Cash For Clunkers

I decided (thanks to my dad for the idea :)  to do a sort of photo essay on this whole cash for clunkers program going on right now. This was back when I was at home, so it was the Sheehy Ford dealer there. It's taken me until now to post them haha. It's hard narrowing it down!

So anyway, there were all these clunkers just lined up in the parking lot hood to trunk, as tight as they could...pretty close to their new cars--a sad comparison. Most were so close they were touching tail light to bumper. They were distinctly marked with C4C or CL, DO NOT SELL. I tried to capture the irony of it, that each of these cars has such a story behind them based on what was left behind; stickers, the condition of the car, the's all so representative of their owners as well as the whole nature of the program. The best part to me, as you'll see, is how quickly they were abandoned, to the point where clunkers is spelled wrong, and people started coming up with creative ways to abbreviate the program's name.

 So as always, let me know what you think :)

R.I.P. Max

A week ago Monday, I had to put my other chihuahua, Max, to sleep. He was 10 years old and was diagnosed with Lymphoma. He was the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. It's taken me a while to muster up the courage to post this, but he deserves it. Life is crazy right now and I don't want him to think I've forgotten about him. It still hurts that he's gone, but here's my tribute to a wonderful, loving dog. 

Some of you might remember Mitzie. She knows he's gone too, but we make sure she gets the love she deserves. 

Love you Max, see you in Heaven.

Some of my recent assignments

So, I can't believe it...I have only 3 DAYS left at my internship!!! (I only go in on Mondays and Thursdays, and I go back to school in about 2 weeks...) So ridiculous. I have no clue where this summer went. 
Anyhoo, here are some recent shots I took for an article they did on this place called Gallery 5, pretty neat place. The first ones of the chandeliers is from another art gallery.  They're made from bike wheels!! how cool is that?? 
The other shots are from Gallery 5's gift shop, all hand made things. I only posted a few shots, but it was very cool.

Extreme close up!

And the gift shop:
