This was the longest week ever! I had an in-service day which honestly, I'd rather have my students! And also, we had our first conferences as well so that made for a late night. I was so excited about these prompts but because of the busyness of the week, I didn't think I'd have time to get them all. So I came up with an additional challenge for myself (like I don't have enough going on right now!) and decided to put my big girl camera away for this assignment and instead, use my iphone with my lens attachments I have for it. I had SO MUCH FUN doing this! I used three lenses: Macro, fish eye and wide angle.
Here are my interpretations:
Nature- My neighbor's tree is in all it's glory right now! I love the funkiness of the fisheye for this:
Cooking: I went to my sister's to hang out and to see Barkley Boy....only Barkley and his new humans weren't home :( I was sad, but we are trying for round 2 today. It's a tradition in our household to eat cheese popcorn while watching movies. As you can tell, the popper has many years under its belt!
Whimsical: This house was built by one of the Design Professors at UC's DAAP program. It's been around since I was little. It's right up the street from me and it makes me giggle every time I see it.
Vintage/retro: This theatre has been around a very long time. They've repaired the sign and now they have a ball that starts at the top of the 20th century and drops at the New Year's Eve party. It's an amazing staple in this community!!
Week's Best: Originally I thought I'd use my sister's bird house, but then when I was driving for my ritual morning coffee, I drove by the mushroom house and used that instead. I love the sun flare and how the bird house is nestled in the trees.
I didn't hear anything about my court date for MG, and being that next week is Diwali, that puts me at the week of Thanksgiving for the next possible time for me to maybe hear something. I keep praying and trusting. That's all you can do, right?
