I’ve been watching all of you lucky iPhone users play with Instagram for almost a year. I don’t have a smartphone (I’ve got the cheapest low-frills cell phone and plan on the planet), but Neil got me an Android tablet for my 40th birthday last year, and ever since then, I’ve been playing with photo [...]continue reading "Instagramming"
I sometimes wish I could think my blog posts into being. I’d have written four or five of them in the last week! I had quite the prolific run on my blog back in 2007 and 2008, and I have moments of wishing for those days back. I still do have so much I could [...]continue reading "Thoughts"
I think my 365 Project is doing a better job of representing how I spend my days this year than it has in previous years. Maybe it’s because I’m not focusing on a particular theme this time around, and just shooting what I’m doing. I realized this when I sat down to process several day’s [...]continue reading "Day to day"
It was just over a year ago that I got this lovely camera bag. I loved it (as much as one could love a bag) and I took it with me everywhere. I loved that I could always have my camera in tow, and that it was well-protected. I really loved that the tote looked [...]continue reading "Bag angst"
Another year, another Project 365. This was my third one, and I so enjoyed it! These are a few of my favorite images. You can see the rest on flickr or picasa (your choice – I’m in both places at the moment, waffling between which I prefer more). This time around I gave myself a [...]continue reading "The year in review(ish)"
Remember when I used to post Flickr Favorites on Fridays? Can you believe it’s been almost a year since I did it last? Yep. Long time. I’ve been favoriting photos since then, but I haven’t been sharing them. Last night I set out to make mosaics of everything I haven’t shared since the last time, [...]continue reading "For the love of Flickr"
So Picture Color is over, and as usually happens to me at the end of one of these project months, I am relieved. I had fun, but am ready to be done. 30 days seems to be my magic number. Day 25 – heavy metal Day 26 – watching for whimsy Day 27 – going [...]continue reading "Picture Color, the final chapter"
Another colorful week come and gone… Day 17 – the color of light (I got lucky – the sun was out for about five minutes that day, and I managed to catch it) Day 18 – What’s your shade? (Mine’s “papaya” – this is pretty much the only makeup I wear. Special occasions call for [...]continue reading "Picture Color, week three"
Another colorful week come and gone. I’m enjoying this class – I always think color is fun (do you remember the color challenges we used to do around here?) So here’s the latest. Hard to believe June is more than half over already! Day 9 – the texture of color (I never noticed all of [...]continue reading "Picture Color, week two-ish"
Shall I spare you the “oh, I have been sooooo busy” and “sorry I haven’t been around more lately” speeches, and just show you what I’ve been doing in Tracey Clark’s most recent class, Picture Color*? Yes? Ok then Day 1 – Blissed out on color – a few of my favorite hues Day 2 [...]continue reading "Picture Color, week one"
