Well… I suppose this is it.  We’ve just finished our final exam with Chuck.  This has been a complete disaster of a week but I think I did fine on the exam.
This concludes my final class with Chuck Egerton and I feel kind of weird about the whole thing.  We’ve still got the group critique for the joint project today and one more class with James.  Then I’ll have something interesting to show.

And is today the 40th anniversary of the moon landing?  I heard it on NPR this morning and I’m not sure if I misheard it.

Today, our final Chuck Egerton assignment will be turned in.  I’m feeling oddly nostalgic and quite strange.  Assignment 4 is to create an “iconic” image that represents our photography.  I’d been playing around with a business name that I actually kind of like and wanted to create an image based on that name.  So without furthur ado- my iconic image.

And finally, the business card.

Squared Business CardSince it is a composite shot (I was foolishly working with hot lights… never again) there is no static exposure value.  I still really love this shot.

Well, seeing as how I accidently uploaded this title and https://holmphotography.wordpress.com/2009/02/02/engrish is now unavailable for usage by the rest of the world, I suppose I should make some good use of it.

 

No holy rubbish allowed.

Yeah, I didn’t take the photo… I needed a good laugh and engrish.com always provides.  I will have to get some pictures from stuff I find at the Super G in Greensboro.  I love that place.

So… pretty much everyone I know is aware that I’m getting surgery soon… and that it was happening in lieu of my first internship.  My knee surgery (surgeries?) has finally been fully and officially scheduled.  My manager, Stephanie, has been ridiculously supportive (even though I’ll be out a chunk of Christmas) and has been more than ready to help me out.  Reed Group, the intermediary between my job at Cost Plus World Market Corporate and myself and my surgeon, has given me the go ahead, stating in a very quick, less-than-five-minute conversation that I fulfilled all the requirements for protected leave… I may even get some of my paycheck while I’m otherwise incapacitated.

I scheduled for October 24 so my mother would be home to help take care of me during my recovery and… well, now that it’s so close on the horizon, I really want to postpone it as much as possible.  I really wish I didn’t have to do this.  On October 24, I’m going under for the third time in my 25 years of life to treat a problem that will, in all actuality, probably never be fixed.

So this is my post at midnight on September 24.  I’m conflicted.
