thanks for being awesome.

Take a look at dem apples! WordPress sent me this little report telling me all the EXCITING things that have happened to my blog. I dunno what to say! Thanks for checking my blog. Thanks for reading my words. Thanks for looking at my photos. Thanks for putting up with my tacky grammar and horrid spelling. Thanks for still checking out my blog even though I don’t post as much. Thanks for the lovely comments. And lastly, thank you for being awesome. You guys made this blog AWESOME. And because I love it so much, I’m gonna continue to post here. Instead of using my other website. Yeah, I love you guys.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,200 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

pictures to burn

So, here I am, finally getting to upload some pictures. One of the days I took a bunch of super good photographs so I decided to make some of the other days, photos from that day. Make sense? I always do. Lets start:

 

Day 172- No editing done to this picture. Just left it the way it was. My dad and I stopped my Creekside for dinner on our way up the mountains. This was his jar of water.

 

 

Day 173- This is the original photo. Unedited. I thought in and of itself, it is a fantastic photo, so I thought Photoshop could make it even better!

 

 

And here is the edited version. I dont know what I did but I changed stuff around a bit. Oh and these are the pictures I got when I went on a hike by some friend's house up in Pinetop, AZ.

 

 

Day 174- From the hike. I saw this little flower and then the bug. I just love how the bug stands out with his bright red, yellow, and black body! No editing done to this picture.

 

 

Day 175- From the hike. I love this picture!! This was like an 1/8 of a second exposure, handheld. Unedited version.

 

 

Day 175- From the hike. So I decided to edit it some in Photoshop. It looks so much better now!

 

Day 176- I dont really know what night I took this but I love the sparks flying off and everything. No editing done here.

Day 177- (current day) Today we drove over to Durango, Colorado again. It was cloudy and I thought they looked really cool. No editing done here.

Now Playing on my iPod- Nothing! Im here sitting by a creek in Durango, blogging. So…relaxing…. :)

some change is good

Well I decided that I will change my blog theme. I dunno, I just felt like some change here. I changed the theme to “PressRow.” I like the header and the layout of everything. And that Header (the picture at the top of the site) was taken on my cellular phone!!! Hmmm, isnt it odd how I am SO against cell phone pictures but the past few days my pictures have been taken with my phone?? hmmm…. Oh well!
Hope yall like it! What are your thoughts on it?
Do you like this one or do you want me to go back to the old one? Its up to you!

party poopers!

On this day- Well lets see, today my sister and I traded some music and during that process decided to sing Justin Bieber songs. Then I went to Target and bought stuff!!! (I love stuff) Went to Sonic and got a large vanilla Dr Pepper. Came home and a few minutes later left for a birthday party! Had a bunch of fun there! Now Im home, I smell like shaving cream and pool water, am very tired, and blogging. haha
Day 160- low-light action shots. Yeah, theyre hard to capture cause, you guessed it, low light! But using the flash and high speed flash burst mode, I was able to capture this shot! I think its pretty cool!

Well I think Im going to go to bed. Before my eyes fall out. :P
Tell your friends about my blog!
Nighty night!

a novel idea!

So I have decided to do something, something different. What might that idea be? Well see when I upload a picture, sometimes I put a little description on what I did that day. Well what I ve decided is instead of doing that in the Project Picture’s description, I will make it before I tell about the picture. Make sense? Here’s an example:

This would be the “On This Day…” post. So, blah blah blah blah Blah bLah blAh blaH yack yack yack chitter chatter humdeedum whatnots and ticks tocks and goldie locks with a lot of rocks??? socks!!! yeah, Im a great rhymer!

Day 264382047592874793029171152995058463729230287374728- most people wont like live that long!!! But see, Im immortal!!! Please just pretend you never saw this photo for it is childish and ridiculous. (and yes, I editededed it. Hey, you would try and make yourself look better if you had photoshop!!!)

If you have ever been dying to know what I look like....

And fundametally, thats what it will look like. And see, this is exclusively for my blog!! Yup! Facebook wont get this! But if Im feeling lazy or I just dont feel like telling you how my day went, I wont put it in! So now you will get to see what its like to live in my shoes…kinda…not really…yeah…just read this and tell your friends about my blog, K?

kthanksbye,

Matt :D

Internetless….

Hey Yall,
Well Im gonna be internetless here for a few days. The wifi at this campground is slower then molasses and waiting for an hour for a picture to upload isnt worth it. I’ll still be taking pictures, I just wont upload them for a few days.

Sorry ’bout that!

abandoned bug

Yuppers! Still in Texas. Tomorrow we are leaving for Colorado to cool off.

Day 139- When I saw this…it broke my heart. :( I love old VW’s, in fact I want an old VW bus! In red! With fuzzy dice! But see, I dont see a broken down Bug here, in fact I see the exact opposite of that! I see what the car looked like before it was left to…suffer. I see what the car might look like if someone were to restore it to its former shining glory! I see…potential!

This makes me happy and sad all at once.

Matt :D
