Photo 365: 04.27.11 – 05.03.11

A couple more pictures to show you this week. I need to start thinking outside of the box a bit and get creative again. I’m kind of in a rut that I need to get out of. I have recently been thinking of this as a chore instead of a creative exercise and I need to change that. Especially since I have a whole list of things I want to try and haven’t. Shame on me :) But anyway, here are a couple from this past week:

50mm, 400 ISO, f/2.8, 1/60

I like this shot. I like that I’m wearing stripe on stripe and that my earring is in focus. I like that you can see a little bit of my bangs but not my eye. I’ll keep it :) I was facing my favorite window that lets in a lot of light but on this day it was raining so it’s not super bright which was exactly what I wanted.

18mm, 1600 ISO, f/3.5, 1/60

Putting my office together. I always take a long time to put a room together because I like to stop and think exactly where I want things to go. It makes a huge mess but when it is over, I’m so glad I did it.

Can you guess what I am mad at myself for this week? Amidst all the excitement on Wednesday, I didn’t take any pictures. I’m so mad!! A huge storm that will go in the record books and I didn’t document it. I could have taken pictures when the hail was the size of golf balls (that we later found out smashed our laundry room window). Or when we were playing cards with our friends by candlelight. Or when we were holed up in the basement with the cat. But no, I forgot. Bummer. It will have to just be a picture in my memory. And, I will try to do better next time :)
