I began my Photoblitzer challenge in my home at 11:15.

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 11.30.47 PM

I then took a rustic looking photo of a few posters on my wall in my house in black and white.

I then took a picture of this Coca-Cola wall hanger that I got in Egypt years ago.

This spaghetti box was my picture of food.

I chose this cookout cup as my representation of fire, pretty cool find.

I then decided to take a screenshot of my selfie in several different filters.

This is a picture of a landscape that I found on a poster in my house.  Pretty cool picture of some deer.

This building picture was taken of the new World Trade Center in NYC that I took a few weeks ago that I found in my photos.

This assignment gave me a rush of adrenaline as I was running around my house to take photos before the 20 minutes were up!

We’re The Real Brady Bunch

The Brady Bunch

In this picture, I cropped in pictures of several of my friends and myself as the “Real Brady Bunch.”  Those other guys are fakes.


This was a pretty tough assignment, I had difficulty trying to adjust the background to fit correctly with the pictures that I imported.

Love At First Shot

Couple Pic

This picture is of a couple that met on the Internet in 2016.

They are avid users of social media and one day the man in the picture decided to direct message the girl on Twitter.

At first the woman was skeptical of the man’s methods of approaching her, but she promptly responded after seeing his swag on his Twitter avatar.

Once they met, they really thought they were going to be going strong for a while.

After taking 70 pictures together, that they would post on Instagram (as seen above), they would soon realize they weren’t really into it.

They dated for another couple weeks, then broke up.  They didn’t talk again other than through mean subtweets.

Moral of the story: don’t Direct Message people on Twitter looking for a significant relationship.

What’s in Your Saddle/Bag

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 9.47.41 PM

Items that I use daily from my saddle:

Notebooks- for my classes.
Pens- to diligently take notes in my notebooks.
Cell Phone- debatably my most important item I carry daily, needed for nearly everything, ha!
Computer- Used for all of my internet surfing and classes, mostly for my DS106 class, of course.
Nasal Spray- Don’t really know why I have that in my bag, ha!

Refection on Cinematography: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

I loved re-watching this movie, its a pretty interesting tale of a man who decided to move out West and was confronted by some stage coach robbers.  He ended up beaten up and homeless, so he went to live in a small western town where he changed the whole culture and became the big man in town.  Of course by the end of the movie, he was the man to kill Liberty Valance (the stage coach robber).

This was a black and white movie that had to use contrast and lighting to really show the emotions of characters.

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 10.56.43 PM

In this seen there are looking over the coffin of their dead friend.  The erie lighting really portrays how the characters are feeling at the time.

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 10.57.04 PM

This next still photo, shows the danger that all of the characters are feeling though the choice of dark lighting.  Liberty Valance is currently terrorizing the town and causing havoc.


This movie was able to portray emotions well through cinematography even with the lack in visual technology.

Hopes, Dreams, and Fears

Hey future Andrew,

This is from you ten years in the past, hopefully you have remembered writing this in the beginning of 2016 as the time has passed.

Im assuming (hoping) that you are pretty successful by now, possibly working in Washington D.C. for an international foundation or internationally.  If not, I’m sure that you found your way to something that you were interested in.  Just make sure you aren’t doing anything that you aren’t happy with.

By now, I am also hoping that you have at least one child that you can throw a baseball with in your free time.  I hope that you have instilled in them some of the values that your parents taught you back in the day; don’t forget those, they made you who you were and I hope those same values stuck with you.

I hope you stayed in touch with all of your good friends that you made through your years in college and baseball.  If not, reach out to them; they are some really great people.  I’m sure you could use some time with them.

As of right now, I don’t know much about how the world is going to be in 2026.  So I’m sure you are doing great and going with the flow, as you always have.

Keep being great!
Much love sent from the past!

Yourself Andrew


This was my favorite assignment this week.  It gave me the opportunity to really look at where I want to go and who I want to be in the future.  This relates to digital storytelling because I will be able to actually recall this letter in 2026 if I want to.
