Not much to say about this one.... We had McDonalds and ate it in the car park. This was in the car park! Woo Hoo! how exciting is that!
Box of Buttons
Every old woman must have a box of buttons… my Gran did. Not this box, this box I bought today at a thrift shop. I want to use them in a project I have in my head.
As I sat down and went through all the buttons taking out the threads and tacks and little bits of fluff… I started thinking who’s box of buttons this had been?
She had an old pencil that was sharpened with a knife I would guess… and to a nub! I don’t know how she even held it! There were three keys! The top of two lamps, you know the old ones that had the thing that screwed on to keep the shade in place… one brass and knobby the other a ship with sails flying! There was a marble and 2 lego pieces, an elephant pendant… 25 Danmark coin, and a variety of religious metals. Oh yeah and buttons of course!
All tucked away in a tin with only one working hinge!
I couldn’t help but wonder and also think back to my grandma’s button box! I could even find buttons my grandma had too! Even so far away the buttons were the same! Lol!
It was well worth the 5 Euro I paid for it… I got so pleasure from just looking at the treasure inside and dreaming even if I never do anything with it… it was worth it!
“Get that fucking camera out of my face! NOW!”
So we just realized I hadn’t got my shot for the day… no time for a project or going out anywhere so has to be an inside job tonight! :~)
Sitting… both of us looking around the room like to lost fools! Michael says “cat!” we thought of his treats and how he tortures us (mostly Michael) for them… then decided to go for more than another cat shot! Save that for when we really need a shot! I mean hey, if you have a cat…. You always have a photo! Right?
Tonight he wasn’t cute though! Lol and that’s why it HAD to be a cat shot! Because he started being really cute in the bag at first….. playing like a cute little kitten! Then he turned into this when I got the camera out! He usually doesn’t mind it too much… I think it was the flash (yeah right!)
So a cat night it is! After his performance I think he deserves his place for day 240!
So just watched the clip from Live Aid where queen played “Radio Ga Ga”
Wow now that was really cool and I remember seeing that live too!
But just before that…….
So I went in the kitchen and made chicken wraps for us with left over KFC… and realized I had no shot for the day… sooooo I took, no actually Michael took… the camera from the sitting room and brought it to me whilst I was in the kitchen tending my wrap creation….
When the idea came to me to take a pic of a flame… woo hoo I hear it’s a 365 must have! So this is mine! You can see out the window that’s over the sink… that’s the orange bit at the top, out the window, not the sink!
I decided against the usual blue flame and contemplated purple for a while but came to the conclusion that sepia-ish flames would be better!
Wow! What shite’!
Please stop reading this as its total shite’ and not has nothing to do with anything! :~)
I put more photos on Etsy! So go on and tell everyone you know to go there and buy some masterpiece! I’ll be dead someday and famous and they will be rich and famous for owning my “work”! And you too could own your very own limited edition!
Wow! Now that WAS just WEIRD! And I promise never ever ever to do it again! Seriously!
I won’t! I promise… I can’t even go back up there and read it it’s so very “oh please check out my stuff” and pathetic like…. Ohhhhhhh pleasssssseeeee!
Anyway… here’s the link again btw… just in case you did want to go have a look… you know if you were bored and had absolutely nothing else to do….
And if you don’t go look….
Figure it out! :~P

Cool Looking Back!
Obviously this is not a photo! But it is every photo I have done for this project! I know they are small but trust me they are all there! I had help from the following link…
The reason I did this I because I was viewing my photostream on a slide show… I never do this! I have done it maybe three times now. And….. it’s really really cool to do! if you haven’t done it please do and if you have, your way cool! I can remember the days! That’s what I was hoping for somehow through doing the 365 and I guess it’s working! I have been thinking of whether or not I would do another 365 one after I finish this one…. I have some contacts that have finished already and others about to and some starting the new journey!
I think now I will do another 365 but I'm thinking of keeping it private… I love to get on Flickr and post photos and comment and look around and relax. I feel guilty just posting photos and not commenting. So I think I I can escape the everyday pressure I put on myself and reap the benefits too!
I say this because yet again I am posting and not commenting! :~) please forgive me!
A prosperous life…
I don’t think about how many people would come to my funeral if I died right now… nor do I care to be honest… I’d be dead! It seems so insanely unimportant!
That’s not what I want from my life anyway… many friends, keeping busy with a baby or so, man to work, blah blah… that’s not me!
I don’t want to fit some mould in “Little boxes” I would much rather sit with hubby and cat listening to music watching tv just me and him and no one else… some people would probably say it’s not healthy… we should go out and meet people and have friends that come over for dinner and be sociable…. And all that shite’
All I want it to be with hubby and do and feel everything with him! He is my best friend! I still, after 8 years married in October, I can’t stand to be away from him for one minute! Not one! I miss him…. like a big baby I miss him!
Anyway I got really soppy there and it’s cool now…. I'm ok!
What can I say… I have an amazing physical, emotional, spiritual, and prosperous life!
Sorry for the ramble but I just thought I should say…. :~)
I'm stoned man!!!! :~P
I know that something man made isn’t natural really so maybe it should be “geometry in the real world”!
Anyway I love to see it and I love how photography makes me look at the world different! The first time that happened to me was in Amsterdam and took mushrooms! It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be…. I don’t know what I thought it would be but….. it was sooooooooooooooo much better that I ever imagined! Big big super wow! And lol! We didn’t even take the strong ones! We took the baby ones!
That’s when I saw colour for the first time! In Amsterdam on mushrooms….
It didn’t feel like anything at first and then… all of the sudden things looked different and felt different! Colours were the first thing and the biggest too! I could feel colours when Michael touched me! It was a truly amazing experience! It couldn’t have been any better! And Michael and I were both in the exact same place! it was such a cool thing together! I never tried acid of anything like that before. Most I just smoked pot.
Every few minutes one of us would be looking out the window and see something that was really colourful and one of us would say to the other “come over here quick and look at the pink, orange, yellow, red, green, blue” or what every amazing colour happened to be flying by on a bicycle or something someone was wearing or anything!
I think it must open some part of your brain that you access on your own!
Anyway it was cool! I didn’t mean for geometry and reflections to move to Amsterdam but it did so…
We also stared at the following picture on the wall for about 3 hours!
Well you wouldn’t have taken your eyes off of it either if you saw it moving the way I did! :~D
A Flowering night!
I'm a day late in putting this on up but I did take it yesterday at 00:59:34! I processed it after that but it still counts as I took it before 12:00! RIGHT?
Oh never mind it doesn’t really matter anyway… if it’s before or after midnight it’s one a day! And it was still my day yesterday till about 4am so I had loads of time left! Nooooooo problem! Even though I still didn’t put it up! :~P oh well!
I'm sure you can guess why! ;~)
Birdie Looking Back
When I was little… hummm well I would say age 6 to 12 Gran and I would play badminton. We didn’t have any rules we would just get out in the drive way, bare feet on gravel and hit the birdie back and forth! She was 52 when I was born but that didn’t seem to matter much when we would be playing badminton! Or doing anything else for that matter! I had a great back hand! We would play till we both dropped! Then have a shower bath in the front yard under this big mimosa tree and sit on the porch till we drip dried!
Here is a link for you…
Gran is the one in the brown pattern top and tan pants…. That never stops running around doing this and that!
Listen to what she says at 0:57 seconds… “There’s my girl!”
I made a brief appearance at 2:40… I'm the blur staying out of the way of the video! The photo over the table is me, my mom and dad.
I didn’t post this video a relative did but I’m not in touch with them anymore.
And of course that’s the house I pretty much grew up in and later lived in after my grandparents died.
My dad makes his appearance at 5:48 and at 6:08 Gran is finally sitting down!
7:57 you get a glimpse of my grandpa, Baw Baw with his cowboy hat in the greenhouse!
And my big finale is at 8:16 just after the scream!
All of that came from a photo of a birdie…
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
