No Matter What I Do...


It is very hard to be me sometimes.  Very few people in this world have the same experience that I have.

"I have said it before and I will say it again.  You are not as great as you think you are."

Of course you would say that.  Your entire reason for existence is to be a thorn in my side, and I thank you for that.

"That makes no sense."

With you being as negative and condecending as you are, it makes me feel SO good when I do something amazing.

"Safe to assume you are going to b
ore us with some pathetic story about something that you think you did well."

You know me so well.  You would not be a good alter ego if you d
id not.

I realized years ago that no matter what I do I am really good at it.  Most times I am good at it without trying to be.  For example, this past weekend my class went on a field trip to Green Lake in Fayetteville, New York.

"TIMEOUT.  Field trip?  I thought you were in grad school, why are you taking field trips?"

*Ignorance tuned out*

While we were on the field trip I took the opportunity to try my hand at nature photography.  Instead of me telling you how great the pictures were, I will just show you.








Then we went to this waterfall.









This last one is just me showing off.


Damn it is tough to be me.

Wow. Those are awesome. I actually thought the first pic of u in front of the waterfall was the Queens Staircase in the Bahamas. Nice.

Jaded said...

I too have been on field trips as a grad (well law) student.

Can you say maximum security prison...lol.

stew!! these pictures are amazing!
my favorite are the ones over the lake; the stillness of the water is ethereal!!

and i love the last two... the plays with light are so perfect!

Stew...pics are hot!! But just to be an ass (and support Douglas a little bit) I have heard that its not as hard as taking pictures of nature cause it doesn't move...now people...different story.

@jaded - i wish i was in the bahamas. but i am glad i am not in prison.

@niki - why can't you use words that i understand? i always feel so stupid when i talk to you. but it does not matter as long as you recognize the talent

@lina - gosh, you are an ass....just tear me down why don't?!?!? but i get your point. bad thing is, i dont know what a good picture of people looks like

@kayelle - i have had one for a couple of years and i barely use it. it was a gift. you should not waste your money if you are not sure that you are going to use it a lot

@shanelle - not bad??? don't try to down play my masterpieces. they are much better than "not bad". one day you will give me the props i deserve

Don said...

Great pics.

I was thinking to myself upon seeing the initial pic that the waterfall had it going on. Then I read and scroll down and you came with even more pics. Green Lake and Chittenango Falls have it going on.


Too funny @ ignorance tuned out.
