Seven photography projects to jumpstart your creativity.Seven photography projects to jumpstart your creativity.

An interesting set of ideas for shutterbugs (and other creative types) looking to do something a little different from the norm. I've always wanted to try to the 365 thing but laziness gets the better of me on day two.

Photoblog: Loch Ness Gorilla
Loch Ness Gorilla

Weird shot I picked up after bringing in the kid's zoo toys after some rain. And yes, that would be a gorilla. But on another note, who decided that gorillas have bright green eyes? Shame on you, Bronx Zoo Gift Shop.

Photoblog: Cicada Shell

A petrified shell of an insect that somehow decided to attach itself to one of my trees. Taken with my trusty Fujifilm Finepix, great little camera.

Daily Grind: Slightly productive

Name: Vin (aka tweaker)
How Vin feels today: Slightly productive @ 1:17:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Take care of some work projects, prep for this weekend's road trip extravaganza (Phish @ Hartford).

Music Stuck in Head: I Gotta Feeling / Black Eyed Peas
Make it stop. Make it stop. Make it stop. And yes, that annoying Miley Cyrus song from those goddamn Wal-Mart commercials takes second place. Stop that as well.

Stuff to do today:

  • Make small cosmetic changes to GLM
  • Add popular tags call on the right hand side (scroll down)
  • Post new photo to photoblog
  • Burn some CDs for tomorrow's CT road trip
  • Mostly because I don't feel like futzing with an iPod for two hours
  • Bring camera, snap off some photos of Phish lot scene in all it's wook splendor
  • Share said photos with GLM readers
