Just to preface the last ten days worth of photos: it has been a very rainy week. I’ve been stuck inside, and the light has been terrible.
About two weeks ago, I picked up set of cheap clip-on lenses for my phone. They’re nothing fancy, but they’re a fun little toy—especially the macro lens.
The last two weeks have been hectic. I’ve been: loving | worrying | realizing | looking | trying | making | realizing | spending | giving | feeling
I’ve been using my instant cameras a little more often, which is a lot of fun, but… it’s weird.
I was all ready to say I’d made it through ten days without falling back on a cat photo… but then I realized I did take a picture of Lucy.
Ah well. What’s the internet for, if not cat photos?
This is where things start to get tricky. I’ve been taking photos every day for three weeks, and… I’m starting to run out of ideas.
The last few weeks have been exhausting. Seriously. I’ve been: surviving | making | missing | enduring | looking | craving | going | feeling | collecting | wishing
The last two weeks went by in a flash, but they’ve been really good. I’ve been: wishing | wondering | realizing | feeling | trying | looking | realizing | finding | loving | drinking
Most months, I take this post as an opportunity to reflect on the creative goals I’d set, and decide what I want to try to do in the coming month. Sometimes, taking that time to reflect leads me in a direction that doesn’t really fit into the standard format I’ve established for these ‘sketchbooks.’
Which is a roundabout way of saying this might be long, and it might ramble a bit. I’m trying to figure out some stuff, here, and if this isn’t the best way for me to do it, at least it’s been effective in the past.
Ok? Let’s go.
The way I’ve been managing my creative life – the things I’m working on, my creative energy, my time – isn’t working.
I made it!
And I did it in the 12-14 days I said I would! (This roundup is happening about a week late, because the last week has been a bit of a mess.)
