January 28th, 2008

Pictures lately have had less commentary than usual.
With wind like this, I feel like I'm on the tundra, or a ship. Back in a pottery studio today, for the first time in eight months. More than anything I feel anxious. Everything is balanced, but now, pottery is going to be large part of my life again. Where will that time come from? and what will suffer the loss?

I Like the Idea, though you could hardly call it feasible

I'd rather have these side by side, but blogspot can't do that, at least to my knowledge. This is Sam, A friend of my Roommate. Disappearing/Home.

I wish this picture was a little bit larger. It's actually very high resolution, and i recommend clicking it for a larger view. You might notice that the little girl in blue is standing differently in her reflection, WHAT!?

This is a picture of Chicago's mirrored bean, My beloved brother Luke once described it as "Chicago's Clitoris"

My internet connection is being really ballsy again, I've been trying to put these up for some solid time. boyso. That first one is a self portrait, pretty impulsive too
They knocked down the old art building to make another building that will probably have a stairwell like this one
Morgan looks so good, she always does, what a beaut!

There have been some things I've wanted to write about over the last couple days, though i never wrote them as i couldnt get the pictures up. The main one was that I keep trying to make commitments on emotions that are fleeting. I'm trying my best to be a good student, but it might not be conducive to creativity. I have such a hard time balancing my activities. I have some good craft plans though.

Today i made a ten second film of a mans face, it was 4 frames in focus 4 out, 4 in, 4 out etc. Running at 18 fps it should look interesting. I'll probably never get it into a digital format so i thought i'd just write about.

I'm just now realizing things I never thought I would. I hope things get better, for everyone, for both of us, for all of us.

Something has been wrong with my internet connection for a while now, all better though
This is Jessi Whitten
This is a Knee.

What if i took 10 pictures a day, what if I never finished them, what if i just did it for the practice and discipline, what if i saw a nice picture in the viewfinder and left it at that? whatifthatsallyouhavetimefor?

Someone told me that it was my responsibility to make myself understood, and not theirs to understand. Which is true!

Took this picture of grace not too long ago. I read an article about "High Dynamic Range" photography, I'm keen to try it. You take several images at different exposures and use software to compose the mid-tones of each into one picture. It's supposed to be closer to the human eye, and a stronger impression of what you can do with film
