“Elephants love reunions. They recognize one another after years and years of separation and greet each other with wild, boisterous joy. There's bellowing and trumpeting, ear flapping and rubbing. Trunks entwine.”

I just discovered +Stephen Nolan. Or rather, he found me. And I'm so glad. He has some really great paintings and mixed media work. I especially love his use of the gif for subliminal messages. ;-)  Go check him out.

Well that might be a bit much, but sounds fun nonetheless. Perhaps drying time gives you ample time away from it so you come back with fresh eyes. :)

Time for +Blast From The Past!

It's also National Sibling Day, so they say. So here is my brother and moi. We were in my grandparents' kitchen. I can never forget that wallpaper! 

And no, I was not suffering from whiplash. :P

This is gonna be so much fun! It's free. It's huge. It's perfect for this month's Black & White Portrait contest.

I will narrow down a time and meeting place as we get closer, but mark your calendars for April 27th. 

Come alone, bring the family, whatever gets you there. We're going to have so much fun!!

I happen to own the Think Tank Retrospective bag that is this month's 1st place prize, and YOU. WANT. IT. I don't get anything for saying that. I just really love that bag.


Drink and Click™ is simple:  We meet at a venue to have a drink (alcohol not required), talk about Photography, laugh and have fun together. Then we move to another venue, take pictures in between… and repeat until the night is over! We have photography challenges every month with prizes. Join us! 

The monthly contest theme is Black & White Portraiture.
Info here.
Be sure to read the rules to make sure you qualify!

This month's prizes brought to you by our awesome sponsors:
1st Place +Think Tank Photo Retrospective® 40 (Blue) $220 Value
2nd Place +ViewBug - Photo Contests - Photo Contests  one year subscription $60 Value
3rd Place  PanAm Passport Cover $20 Value
So come join us! Anyone is welcome. Any camera, any level. Of course, no drinking is ever required. :)

Artist. I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.
  • I'm an artist working mostly with digital (photography, video, etc), but I'm known to paint on occasion (when I want to throw the computer out the window).
  • More formally...  Christi Nielsen is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, and new media. Her work using mobile devices was shown at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Contemporary, and at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. Nielsen directs inter.sect Art Collective, a group of artists who explore new media and digital exhibition spaces.
  • I'm playing around with a new camera and new lenses, so you'll probably see some experimental work from me. I also post images from travels and the like. And then there's the ...ahem "serious" artwork. ;-) I have it organized in different albums if you're interested.
  • And then there's sass. Gotta have that. I decided there is only so much crazy I can take before I have to start blogging about it. Delusions of Grandeur
