      Since I have had a proper journal, I have traveled to Canada twice, PAX East, OKC, Florida, and somewhere else but that is not important. I will write a better journal soon, right now I am in the middle of editing some photos from RTX 2013 that I didn't pay much time to last year but now I know what to do with them (plus getting my skills back up before RTX 2014). I will post some of the photos soon but for now here is just one. Enjoy

    • A Boy and his Dog

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      I have been debating if I should write this journal for the past few days and I think I have come to a point were I can write it with out getting too upset. So this past holiday was very bittersweet unfortunately my 13 year old dog Sparky had sudden kidney and liver failure and within 2 days lost 4 pounds ( he was a 20lb dog) and we had to put him down on Dec 23. The illness came on him very quickly but thankfully (depending on how you look at it) I was able to get home and spend a few hours with him before we had to take him to the vet. The whole family was home and we were able to hold him and say goodbye and take a few last photos with him (but I can't bring myself to look at them right now). It was a rough day already especially since my great uncle died on Dec 23 four years ago and my great aunt now lives at my parents house. I still have a hard time thinking about it because Sparky was always the last one I would say bye to before leaving to come back to Greenville so leaving the house yesterday was very hard. I loved Sparky and I miss him terribly but I know I will see him again and at least now he is keeping grandpa company since he picked him out for us. He was the best dog a boy could ask for and he made my life better just by being there when no one else was.

      I Love you Sparky

      So my RWBY and RvB Season 11 Blu-ray wont play on XB1. Before you ask, yes I have the update and installed the blu-ray app. The Box can run other Blu-ray's just not RT disks. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • Hello Everyone (Update on Life)

      3 years ago

      DarkBowler Photographer

      Hello Friends

      It has been a long time since I made a journal of consequence so let's see how this one goes. So a lot has been going on the past few months including more than a few photo jobs (Photos Below). But here is what is really new. I have been doing a lot of work on trying to find other employment because this job has really starting affecting my physical and mental health, but that is depressing so that is all I'll say.

      But there is one piece of good news from the office and that is I am being sent to Canada for a few days at the end of October for a company conference and I will be able extend my trip for a few days so I can hang out with all you crazy Canadian people. I will be in Toronto from Friday November 1- Sunday November 3 so if you live/ are going to be around the Toronto area let me know because it would be nice to see some people. Also it would be great if someone could put me up for a few days since Toronto hotels are really expensive when you are solo

      So I have also been taking a lot of photos because well it's kind of what I do. Here are some from my adventures over the past few months.

      The Electric Run In Charlotte NC, The purest form of if you show up with a lot of camera gear and look like you know what you are doing then people will just let you do what you want (as long as you are not a dick). I got around all the barricades to the front of the start line and got this shot.

      If you followed the journal to this part you are awesome and I love you, but not in a gay way... (Boondock Saints) . So please comment below if you are around Toronto during that time frame and want to hang out with some crazy American who found his way north and would like to get in to some shenanigans before I head back south.

      Talk to you all soon

      i don't really use a template...I just use an image of a dollar bill and then set up my foreground and back ground colors by using the color picker and having one of them be light and the other dark, then under adjustments, i select gradient, and that's how I get the person's picture to look like it belongs on the $$, then it's just a question of resizing and doing a touch of layer editing to get everything looking right...

      actually, it only takes like 10-15 minutes per time...my friend's birthday was the same day as the new $10 came out, so i figured i'd make her that as a birthday present...photoshop 8, a gradient using colors from the bill and a bit of erasing and stamping and some resizing and BAM!...
