Pride Week: Sunday

by Ellie McHale

With Pride Week at an end (even though people are still out celebrating), I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to go up to San Francisco today. This was the first Pride I’ve missed in years, and with marriage equality the law now, I so wanted to be in the throng! This entire week, I wanted to celebrate! Next year, though.

To round out the week long series, I give you Ms. Dusty Springfield. You didn’t know she was bisexual? Well, now you do!

If I had any semblance of a decent singing voice, this would be my go to karaoke song. Always and forever, I love this song!!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Pride celebrations and plan to continue to celebrate love throughout the year and until the end of time. Remember, love conquers all, even if it doesn’t seem that way.

Peace out, y’all and have a wonderful week!

Pride Week: Friday

by Ellie McHale

Bloody well finally! It’s the middle of 2015 and marriage between consenting adults, regardless of their gender and sex, is legal. It took long enough! What a perfect time for this to happen.

Of course I have to work both Saturday & Sunday, so cannot revel in the streets of San Francisco with everyone. But, there will be more than enough people celebrating! What a joyous occasion! [I’m really hoping no one screws it up and wreaks havoc in the streets. Everyone, whilst having fun, please be safe!]

Tonight, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite albums: Bitter, by Me’Shell Ndegeocello. Please go and buy it. It’s money well spent. Seriously!

Seriously, folks. What a momentous day. Celebrate in the best way possible. Love! Be love! Share love! Give love!!!

Help! I Need Somebody!

Hey Lil’ Biscuits!!! Hope all is well out there in the world!

I’m coming to you today to ask for a huge favor. While music & writing are huge passions of mine, photography is something I’m trying to actually persue as a way of making money (even if it is just a hobby I’m getting paid for). Come to think of it, my dream job is to travel around the world, talk to people about their cultures & sense of community, figure out what makes them happy, use music as a communication tool when words fail us, hope they’ll allow me to take their pictures, and relay our stories onto paper to share with everyone else. That’s just a dream, but one I hope to accomplish by the time I’m 70. I’ve got 39 years to do that.

While we’re on the topic of a sense of community, my favor I am asking is that you, any of you, donate a dollar, 5 dollars, any kind of dollar amount to my project & general startup that is Ellie McHale Photography. Right now, tangible rewards are limited. A few high ticket donations will get 30 lucky people a (tasteful) print or two of mine (of my choosing), along with a thankful shout out here & a YouTube shout out. Everyone else will get, at least, a thankful plug here, possibly a video of acknowledgement on YouTube. Yes. I will get in front of a camera, show my face to the world, and talk to you, funny accent and all.

So, please, if you find a sliver of compassion and/or the giving spirit, please mosey over to my fundraising page and help a sister out. I promise that any monetary donation will be used on nothing but photography equipment & photography business related items. For example, I will spend said donations on photography software, memory cards, extra batteries for my camera, website hosting to show my work, printing supplies, actual prints for my portfolio, lenses, printer(s), paper, ink, flash(es), lighting, studio equipment, etc.. You get the idea, yes?

I do thank everyone in advance for taking the time to consider donating… And, for donating if you do. You are phenomenal, and I wish you all the best!!

For the time being, please go to both Ellie McHale & Ellie McHale for a tiny idea.

“Only This Moment…”

by Ellie McHale

I dedicate this song to our lovely protesters that graced us on Black Friday. You were much more nostalgic than legitimate, and I applaud you for that, kids. Go forth, and prosper. Hopefully with something much more worthwhile.

I Am Half The Sky

Yes. I am. Are you?
Please, get involved!

A Life In Paperback

Two years ago, my mother bought me a book for Christmas. It sat on my bookshelf up until recently. Now, I am kicking myself for not reading it when I received it, as it has turned into this amazing phenomenon. On October 1st & 2nd, PBS hosted a four hour documentary, the visual tie-in to the book I was gifted.

As “Half The Sky” sat within walking distance of me for almost two years, I always made a note to start reading it. Now, with the PBS documentary aired and an amazing movement brewing, I vow to read the book & watch the documentary, all the while taking notes. I have signed up to become a Community Ambassador & hope to host screenings of the documentary in my neighborhood & community. If accepted, this will be a great way to do something of substance with my life. It will act…
