Here in New Mexico: Part II
Saturday, Jan 13, 2007 from Albuquerque, New Mexico
Now on to the photos. I’ve become much more critical of my photography on this trip. And to edit the thousands of photos down to what’s on the site is such a task. “Should I use the one from the right or the left? The black and white shot or the color? Which shot is composed better? Detail shot or broad shot?” Hence, I usually just put them all up. Ha ha, not really. This summer as I prepared for my trip the first book I bought after graduating was another textbook, on photojournalism. I studied it with a passion all summer. I’ve improved and can see how I’m using some of that knowledge when I take photos now. Ok, ok, just a few more thoughts. I’ve mentioned this before, but my brain. Now my brain is pretty basic, the biggest addition it can handle is only in the number range of 1-9. Alright, that’s a lie, I used to want to major in math. Anyways, too much rambling, this is what happens when I get no sleep and become delirious. What I’m fascinated by on this trip is the amount of information. Quite honest as long as I’m awake and going at it this trip is like a 24⁄7 lecture full of new information trying to squeeze as much into my memory as possible. Never have in my life have I experienced such constant intake of information at such a rapid pace and for over four months straight now! One of these days I’ll have to go back and get a degree in psychology and learn more about how the brain actually functions. One of the best classes I ever had was cognitive psychology. Ok, ok, this is my one and last final thought…
How many toes do you have? I’ve asked this to many people and they have laughed me off. But c’mon, honestly, how many friends do you have where you HONESTLY don’t KNOW how many toes they have and you just always ASSUME they have ten toes. You never know!

I have the usual number of toes, but if I didn't... it would be the first thing I tell strangers... "Hi, I have three toes!" We assume a lot about people in general, I think.
