365 Day Project: 17

I think I need to make taking pictures during the daylight more of a priority after work. I thought about doing it during my lunch breaks but A. There isn’t anything interesting where I work and B. If I’m driving around I don’t get to eat my lunch and for a dieting gal like me, that’s not good. Although I did learn something about my town that I haven’t noticed in almost 7 years. Our library has a name! And a cool name at that! I think the palette is complimentary but only because of one color but the codes are listed below from left to right. Happy Thursday everyone!

365 Day Project: 15

I cannot believe that I have stuck with this for 15 days! I have downloaded a new camera app and it has allowed me to take tonight’s photo with more lighting than my regular cellphone app. This was once the home to an awesome small town restaurant that unfortunately could not compete with the larger towns that are less than 30 miles away. This small town is where hopes and dreams of business owners come to die. Part of the reason why I don’t freelance for my area. Now what I’ve just learned is that I need to practice more using this app, work on organization and storage, and get a tripod of some sort for the phone. I think my color palette for the color theory portion of my project is monochromatic and hex codes are listed below from left to right.

365 Day Project: 14

I’m really wishing I had lenses and a tripod for my phone. UGH! What I see and what my phone see are two different things. Especially now that I have my new prescription glasses. I’m trying to take photos in such a way at night that doesn’t have to much grain. If I try to edit the grain out then I lose detail so it was several attempts and an hour screwing with editing to get what I was somewhat pleased with the bridge and lights image tonight. Being from Texas I will FULLY OWN being a winter weenie and will not get out of the car unless it was an emergency. I’m hoping as it warms up I’ll get out of the car and perhaps improve the grain on night photos. As always the hex codes for my complimentary color theory palette portion of my project are listed from left to right. I’m finding that it’s getting to become rather easy for me to pick that palette out and need to try to push myself for other palettes. Happy Monday everyone (if there is ever such a thing).

365 Day Project: 13

Today was a difficult day. Difficult being I could barely get out of bed. The argument from yesterday has turned me into a basket case. I only registered 600 some odd steps on my fit bit. I managed to get out and take a photo for my project. I really wish I had a zoom lens for my cell phone because I think it would’ve brought out more detail The subject was painted two summers ago but she’s really taken a beating. Even though she’s fading, if you look hard enough you can see the beauty before the elements took over. The color palette I think would fall under the complimentary genre. I’ll try harder tomorrow…I could really use some sun, support, something.

Saturday Stints

Saturday is my day to get all the errands completed even when the budget gets tighter than what was expected. Groceries are first and then my photo for the day which I’ll be trying to capture in a town over since that’s where I pick up groceries. Then it’s trying to poorly draw my comic for the week. If it brings a giggle then so be it.

Then it’s Thor’s Blot tonight with the kindred and I’m just trying to hammer out some details that were not mentioned on the event page. This means possibly putting a dish together at last minute with as little funds as possible.

Now, in a panicked fast voice read on: I need to pick up groceries but leave enough money left over to possibly make a dish to pass at the blot tonight, then I need to get a photo for my 365 Day project because I CANNOT flake out on that if I want to get better at cell phone photos. Oh, I need to edit them and post too. I can do that from my phone if I have to but I hate it. What is my comic going to be about this week? Ugh, fuck it. I’ll wing it. Oh, I need to look for one of my wacoms and PRAY that there is still software somewhere for me to download. I got on the treadmill this morning but I better make sure and eat low points today because if there is food at the blot I would want to eat. Damn the mead, I’m going to have to dip in my weekly points. Not a problem I have almost a full bank. Shit, I need to put money in the kids’ lunch account, and gas. Gas needs to go in the car. It’s almost 6 in the morning I if I look now I can find the tablet and doodle in peace before the kids get up. Too late, I heard legos being dumped in the floor upstairs. Leftovers, the kids can have leftovers tonight and the younger one goes with us.

This is almost exactly what it’s like with my anxiety but what people are not seeing is the depression because all I want to do is crawl back into bed and forget what all needs to be done and went through my head. I know I have forgotten something and will remember it when it’s past time to be done or due. Off to look for one of my archaic Wacom tablets. Happy Saturday everyone!

365 Day Project: 11

I found a little humor in my image. Being from Texas this is the equivalent to a southern tardis. Dr. Pepper is my Achilles heel and it’s hard to find in restaurants in my northern area. Until we can get the funds to get back south this is like a little oasis in a frozen tundra. I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried dramatic editing and I wish the framing had turned out better. Tomorrow is a new day and hopefully, it won’t be so cold. Have a safe Friday evening. The hex colors for my monochromatic color palette as always listed from left to right.

365 Day Project: 10

The sun actually came out today and with the results from this morning’s weigh-in, I had other things to do first. I took the opportunity while waiting to pick up the kiddos from school to work on my perspective and composition of my project. I decided on a complementary color palette for the color theory aspect of my project. Nothing like a fence and stadium to give me a ‘Carrie’ vibe (I love horror movies as if Y’all already didn’t know. Hex codes for my color scheme are below from left to right as always. Happy Thursday everyone!

365 Day Project: 9

It’s freezing outside. I don’t mean freezing, but F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G! With temps dipping into the lower single negative digits and my eyes still feeling a little burn and blur from the dye I thought I would try a little up close photos without a macro lens. I decided that I need to get a mini tripod for my phone and a macro lens. I’m working my way towards certain gear. You can help by just buying me a coffee. Moving on, tonight’s photo (because I AM A WINTER WEINIE and I’ll own that) is a bracelet of Odin’s ravens taken indoors with minor editing. The color palette I’m absolutely in love with because it reminds me of an old detective movie. Oh, I do down save the images for better loading time across devices and to save on media space. I’m wondering though, am I developing a certain style? Should I go outside the comfort zone with editing?

Eyes See the Doc

I had a hunch that my eyesight has gotten worse due to headaches and the tiredness that I feel in my sockets after a day of work. I’m writing and reading blogs in the morning, stare at a screen all day at work, then a few hours when I’m home to take my picture, write, read and deal with emails. All that added up for me to make an appointment. I was going to take this opportunity after my appointment to capture a photo. I was WRONG! I didn’t realize that you REALLY can’t see anything up close after your eyes have been dilated. This was my first time so I was scared to drive home. I made it home white knuckles and all but not photo. My husband helped later that night when I was kind of able to make out shapes and words. I looked at day 9’s photo and was SUPER happy. I need a stronger prescription as my astigmatism has gotten worse. In about a week I’ll have some new peepers.

So, anyone putting off getting to the eye doctor…do it. Your eyes will thank you.
