    I don’t mean to be a jerk, but putting songs up is a good way to kick the shit out of your bandwidth limit isn’t it?

    By the way, the picture of your dog’s silhouette out the window is my favorite out of the pictures.

    Wow. You have an amazing eye for taking the most captivating photos.

    Who knew nowhere could be so beautiful. You have officially made me want to visit Utah… which feels strange, even to type.

    I want to kiss the Former Congressman oon the head and rub his tummy, in the worst way.

  • galt (reluctantly)

    yeah, utah’s pretty cool. i guess. i wish i had a sunset like that, all pink and splashy on a mountain. I couldn’t even color that with all the cray. ons. in my big ol’ box.

    See, there ARE some benefits to living in the Air-Waste-Dump/Air-Pollution capitol of the earth.

    Those are incredible pix, Dooce.

    I gotta know: what kind of camera do you use? Even with the nifty photoshop tricks, my pictures never look that amazing. Yours are always so clear and wonderful!

    Dude, Jason Lee all the way. Sorry.

    Uh-oh…point of the mountain. Please, please, please, please don’t tell me you’re living in the land of Provotians!

    Nice pics — nothing beats a Salt Lake sunset.

    I fucking love that song. I wanna be indie!?! (Um, but would that mean I’d have to give up my J-Lo obsession???)

    The last picture gives me figurative buckets of warm chocolately goodness.

  • http://convivial.blogspot.com Heather #2

    Oh, and my favorite pics are #8 & #11 – each of one of your babes. I love people (or dog) picture subjects.

  • http://www.zenmotorcycle.org Evan

    Goddamit, dooce, you consistenly post the best friggin songs. Since, like, forever. Rockit! Oh, and the pictures are awful pretty, too.

    Your Scrumptious Bearded Husband looks hell of a lot like Jason Lee.

  • kath

    Unbelievable! The colors! The Former Congressman silhouette–that’s a geometric marvel. And I am irrationally obsessed with that first hangglider photo. I can’t stop looking at it. What is that bulgy spot on the right side? Did you delete a UFO?

  • http://www.dooce.com dooce

    kath: actually, it’s a drop of water on the windshield of our truck. it is kinda spooky, huh?

  • http://www.antisocialdiva.com antisocial diva

    beautiful pics. great song. love the one of chuck out the window.

    What type of camera do you have? GORGEOUS pics…

    I like that song. What band is that? What album?

  • http://www.thetrailerpark.org slackjaw

    When I dream a heaven, it’s not that different from my everyday. I don’t usually stumble till I see pictures like the ones above.

    It’s then that Heaven ain’t right necessarily and all my visions of truth and beauty are neither. I’m left staring past a sink full of dirty dishes out into an evening, dull gray as a seagull eye.

  • http://www.hammerland.net Xanthan

    What’s with the all the “what kind of camera” questions? The reason they’re beautiful is that Dooce has the eye; great images are made by great photographers, not great cameras. Delightful as always.

  • http://*sigh*-thereisnoneIworkfromanofficecomputer Amber

    That is just gorgeous. I will be out in the land of Mormons (why did I feel the need to capitalize that?) this weekend to ski and see the family. Hopefully much more of the ski part. They have yet to convert me, but they do send a pair of boys on bicycles in bad suits by at least once a year to try… I find giving them a rootbeer and the sports scores derails them just enough keep them off my back! Also -Chuck is wondermous. You must be so proud

  • http://bathtubgin.blogspot.com the joker

    cool pics, choice of song, and pumas.

  • http://idem.swifting.com david

    the band: interpol.
    the album: turn on the bright lights.

    the song ol’ dutch put up is only – literally – 1/11th as awesome as the whole cd.

  • http://inspirationstrikes.blogspot.com matt

    you have great light

  • Sprite

    Xanthan – yes, the photos are amazing because of the photographer(s), but there is something to be said about the photo quality. My camera certainly doesn’t take pictures that clear, so I was simply wondering what kind Dooce has.

  • http://shyeyes.org shy

    i love the second last one. almost a greenish hue. right out of x-files! especially with that white, blurry spot. looks like a ufo. i dig it, dooce.

  • http://www.cafemocha.co.uk David

    They are stunning. My fave is the first one of the hangliders, too.

    Looks a bit like the camera might be a Leica.
    The focusing is gorgeous. Is it a soft focus filter?

  • http://www.cafemocha.co.uk David

    And that song is so fantastic, I’m severely contemplating getting the album. Thanks for the tip.

  • http://vividblurry.com Toby

    Wow, fuzzy glowy Photoshop-y effect in full force!

  • http://www.dooce.com dooce

    the camera is a Nikon Coolpix 990, operated with a lot of love and while slightly inebriated.

  • http://barkins.com Richard

    Love the song, thanx for the mp3! And as usual, fantastic photos.
