portfolio of a wasted vacation

um, is it really sunday night? sunday night the last night of thanksgiving vacation? what happened to that enormous expanse of time i thought i'd have to organize my dust collection and catch up on homework and write overdue thank you notes and visit with neglected loved ones and and and....?

instead of doing any of that, i've tinkered around laboriously on my two-years-in-the-making christmas gift project. oh my god, if this thing ever succeeds, it's going to be colossal! i've mentioned this before. if i can't finish this year, i will indeed hang my head in shame. what a waste of this time it would be! i mean really, i haven't even finished my homework! oh, but i did bring greenpoint to eddie and maria in the form of an insanely deliscious pierogi dinner. because yesterday was maria's due date. and little diana hadn't yet made her appearance....

so i'm supposed to be putting a portfolio together for my 'business practices of professional photographers' class. and all semester long every one of our guest lectures in the field insisted our portfolios must be consistent. except mine is all, hi, here are some portraits...
um and here are some landscapes...

oh, and while we're at it, how about some mundane life details?

Does this mean you're not doing Christmas cards? Can't wait to see your awesome project though, I bet it will be amazing! And love the shots for your portfolio. They're unique, just like you. :)

p.s. I'm back up. Blogger decided to work for me again.
