And finally, an actual shot of the building with half of it missing. These shots look so surreal, but the lighting was very strange and red. I was actually so excited that I accidentially locked my keys in my car. Luckily I had an extra one at my house.
I really like the pile of rubbish in front of the building. It looks like tenticles reaching up towards the gnarled and open face of the building. At the point when I took this picture, the room that I lived in one summer on the sixth floor was completely gone. It’s really strange now, driving past where Wahlstrom Hall used to be and seeing the sky and the town instead of the building. I’m sure that I’ll get used to it soon enough though.
Update (09/01/2005): So I guess today is BlogDay which means that bloggers are supposed to introduce their readers to some other blogs that aren’t necessarily related. Here are a few blogs that I read on a regular basis that you might find interesting or helpful.
Art Competitions List is a blog that basically lists different art competitions and links to them. It’s pretty cool and makes finding stuff to submit my work to a lot easier.
Photoblogs Magazine is an “online publication created specifically to showcase the work of photobloggers from around the world.” I just found it the other day, and there aren’t a whole lot of frequent posts, but it looks kinda promising to me.
Whitespace is a web design blog that is operated by the guy who created the 9rules network. The articles on here are usually pretty good and in depth.
And finally, although it isn’t exactly a blog, I read this webcomic called toothpaste for dinner pretty much every day. It is run by this guy, Drew, who lives in Columbus, Ohio and it is pretty much the funniest thing on the internet right now.
There’s plenty more that I read (I am subscribed to about 75 RSS feeds right now), and plenty more that I could highlight… I don’t even know why I chose the ones that I did. But anyways, there is a sampling of some of the junk I read pretty regularly. I hope you enjoy them too.
Update (09/09/2005): This is my submission for the Photo Friday challenge, “Massive.”
