Welcome to the Dark Room...
Please be sure to leave the red lights on, only turn on the ambers if no developing is in process, and don't turn on the white lights!!
I just decided to make a place for my photography! Including most of the manips and such. Just because I haven't seen any place for photography on here and I'm a sucker for photography =3
Most of the pictures you will find on here were taken by myself and I hope that you will be curtious and not steal my work. Some of the photo's of myself were taken by friends and family then manipulated by me, I will give credit where it is due.
Things to note:
-The topics governing each picture are mainly for multiple files, what I'm saying is that pictures such as "Our Town" might have multiple pictures to go with that topic, so if I submit a second picture of Kaysville's scenery, then it will be under the same topic and will not delve into a specific description.
-The "Image Copyright" at the bottom of each post is in correlation with who actually snapped the photo, the only ones on here you will see without my name on them are the ones of myself that I did not take, I will not submit other's photo's unless they have myself specificaly in the picture.

This is our town
...I welcome you to the suburbs of K-town.
Location: Kaysville, Utah
Time: 7:15 am, May
When deciding what photograph to show you first, I figured this would be appropriate, just so you have an idea of where I live and how it looks.
There are alot of reason why I like this picture, it was so simple and not hugely detailed with tons of things that were needed to look over, you can look at it and tell what it is, its the fact that you can do that and it causes you to look closer, take in the details that are un-noticeable at first glance.
I think it catches the eye and also has a serenity to it that's too often missed out on in the city. But even in K-town, the city is small and close knit, it's a pretty old city and still preserves many of the old buildings, like our library, the theater and other such things.
I live in a mixed area, alot of modern, but still not loosing the effect of a quaint, quiet little town shielded off from the rest of the worldly things that can clutter a mind.
If you, for some strange and un-nameable reason, feel like taking a vacation to Utah (which doesn't happen often xD were not exactly a tourist state), I highly recomend visiting Kaysville, just to look up on it's history, it's so beautiful even though it's small, it reminds me of a Radiator Springs on mild steriods, it isn't small with nobody living there, but it's a moderatly small town with many people and if you've lived here your life, it's hard not to know almost everybody.
The downside of Kaysville (and the surrounding area's) is that the teenager population is rather overrun with cliques, and it has other downsides, but if you can handle that, you'll see that Kaysville is a wonderful break from the world, even though you might call it sheltered, and your right but sometimes it's nice to feel a breeze.
And if you're feeling particularly daring, you can always venture down to Kays Cross, the home of Kaysvilles biggest secret, most famous ghost story and (to some) it's biggest embarrasement...naturally, everyone knows.
Faults: I took this in my car while driving to school, so the quality is lacking some and I'm sorry the file is rather big, I'll shrink it once I get the time.
So since I took it in the car, you can see some reflections on the mirror in the corners and some strange little spots, some are from the rain and others are just that my car is dirty xD.

A link between the lesser traveled roads...
Only a short distance from my house, Thornfield is the only road (besides the highway) linking two very well known, yet too often skipped roads, so naturally, this road goes unoticed by most.
I love this road, I just love walking down the streets under the cover of the shady and startlingly green trees. This road is kindof the road of life for most families, there are several small neighborhoods that are just off of this road and many just end into a forest of trees, the elementary school (of which I also have a picture of) also resides on this road.
The first photo in "Our Town" series was this road, but I decided to have that as the main picture. =\
This picture is obviously early morning, this was also taken on the way to school when I had to go to a study session for a test. The quiet empty road is so calm in the mornings, and, unlike some empty roads, it doesn't ever feel like a ghost town, it just looks like it's residents...like it's asleep.
I love how when you first see this picture, it's also pretty simple, but then suddenly, you see a puddle of water in the middle of the road, and that causes your eye to notice the white picket fence and suddenly, the small yellow house appears almost out of nowhere.
There are alot of old style houses and alot of new houses on this road, I'll perhaps take pictures of them later.
A little too dark, but when I tried to lighten it on ACD-See, it looked like the flash had shone off my window and it looked hideous, so I left it dark =P

Nice town...wow, it's all green. Much better than the desert wasteland I call home.
lol, surprisingly Utah is a desert, hotter than hades here in summer xD, this is deffinately a more greener part, but if you head down to Lake Powell, nothing but long streatches of sand, spotted with red rock formations and an occasional sagebrush or tumbleweed xD
