I am currently trying very hard to declutter my house. As I found myself tired of sorting mountains of papers and bags of crap I decided to start on my Christmas decorations. Last year I was so busy with the ridiculous myriad of volunteers jobs at school I barely had time to do much. That will not be the case this year. I have new lights and they are up!
I’ve been unavoidably detained~ but I have taken a few photos here and there when I could. As I play catch-up here on my beloved blog I am grouping things together in a time/theme fashion. My apologies for my absence. 😉
In contrast to my last post (Signs), I thought a gallery of very calm and peaceful photographs would be a nice juxtaposition. Thinking positive and calm thoughts~~~ *sigh*. Peace be upon you.
Although this is a work in progress that I started several years ago (I’d like all the letters to be the same size and perfectly spaced, but what an OCD nightmare that is) I am posting this for my Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs. For 2 reasons: It is un-perfect like me, and I love it. You don’t have to be perfect to enjoy life, and I am sharing this with you right now, in all it’s un-perfectness. I also will freely say, that I took the letters from various signs in images all over the internet. So not only did I not make the neon letters I didn’t take the photos either. But I did copy, paste, and crop to my hearts content. Hopefully I am not stepping on anyone’s copyright toes, forgive me if I am. I do own the butterfly which in real life is big (3′ x 2.5′ or so). I had it made for me, the artist is my friend Phil Radke, of PR SIgns and Service, sign guy, extraordinaire.
30 shots (of the sky, not booze) between 8:02:51 and 8:10:59. Just 8 minutes and what a change in color after the sun has set, and then *poof* all goes gray.
I guess it seems like everyday is an adventure when you are a bird. Here is a crow diving down oblivious to the linear beauty behind him. Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure!
