365 Photography Project_Third Post

It's seriously making me nuts maintaining my "whatever comes out of the camera gets posted' rule, but knowing that is actually making me more concerned with what goes into the camera in the first place so, all to the better, I suppose. The point is, ultimately, not just to document my life, but to make photography a more important part of my life, a thing always done, and in so doing, become a better photographer. I am, at the very least, remembering to take my camera everywhere we go since, truth to told, there really are only so many photos you can take in and around your house.

I sometimes like the look of decaying flowers more than living, all the variations in color and texture, I think.

I take a lot of reflection photos because I love the idea of layering.

Saturday, October 30_This little nail place, where every 3 weeks Lauren get her nails done, is located across the walkway from, the dance studio shown above. I had a hard time with this one because the lighting was odd.

Your garden is beautiful and I love the pic of Goldie when lying on your lap.

I do reflection shots in shop windows too. Your neighborhood is lovely. I tried and tried to see some of the titles on your bookshelf and couldn't. :(

Reflections are so wonderful, all that layering and mixing of imagery, and screwing with the whole foreground, middle ground, background thing, so fun. I'd like to see some of yours if you ever post them, let me know, I sometimes miss things.

The books are mostly art and writing books up high and novels down low. The bottom most shelf is all 'boy meets boy' novels, a lot from the teen section at B&N.

Hope you have a cup of coffee handy.
For adults, my all time favorite is 'Dream Boy' by Jim Grimsley, anything really by Grimsley:

For teens, it's actually, David Levithan's 'Boy Meets Boy':

It was the first of that sort of book I read and I remember wishing Lauren could go to a high school like the one in the story. Hers did end up being pretty close. All of the novels, as you can imagine, are pretty tame compared to what we've gotten used to read in fanfic, but in a way that's what makes them interesting, they actually have to rely on plot.

Also, 'The Geography Club'
http://www.amazon.com/Geography-Club-Brent-Hartinger/dp/0060012218

Also 'Peter" by Kate Walker; younger brother falls for older brother's best friend
http://www.amazon.com/Peter-Kate-Walker/dp/0395647223

What's yours?
