I joined some friends for a 'happy hour' event at their house. It was a great end to the week for everyone to just unwind and hang out. Someone pulled out an iPhone and showed off a photo I had put together from a Christmas card shoot last week. Hillarity ensued. I had about 25 winning shots from our frantic sunset shoot, and I pulled everyone's individual 'worst of' photos and put them into one really gay photo. For the record, I have nothing against gaydom and I, along with pretty much everyone I know, thinks this is funny. If you are offended this blog ain't for you! I guess I spent an hour on it, which is never too much time for a laugh. Reaction, or impact, of any type, is a personal goal with my photography.
This photo however, isn't what this blog entry is about, but I refuse to post an entry to my photography blog without a photo, so there it is. 'Happy hour' came to an end and eventually our hosts kicked us out because, like normal people, they wanted to enjoy their Saturday. 5 of us went to grab some dinner and then we proceeded to someone's birthday party.
I ended up in a conversation with two guys debating politics. I hate politics, but ever since the recent 'most important election of all time', I do find some aspects fascinating. What was quite un-fascinating was that one guy, who just so happened to have really long dreadlocks, dropped a couple verbal bombs on McCain, praised Obama, and then proceeded to tell me that he did not vote. I asked him, "why did you not vote"? He replied that he was too lazy and just didn't. I promptly gazed into his eyes searching for something, but got nothing. He was serious. I told him, "I'm done here, I'm going home. You are not allowed to talk about politics if you didn't vote."
