For all those who come and visit thanks for browsing and make sure if you like the favorites you let those hard working artists know.  Hopefully I will have fun of my girlfriends computer this weekend, cause she has the scanner.  I am uploading a buncha photos from my time in the service. I call it "Art on the Run".  All shots of the road to Baghdad, and a few once we got there.  Also some wonderful shots of Egypt. If you have and suggestions comments that are helpful let me know.  I know I haven't added anything in a really long time.

I love being a federal employee...i get paid vacation.  Anyway, my last one started on a bad note.  200 miles down the road to Texas my girlfriends car blew a headgasket.  Needless to say she has a new car now.  Her old one was too far gone for me to fix.  I got my old high school car running again just so she could use it for a few days until she got her new one....so good news is...i'm reunited with my car.  I've had him for 14 years and he was dubbed turbo by a girl i used to drive to school.  not sure if she was being sarcastic or not cause for a crappy 500$ it was fast.  so me and turbo are cruising the streets and causing meyhem.....i'll upload some pics of the best car in the world...14 years and still running.  Ciao.

Alrighty, not like I've got anyone listening, but i'm at work and bored so i'm going to write this out really quick before i get back to the slavin.  I'm moving in with my girlfriend who is way more into photography than i've been so far.  She is teaching me quite a lot and has used a few of my photos in her scrapbooking.  also that means i get to steal her camera which is wayyyyy better than mine.  sorry for the updates, its been rather crazy lately.  I got her new scanner up and running so i should have free rain on it for a little while and that means updates....YEAH!  I know your excited.......ok well anyway thanks for all that check out the few things i've posted so far and Thanks to all that have shared they're wonderful photos and drawings on DA.  Take it easy everyone...if you can take it twice..... ;)

Hello,

One good thing equals 1 billion bad.  Good thing: got my camera working and will no longer have to mooch my girlfriends.....will not even go into the billion bad things.  Didn't get a fargon thing done with my old photos this weekend....did find out though that her scanner works.  

oh well, hopefully i will git of my arse and do something this year.  I've have my son for the next few weekends so we'll see if i can get anything else done other than watching him :)  On a good note i did manage to swipe the last of my photos off the camera from 4th and surrounding dates.  ENJOY!!!!  
(they are not amazing just trying out the slow shutter night setting.)

Alright, now for some of the stuff people hate.  Me talking about myself.  

Hello I'm Callahan,

I've been alive for 28 long years.  I've seen and done so many things that I can't quite remember them all.   I do know that some of that is related to how much alcohol I had consumed.  I graduated in 97' GO Mustangs!  I joined the U.S. Army 5 months after I graduated.  Spent the next 6 years serving the united states goverment and its people.  I've been around the world and fought in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  After I was Honorably discharged from service, I've spent the last 5 years trying to find a job that keeps me interested.  On the side I've been looking for a hobby or a passion.....other than video games.  Art seems to be a free form way to vent or convert some emotions or feelings in a healthy way.  So here I am :)  I'm going to start getting some of my earlier stuff scanned in now that I've got a handle on the rest of this site.  Trouble is most of my earlier stuff is from a disposible camera.  I hope it turns out ok.  Well if you actually read all this thanks.  I hope I get to know more of you artists as time goes on.  I think you can tell by my favorites what kind of art I would love to start.  It looks a lot more complicated then it seems though.  Any pointers and hints tips or shhhhh secrets would be appreciated.  :)  Have a wonderful day.  

Callahan

I want to send a big thanks out to all you artists out there that I Fav'd or admired your work.  Everyone has worked so hard (or not) and i appreciate it.  If your visiting for the first or the 6th time please make sure you let the artists know which pieces you've enjoy'd.  I know its easy to grab a collection and go......but just give them a word or two.  My photos are childs play as of yet, but i aspire to one day tantalize everyone's visual taste buds.  Well, I've droned on enough today.  HAPPY FRIDAY....!!!!

Alrighty.  *sigh* i miss the good ole days.
