I like this photo. Despite the large over-saturation burn in the middle, and the lens shake.
i don't know why, but I do.

I'm going back through and changing the images. I'll do em all eventually, but it's a bit tedious, and frankly I have pleeenty of other stuff to do.
As for the last picture. It's a reflection in cloudy glass. It's a picture of my shoe because that's what was in frame when I saw it. And If you don't like the color...frankly, I agree with you. That is one ugly bathroom.

My understanding was, I could apply the changes to the watermark in lightroom. export said images to flickr, and replace said images.
Which is true, as far as that goes. But it made new image posts. Instead of modifying the old images.
which means every fucking photo in my block? EVERY SINGLE GODAMN ONE? Is not showing.
Now, do I re-post, or edit...guh.
Bubblegum chick Steve : Yeah. That's why I leave it there. I just want people to know "oh hey, it came from that blog, I should go check it out"
Deep Thought: I don't really want to do any sort of massive watermark in the middle, or anything. if people are going to re-post the work, they are going to re-post the work. And it's whiteish gray. Not exactly a bright color.
Adplus: So maybe a slightly larger font size, at a higher transparency?
Mustang Steve : Copyright laws do exist, lawsuits just aren't my style. But that's not why I have the watermark. I just want people who save and re-post or link my image to include the link on the image, so f if anyone sees it and goes "hey, that's cool" they will know where to go to see more.
The Loon: I add the watermark as part of the export process. I'm not going to spend the time it would take...I know it sounds lazy. And hey. I am lazy. But to customize the watermark for each image requires thought. "oh, it won't look so bad here" and "it should be this color or that color".
I'm not posting my images on the internet without ANY kind of watermark. This is kinda slim protection as it is. What do you suggest i do? Any reasonable ideas will be considered.
So she's decided to start installing Denim. It's a great noise canceler, it's healthier, and it's more expensive. She's already payed for it. i go out and what do I see laying beside the house? Cheep fiberglass. Which is not healthy, not as good a noise insulator, AND about 30% cheaper.
On the upside, I just earned myself a couple months of free rent for catching it!

I'm sure one or two of the pictures I took can actually be posted here, too. I had a bit of a adlib photoshoot with a friend of mine in a couple of closed off side streets.
Working on figuring out what's good, what's crap, and so on. Might or might not have anything new up tonight.

See, I go into dollar stores all the time. Cheep candy, glowsticks, disposable tools, artfaggy shit. I get most of my bandages and such from there as well, for that matter.
This is a photo I took at a check out line a while back. You have condoms. Pregnancy tests, Eye drops, hangover cure, and pain pills. And various normal things. In the impulse buy section.

Taken about a week or so back at a street festival.
Someone just asked today wither or not a photograph was taken by me. The answer is yes. As yet, the only material posted NOT by me is that youtube video a few days ago. If I post something that is NOT copyright my own damn self, I will say so.
This is a personal photography blog, more than anything else. I imagine it will stay that way. Every image I post I have the full legal right to...as I generated it myself.

Interesting group of people I've found so far. So many different talents and interests. A wide community, and all so very friendly.
Thank you all for your support and friendship. It's good to meet people that are so..you know. open to new people!

Yet another image from the walk. I haven't really had time to go out and shoot today.
I might tomorrow, we'll see. My old landlord delivered a few items to me today, including a few of my old photo-props, so I might look into getting a model to shoot with. We'll see how that works.

So, to tide you over, something that's been floating around the laptops hard drive from the 4'th of July.
I was on my way down to the Berkeley Marina to photograph fireworks on the 4'th...didn't go so well. But as I was walking, riiight as I reached the train tracks, I saw this....Guy was just a little over eager.
