...I’m thinking I’ve come along way in taking more ‘regular’ document-something pics, like the red dyed hand, and even more ‘artsy’ pics, like some of the self-portraits, than I have in years. I think it’s all about access, and having an easy, handy camera (and tripod, Hi Lynoure!) is really the trick.
I doubt it will cause trouble keeping itself going.
Than just ‘take more.’ By itself it doesn’t seem to be doing much…
I will have to thing of something more specific, that doesn’t involve too much outdoor time, as today, there is snow!
Took this photo of myself on the train platform yesterday on the way to work. You may notice that I’m wearing my 43things shirt!
Do you have one?
I went ahead and purchased the new camera I had been looking at, and so far it is an amazing dream compared to the massive old digital camera I had been using. I had previously to bring a seperate bag for all the extra camera gear, and now, it’s simple, small, and so easy. I’m hoping to get out tonight before the sun sets to grab some shots of something interesting.
I looked at some cameras at Best Buy today and drooled over their small portable shiny wonderful-ness. Mine is such a bulky beast it cannot be used as a quick out-of-the-pocket grab the shot kind of camera. It is great for portraits or studio work(I don’t have a studio) but I need the one that I can take everywhere at anytime, without even thinking about it. I am going to look around for more things to sell to finance such a purchase…
I opened a Flickr account and started posting some older stuff, but I really miss the way I once looked at the world around me, looking for the latent visual potential. I’m trying to at least take my camera with me to work more often(should be every day) so that I can get back in the habit and relearn what I’ve lost.
