I don’t know why I titled this fluff. It was the first thing that popped into my head, and nothing else would, so I guess that is what I will go with.
I had done this idea with my roommate for my last 365, but ended up going with something else (the exploding egg for those of you who have followed me for a while) that we did the same night. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out as cool this time, I think because of the different glass container. Also, I managed to cut myself in two different spots, and was dripping blood absolutely everywhere. I will say though, that blood looks pretty awesome when it lands on a pile of flour. It immediately beads up and rolls around for a second, pretty cool in my opinion (although, I am a bit of a nerd).
And just for fun, here is my finger immediately after it was cut.
Once again tonight, I didn’t take a picture before class, and then it was dark when I was out of class. I originally wanted to go do some star trails tonight, but it was getting late, and I hadn’t had dinner, and there was a full (and very bright) moon which made it difficult to see any stars. So I was asking Elliot what I should take a picture of, and he said “will you do a challenge?” I told him yes, so her grabbed a few items from my house, and we then headed to his apartment. Once we got to his apartment he grabbed a few more things and put them on his table, and told me that I had to use at least one of the objects on the table. I could shoot anywhere, and use any lighting and combination of objects that I wanted, but I had to use one of those objects on the table. And it also had to be in black and white. As soon as I saw the knife I knew I wanted to do something with it, and then my mind made the connection to the hat.
I know the “blood” doesn’t look realistic at all, but hey, it was somewhat rushed, and my first time faking blood.
It was definitely a fun process (the challenge part), I think I might make this a common thing. So, by all means, if you would like to challenge me with something, let me know!
I am extremely accident prone, and pretty much every day, no matter what I am doing, I manage to get a bruise or scratch or lump or something. I was cleaning up and organizing my house today, and was reaching behind the metal shelves in the closet, but my arm got caught on the end of one of the poles, resulting in this scratch, along with 5 other ones below it. And yet, this is just a typical thing.
I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday, my schedule ended up being pretty busy, but here is Sunday’s post. I apologize that the comment about it is simply copied from Flickr, I don’t have a ton of time again today, and am pretty tired from lack of sleep last night.
I love getting my picture done while it is still light out. And I won’t be walking around much for the rest of the day so I figured this would be the best that I would get today. Artistic, not really; meaningful, nope; realistic and appropriate, yes. I was playing soccer and I guess got kicked or something? I’m not really sure what happened. But now I am sitting on my couch icing away, and hoping that I will be able to bend it soon.
