Art Boxians! Welcome back!
It has been too long. As for me, well, I have had quite a few things happen in my personal life and, well, I didn’t blog much. For that, I apologize.
That being said, let’s move on to better tidings. Yesterday, I went to a gallery exhibit at the Cleveland Print Room called “Vernacular: Lost and Found”, which was a completely fascinating collection of old, found photographs that were a little bit funny, a little bit creepy, a little bit nostalgic, and definitely all fascinating. This got me to thinking about what will happen to my old photographs someday. I have to admit, I wish I could say that I had more of them to leave behind! Ah, to have time…
Anyway, I didn’t take any photographs of the show itself, but I definitely recommend, if you are a Clevelander, that you head out to CPR and check it out. It was definitely worth sitting in the holiday weekend traffic to get home.
And now, on to my next thing.
I went out shooting yesterday while my mouth was still numb from my root canal (I timed that one perfectly, didn’t I?). My photo-friend and I found this quaint little cemetery (always with the cemeteries with us two) with some gorgeous trees. I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite shots from our little outing.
This self portrait is more of a reflection of what I feel like when I am NOT shooting … a little lost. A little haunted. I am still trying to get the perfect self portrait that depicts my mood appropriately. This one comes pretty damn close.
Just a few of my favorites.
So, Art Boxians, what the hell was the purpose of this post? Eh. There wasn’t one, really. I am just really stoked that I got a chance to hang out with my camera for a while. Oh, speaking of which …
I did a little small scale light painting in anticipation of when I finally get out there and do this large scale.
In the meantime, don’t be like me. GET OUT THERE AND SHOOT! Don’t have two jobs if you can help it… I feel like I lost my soul somewhere. 😦
