At the Park with Great Grandpa

"Second chances, they don't ever matter [people never change]. What's a whore, you're nothing more; I'm sorry, that will never change... and about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged. I"m sorry honey, but I passed that up [now look this way]." -Paramore

... and I.

The Satyricon

"Write it down. Scratch the nice... because I can't just keep coming back. You put my picture in a box, it was the one inside your locket. What happened to the keys that used to jingle in your pocket? Your fingers say to come, but your eyes say I should "stop it." If I regret all I've done; I would be trapped inside that locket." -3OH!3

Photography is classy work.

The Satyricon, PDX

The Oregon Gypsy Queens hosted a benefit to support Transitions Global; a non-profit organization that empowers survivors of sex trafficking.

The Dicers were FABULOUS...

Some of my favorite sexy ladies!

... it was a LONG night. I was so grateful for the moments of "silly," that prompted mini-impromptu photoshoots...

... and ridiculously random stickers/signs.

[me pouting, because I knew I would be unable to return for The Honorary Title show]
*Listen to the song "Everything I Once Had"

I did not take this photo [it was pilfered]. However, for those of you that were there; and for the rest that "heard" ... HAHA I couldn't, in good conscience, bear to leave out at least some reference.

Of Blood and Beauty

"It's not like you didn't know that; I said, "I love you," and I swear I still do. It must have been so bad... Living with me must have damn near killed you. This is how you remind me, of what I really am. It's not like you to say "sorry." I was waiting on a different story. This time I'm mistaken, for handing you a heart worth breaking." -Nickleback

The Roller Derby Art Show
Art inspired by Roller Derby and the Cherry City Derby Girls.

My submission was displayed at Venti's Cafe, and auctioned for $55.

I fell in LOVE with these decorative star lights.

Brando is Missing
This was taken merely hours before he ran off.
The missing dog report filed through the Marion County Dog Shelter.

[sigh] Sad day.

Alliance WakeSkate

"Remember all the things we wanted; now all our memories they're haunted [we were always meant to say goodbye]. Even with our fists held high, it never would've worked out right: We were never meant for "do or die." I didn't want us to burn out; I didn't come here to hold you [now I can't stop]... Started with a perfect kiss, then we could feel the poison set in [perfect couldn't keep this love alive]." -Kelly Clarkson

Oregon Trail Trash Productions
Zak Stone of OTT Productions, has invited me out to the Salem Yacht and Boat Club [SYBC] on numerous occasions, to shoot wake-skate. A photo from our July / holiday weekend session was actually published on alliancewakeskate.com. While this is clearly "old news," I only figured out [today] how to do a screen capture on my Mac. Yay! for technology and learning!

Like Mother, Like Son

Sharon and Brandon
A day spent on the [fabulous] Oregon Coast.

"There's a hole in the trust, that we mapped out in my bed [for six long months] I won't hold onto this. Anyone is suitable for you I guess, tonight. You weren't fazed... It's over with, you, my beautiful." -The Honorary Title

I Love my Derby Wife

"Every night I rush to my bed, with hopes that I might get the chance to see you. When I close my eyes, I'm going out of my head. Lost in a fairy-tale; can you hold my hands and be my guide? Clouds filled with stars cover your skies, and I hope it rains [you're the perfect lullaby]... What kind of dream is this? You could be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare: Either way, I don't want to wake up from you." -Beyonce

Miki Carter

A FAIR Fight? Yeah Right!

"There's a world we've never seen: There's still hope in between the dreams. The weight of it all, could blow away with a breeze... If you're waiting on the wind, don't forget to breathe [cause the darkness gets deeper] and we'll be sinking as we reach for love; at least something we could hold. I'll reach for you, from where time just can't go." -Jack Johnson
