Going to Scotland! But first, making things!

We’re going to Scotland for Worldcon 2024 next month! I’ve been preparing for this trip in the most Lisa Clarke of ways: making jewelry and a shawl to coordinate with the convention colors. Oh, I’m such a nerd really, but I can’t stop myself! The artistic geniuses in Glasgow have designed an official tartan, a yarn colorway, custom fabric, and all kinds of other things featuring the convention colors and branding. And naturally that has inspired me, too.

If you know me at all, you know I love mixing up custom clay color schemes for special occasions!

If you’re headed to Worldcon, too, or you just like navy blues and deep purples, and light greens, and such, read on to learn more about the collection and maybe buy a little something for yourself.

Back to the Beach

We visited Ocean City New Jersey again, as we do. Every year it gets more difficult to find new perspectives from the same old scenery. This year, rather than fight it and dream up some new photo project for myself, I just decided not to force it. And yet, somehow, I still have a few dozen photos to share with you.

Guster in Concert

I saw Guster in concert on Tuesday, a fact that anyone who lives with me, or who follows my Instagram feed closely is no doubt tired of hearing about 😀 But for the rest of you, I present these images and thoughts about the concert. In a nutshell, it was a fantastic night, concertgoing alone wasn’t the worst thing ever, and I plan to see them again sometime for sure.

Lomochrome Purple, part two

Lomochrome Purple in the Autumn

When I shot my first roll of Lomochrome Purple in the spring, I thought that it was pretty interesting. But I also thought that there just wasn’t enough green around to make it amazing. I decided then that I’d need to try again in the summer for sure, but also in the fall. In the […]

Cooper Gristmill

In the beginning of August, Neil and I took an after-work trip to Cooper Gristmill, a lovely historic mill surrounded by lush trees and babbling water. It’s been nearly three months since that trip at this point, but luckily images keep. Everything outside my window right now is orange, so the green of these images feels like such a throwback!

Wherein I spend several paragraphs talking about how I might be getting bored of writing photography-based posts, and then write a photography-based post. I explore the question, “why are my ocean photos often not as great as being there?” and I give you a peek at my new camera (and the first few images from it).

The Otherworldly Vibe of Lomochrome Turquoise

I took Lomochrome Turquoise film to the beach, the swamp, the farm, the river, and the coffee shop. In some cases it looked like a whole other planet (for better or for worse), and in others it resulted in just a pleasant teal tinge. Take a look!

July’s Mini Adventures

There were some really lovely spots where I only went for an hour or two last month, alongside the bigger trips I’ve already shared with you. Rather than give each of these their own blog post, I thought I’d put all of my favorite photos here in one place, and just show you the highlights. Take a look!
