SPC - 'Flashback 2010' - #4

Is This One Grainy Enough, Rebekah?
Is This One Grainy Enough, Rebekah?

One of my SPC buddies, Rebekah, mentioned that one of her pet peeves is "grainy" photos, so I thought I'd see just how "grainy" I could make a photo. :-)

SPC - 'Flashback 2010' - #2

Remember my first week of the 'Six Word Challenge' theme? "Wishing I Had Some Polaroid Film?"

My sister noticed it and was kind enough to get me some film from The Impossible Project for Christmas.

I'm Back In The Saddle Again

Six Word Story
5 Senses -- Touch (got my grubby mitts on some film!)

This is not an actual Polaroid with the new film or any other. I processed a Poladroid conversion to appear like the new Silver Shade stuff. I have yet to load the new film in a camera. Maybe when the weather warms up, a bit, especially since it tends to be sensitive to extreme temperatures, hot or cold.

SPC - 'Flashback 2010' - #1

Similar to last year, we're doing a "Flashback" theme for the month of January at Self Portrait Challenge.

Participants much choose two (or more) of the eleven new challenge themes from the year of 2010 and combine them into a new self portrait.

Here's the list of 2010 themes:

Pet Peeves
With Someone
Breaking All The Rules
Speech Bubbles
Favorite T-Shirts
The Five Senses
Straight Out Of (the) Camera
Six Word Story

The obvious ones here are: "Speech Bubbles" and "With Someone."

Less obvious is "Six Word Story" (title).

Stretching it are "Straight Out Of Camera" (except for the speech bubbles), "Shine" (the camera flash in the mirror reflection), "Breaking All The Rules" (none of us are wearing our wrist straps on our Wii remotes).

Feel free to leave a note (or several) filling in the blank speech bubbles!

SPC - 'Shine' - #4

There was a meme going around on Facebook last January where you told "15 random things" about yourself.

My #12 was:
"My camera is the only electronic device I carry with me everywhere. I do not own an iPod or PDA device and the cell phone stays at home most of the time."

That may need some slight revision now:

Shine #4

I got an iPod Touch for Christmas and have been enjoying it.

I still have little interest in having (or paying for) a cell phone, but I do like having a music library at my fingertips and many of the other conveniences associated with a device like this (still learning).
