I bought a mug and a mouse pad with my work, on Sunday. Snapfish, or shutterfly had less expensive mouse pads, and imagestation.com had really cheap mugs. Now I'll be able to see what my work looks like on two different items.
Today I decided to look into some photography stuff. My mom really likes my bumble bee picture and told me she wanted a puzzle of it, so I went online and ordered her a copy for her birthday. I also used the same service to order 10 prints for free (besides shipping). My portfolio is growing very very slowly.. I should sift through my stuff and find more pictures that I want to add to it.
I'm also looking at photo submission guidelines for a lot of different places. They expect a lot, bad news for me The only digital submissions most places accept are from like 11 megapixel camera's. I need a new camera apparently (eventually). I'll continue my search though. At the very least I'll be able to see what these places are asking for, so that I'll be better prepared for those situations.
Also, I don't necessarily have to sell my photo's that I've already taken this way. I can sell them directly, and even maybe use my site to allow people to buy things like puzzles with my work.
Have been sifting through my photography lately. These were taken in July while I was living in Everett, MA. The stair picture is going upstairs to my apartment... I rented an already furnished room..so these weird wall pictures and the door that won't close is my old room. The building is a building at the end of the street that I liked. The sunset I took out of a window because I liked the red (it was rainy that day and I couldn't get a good shot outside.) And what's with throwing shoes over lines? Was it that movie that started that trend or what?
These were taken in Malden, MA, just a town over from Everett, in July as well. I think this day I had Pho with a friend, and then we went for a walk around the block because I liked the buildings and wanted to take pictures..
I had a nice trip to New Hampshire, and went to Vermont with my sister. It wasn't that nice of a day really, so we only stopped 4 or 5 times to take some pictures off the side of the road. I missed the greatest picture ever because my memory card was full. I didn't have time to delete the picture cause my sister was stopped in the middle of the road. No cars were coming, but it's quite a risk to be parked in the middle of a road.
I went out into the "wilderness" today (Middesex Fells Reservation). Not really wilderness since I could still hear traffic most of the time, but oh well. As much as you can find so close to the city..
Saturday I went to a party that my brother was playing at (he always seems to be playing), at about...3pm? I dunno. It started off small, but then people started showing up. I took a picture when the night was coming to an end.
Sunday was a nice relaxing day in JACKMAN. It was quite a drive to get there, but my mom and her friend had told another one of their friends that they would go up to her camp. Jackman was really ...quiet. Not a place I would want to spend a lot of time, there wasn't a thing to do. We had a really nice picnic however..oh and I took a nice picture of some mushrooms.
When we finally got back into town, we decided to stop by the place my sister waitresses at. I wasn't that hungry, but I had a salad. I took more pictures outside of the restaurant.
The sun was setting, and the sky was BEAUTIFUL as it usually is in Maine. My mom decided to take me on a little drive so I could try to get some pictures.
