i realize my first pic may not be exactly the kind of picture you were expecting me to take of the wilds of iowa. i've got more (the vast majority of them not significantly wilder than this, but whatever), and i'll put them up slowly over the next few weeks when i can. at least, that's the plan, especially if i go mushroom hunting for morels OMGSOGOOD. plus, 'shrooms are nicely graphic. come to think of it, a yellow morel picture would be a lovely counterpoint to the cave background on this… Continue

i'm living in a state - the only state - that doesn't have a national park, but that doesn't mean there isn't some recreational stuff around here to take pictures of.

i'm going to get right on that, i really am. right now i've been concentrating on writing and working at a boring 9-5 job, but my eyes are starting to cross, and i need a break. so, photography sounds like a good outlet.

wow! apparently i won something for being the 100th person to post a photo on my profile. since it's against my religion to allow pictures of myself, that photo isn't even of me. *grin* that's ok; the reason for my religious practice is that, apart from stealing part of my soul (my soul, i tell you), one of my superpowers is being anti-photogenic.

ironically, i'm choosing the fuji finepix camera.

Questionable decision to say the least ;) but somebody needs to fill the position I suppose with the limited membership currently that leaves me stuck with you.
Honestly i don't know if being stuck in the tent was all a good thing except that it portrayed me as a much larger being than I could attempt to pull off.
So what is with this stranded in Idaho? Working a normal job 9-5 job? Tell me this can't be true. Otherwise i may be entitled to revoke your membership as it is a violation of our bylaws.

Thanks for the compliment! Trust me the first encounter with that moose was, Oh hi moose ahhhhhhhhhh run, run for life, moose in tow help heeeeeellllllppppp!!!! Then at 3am when moose and calf followed me home I had the opportunity to get those shots. I would love to say I was tucked into the security of my tent but let's face it the moose would win the fight between her and said tent. Luckily it was content with staring at me from a distance letting me know it could mame me at anytime.

T-shirts........hmmmmm, excellent idea. I never thought of that, well you being the second member of the group I guess that makes you the VP toss me some ideas!

Hey Steff - you get the camera?

You make me laugh girl! That Fuji camera I stuck in the mail yesterday afternoon is a new model that has special non soul stealing picture capabilities. Keep an eye out for it's arrival.
Hey, what the heck are you doing in Iowa for the summer? I'm guessing that's part of the complicated relationship status. ;}

Hey Steff
Welcome to MyCoolworks. I get the indecisive and cagey thing. Well put. Maybe this will help - just a little. You happen to be our big winner! We've been running a contest and the 100th person who posted a profile with a profile pic wins - and that's you. :) So here's your choice - an Ipod Nano 4gb, a Fugi FinePix F20 digital camera, or a $100 gift certificate to Itunes.
So drop me an email at with your mailing address and I'll send it off to you.
Aren't you glad you joined??
