Crazy Editing

Last night I went back through some of my old pics and used some unique editing in Photoshop.

Haw River Photo Shootout

Alamance County’s having a photo shootout for Earth Day. The only rules are that you have to take them within a certain time frame and they have to be taken of the Haw River. All of these are from the Swepsonville River Park. Here are the ones that I entered, plus a few.

Senior Class President

These are some campaign ads that I made up this weekend for Student Council elections… hope they turn out to be effective.

Snow Day #2

Snow Day #1

Here’s the first series of snow pictures when Graham had its biggest snow in years. This was a few weeks ago, but there were a whole lot of pictures to go through.

Old Fall Pictures

Here are a few pictures I shot during the fall and forgot to post. The leaves were pretty spectacular this year.

New Camera

I just saved up enough money to buy a new camera. I bought a Nikon D90 and have loved it so far. Here I just uploaded a few pictures of me with the new camera. It’s been a real long time since my last post, but I’ve been busy with school and basketball starting back up ever since Christmas break. Over the break my family went to Ocracoke Island and I’ll have some new pictures from that trip up shortly.

Panama: Gamboa Rainforest

Here are some pictures from my Panama trip. These were taken in the Gamboa Rainforest where the resort was for the wedding. The last picture is of the resort itself, called the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. The resort is in between the Chagres River and Panama Canal. We really enjoyed our stay there. A lot of the pictures I took were from a tram ride they have that goes up a mountain and through the forest.

Panama City

I went on vacation to Panama this summer and took a whole lot of pictures. My family went down for my cousin’s wedding. They were married at a resort in the Gamboa Rain forest and it was beautiful. We also spent a lot of time in Panama City where they currently live.

I haven’t uploaded any of the pictures I took yet, so I’m gonna have a series of posts with pictures from the trip. This first post will be of the of the pictures from the city. If you are interested in some other pictures that I’ve taken on this trip, you can contact me from my email:

Panorama Man Cannon: Revamped

I worked a little to make this picture better. You can see the original below.

Mountain State Fair

Here are the other pictures from the fair. Refer to the below article for the full story and the picture I spent all of my time on.

And, yes, that is me on the mechanical bull. I went for the money ride where if I could stay on for 8 seconds I would win $200 and lots of manly points. However, I only received a cut lip, headache, and lots of jokes. I’m proud for the 6 seconds I did stay on though!

Downtown Graham

So, I have been away from my blog for a long time, for many reasons. One I’ve been really busy with summer and the start of school. And two, I figured that not too many people would see my posts anyway. But, I’ll keep ’em coming for the chance that one day when I become famous they’ll make for good archives. haha

Even during my break I haven’t stopped taking pictures. So here’s a few i took a long time ago and they got some good feed back from family and friends.

Introducing: Downtown Graham, North Carolina.


Bored on a Saturday…

So what do two teenage guys do on a Saturday with nothing else to do? Make a music video!

This link is to a YouTube video of me and my German exchange student brother Pascal doing a parody of Ignition Remix by R Kelly.

Look foward to more videos…
