You all know about The Zadge’s Top Secret Day Job.
Well, actually, you don’t know anything about it, cuz it’s top secret! But I assume you know that the Top Secret Day Job pays the bills. Which, by the way, have been quite significant since the evil Mr. Tumor tried to take on The Shone in mortal battle.
Well, take THAT you lame-ass troll, The Shone is kicking your evil ass! Go back to the dark, stanky cancer hole you crawled out of and don’t come back!
The Zadge needs the Top Secret Day Job because it helps her fend off evil.
Well, it also pays for the fun trips that The Zadge likes to take. And the massive renovations to her Baby Jesus of Bethlehem Am I Old As Hell Victorian home. And the good food and booze that she likes to, uh, sample. And the ambitionally-challenged cute young foreign slacker that she hooks up with in a tequila-haze in Mexico. Oh, wait, no. The Top Secret Day Job gives her the cahones to drop kick the sad puppy out of her house in under 36 hours of his arrival!
In any event, The Zadge needs the Top Secret Day Job for a whole host of reasons. Plus, more days than not, she likes it. And it provides good cocktail party stories.
But The Zadge really likes photography. And she has been messing around with cameras for over a decade now. She even started a little portrait biz on the side of the Top Secret Day Job, more to keep photography alive in her life as opposed to making any money.
Cuz The Zadge certainly would be one hungry and thirsty photographer if she tried to chuck the TSDJ completely!
But now The Zadge wants to focus on the fine-art side of photography. Which means working on a long-term project of images that may one day see the light of a gallery’s walls, or a book, or some other medium. Hence, the trip to Santa Fe to study with the fabulous Keith Carter.
So now I’m in the fetal stages of developing a project. The project idea is actually a play on the name of this blog: it’s tentatively called “Western Skies.” It may or may not also include images of “yellow dogs” – you know who they are! But I’m a little worried that the dogs may muddy up the idea. So far, my project includes some of the images I posted here as well as some newer images of Denver:
|Colorado State Capitol|
|Coors Field Baseball Stadium|
Any critique and/or suggestions you have for The Zadge’s Project would be greatly appreciated. And be honest – I’m a tough girl. I can take it.
After all, I was right by The Shone’s side helping him battle Mr. Tumor!
