365 Photography Project Thirty-First Post


Sunday May 08, 2011 For Mother's Day made with love from her to me!



Monday May 09, 2011 This car sits next to me in mine while I wait for Lauren after school. I like how you can, in the window, see clouds above it, buildings beyond it and even what's in it. So many levels.


Tuesday May 10, 2011 From the DVR, the House cast with their 'It Gets Better Project' vid. So cool that so many are joining in.


Wednesday May 11, 2011 Lauren wanted Crown College, Science & Technology, housing and she was accepted. Next step is to do room-selection.

 
Thursday May 12, 2011 For awhile, I've been putting together a corkboard collage, old stuff, new stuff, interests, personal, postcards from NY, old photos, a pic of Tommy and Johns & Rauschenberg, ticket stubs, drawings and so on. The 2nd photo shows its location just where I get out of bed, which I'm sitting on to take the picture.  Can be clicked to enlarge.


Friday May 13, 2011 A neon sign in the window of our nearly-every-Friday coffee-after-school place. I'm sitting at a table shooting up at the sign.


Saturday May 14, 2011 Lincoln High School, where Lauren had some additional testing to do, is the kind of high school she always wished she gone to, a building, not a campus. It's located in an older, and beautiful area of San Jose.

Corkboard
Oh, I so love your corkboard, and of course its placement is perfect.

I need to zip over to Samantha's school and take a picture quick before she graduates. It's a different from a campus as possible - it was a small, five-story office building in a block of office buildings. Maybe I'll buzz in and at least take pictures of the lobby. FanSee

Re: Corkboard
I'm glad you like the corboard, I had such fun putting it together, scouring all over the house looking for bits & pieces of paper, digging through photos...very cool.

Samantha's school must be unique, I've never heard of an office building being turned into a high school. Neat idea for an alternative use situation. Post pics if you do.

The corkboard its self had been lying around in a bedroom closet for YEARS. I looked at it one day about a month ago and thought, 'Huh?' I'm glad you like the results, it was a lot of fun to put together.

Wow, prettiest card ever!

There's something very cool about the school shot.

I know, right?

'There's something very cool about the school shot.'
It's the lighting, soft slightly overcast day, makes everything look cool.

The corkboard is really neat! And, of course, the Mother's Day card is awesome, too!

...the kind of high school she always wished she gone to, a building, not a campus

Having been to a campus that was large and spread out (in California and later in college) and being in a single building campus, I can tell you it's one of those grass is greener things. Neither type is perfect. :P

As people down here would say, going to a school were there's only one building means that it's twice as easy for people to "get all up in your business and make things messy." In other words, the gossip mill is twice as bad because, when everyone is confined to a small area, it's easy to overhear things you don't want overheard.

Of course, my high school had so few people (837 students!) that it was easy to know what everyone was up to. I think my graduating class with about 120 people.

I'm glad you like the corkboard, I had a great time putting it together

I think Lauren has a bias toward single buildings because all the manga she reads and anime she watches has big building schools with indoor lockers!! plus her dad grew-up in NY and those are the kind of schools he went to. What she does appreciate is the architecture, the schools she has attended were all built in the early 1960s and do look like they were just thrown down without much thought to style. I'm sure you're right about everyone being up in your business with very few places to run to. Lauren's school is bigger than yours with 1450 or so kids, her graduating class is 350 or so. Still, not too big and all spread out.

The homemade card is beautiful and my favorite pic is the neon sign.

I think the card is beautiful too, Lauren made it trifold with words and everything!!!! And I always know I can count on you to like what I like, the neon is a favorite.

I always mean to tell you how much I like your icon, it looks abstract to me at first glance.

I had to come over and see which one I used. Ah yes. It does seem highly abstract at first glance.
