Why I won’t be buying a Verizon iPhone

Date February 24, 2011

I am a convert. In 1998 I got my first cell phone while in graduate school. I went with Sprint and don’t really know why now, but it was the place to be back then. That first phone lasted about a year until this cool new Nokia came out (I can’t even begin to tell […]

Dusk in the Desert

Date February 14, 2011

365-44 (Feb 13), originally uploaded by nooccar. Dusk had just fallen in the desert. Low clouds rolled through the sky in my yard as a I made this photograh. It was a fluke that I saw this in B&W. I meant to process this in colour, but I pressed some button incorrectly and saw it […]

Bloody Bouganvillea Battle

Date February 14, 2011

Today I needed a digital story and wanted to use photography (obviously) but I am also using VoiceThread for a class I’m teaching at the college so I figured I would kill to bird (I mean bougies!) with one stone. Here’s my original, really amateur and homemade video “Bloody Bouganvillea Battle”.

(365-40) Feb9, originally uploaded by nooccar. Former technolgoy, the 90degree edge of a solid wood, stained and finished table leads way to newer technology, the Mac Book Pro. Together they live in harmony as this is my office. 2011/02/09: Make a photograph that features a leading line through it today. Draw the viewers eye through […]

(365-39) Feb 8

Date February 13, 2011

(365-39) Feb 8, originally uploaded by nooccar. My stuff in the morning before work sitting in the one place that would annoy the wife – on top of the stove. She hates when I put my stuff on there. About to make coffee in the new Keurig. 2011/02/08: We all prepare for things every day. […]

365-41 (Feb 10)

Date February 11, 2011

365-41 (Feb 10), originally uploaded by nooccar. Today I wanted to take the “Change your point of view. Make a photograph from an unusual point of view today.” as serious as possible. After dinner, I put my daughter to bed after her bath and dinner and then launched myself up into space. I expected to […]

Google Doc Group Sharing

Date February 9, 2011

Ok, ladies & gentlemen, drum roll please! You can now a Google Document and/or Google Document Folder with a Google Group. When you do, every member of that group is now shared to that Google Doc file/folder. I teach high school using Google Docs and have 100+ students in Google Groups. I use to have […]

365-38 (Feb 7)

Date February 8, 2011

Beyond the knotted wood and rusted bolts lies a world unframed, out of focus, and far from the maddening crowd. 2011/02/07: Use a window or a door as a frame for your subject today in a photograph. #ds449

365-37 (Feb 5)

Date February 6, 2011

365-37 (Feb 5), originally uploaded by nooccar. Fabric flower escaping the fake lights, fastly faltering, looking for life beyond, sustenance in a paper moon. My first daily shoot in months, as part of my assignments for Jim Groom’s #ds106 course. Go abstract today and make a photograph that focuses on form and color rather than […]
