Wistful - thoughts on a partner.
Wistful
Wistful - thoughts on a partner.


One of my very favorite shots from last week's photo shoot with medeine. I had just asked her about her family and partner and this was the look she gave me.

The best poses, most real emotions, come from memories.

More to come later assuming I'm not throttled by the model for posting this one. :) This was my first paid photo shoot. Now, to start building a studio....

Weekend otherwise:
Yesterday I did NOTHING (except for the gym). It was GLORIOUS. I didn't even bother with pants. Pants are for suckers.

Saturday was unfortunate day of Migraine but good photo shoot in the evening as evidenced above.

This week:
Blissful week of ease. I'm in training through Thursday afternoon. Friday a seminar.

Tomorrow I get art from kiwikat for monies (You looked at her sale, yes?) and work on certification projects.

Woo bonuses and slack and art and collapse. Thud.

The person next to me in training is smacking her lips while she eats a bowl of cereal. *punches*
Chew with your damn mouth closed!

We've been sitting here for an hour "reviewing" the previous classes with an exercise. Getting bored; finished it 30 minutes ago.

Current Mood: artistic artistic

Well, you DID want an easy week... ;)

"Wow, ABM, what a great photo! I enjoy X, Y and Z aspects."
Or...
"Man, ABM, I really dislike that photo for A, B, C reason."

I think I'm going to start inserting opinions to all comments.

Easy and boring are two different things though. :)

I already told you I liked that photo.

easy and boring so often coincide that it's really surprising when they don't.

But me adding opinions is hilarious!

Boring ion this case is sitting and waiting. The material is interesting enough but when an exercise takes an hour and a half? No, that's just ridiculous. Sit 'n sit 'n sit...

But it makes blogging so much better. :)

Or at least, keeps me entertained in the slow moments.

Can you tell on your monitor of the eye color is showing? I'm on a really crappy workstation in training and can't see if it's noticeable.

Not on my monitor.

i'm looking at it on an HP1745, and it looks completely greyscale.

neat shot, though.

Well poop.

I love that faraway look in her eyes there. I think if you asked me about my family I'd make a similar face, but maybe with a bit more wrinkles in the brow.

Pants ARE for suckers. I spent much of yesterday in a similar state, but I accomplished more than you because I went to the gym AND Trader Joe's AND sold art.

As if life were a contest where whoever does the most wins. Did you have a pants off danceoff?

That sale went (is going, it's up until Wednesday) quite differently than expected. I messed up the first post so it didn't show on friendslists and it was up 5 hours before I figured out that was the problem- the whole while feeling rather sad that nobody wanted anything or even bothered to comment. Duh. : )

But it ended up being a slightly better than average sale post, which was exciting! Made my first international sale too (New Zealand).

I think the lack of brow furrow is that she was thinking about her kids and partner rather than parents and siblings. These seem qualitatively different to me. At least, I'd expect people to generally appreciate their spawn more than their brood.

I twitch when i think about my family. This would be a bad topic for a photo shoot for me. :)

Yay selling to a kiwi!

Did you have pants at Trader Joe's? That could be bothersome.

No pants off danceoff. I was LAZY most of the day. Dancing requires energy, silly!

That's true, if you asked me about Brian and the cats or even the grandparents I would react differently than if you asked about my parents and/or siblings. I agree that the general sentiment is more positive toward our offspring and less toward that which we came from.

Your selling to a kiwi comment confused me for an embarassingly long time. In my defense I didn't sleep much last night.

I had to wear pants to Trader Joe's. Everyone is always crampin' my style.

Not if you just sort of lazily drift back and forth like a very stoned hippy!

"pants are for suckers" is my new favorite phrase.
