yellows, the oranges, bright and vivid on every branch. With autumn comes two of my favourite holidays, as well. Thanksgiving, where you get the time to be in the company of your loved ones and stuff your face with no shame. And Halloween, perhaps the most fun holiday of all, where even adults get to masqerade like children and leave their identities behind for a night and revel in the glory of pure unbridled sin and earthly gluttony. Because life is for the living, after all!
With so much energy in the air, I always feel charged to do more work. I'm more inspired by the fun and playfulness of this time of year. It's a time for celebration, love, and enjoying life to its fullest. Plus, it's the last hurrah before the winter doldrums set in and we all find ourselves stuck indoors for 4 months. So I want to get out as frequently as possible and make the most of what's left of this beautiful weather and let the spirit of the season inspire me.
I've posted several new projects in the gallery and one new one here. I'm going to release more details soon, but I'm happy to announce I'll be having my second solo show early 2010 at the now legendary 12 Steps Down. The last show was awesome and I plan to make this one even better. More details to follow, but know I'm pulling out all the stops on this one. It'll be a time to remember.
Also, I'd like to take a second to thank all the people who have been stopping by my site and getting in touch with me lately. I really appreciate all the feedback. And a special howdy to Sugarland, Texas for having maybe the coolest name I think I've ever heard.
More projects in the works. Fluidoptics.com [LINK] is still going strong! Almost half a year of taking photos every day. Also, I'm attempting a rather big project that I hope to speak more about in the near future. News on that to follow. Stay tuned and see what ideas the winds of autumn sweep into my mind's eye!
