Context for the uninitiated: Every Reed student spends his or her senior year writing a big fancy thesis. Twice a year (i.e., in the spring for regular students and in the fall for those who started their theses in the spring) there's a Thesis Parade, at which the seniors (identifiable by their plastic laurels) dance and scream and make out with everyone and ritually burn copies of their completed theses while the rest of us spray them with champagne. Then they march through the library, across the lawn, and up to the registrar's office to symbolically submit their theses.

Three orders of business:

  • As you may have noticed, these photos are presented in the form of a handy Flash slideshow! The photos are clickable. Let me know if you like it, or if you want me to post photos the traditional way also/instead.

  • I redid my Web site.

  • Relatedly, it is now possible to buy prints of my photos! At the moment, the only photos available are the few I've put on my new site so far. I'll post an update when there are more you can order!

Edit: If the slideshow doesn't work for you, let me know, but in the meantime you can still check out the photos here.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Once again, forgive my tardiness.

All right, also extremely late, here are some pictures of protesters marching in San Francisco the same day Prop 8 was upheld in May. I kind of think they're extremely mediocre but am posting them anyway because people usually want to see.

I'm going to be alternating posting Reed events and California events until I'm caught up, so more Reed photos are on their way.

These pictures are from May 2. Sorry I've been so damn slow getting them up.

Here's another Renn Fayre tradition: Picting. A bunch of Reedies, called picters/picts (Should this be capitalized?) strip naked and paint themselves blue, then run around campus chasing and hugging other students and professors. Then there are the anti-picters(/copters/copts), a clothed group armed with water guns full of red orange paint; the two groups try to smear one another with their color of paint.

Last year's pictures can be found here.

The picters said they were fine with my posting these, but just in case: If you're a picter in one of these and you've changed your mind, e-mail me (mollygingras at gmail).

I'm a little late on this, I guess. I fail at timeliness, but hopefully you guys are still interested.

Last Tuesday, the California Supreme Court handed down its ruling in the legal challenge to Proposition 8, voting 6-1 to uphold it. (See this timeline for some background; read the recent decision here.) A crowd of same-sex marriage supporters in front of the Supreme Court building in San Francisco reacted to the ruling Tuesday morning.

Shortly afterward, about 200 of these protesters, mobilized by the group One Struggle, One Fight, blocked an intersection on nearby Van Ness at Grove and, when they refused to move, were arrested. Those images behind the cut.

Don't forget to look at PART ONE!

I have very little experience with sports photography and am not good at it, so these are mediocre, but I thought they'd be fun for the people involved.

Annabel is now 19 months old. And she can talk! Mostly she just says hello and goodbye to things ("Hi Ma-yi!" when she sees me, for example, or "Bye-bye, toes!" when she puts on her shoes), but still. So adorable.

Part one of cuteness, after the cut!

This morning Portlanders gathered at Portland State University as part of today's nationwide protest against California's Proposition 8.



These girls had my very favorite signs. In case you can't read them, the one on the left says, "PLEASE LIKE MY FAMILY," and the one on the right says, "I LIKE MY FAMILY." Amazing. If you ever wondered what message initiatives like Prop 8 send to children of gay parents, there it is, right there.

More after the cut.
