A Fresh Start

This is really my first time with this new fangled "blog" idea. I attempted a live journal private account but when it was just for me to get frustrations out from school and personal life it didn't really feel satisfactory. Anyways, I plan on using this mostly for my photography side of life though I'm sure some personal aspects will be seen as well.

For starters, I'm 22, graduating next year from Mechanical Engineering from U of I. I have no idea what I want to do when I grow up other than photography being in there somewhere. Anything else you can really find out in the huge about me section (which I essentially just pasted from my FB account).

Anyways, I'll probably be posting a lot of pictures here though where to start is a hard choice. I guess the best place to start is my favorite picture I've taken. To set this one up I spent 6 months abroad studying in at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. It was some of the happiest times in my life and I cannot look back on it with out some part of me wishing I could just go back at any time for only a little while. My family (paternal side) has Scottish blood with quite a few of our relatives still living there. Anyways, this story could go on forever but basically I traveled to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Inverness, etc while in Scotland visiting them. When I was Edinburgh I was taken back at its shear beauty and climbed to the top of a hill overlooking the city (Calton Hill) and took this picture. It may not be artistically the best picture in the world, but I feel it captured one of the happiest times in my life. It helps that Edinburgh is the most beautiful city in the world.

P.S. I think I'll have to commission you to take a picture of me involving coffee and probably the back of my head (for a new header). :o)
