I’ve known mike for nearly 24 years now. I am sure he’ll forgive me for being a couple of days late with his portrait this week.
I’m setting aside some time Sunday afternoon to add some portraits to my buffer, if you are or will be in Spokane and would like to participate in the project email me and I’ll work out the details with you. In the meantime I managed to finish tonight’s homework in just under 4 hours and so I am going to crash.
Bonnie is a future relative that I met through a school study partner rather than her brother (here).
I’ve had a few volunteers for the portrait project but I could always use some more (this schedule is really going to be murder on my non-educational productivity) so I have no gaps in posting.
I know, I know: it’s Monday (and late on Monday at that) but I was traveling last week and had my first day of my last 18 credit quarter this morning.
Jordan was one of my study partners for my Algorithms class last quarter. I would not have made it without the group’s help. Oddly enough it took nearly the entire quarter before I discovered that his fiancee is my little sister’s partner’s little sister. Life is weird like that sometimes.
Also I am currently actively looking for portrait project volunteers: if you would like to participate and in or near Spokane (or can be) drop me a line so we can coordinate it.
My youngest sisters godmother. I am not sure how she escaped inclusion in the project for as long as she did but her accomplishment must be celebrated and documented. Hence the portrait. In other news I am late with the update but the end is in sight in regards to my current schooling: I secured a DBA internship that should ideally turn into a real job at the end of it (the blue fairy said so).
Thai’s been a part of the family for a while now and he hasn’t run screaming for the hills. And we haven’t fled screaming for the hills. So that means it’s working out all right? Plus he lets me me bully him into sitting for the portrait project with zero warning so we’re better than all right.
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Venerable Geshe-la Phelgye (a visiting professor at Eastern Washington and Gonzaga University) a few weeks ago. The man was so very friendly and his optimism and good nature just bubbled out of him during our brief meeting. More information can be found at www.universalcompassion.org.
Lish is our Duetchesfest portrait. Also on a happy note our last two subjects are due to tie the knot this spring: hooray! That is even more exciting than all this sunshine that has recently appeared here in Spokane. Which is more light for photography (as soon as I complete this psuedocode for sorting a heap and a Huffman Code diagram.
John also joined us in our trek around Odessa and was (as everyone has been so far) a good sport about being a surprise participant in the project. In other news the quarter is halfway over and in a mere 7 months I can actually consider what to do with this “free time” thing kids these days are so excited about.
Adrienne was one of the brave Duetchesfestforscher up this last fall, forging a brave trail into the depths of the beer hall. Her photo should have been up last week but I finally fell prey to the flu and spend the weekend in a 102-104 degree haze.
Connie is the penultimate photographed participant of the 2012 First Annual Beer and Pie Festival. Sadly I am really going to miss typing “Beer and Pie Festival” because let’s be honest is there anything more motivating? My gut tells me no…
Jan is a another attendee of the family’s beer and pie festival (although we are coming to the sad end of this sequence of portraits) and won the award for most interestingly named male attendee easily.
Anyway, we certainly hope your holidays were merry and that you have big plans and high adventure planned for 2013!
Kristen was a friendly visitor from LA invited to the Beer and Pie Festival (a mere 24-25 weeks away) by my cousin Melissa.
The days are going to be getting longer now (more light : hooray) and here’s wishing you a happy chwanzahanukka solstice or simply a very lovely Tuesday if that’s your preference.
Annie was another attendee of the great Kobe Family Beer and Pie Festival (now only 7.5 months away) who graciously sat in front of me and my camera. This late update is brought to you by CSCD 330 Computer Networks and CSCD 250 Software Engineering: only two more finals and I can think about making some more photographs: huzzah!
It’s the end of the quarter so I am running behind (but anything with a graded deadline is ON TRACK group partners, I PROMISE! These week’s subject is Mike. Mike is another of my Uncle’s friends that had no idea that his love of homebrew was to lead him into the tangled web of my portrait project.
Pat was one of my uncle’s friends that joined us a the First Annual Kobe Family Beer & Pie Festival. Besides his appreciation of fine home brew I recall he was pretty easygoing, had a good sense of humor and did pretty well in the informal Bocce Ball tournament.
