TWiP: Unusual Lighting

Whether it be provided by nature in the form of dappled sunlight, or provided by a technology in the form of a pair of color-changing bulbs, my photos this week have their share of unusual lighting.

I always find it interesting when an unplanned theme emerges from my image collection.

Yesterday I wore my “I’m blogging this” t-shirt to work, and now that I have mentioned it here, I am no longer lying πŸ˜‰

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

Instagram πŸ“±: What a beautiful morning! Slept with the window wide open last night, and I’d be breakfasting outside right now, if not for the 5am thunderstorm that came through and soaked everything. It’s ok, though. This spot on the bed is actually much more comfortable, and I think I’m going to go find some cheery morning music to listen to while I dive into this #artfulblogging – it’s been too long since I’ve picked up an issue!

365 πŸ“·: 2017 119/365 – Is it bad that I’ve pretty much spent all day in the same spot? Next to an open window, feeling the lovely breeze, nerding out on my tablet and laptop, reading a magazine, listening to music… I did leave this room for the ever important Saturday afternoon trip to Starbucks for a soy peppermint mocha no whip frappuccino, so there’s that.

Sunday

Instagram πŸ“±: All I need is an afternoon with a good movie on in the background, and I can totally finish the body of the sweater today. Yay! Also? We put my favorite quilt on the bed last night (#pdcskinnerblendquilt). Yay! Also? We booked our annual long weekend getaway to Ocean City NJ and now I have something to look forward to in the next month. Yay! #reasonstobecheerful

365 πŸ“·: 2017 120/365 – For as long as I have neighbors with pink trees and a 250mm lens, there will be images like this in the spring πŸ˜‰

Monday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 121/365 – I don’t mind dandelions. This is a good thing, considering how many of them we have around here…

Tuesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 122/365 – It was a beautiful sunny day today, perfect for driving home with the windows open and the music playing loudly.

Wednesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 123/365 – We got some colorful light bulbs today, and the first thing I did was turn the room my favorite color πŸ˜€

Instagram πŸ“±: Starting the second sleeve! I’ll definitely be done within a few days, assuming I stop taking pictures and actually do some #knitting πŸ˜‰

Thursday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 124/365 – The novelty has not worn off with these light bulbs… I call this arrangement "3d glasses."

Friday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 125/365 – Rainy day today, but I mostly missed it, being indoors and all. [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: My favorite candle is lit, my lights are set to “cozy” and I’ve got a Roku full of entertainment. Friday night, let’s DO this thing! #tgif

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
