19/366 – Frost
Today was a horrible, horrible day. I was supposed to have a meeting for the first potential job opportunity I have had since I started looking, but my car wouldn’t start this morning because of the cold (30 below with the wind) so I had to call and cancel. Things just keep piling up and it is getting harder to stay positive these days.
One of the bright spots of my day despite everything: The stunning golden light this morning while I was getting ready. I’m glad I notice it before I discovered my car.
This is where I spent my night, and will be spending most of my weekend. Between printing stuff for critique and getting thing mats ready I will be in studio almost constantly over the weekend, and pictures for this project may suffer because of it.
In hopes of finding some sort of grand inspiration for my project for the semester I went out driving this morning. I ended up in Paris, Kentucky for a little bit, and found this abandoned train station. At least that is what I assumed it was.
I didn’t really figure out anything in terms of a concept for my project, but I got some good, non-conceptual pictures which is better than nothing I suppose.
The title of this is somewhat ironic for me right now, since not much is clear at the moment. With my critique coming up in less than a week I decided tonight that I am scrapping my originally idea and starting from nothing. I have no clue what to do for my project, and it has been wearing down on me all day. Which is why I have yet another simple, night-time candle shot. Tomorrow I am getting up early to drive around and just shoot in hopes of finding inspiration, so at the very least I will have something different for my 365.
Today was a such a long day. I was pretty much running from one thing to the next, and so I am just now having time to deal with my 365. And the scary thing is that every day this week is going to be like this and worse. My 365 may be lacking creativity and effort for the next week because of it, so bear with.
This is not my best splash picture, but it had been a while and I had some ideas I wanted to try out. I still need to perfect a few things before sharing those though, so for now, something a little plain and mundane. And I had no clue what to title it, the title is plain and mundane as well.
Fall just kind of fell on us here in Kentucky. There was certainly no easing in to it; 100 degrees, sunny, and humid one day, and 60 degrees and rainy the next. We have had three straight days of darkness, cool temperatures, and rain. I kind of enjoy it though because it means I get to wear my favorite pair of shoes (well, boots), and drink lots of tea.
