I wasn’t trying for any specific result with this, but instead just experimenting with acquiring a natural tone:

Squeaker, destroyer of worlds

In a (New) World of My Own

’m taking a break from Bhalash.com until I decide on a new CMS to use going forward. Over the last few weeks I’ve grown restless with Bhalash.com as it exists right now, until I came to the eventual realization that a fresh start with a new direction and backend was called for. And so we […]

Monkey on the bars

Back to work

Monday, ugh. With my yoke mounted atop my back, I wearily returned to work after my stunningly stunning completely awesome two-day weekend. So. My Monday. I read this thread, made my obligatory smartass reply and immediately started obsessing over writing smartass eulogies for everyone I know. He was a magnificent son of a bitch, I’ll […]

SUSHI

Dinner was comprised of shark, assorted sushi and delicious chicken kebabs. I also ate raw squid and char-grilled eel. Tonight I became a man. And for the second time in as many days I’m completely rebuilding Bhalash.com From WordPress 2.7 to 2.8. From WordPress 2.8 to Pixelpost. Christ. I decided to change my site into […]

Back on the air

Okay. Alrighty even. In three days I have torn down and completely rebuilt my site three times, which is understandably a pain in the ass to do, but with this latest rebuild the site is where it should be. I’ve decided to push my photos off onto a dedicated Pixelpost-powered website located at the URL […]

Welcome to…

I spent a few hours over the course of two days hanging around at this famous sign photographing it from different angles and in different ways. From the sides, from the front, from the rear and in normal and infrared light. I came home with about twenty usefully pretty images, of which I’ve so far […]

Caira’s third birthday

Caira turned three years old today. The big day began with Caira downing hot mug of coffee and eating a doughnut and ended up with an epic four hour visit to Chuck E Cheese’s for pizza and games where she ran seven adults ragged. Caira surprised me by planing other children. She scared them. She […]

Argh

Rise – commute – work – commute – home -dinner – kids – shower – sleep. I get maybe an hour per day to process and upload images and do take care of those essential little tasks for relaunching. I still have to assemble photobook templates, flyer templates, business card templates, and to push out […]

For Mike: Business card faceoff

Here they are, old and new: Old Card: New Card:

Jaysis

So I guess that you and I are both back to the old scheme of attacking each other here. I’ll paraphrase Winston Churchill here: ”…we shall fight on blogs, instant messages, in emails, in text messages and on the forums.” Boo yeah, Mariah. So. Your family, their (fucking) house and their outlook toward us all. […]

Thunder'n'lightning

‘Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged […]
