I’m still depressed but I’m trying to fight it. Spent the day working on editing all of my 365 entries from last year for a coffee table book. Then I applied for a bunch of jobs, so that I could pretend I have a future that doesn’t involve begging on a corner for change. Finally I got some more pics from the river shoot edited (not work safe). If nothing else, I guess I can keep up my title as most industrious bum.
While taking this picture I realized that I don’t really meditate that much anymore. Used to be kinda into it as a kid. Maybe I’ll start trying it again.
love the angle here.
@jwill9311: thanks. I’ve been trying to amuse myself by having some different things tossed in every once in a while.
Howdy neighbor. I haven’t meditated in, jeez, forever. One of those things you always feel you need to get back to but never seem to have the time for? Sigh. But I do like this one. Speaks volumes.
Hope it helps. Me, I just find somebody to vent on… note your "Cookie Caper" pic. I feel much better now, thank you.
Nice job on this pic. I too, like the angle. Did you use your gorilla pod? I’ve got mine ordered but they haven’t shipped it yet.
@adayinthelife: That’s the sad thing. Honestly, I have nothing but time, I just always fill it up with other stuff. But I’m glad you like the pic. Thanks.
@lrayholly: yeah, I saw that. Even answered myself, though honestly it hardly seems worth it. And actually, no, I didn’t use the gorilla pop here. I used my regular tripod. It’s just a really tall tripod at maximum extension.
again, chiaroscuro really fits you!
hope you got something out of your mediations!
@pi c’s: not really. Another day, more depression. But thank you.
Aye, I have plenty of time too, I do the stay at home mother thing, but really it’s so easy to find *other* things to do, instead of the things that give one that inner peace, get away from that depression. I am glad to see your muse is still working… if you happen to see an extra one lying around, send it my way?
@adayinthelife: heh… you think? honestly, I am so entirely underwhelmed with my photography these days that its sad. I’m glad other people still seem to like it though.
I am exactly where you are at this moment. I’ve taken the photos, but then I look at them, and well, I am less than inspired by my own stuff. You evoke a lot of emotion in your photos even if you don’t intend to, you have an expressive face and you do well with the lighthing. You should go photograph something you normally wouldn’t think of photographing normally. See what comes up.
@adayinthelife: yeah, I just haven’t felt creative. And even if other people have been impressed with my stuff, I haven’t been as much so lately. That is a problem.
