channeling Tyra...are my pictures falling flat?

In my 365 project I am trying to take more artistic and beautiful photos, not just the typical point and shoot crap you see scattered around with no emotion. I think some of the pictures I take are in fact beautiful, like this little sunflower guy. He's awesome. But then I scan Flickr and see tons of color, life and dimension that is lackingin a lot of my photography. Some of that may have to do with the quality of camera people use and the subject matter...for instance if I lived in New York there would be a different kind of scenery and lots more to photograph. Plus most of my time during the day is spent at work and honestly I'm getting sick of the roller coaster pictures from my stand. The other factor in my lifeless subjects is that I am often lazy and forgetful, therefore my project gets put off sometimes until the last minute when I look to the cats, food or myself as an opportunity to shoot. Boo. And I know every picture I take is not going to be fabulous but lately they seem i wrong? Maybe I am, who knows. Any advice?

Oh so we've gotten most everything in boxes ready to be moved and I am so excited! The apartment looks so bare its like when Jen and I first moved in. So sad. But I can't wait to make our new place look like home. If only the carpet were in...we are kinda just waiting for word on when we can start moving stuff in. As of now anything we move in today and tomorrw will have to go in the kitchen, second bedroom and basement. Hopefully they start the carpet tomorrow. ANTICI...PATION. I cannot wait.

Well back to work!

the late eight

Tonight I will list eight pictures that I love on Flickr.

Just because.

Check out my Flickr for the props it wasn't copying right.

Okay, so this collection by Kate Spade makes me want to sell everything I own to buy the blouse! I'm still not savvy enough to figure out linking web pictures (sad I know) but I do hope you take a look. I wish I had something to wear red lipstick with.
Often I think of how little I know about internet blogging and things. I would like to learn more and have a fabulous blog someday.

Short one for now.
Have a lovely day!

Its late and early

I've decided to do this: budgeted eating and healthy spending. Switch that.

I saw that this group on this blog is spending $fifty a week on the foor they eat and I thought I'd love to try this. They cut their costs by growing and making a lot of their food which will be difficult for me to a point since I've never grown any edible things ever and haven't attempted a real homemade dish. I made my Granny's butterscotch pie with my mom but nothing more than that. I also wouldn't need to spend $fifty since I'm only one person and they're a couple. I will try growing some things, but sadly the summer's almost over and I won't be able to do much. Luckily my parents are growing tomators (not a spelling error, I like to say tomators..) and even though I don't particularly like the juicy red fruitish veggie, I like salsa. I'll be documenting my expenses and what I'm eating. I don not know when I'll start this but it'll most likely be after we move in. Which will be in the next few weeks.

Until then, I will be packing and working and getting ready to start school.

Here's a picture to end the blog! Have a happy day!
