Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.
I’m getting a little frustrated with WordPress and the comment section. My comments are not showing that I have them but my email is. WP is aware but not going to hold my breath on the issue being completely fixed anytime soon. Today’s photo was actually taken yesterday. I just wanted to post the kitty with the books. There was no flash used but the light from the morning sun coming in made it seem like there was. I think I was able to capture an ‘Ireland-esque’ feel for the color palette. I was really trying to capture perspective but also an image with a focal point that draws the eye. I like it but think I can do better.
Last night my husband and I were invited out to drink at several St. Paddy’s night events. As usual, we opted out because we are getting old and drinking all night isn’t as appealing as when we were young. This morning however I had made plans to have a traditional Irish breakfast with another couple that would include the ‘Dublin Bloody Mary.’ We showed up, got a message that they weren’t going to make it. I’m just going to leave out the weak explanation. My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast but the cancel (4th time in a row) put me in a bummer mood.
For today’s photo, I decided on happy upbeat colors and decided books for the happy reading lost kitty would be great. And since I had such a heavy breakfast I’m off to make a salad. Happy Sunday Y’all!
This morning was mine and my son’s ‘coffee date’. This is where he gets hot chocolate and I get coffee. He was a little disappointed that I told him, ‘no toys’ as I wanted to try my hand at a ‘moody’ coffee photo or as I just learned, ‘lifestyle’ photography. I need more practice. But the barista did awesome making this look yummy.
I waited until after Friday errands to take and post the photo and I wish I hadn’t. I feel like I’m being rushed and I can’t figure out why. Tonight’s post was taken while we were out for dinner before going to the grocery store. I have a coffee date with my son in the morning then shopping for a painting project for the kiddos at our kindred’s Ostar celebration, so I’ll be busy. Pretty sure my project photo will be late tomorrow. Here we are lost kitties racing. I’m enjoying the bright color palette that these lost kitties figures offer.
I think my moods are definitely affecting my images. Or, it could be a few minutes of sunshine and warm weather. Either way, I’m feeling positive and REALLY hopeful I will land this job. It’s such a positive work environment and there’s actual teamwork! But let me get back on track, tonight’s image is of me taking advantage of the melting snow and HUGE puddles forming. Luckily, I had just the little toy figure to use. With the color palette, I was trying to capture happy or warm colors with a bright cooler hue. I was even able to capture falling water!
I wanted to get my project photo done so I can just go and lay down. There is only so much people can handle (emotional, mental or physical) and I need to numbingly lay and do nothing. I did put a little more effort in the image today though.
I didn’t do much in the styling of this picture. There’s much more to it than the legos that were put together. This is what it looks like when I’m functioning with anxiety and depression all while trying to seem like everything is OK. I tried to do some editing and even like the grainy vintage effect that I was able to achieve. The complimentary palette almost translates Harry Potter but not quite.
Is anyone else thrown off by daylight savings time? Or do you even participate in daylight savings in your neck of the woods? I brought a figure to work with all intentions of taking my photo early but it never made it out my bag. Tonight’s photo is more or less a kitchen helper image. I do, however, feel I need to step up my game so I’ll be doing some research into photography tips and tricks to really make the images pop. I’ve been proud so far of the photos that I’ve been able to capture but feel I can do more.
