Seeing as I have a party tomorrow night which I am SURE I will be taking pictures at, I just pulled all the pictures off my camera. I thought I might share a couple with ya.

Firstly, this is a picture of some pretty rocks I bought in Topanga Canyon the other day. I love them very much and am considering purchasing more. They're shiny.

Some of you *cough-two-maybe-cough* might want to see my finished project for my art class. This is the one where I had to do 160 pictures and then pick 16 to turn into cut art paper doohickeys and put on a board. Blah blah blah. This was mine. It wasn't the best in class, but thankfully it wasn't the worst, either.

I really liked my example of economy so I turned it into a desktop that one of you will download and none of you will use. But here it is anyways, thumbnail version leads to the 1024x768 version.

The desktop version IS a little crumplety on the edges, I adjusted it from a photo I took in class, through Photoshop.

My friend Jocelyn had an example of economy that just kicked ass over mine, so I took a photo of it and turned it into a background. It's also probably a bit crumplety, but I did the best I could. I made this a desktop mainly for my own use and 'cause I thought Jocelyn might appreciate it, so if you decide to gank this please remember that this design is NOT mine and belongs to Jocelyn, who rules.

That's all, I hope a few of you enjoyed the pictures.

That pic of rainbow gems should be hanging in a major gallery somewhere, or at least get repro as a commercial poster available in artsy/booga/head shops throughout the western world...

(..seriously it, well, rocks... )

I thought it was pretty but not high quality. Glad you liked it, though! I'll show you the shop sometime when we have time, ha ha ha.

Okay, there was washout glare on one rock, and another was way too dark...
But the intense color values versus crackly sparkles just stands out against that warm neutral woodgrain, and the BENT band of sunlight with the dark shadows bracketing it was several types of brilliant.
(So maybe the woodgrain might have been more uniform and earthy... you can always find another piece of wood. Execution can be finagled, the IDEA was great - and you did good enough to show how great it was.)

Well, you're the one that knows the right names for all the nuts & bolts (in any field, the right nomenclature is mandatory...)

Yay for pretty rocks!

And trust me, you're way too hard on your art piece. It's great. :)

It's easier when you have something already pretty to work with ^_^

I really liked the martini glass, even before I scrolled down to see you had made a desktop of it. Most of the top and bottom rows are particularly nice, really. I can just imagine what drawing 160 images does to stretch the limits of your creativity, so its cool you made a few gems out of it.

And speaking of gems, nice lighting on that photo. :)

You're so sweet all I can think of is to give you a big thank you on all of it!!

Preeeeeeetty rocks. <3 Very cool project, too. My favorites are the top left and the center-left one, the flames with theater seats before them... or at least that's what it looks like to me. Awesome...
Heh, I stole the martini glass wallpaper and it's on my desktop right now, so ha!... XD;
