my san francisco bedroom!

Is it weird to post photos of my bedroom on the internet? hmmmm.....probably- but its also photography related so i'm gonna go for it! im really happy with some prints i had blown up and framed from my visit to San Francisco this fall so I wanted to share them. My bedroom already had a SF vibe going with the collage i made for over the bed, so i thought these prints would be a fun addition

Im not big into theme decorating - definitely im more eclectic- but this kinda worked as a happy accident that everything in here is now san francisco - anyway- here are the two biggest prints, one is a dilapidated building on Alcatraz and one of a cable car
Here's a close up of the art over the bed- i bought a wood board at a hardware store- spray painted it green and mounted on some funky old vintage SF postcards that i found at a bookstore- this I did years ago but still like it!
And the biggest wall (straight across from the bed) has 6 closely hung colorful prints of different parts of the city- Tada!

griffey's glamour session

griff told me he was feeling pretty today so we decided to take some glamour shots!

he started with a classic- the old "one ear flipped inside out" and he nailed it!

inspired by rubenesque paintings- griffey strikes a posehere griffey told me he was going for that whole egyptian sphinx look!

griff has perfected a demure gaze where he flirts with the camera and shows off his big brown eyes!
doing his best impression of a zebra
demonstrating his hunting prowess -griffey stands at point
i told griff nobody looks good from this angle but he insisted we get some shots

sometimes he gets a little self conscience of his schnoze- so we tried to downplay it here

but in this shot he decided he should try and work with it instead of hiding it

and for the last look- another classic, the limp paw and flirty pout- flawless!

The Graduate!

okay- i realize this isn't the best photo ever but i just had to share it. pete took it on his cell phone tonight cause it was griffey's graduation from puppy school. Griff got to wear his little graduation hat with the tastle and all and he even got a diploma- too funny- but first he had a final where he showed off all his skills... come, sit, stay, leave it, drop it, shake, high five, roll over- and he passed with flying colors....we are too proud!

stopping by the woods on a snowy evening

jack and griffey sprint ahead down the trail

yes- i borrowed my title from robert frost but it seemed so fitting!
this is a great trail in a state park around my parents lake house

last year my dad and i got lost while cross country skiing here and ended going straight up this huge dune on our skis- it was not fun

and going downhill on a narrow steep path on cross country skis- well- it was not pretty!
but- i love this park- especially in the snow! happy new year everyone!
