01.2007: week 4

Freak weather is expected in Central Virginia. Like Thursday, when Jacob called from 5 miles away and asked if the snow was supposed to stick. My response: "What snow?" It wasn't snowing -- in fact, I think the sun was still out. Five minutes later, it was snowing. Five minutes after that, it was sticking (left). Ten minutes later, the ground was covered in white snow and the sun was shining (right). Welcome to Virginia: if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes. Literally.


01.2007: week 3

I kinda liked a song over the summer by this new band, The Fray. Except I didn't really know what the band's name was. I didn't know anything about them. Then I read Relevant Magazine's cover story in late summer, and listened to a copy of the CD from a friend.

Fast forward to this week -- I saw them live at the Norva. Quite possibly one of the coolest venues I've seen, it's the 4th or 5th time I've been. The guys were incredibly laid back and looked like they were just playing music and having fun. That's the kind of music I want to play. So here's this week's pic: The Fray, Live at the Norva.


01.2007: week 2.2

All the cousins together for "Christmas" in January at our house. Good times.

01.2007: week 2.1

With a title like 2.1, I'll break new ground and start off the 2nd week of the year (and the blog) with multiple pictures. But I think they're both noteworthy.

This morning I was driving to the office and pulled out of the neighborhood to see this big, swirling clouds. I pulled out my phone and snapped a picture--or so I thought. Fortunately I tried to send it before I got to far, cause I didn't actually take a picture. By the time I made a U-turn and got back, the clouds had moved. This picture isn't nearly as good as the first one, but it'll work. And now it's sunny with a high of 75 (not really 75...although 66 is pretty close) just a couple hours later. Gotta love the weather in Richmond. Our motto: if you don't like the weather, wait an hour.


01.2007: week 1

Somebody I went to college with started a photo-a-day blog. I don't think there's any way I can keep up with that many pictures, so I figured a photo-a-week blog might work. I've got 3 cameras -- new, old and phone -- so I think I should be able to come up with something at least once a week.

Starting off this week is a photo from Port Sulphur, Louisiana, week before last. After we finished working the last day, Jeff, a volunteer fire-fighter back home, wanted to stop by the town fire station. It hasn't been in operation since before Hurricane Katrina, although the trucks are still there. Jeff and I walked inside and found a cart with this flag sitting next to the truck. I don't know the story behind why the flag was there (I highly doubt it stayed there through the storm), but there it was.
