pink lifethis journal is primarily used for showing off my photography, there's very little--if any--actual journaling going on here anymore.

most of my photos are posted to my flickr stream these days. so if you have a flickr account, that's probably the best way to keep up with my photography.

that said...

if you're interested in keeping up with my photography through your livejournal friends page, then feel free to add me--the more the merrier! :-) however, i don't check my "friend count" very often so unless you make an effort to get my attention, i'll probably not add you back. if that's important to you, then getting my attention generally means commenting on photos, asking questions...etc.

if i've added you as a friend out of the blue and you're wondering why or who i am, it's probably because i like your photography and couldn't find you on the flickr.

okay, that's it for now--enjoy!

Edit: November 15, 2009

Since I don't even post many photos on LJ these days, this account has gone somewhat dormant. If you're still interested in keeping up with me, here are some other places on the internet where you can find/connect with/follow/stalk me and my photography.

book: xgray vision 2009

book: xgray vision 2009, originally uploaded by xgray.

XGRAY VISION 2009 is the third installment in a series of year-end retrospectives. What this means is that for the third time I have taken on the daunting task of summarizing an entire year's worth of photography in just a few pages. And for the third time I am not really sure what I was thinking.

In a typical year, I will click the shutter thousands of times. Actually, this year I took over 5000 digital images, plus a couple dozen or so rolls of film--and this was an admittedly "slow year" for photography. This leads to thousands of digital and film images to process. Of those thousands, around 500 were deemed "good enough" for me to share with the public. This book is a further distilling of the process that begins with each shutter click. A process intended to give just a taste of what it is like to see the world through my eyes.

There are more books available for preview/purchase in my Blurb bookstore, including...

XGRAY VISION 2008
XGRAY VISION (2007)
The Blue Book
Chairs

...and more.
