This photo is part of my Inspired By Song Lyrics series. It's inspired by the song "Angels" by American Bang.
"She lies in the bed wishing she was there at the show"
It's got a Country twang to it, but it's considered Rock. Which I hate because I can't stand Country. I just like the lyrics. You can listen here.
This is a set list from when I saw Crossfade on August 23rd. Signed by Ed Sloan (lead vocals), Les Hall...aka 537 (guitar), Mitch James (bass/backing vocals) and Mark Castillo (drummer)
One of my favorite books Story Of A Girl by Sara Zarr
This photo is inspired by "Heart Like A Kingdom" by Boom The Wheel.
"Use your outside voice; remove the tape from your mouth"
This is a bench in Little Rock. I had been wanting to photograph it for a long time, but couldn't ever find it. The Love Bench is very popular subject amoung Arkansas photographers. I finally found it. I got a comment by a user on Flickr asking where this was. Glad to know I wasn't the only one how had trouble finding it.
A blueberry poptart (I hate this picture...I was lacking inpiratuon.)
Coffee from Baskin Robbins. I also hate this photo, was still lacking inspiration.
I dyed my hair purple on this day. (Just bangs and some streaks.) inspired by "Purple" by Pop Evil (they're talking about a tattoo; but whatever, purple hair...purple tattoo; close enough.
A full picture of the Villa Marre.
This is the day I got a new lens (28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM) I love it! It is pretty much the only lens I have used since I bought it.
I went to see Hawthorne Heights, this is James Prather, he is a member of ViFolly. (If you click their name you will be taken to their Facebook page where you can listen to their awesome music.) They opened for Hawthorne Heights. They are now one of my favorite bands. I really like how well this new lens works for shows. This is one of my favorite show shots I have taken...ever.

My little Doodlebug had to get glasses.
Her little feet.
I broke these sunglasses a few days ago. I had them for atleast a year and a half. (That is a record for me, normally I have them for about a day before they get lost or broken.) I'm pretty sad, they were my favorite.
This is a robot necklace I got from Forever 21. Haven't worn it yet, the chain is way too long.
On this day I went to see 10 Years. A local band opened for them. Blind Mary. I had seen Blind Mary once with Crossfade, they are really good. One of my favorite photos of the night.
Jesse Hasek (10 Years)
In 2005 I went to the Wal-Mart Shareholders meeting, Shakira, Jesse McCartney and Jimmy Buffett performed. After the show I met Jimmy and he gave me this pick.
I bought a puppy. He is a Sheltie. Four months old. His name is Eddie.
We raise chickens they are now laying white, brown and blue-green eggs.
Eddie is not a fan of the leash.
10 Years set list and pick.
I finally bought a pair of yellow Converse. I have been wanting them for a long time. I also got purple and a pair of red.
I saw Aranda open for Hinder. I love this picture Gabe is holding the guitar for his brother Dameon so he can play it using his boot. This was my fourth time to see these guys. Love them! Every show I try to get a shot of this happening and up until now it has always failed. I just wish I would have been zoomed out a little more so Dameon's boot could be seen better.
Austin Winkler and Joe Garvey of Hinder.
This was the day Steve Jobs died. I am so thankful for everything he created. Not a day goes by that I don't use my iPhone or iPod. This song has nothing to do with that...I bought ticket to see Pop Evil that day. The show is on Tuesday. I am so excited. I haven't seen them since the first time I saw Crossfade in June.
Swing in my parents backyard.
This is either a Cavo or Theory Of A Deadman pick, I can't remember which.
You might remember these guys from day 5.
Mom's cat Joplin (named after Missouri.)
Eddie has been playing with the chickens.
Jance of Boom The Wheel.
Wesley of Belair.
Doodlebug eating a Halloween cupcake. Well, actually she just licks the frosting off and throws the cake away. :)
This is pretty much picture overload probably. I just wanted to get caught up. I'll post more tomorrow. Really...I will...I'm even going to set Blogger as my homepage so I don't forget. I will try my hardest to never get this far behind again.
