day 14.

day 14.

Rain. Rain. Rain.
So much rain.
So I wanted to be dry.
But I can't take pictures in front of people. (At least, not of myself.)
So I went and took pictures in my car.
It's called improvising, baby.
This is in the back of my old school Windstar. We've been on many an adventure together. She deserves to be in at least one of 365 pictures.

Tomorrow is going to be a very good day.

Oh, and how does this shot look in terms of brightness/contrast? My eyes hurt so I my monitor is pretty dark right now.

day 13.

day 13.

I just wanted to do something a little different. . .I'm not so sure if I like the result, but no matter.

It rained all day and I didn't feel like going outside. I take far too many pictures in the rain as it is. So I used the limited light in my room. Trying to get out of my comfort zone I guess.

And I know I owe you guys comments. I'll check out your lovely blogs tomorrow.

day 12.

day 12.

It was very wet today.
This was the first shot I took.
I rarely keep the first attempt.

sooc apart from a crop. 

day 11.

day 11.
With an hour to spare :O
When I remembered my 365, the sun had already set. I was forced to shoot inside. And if you take a look at my stream. . .very few pictures are taken indoors. I do not enjoy it.

So here you go.
I do love this lens, it saved my pride.
I. Will. Not. Fail. This. Project.

Since I met you, I've been alright.

Since I met you, I've been alright.

day 10.
you turn all my darkness into light
since I met you I've been okay, I've been alright

now I'm carried away
never seen the sun shine like today
you made something of my life

Yesterday I was feeling depressed. Actually, oppressed.
There's something I want to do, a step I need to take. . .but I feel like satan is constantly there whispering down my neck. You can't do this. Who do you think you are? You're not good enough. You fail everything else you try, what makes you think this will work?
I bought into the lies. I believed him. So I prayed. I prayed and prayed and prayed and fell asleep praying.
I woke up and felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. There was another voice whispering. You can do this. This is the path I have set you on. Trust me, child. Lean on me. I'll be your strength. I felt an overwhelming sense of peace.
I have a purpose :)

I have no idea what this shot is supposed to be. . .I was feeling happy I guess. But I'm pulling a weird expression. I guess I do that a lot :P

I see now it's just one of those days.

I see now it's just one of those days.

day 9.

I feel horrible. And I don't even know why. I didn't want to shoot today. So I did.

Some people cheat on their 365's. I can understand that. I have just decided not too because I'll feel like I've failed if I do.
So I guess that's my excuse for a crappy shot. Sorry.

I'll catch up with comments and blogs tomorrow when I'm in a better mood.

day 7.

day 7.
I don't actually like this.
But I guess that's what you get when you do a 365.

1 week down, 51 to go ;)

So I guess that I'll curl up and die too.

Every time you're feeling low put on your headphones.

day 5. . .
. . .and I'm still alive. Amazing.
Didn't have much time to shoot yesterday, this was a 5 minute job.
Just for the record, I harbour an immense dislike for this song. It's just been stuck in my head for a long time and I thought the lyric fit. :P

day 4.

I went on a photoshoot with Willow today.  I wish I could say it was successful. . .I got some okay shots but they weren't really want I wanted, ya know?
I wish I could say that this had some kind of deep meaning behind it, but it was more of a "crap, everything else I've tried has failed, so I think I'll jump on a table and take pictures" shot. :P
more coming from this shoot.

This was taken at the lake. . .we got some weird looks :P  Old guys staring, young guys yelling, families laughing. . .the things we go through for pictures.

day 3.

My entry for the contest we're having on Immaterially Focused.
The theme is addiction/obsession.

I have the reputation of being a coffee addict. It started when I was 7 and my stepdad introduced me to instant coffee with evaporated milk. Ahh. If you haven't tried it, you must. You have no idea what you're missing out on.
But now I drink it strong and black ;)
This wasn't everything I wanted it to be, but close enough. Possibly the most difficult photo I've ever taken!

Oh, and did I mention that I'm loving my new 50mm? hehe

day 2.

day 2.

I got my 50mm today :)
I took this about 7 minutes after ripping the package open. 
I'm in love.

And yes I'm wearing an old t-shirt because I couldn't wait to take pictures ;)

Whoa.  I just realized how sharp this lens really is. . .you can see my scar :O (on my cheek)

You've been hiding in shadows for so very long. . .

I am so out of the habit of blogging.
Willow and I went to the lake and took pictures.  So here you go.  Click to read the descriptions on flickr.

You've been hiding in shadows for so very long.

Time after time, I walk the fine line.

You can choose your friends. . .

I feel like venting, but I won't lest I say something I'll later regret.  Lets just say I'm figuring out that most peoples hearts are as desperately wicked as my own.  Or at least almost. 

Proverbs 21:23 - Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
