Was in a weird mood today. You know those days where things are just a wee bit off? Well, I did like my new pink shirt and my locket, so I made it the photo of choice today. I heart my locket (pun kinda intended).
A pretty uneventful day. Talked to my sis and niece and nephew, went to pharmacy, Panera, and to Target. Got a coffee maker at Target. I had one, but it isn’t working right lately and is burning my coffee and leaking, so I got a $20 replacement. I plan on utilizing it rather than stopping for my morning coffee run at McDonald’s. That adds up pretty darn fast!
This was taken around the corner of my house. For those who follow my stream, you saw it a few weeks ago. It’s an accessible place with a few areas of interest. I was hoping to take photos next to the wig shop, but it wasn’t lighted at all 🙁 I was hoping to take a funny freaky mannequin head and me shot. Oh, well, I like the shapes and moods in this one.
I went to a new city and a craft fair today and i totally didn’t get any good photos of myself 🙁 Anyway, these were some just home and worn out photos. Another one below.
It was rainy for thus another craft show I attended. I think it put a slight damper on things. Boo.
I tried to take some outdoor rain shots. They were all really blah with bad lighting. Yuck! So, I came in and took indoor a.k.a. I’m going to have 7 years of bad luck shots. None of these were all that great either. I’m tired and didn’t want to reshoot, so this is the pose for the day.
Also, it must be said that 47 is one of my favorite numbers. 7 is my favorite number with 4 coming in second place. I don’t know why…has always been this way since I was a kid.
Today wasn’t a great day or a bad day, it was just a day. honestly not trying to be negative, but I kinda have cleaning over my head. I could go on, but basically, I don’t have a very good method for cleaning /organizing and it doesn’t come naturally to me; therefore it wears me out. I have visitors next week and I want my place to be somewhat in order. I made some progress, but I still have a lot more to do.
I love this wall that’s in the Tower District. It was so colorful. I don’t want to post all the photos tonight, but I’ll post more in the upcoming weeks of this wall and some of the other building art in that area.
An ordinary day. Nothing too exciting happened. There was this very weird small stream of light at my apartment entryway that intrigued me, so I got on it quick. By the time I finished the 3 minute photo shoot of my shoes it was practically gone. I like the natural little vignette it created.
Standing outside of Anthropologie. I didn’t go in (was about to close and I just went 2 days ago). I don’t go to the mall too often, but I went to Sephora and Urban Outfitters to check out their books and gifts. They had some great stuff there. Oh, and they sell Wreck this Journal there as well.
Did go to Panera tonight with a co-worker! What can I say? I can never get enough!
Until next time Swellions!
First off, this was a pain in the butt to shoot. Mainly cause my tripod is super crappy. I need to invest in a new one, but I may have to wait a couple of months for that.
I wanted this to be a little bit more visually interesting than my photos have been, so I added this Holga frame and desaturated the photo. I took several poses like this. This was actually the best and only usable one in my eyes. The other ones weren’t very flattering. This one is kinda awkward, but at the same time, very model-like, so I’m ok with it.
In was actually going to shoot with my wide angle before the sun set. Well, I saw a new neighbor and we chatted for 5-10 minutes. In that time frame, the sun set considerably and I missed the shot. When I used my flash, my wide angle adaptor lens only lets me shoot so narrowly (not incredibly wide). It’s leaves a flash shadow, as seen below. Bummer, eh?
I swear. I almost think it does more of a fish eye effect rather than a wide angle look. Do you think so too?
Took this while watching Southland. That show is actually pretty good. I may watch it again. Looks like Tom Everett Scott (remember him from That Thing you Do?) has gotten a regular gig. Also, I could have swore I saw Wil Wheaton. I could do an imdb search or look at his twitter stream, but I don’t care that much.
