BYU Gamelan Bintang Wahyu & Panoramic Steel

My aunt and cousin are in the BYU Gamelan Bintang Wahyu Ensemble, and they had a show recently that I went to. I think the Gamelan Bintang Wahyu is from India. (edit: It is from Bali, not India. Thanks Aunt Myrna for the update!) Anyways, it was a very interesting show.

Their performance was followed by the BYU Panoramic Steel Orchestra. I have not been to a steel orchestra performance before, and it blew me away. Ten or fifteen drum sets sounded like a full orchestra! Wow. I don't know how to explain it, but the sound is surprising and amazing.

One Last Trace of Fall

This was taken a while ago, but I finally got around to working on it just a bit, and thought I would post it.   edit:  This was taken in a canyon in Logan, UT

Las Vegas

Well, I recently spent a week in Las Vegas with my cousins. I got out one or two nights and took some pictures around the city. I also took family portraits for my cousins, so I'll be posting some of those pictures soon. I am attempting to host pictures on my own server space, and also am trying to make the pictures a bit bigger, although for now, what you see is that you get, there are no files that are larger until I figure out my workflow for that. edit: (arg, can't get large size to work. I hate web authoring in general and the way blogger handles pictures in specific. Soon I will be telling all you avid followers to put my new address in for my blog, which will be hosted on my own server using the Wordpress platform...) 

edit again:  Hmm, arg...  I guess this is as good as I am going to get with this particular post.  Click for a bit larger pics...

My Ride!

Long time

Well, it has been really really long since I have posted anything, and that is bad because the point of this blog was to be a daily event.  I have set a December's First Day Resolution to get back on this.  I recenlty went to some interesting concerts and also spent a week in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving, so I have a bunch of photos to post.  First one coming in a few hours when I get home from school.
