Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Photoblog today. Sorry, dial-uppers. This may make your computer explode like a seagull in front of a Big Unit fastball.

So, I'm in a photography class now (along with metals and digital, but those are two entirely different tales of woe), and we had an assignment to do over break. We were given a list of vague topics and were supposed to choose 10 and take a number of shots for each one of the ten. It was all very art school-- you know, 'try to interpret the topics in a unique and creative way', 'compose your shots in a unique and interesting fashion', etc.

One of the topics was 'something in the air'. I knew, just knew, that people were going to show up with photos of the sky, and clouds, and rain or mist or something. Maybe there would be a few more unique ones, but people are a lot less creative in art school than you would think. For instance, another one of the topics was 'a photographer', and I knew that everyone was going to take a picture of themselves with the camera in a mirror or something. We get into class today, and yup, at least half the class has done this. I took a set of shots of the New England School of Photography in Boston, figuring there were photographers in there somewhere and it would be marginally less lame, but you see my point.

Anyways, I knew I was going to be back in Boston for spring break, and I had an idea for 'something in the air'. An idea that I was fairly dead certain no one else was going to have. Something that very definitely is in the air in Boston in February and early March.

You don't even have to guess it, do you?


Or, more concretely, Fenway.

I like this one, it's a very Fenway scene, but not one you usually see or think of when you think of Fenway.

Trying to tie in the 'in the air' theme a little more securely for the dense among my classmates. I'm going to have to end up explaining it anyways, but hey, I try.

Pretty self-explanatory. Red and white and blue may be Red Sox colors, but red and green are Fenway colors.

Look at... the use... of negative space... *grinding teeth to get the horror of the painful artsy explanation that must be unleashed upon the university out*

Because I'm a complete and utter sucker for architecture.

Just a fun shot. Faith! And sky! And lights that look like the legs of a giant bug about to emerge over the edge and consume us all!

Image hosted by
More lights, and sky, and hoping in vain that people won't look at it in class and say, "Waaait, what topic is that supposed to be? I don't get it..."

Image hosted by
Red Sox baseball, baby. It's in the air.

Here are a few more examples of shots for some of the other topics for this assignment (because I know you all care so very deeply).

Topic: 5:00 pm. Uh, it's somewhere in Boston. Somewhere down around the Boston Commons. You know.

Image hosted by
Topic: someone who looks cold. Well, he does, doesn't he?

Topic: your front door. Seriously, you all would laugh if you saw the sheer volume of crap I have taped to my door.

Not part of the project, but I figure I should have something in here for the Detroit fans in the audience. Remember this, guys? Remember when we used to go here and, like, watch games or something? Wasn't that wild?

As should be painfully obvious from this, I'm not a photographer. I'm not a photography major, and I have no desire whatsoever to be one. I heap scorn upon the photography majors, or at least the large number of them who are majoring in photography only because they are too inept to actually have anything remotely resembling draftsmanship skills. I knew exactly one quality photography student, and he was a sports photographer for various U of M teams, and he graduated last year. So, pointless mini-rant. Sorry.

Oh, yeah, and I keep forgetting about this:

Sorry to cruelly disillusion anyone who hasn't seen a photo of me and harbored some imaginary image of me as a lovely nymph of female sports blogging, but such is life. If you're anywhere near the Ann Arbor area, make sure to stop by the WORK Gallery on State Street. There's a digital art exhibition there right now (through March 20), and you see that cruddy-looking tiger? Yup. All me. In the gallery. Go see go see go see. It's actually a hilarious exhibit, they couldn't get anyone to submit anything, so the place is mostly empty.

Actually, once you've seen that catch a University bus (free) up to North Campus and get off at Pierpont Commons to get to the art school. The Slusser Gallery is on the first floor. There's an exhibition in there right now that's actually worth taking a look at. Some seriously cool stuff in there. Real art. Not wonky undergraduate Maya models.

And on a final note, I got home for spring break and what should I immediately see upon entering my bedroom for the first time in however many countless days?

New hat. New hat of AWESOMENESS. It is true, kids. My mom rocks.
