365 Day Project: 46

I had to take my daughter to work since my husband is working late tonight. It even hurts my stomach to drive. UGH, and it’s really starting to annoy me. By the hospital is a little junk/salvage yard that seems to be closed more than it is opened. I wanted to play with the editing filters in snapseed and perspective blue. I like the bright dramatic touch the end image has and the complementary color palette is warm even though the subject is cold (there’s a lot of snow). Happy Friday guys! I’m working on catching up on things from my bed 🙂

ANOTHER WINTER WEATHER WARNING! This time it was more sleet and icy rain than snow. I would take the snow ANY day and then tonight the temperatures are going to plummet again. This means that anything that is left on the road that is melted it’ll turn to ice. Add the temperatures being below 0° salt will not work. I know rambling but this only means that the roads are dangerous and I can’t scout a new building or subject so I had to creative here at the house.

I found it only fitting that when I asked my son for one of his action figures that he brought the snow yeti creature. PERFECT! I used a macro external lens and let me tell you, I can’t wait to work with this more in the spring. I took almost 100 different photos and found this one to be oddly mesmerizing. It’s like the yeti was caught in his natural habitat and with the little twiggy vine almost makes it seem like I was intrusive. What do you think?

I think I’ll also pick up a few action figures of my own for backups throughout the year. Yes? No?

This morning I completed my doodle comic for week 4 and it turned out better than I expected. I just hope that I get inspiration for my next comic. After that was done, it was time to run my Saturday errands IN the -°22F weather. It was awful. On the way home I saw these trees. Even though humans mutilated the branches so electric can run to houses it looked like it stood defiantly and grew wings. Oh, I also got a chance to use my 2x zoom lens on my phone. I need the EXTRA zoom lens. Ugh, it is what it is.

365 Day Project: 25

All I can say is at least I made my midnight deadline. It’s unbelievably freezing so I hate to admit that all I did was roll down the window and moved the car forward to capture this photo.  But, WOW! How did I get something to look so regal? This is actually a house that my husband and I made a bid on when we first moved to the state. I didn’t realize how much money was required to maintain a home like this and the rules. This house is located on a historic block and homeowners have a specific set of rules set by the town that need to be followed. It’s a good thing that we were outbid because I don’t do rules all that well.

This is going to be quick as I’m exhausted dealing with snow, work, kids, you know life in general. I’m not feeling too good about weigh-in tomorrow so I’m going to head to bed and sleep my worries away.

I have never wanted to throw my phone in a field so hard and far in my life! I just wanted to try and capture a decent sunset image. I swear this small town was purposely built to not see a decent sunset from ANY corner of its boundaries! I did settle on this one and was able to get a really bright complimentary palette. Hex codes for the colors are listed in order from left to right.

One Whole Year!

A year! I made it a year without smoking! Maybe I cheated by using Chantix but it worked for me. The dreams were hilarious! Now don’t get me wrong, there are times that I really want a cigarette. Like the times when my teen is tap dancing on my very last nerve. Or how about the times that I have chores crying with urgency to get done but my depression has a nice warm hug around me. Or even the times that I’m around people that are lighting cigarettes left and right and I’m sitting there holding a bottle of water like an adult (something that I wish I didn’t have to be at times).

I guess the point is, I had a goal a year ago and it’s been a year since I picked up a cigarette. I don’t have much in way of goals this year but focusing more on my new Norse heathen path, family, and maybe now and then get a doodle and some kind of writing done. Oh, and of course another job. But today, I’m just happy I made a year of something without quitting or giving up.

Have any of you completed a goal from a year ago? Either way, how do you feel about it? Are you going to try again? Are you going to try something else? Happy Monday everyone!

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.

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.
