The Paper Update…

Done so far today:
– Submission of scholarship form and the “Why I want to be a Pharmacist when I grow up” essay. (Cheese. Pure cheese.)

– Paper that I forgot about on the seminar I attended about saving the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle. Doing my part to help bring them back to the Galveston beaches. (If you see one down there, or you spot turtle tracks, call 866-Turtle5 right away.)

– Paper on the Solarization technique, aka the Sabatier Effect, for photography. One of my favorite things to do in the photography darkroom when I took the course back in high school, the effects this technique produces are really cool.

Still to do tonight:
– Powerpoint Presentation to go with the outline created for our X-Ray Crystallography presentation on Friday. Mike, the resident Powerpoint guru, has promised his assistance on this project. (I wrote the outline, all we are doing now is transferring pieces to slides.) UPDATE: Initial draft done; will need more editing tomorrow.

Still to do, but probably not tonight:
– Paper on a famous photographer. Considering Man Ray, as I just read a lot about him because he helped make the solarization technique famous. Willing to consider others (but not Ansel Adams) if you have suggestions. My teacher can only read so many papers on Ansel Adams in one semester.

– Beginning of research on the reproductive systems of vertebrates for Biology presentation due next Tuesday.

Today was also officially our last lecture day in Chemistry II. We will do labs on Wednesday, a test next Monday, and that is it before the final. No more classes as we have a Wednesday off. Wow. I think the Photography darkroom closes this week also. But in Biology II, I think we are having lectures up to the last possible second, and then a practical, a test, and the final.

I’m beginning to feel a bit drained of creativity, losing all of my knowledge power, and finals are coming up fast and furious. Somebody hold me.

there are always the “parisians” like Cartier Bresson and Doisineau (plus one more that l’Hotel de Ville had an exhibt from earlier this year (see Chocolate and Zucchini for better info around Xmas time) who was lovely too…

and good on you for that kind of list!

wow… you’re keeping yourself busy! I haven’t even begun to study for my final in two weeks. I ought to though, right?

Also, I put in a few pointers on the crayon image you liked. Hopefully it might help you out. 🙂

It’s weeks like this I don’t envy you being in school. For portraiture I always loved Richard Avedon. I was struck dumb when he and his entourage came into a little diner I used to work at in Fredericksburg. I wouldn’t even approach the table with a coffee pot. Nobody I worked with had any idea who he was. And then of course there is Annie Leibovitz. I guess I am taken with photographers who can capture the essence of personalities.

I miss writing papers. I loved writing them as they came so easy to me. Now, I write for a living, and I long for the days of research papers. My latest project is already over 150 pages long, and it’s not even half finished yet.

Hoo boy – that’s a lot on your plate! I don’t miss school one bit!!!

Thanks for you comment on my blog about my Trekking Jaywalkers! we trekkers have to stick together – great yarn!

Also, I’m new to the podcast, but have been loving it! You are one busy gal!!!

Unfortunately, I don’t think Noah Grey is considered famous enough for this project – I have to have 5 sources, with a max of 3 from the Internet. I’ve followed Noah’s site for years (I was even a Greymatter user!) so it would be easy to write, just not enough resources.

I considered Loretta Lux, but her photos freak me out a little. I may just have to go the lazy way and find someone that is mentioned in at least 2 of the books I have here at the house (I don’t have time to drive to the library) so that probably limits my options. 🙂
