10 on 10 - January 2012

I managed to get a 10 on 10 in! I had been somewhat frustrated the last few months with the boringness of my pictures. One month, I think I actually spent almost the entire day at work in a meeting, which didn't leave me with much inspiration since I can't take pictures of much of anything at work. Anyway, one thing I've been thinking is that it might be worthwhile for me to try to specifically use different cameras for 10 on 10s vs. always going with my cell phone camera. While convenient, it is limited in some respects and I think using it is contributing partially to the boring feeling as well (although all day meetings aren't conducive to 10 on 10's no matter which camera I use.) I'm not sure if I have a camera for each month or that I'd want to carry some of them with me some days. Maybe I could also do something like use a certain lens or macro filters only. I also am very excited/amused/feeling kinda awesome about the idea of shooting a roll of film for a projects like 10 on 10. Alrighty, so, 10 on 10 this month, shot with my the Samsung Mythic camera, once again.


my sweet rat turns 3 years old this week!! : overcast & rainy days can be fun to walk in since more people stay inside/in cars : the light also quickly changes on these days and I wish I could go outside and shoot photos all day instead : I purchased this color to force myself out of my nail color comfort zone. After 3 days of pink nails, I had to add some more color*. I like that they look bird eggs : sigh, the kind of day I really wish I was out taking pictures : lunch time! : lunch time!! : time warp to evening..... : it was super windy on my walk home. tomorrow there shall be more layers :  stop on the cold walk home

*I really like Zoya nail polish and only use it now. It's was one of the few nail polishes studied that claimed to be free of various chemicals that was actually free of mentioned chemicals! They have lots of awesome colors and it lasts amazingly long on my nails. If you create your account through one of those links above, you'll also get a coupon for another free bottle.


  1. Oh that first shot is creepy good! Love the cloud shot as well. Have a great weekend, and thanks for the peek into your day.

  2. these photos are great... love the rat and the photo of the shadows (people crossing the street)... thanks for sharing!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE the shadows! There is something about it that almost makes me giggle when I look at it. I also love the nails. They are the bees knees. I am taking a one month online photography class and am very excited about it. You, me and a certain aunt of ours should one day get together and just have a photography vacation!
