The "Funky Church" which is actually a house. Can't even call it a house, because different parts of the building are rented out as separate living spaces. It's also where I got my free race car red bed!

There is no story behind this. But it might be my favorite photo day so far.

The beginning of the Beginning

My name is Austin. I work at Bullseye Glass Co:


-I work with David Cross. Or his twin.
-We listen to reggae covers of Dark Side of the Moon.
-I wear "gauntlets" at work.


This job is going to kick ass. Or my ass...I'm in the warehouse. Building stuff. Packing stuff. Lifting heavy stuff. Moving stuff.


It's awesome.

Lots and lots of artwork in the most unlikely places. This one is near my favorite burger place in Portland.

A girl I was training with at Retail Imaging Management Group, LLC revealed to us that her and her boyfriend brew their own beer. So she gave a few of us our very own bottle! Once I find a deli that has pre-made burger patties with fancy stuff in it, I'll be cracking this thing open, you betcha.

There are a lot of lazy people in Portland. My favorite part of this is either the cat or the Volkswagen. I haven't decided yet.

Apparently this is a hip intersection in Portland. 26th and Clinton? Ever heard of it? I haven't. But my house is on the block adjacent to camera right of this building. Dot's is a neat little dive, though, with free pool!

Riding a bike through a neighborhood in this city provides more interesting things to photograph than you'd expect. I gotta remember to photograph someone in front of this place.

Okay, I'm all caught up! Now I need to figure out how to post-date entries for when I'm out of town. Any blogger.com'ers have any ideas?

Seen at an antique store. There was also a light box in one of the displays by the register with slide transparencies of 60's and 70's porn. I'm tempted to buy them and make clever, censored posters from them. It'll be grand.

The dates don't quite match yet, I've had to do some catching up since the new year began. But I will definitely be on time by Friday!
