I haven't been taking notes but I started using the My365 app to try to keep track of images.
I found that the more I tried to fit the standards of PL the more I started to feel pressure to record every last detail in exact order which took some of the fun away from the process.
I started to ask people to pause while I took photos which caused a certain amount of vexation in my family. As my husband said several times this week- it would be nice to eat dinner without me stopping everyone so I could shoot the plate.
I love how not a single one of those shots ended up printed- it was boring me to tears.
Then I read the latest 52 creative lifts newsletter by Ali Edwards where she says it's more about being present in the moment than getting a smashing photo every time. Suddenly the whole thing felt a lot easier and less monumental.
Without much ado here are this week's efforts:
Some detail shots:
|The Lolster- she's too funny!|
|Real honest to goodness art at the 14th Street Station|
|This stamp set is AWESOME! This|
is a photo of my long lost Instax
prints I found in a random box
after months of looking.
|Found that bicycle clip at Container Store as well- it|
followed me home. The backing for most of these is
a NYC bike map from 2011- too old to use now.
|If you want to shoot ipod shots with gloves on|
you gotta sacrifice that glove tip. I opened the
seam and pulled the glove back over my finger
tip when done.
|I ALWAYS wear a helmet- even though|
I look like a Class A TOOL with it on.
