butterflies and hurricanes

Me Myself and Eye

In order to make this title make sense, I am currently sipping a Hurricane whilst I upload these pics from the zoo the other day. This is obviously a fib, given that it is 9am on a Thursday, but go with me on this one. Anyway, this particular title is from one of my favourite Muse songs which concerns itself with chaos theory, with specific emphasis on the Butterfly Effect. As far as I am concerned, far too many musicians have overlooked this area of physics when looking for inspiration for a quick ditty.

For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a link to the song being played live at Wembley in 2007: Butterflies and Hurricanes Live.

I realise it may be a bit too much of a racket for some, but at least hang around for the piano solo at 3:45. It’s so subtly done you have to love it.

Enough blather, here are the pics – see if you can spot the hurricane:

I went for a walk around the grounds of IMA this morning to scout out for a shoot this weekend. There was no one else around except the groundsmen (and a few robins). The sun shone for about 20 minutes before the clouds drew in. It was great to see the spring flowers out in full force. Finally, looks like the winter is on its way out after what seems like years.

After receiving a lot of positive feedback and reviews from my clients, I have realised that it's perhaps time to increase my rates in line with the majority of photographers on the market. As such, if you would like to schedule a session, please do so as soon as possible to lock in the current pricing. Such perks as getting a full DVD of hi-res images as part of the package will no longer be standard past this coming weekend. On a related note, I have put some more definition to my wedding packages and am happy to share those with engaged couples upon request. Anyone sending me a reference will qualify for a special prize (tailored to eac ...

It's been a while since I just went out just shooting random stuff, so after spending the morning working at home, I got to go out and spend some time at the Indianapolis Zoo. My main goal originally was to go and hang out with the butterflies. They have a great selection there, and they are always pretty keen to sit around and pose. Plus the fact they are indoors means there is no wind to deal with, which can be a nightmare if you are trying to shoot macro images. Anyhow, I ventured outside to the gardens (which I had completely forgotten about) and it was a riot of colour. These are some of my fave shots from the day from the gardens. Butte ...
