Amber: 'minimize potential threats.'

Ben: He was there, scurrying only a bit and then freezing as I drew closer. I brought down a low hanging limb with leaves as green as he, set it to where he could grab hold, and so he'd feel less anxious by my presence. "Here. Take it," I said. He did, too. "There you go," I said. "Better, right?" I asked. He never replied, though--it was all the same, and I brought the branch slowly back to it's place and then watched as he blended with it and everything else that I knew he called, "home."

Amber: 'got to find a reason'

Ben: I saw the fading of a heart scrawled upon the backside of a door, shaded by buildings above and thrown from most knowledge, hidden in an alley and facing a dilapidated structure of weathered bricks; and it was sad as hell to think, to know, to many it does not exist.

Morgan: Alfred Stieglitz.

Rachel: Becca creating 'Jenny.'

Amber: sometimes I automatically type my pass words, not sometimes all the time.

Ben: While traversing aisle to aisle, pontification upon various subjects, ideas, and concepts I stopped, tied the shoe that had come untied and found him; and it was he who seemed the most alone.

Morgan: Continuing to pack our apartment even though it was a miserable 88 degrees inside our rooms.

Rachel: Spinning around in my desk chair waiting for my laundry to dry.

Rachel: Virginia Beach. Can you say crowded?

Amber: Bike ride start to 40 miles.

Ben: Many times a day I think, "much of what is around is only strewn, stapled, glued, and pasted together in misshapen, asymmetrical, confused mosaics of oddity," and then further more, most things around reflect the same and I feel validated.

Morgan: Pictorialism.

Rachel: Arby's: Roastburger construction on backline.

Amber: busy working for the VCU Summer Art Intensive.

Amber: Cali. falling down.

Ben: It's interesting, truly, usually I am not exclusively verbose, and can expound upon most things, but, this, this left me speechless.

Morgan: Composite Photography in the 19th Century.

Rachel: Arbys; With Evan's help, I was able to sneak out of the restaraunt for a second to photograph the radio station setup in our parking lot. Today was "Relief from the heat" day with Mix 103.7 and Arby's.

Amber: Done with that.

Ben: No matter day or time, there is always enough for creep visual engagement.

Morgan: Photographing the 19th Century Landscape.

Rachel: Arbys; This is another one of our regulars: Raymond. He's the nicest guy-comes in almost everyday for salad or a fish sandwich, and knows all the employees by name. And since he checks this website, I'll take this opportunity to say "Hey Raymond!"

Amber: so bright.

Ben: I wondered, "why'd the swine cross the road?" and then knew, obviously: he had the rite of way.

Morgan: Photography during the American Civil War.

Me: "Ma'am... I know this is a strange request... but would you mind if I took your picture?"
Employee: "Umm.. why?"
Me: "Well, I'm a photography student and take one photo every day at the same time to document my year."
Employee: "Oh wow!! Okay! Let me take my glasses off... okay I'm ready!! Sexy Marshall's employee on aisle fourrrrrr!!"
(She yelled that... and attracted attention... no joke.)
