I have been keeping up with my 365 project for the most part, I just haven’t been as good with uploading them. Here is one from today…my Gramps getting help with his new cell phone. I love when my family is all together like this.
Month: November 2010
Changes, promises, and permission
And we keep going!
The show at Bloomington is down, but that isn’t the end! More shows are coming in 2012 and I’ve already begun planning new work to add to this series. It is exciting!
In the mean time, the holiday sales are already in full swing. These not only give you a chance to buy handmade pieces from local artists but a chance to find great things for yourself as well! In fact, Minnesota Center for Book Arts (www.mnbooksarts.org) has their 9th annual Book Arts Festival going on today from 10am to 5pm! I will be there selling prints from my current Digital Dreams of Life series. You should stop by!
And this is why I f~€*|^g shoot film
There is a particular feeling of dread you feel when you are trying to pull important photos and movies off of your smart phone and see the error message. That one that your phone flashes at you, gently telling you that your memory card sucks and you are therefore screwed.
Yes, it stinks. Really stinks. Yes, there were things I didn’t even have a chance to back up. No, it isn’t really the end of the world.
Of course, my first reaction is to spout off that this is why I shoot film, that film doesn’t just die like that without warning. Which of course is not true. (You just quite often never see the film images that don’t work out. Digital and being able to see things right away and know how awesome they are only to not be able to use them is just cruel.) Film can be a very harsh mistress too, but after having worked with it for so long, I feel like I know it better, know its nuances. I trust it. That feeling is really what keeps me shooting with film so much in the first place…what will keep me shooting with it in the future. My cell phone 365 almost ended tonight. The image in this post is not the one I intended for today, but, it will work. In the mean time, perhaps someone at The Nerdery will be able to resurrect my sd card tomorrow. Maybe not. Life goes on.Until next time,
Extra sleep, even that one short extra hour have been wonderful.Also, I need to stop forgetting about my blogging and 365 project until right before I go to sleep. Tomorrow there will be more content, including upcoming show info! Until then, ~Peace~
Doubles are better
I admit it. I am so geek-ily excited that the camera app I use on my cell phone does double exposures now!! This will be a very fun 365 project now! Here is one I took last night.
teaching classes, painting walls, and just hanging out. Very awesome Saturday. :)
