I inadvertently parted ways with Cam this past week due to an unfortunate lapse of memory of where I’d hidden him for “safe keeping.” I missed him terribly and countless times I thought “that’d make a great picture” and the Droid just couldn’t due capturing it justice. So for the hunt this week I thought I’d return to my late fall photos and polish those I loved but just hadn’t shared.
Mainly One Color
Around the Home
I wish my home were elegant – – a place where steaming drinks are served in dainty China tea cups from a matching pot. But alas, I’ve yet to get a tea set of my own and those I’ve ogled over were a little too fancy for my wallet. This little gem was part of my great grandmother’s China set passed down to my mother.
Before Chi decided there was far too much nudity in the National Art Gallery, she posed with a few statues. She has since deemed the collections obscene and has vowed never to return.
This isn’t quite writing, but I’d not shown off Chi’s portrait project. She had to apply with a portfolio to join art club this year, which was converted to “by invitation only” to ensure serious artists were members. It took awhile for Chi to get to this point in her efforts. Initially, she’d quickly drafted a figure that bore little resemblance to her and certainly didn’t display her true talent as an artist. I insisted she work from a photo and the resulting portrait was pretty spectacular.
I miss having time to shoot. My daily walks with Ya were incredibly fulfilling. Darkness, however, is working against me. And weekends are filled with family outings, cooking at home, and other activities that have kept me away from photography. This will change, I assure you, from here on out. Photography is my relief, my outlet, my passion.
