i hate web design

The color is all weird as soon as I save for web. It's taking me so long to do every little thing and then when I check it, it's inevitably wrong which means I have to not only change the original file, but all the html files no longer work. I know I'm doing it the long and wrong way, but it's so damn confusing.

THE best thrift store find EVER

And here it is. The best thrift store purchase EVER. only $5, and they threw in a lovely painting of a black horse which I presume was done by the same artist, but pales in comparison to the painting that I fondly refer to as: The Cat Lady.

how much do i love these?

so i just found this lindsay hinkle on natasha's blog. apparently she goes to tyler (i don't know a lot of people, so it's no big surprise that she goes there without me knowing her....) and i am in love with this work. fabric, paint, leaning naked ladies, farm animals, old furniture. what more could a person possibly want or need in a work of art? nice work lindsay.

Nikon D300 vs. Canon 50D

Okay, so I'm looking for a new camera. I have been shooting Olympus, but need to upgrade to a camera with a larger sensor and more lens choices. I need to go with Canon or Nikon. Soooo do I wait for the 50D in October or go with the best current Nikon (D300) in my price range? Apparently Nikon flash systems and low light capabilities are better, while Canon has the focusing perfect. The 50D is supposed to completely rival the D300 where the 40D couldn't, but the Canon glass is apparently preferable and that's ultimately the most important part right? I'm so confused and consumed by this that I'm annoying everyone I know with constant questions and camera discussion. I should buy the guy at Calumet a present for having to deal with me for an hour of questions today! I wish someone would just tell me what to do!

camera malfunction

i made these for an alt. process assignment. i liked them, so i took a few pictures.....then i situated my lighting and set up my tripod to actually shoot them as i lit them. it was so cool! they would catch on fire from each other and burn in big gusts then slow down and start again. took A LOT of pictures. as i was setting the last group on fire.....i had a card error. lost all the pictures. so mad i could scream and cry.
