Urban Bean Fly

Fly landed on my table at the Urban Bean in Uptown. Used macro to focus in all close like. Fly looks cool, but I like the way the background turned out even better. For the record, the Urban Bean doesn't have a massive fly problem or anything. It is by far my favorite coffee shop in Uptown. I can be found there at least once a week. (drinking black java)

and of course my obsession with viewing my photos inverted looks something like this...

a prime example as why draftmen earn 12/hr and graphic artists top out at 15.

try finding a niche that ppl can use as a sellable item.

pictures of a fly, wow like a 6th grader with a camera couldnt do that, your worth 50k a year!

did you go to art school? try an impressionist view of stillwater, an apocaliptic view of the metrodome, anything.

who dosent have a copy of photoshop, how are you going to impress if content is ...common, boring, disgusting. hey can you biggie size my fries?

I always enjoy finding out who my audience is. Especially the people who spend a half hour or more looking at my photos and seem to take an unusually great interest in my personal life. Guess that’s the main reason I have a sitemeter. Any ways anonymous...moving right along.

Most of what you are saying here is just confusing to me. Would you like to strike up a debate about the income levels of a draftsmen or a graphic artist? If so, why? What does that have to do with this photo?

Does it look like I’m in search of a niche that ppl can use as a sellable item? I’m sorry if I gave you that impression. You see, a fly landed on my table one day at the Urban Bean. I’d never seen such a large colorful fly before. Most flies I’ve seen are small, dark, and rather dull looking. So I took a photo. It’s really not a big deal.

Yes, a 6th grader easily could have taken the same photo. Nobody said it was a great. I just happened to like the way it turned out. Not so much the fly, but the background.

How did you get a hold of my W2s? My very, very, very close friends and family are laughing right now. Actually, I’m not sure my family knows I have a blog. So lets just go with close friends.

Yes, I went to an “Art School”. That would explain my poor grammar. I’ve never tried an Impressionist view of Stillwater. Not a bad idea though, what with all the foliage this time of year and everything. I’m a big fan chalk pastels (nice and messy) and “Pen and Ink” (nice and clean) is also a favorite of mine. Impressionist painting usually involves a lot of layering, often done in one sitting so oils or acrylics might me a better choice in this situation. An apocalyptic view of the dome would be very challenging for me. Abstract art has never been a strength of mine. Nor is photography for that matter I guess.

A lot of people have a copy of photoshop. Comments like that are just confusing.

I didn’t realize I was taking photos strictly to impress an annonymous reader. Do you have any requests? I just take photos of what I see around uptown. They’re not meant to upset or impress you in anyway.

For now, I’ll just stick to what pays the bills and continue to take photos in my spare time because that’s what I enjoy doing. That is...that is of course if thats OK with U anonymous.
