Sweet Spring

I want to keep in the habit of taking photos, and also keeping this blog alive even in the midst of all other responsibilities. But really, i’m thankful for what an amazing foundation that this blog has created over the years and the wonderful support from so many followers and subscribers! I’ve gone past 93 now…I’m just holding off till I get 100 so I can celebrate big time ;). Thank you everyone!

So here is something not too conceptually confusing and artsy. Just sweet sweet spring blossoms. Sweetness is in the air.

Instagra-me, much?

I know, I know. For the longest time I was a hater. I didn’t like instagram, i thought it was tacky and I didn’t like the idea that every one could be a photographer just because they have the new iphone (ego much?).

BUT. I didn’t sell out, or jump the bandwagon (ok maybe I did). But I do really enjoy using my instagram account because it gives me a place to upload lesser photos and sketches like its no big thing. I like to save my best things for this blog, but its nice to know there’s a site I can dump my other in-progress or just lame self-indulgent cell phone photos (of myself).

And right now there’s not much on it, but i’m thinking I might put more artwork, traditional sketches, and maybe start putting something daily…like a 365Instagrame?! Ha..not likely. But definitely keep your eyes peeled. I’m taking over social networking one over popular website at a time…

The Difference of Cinema

I have something special for you today; finally a quality post. Some real photography, and not just close ups of berries or anything like that..! The 12 images below are just 12 of 600+ other “film stills” of a one-minute stop motion animation I made. Until I find a way to convert my swf flash file into something the internet accepts, i’ll just share these photos with you.

The video, although meant to be more of an animation project was, not surprisingly, turned into a photography project. These images are inspired by a previous series of photos I did over a year ago (see here and here). As you can see, i’ve been thoroughly exploring the element of glass and reflection in my photos for some time now.

The concept behind the video is very broad but deals with the idea of a person’s perception of reality and how it’s completely warped and distorted by our own perceptions. We all see our world through our own lens, and sometimes it might be clean and clear, and sometimes it completely covered over.

I hope you can experience a similar meaning when looking through these few photos. Keep on the watch out for more posts; I hope to start updating this blog regularly soon! :)

It’s all about what you’re willing to see. Our perception is our reality.
