Dark Side of the Moon
I haven’t had such a joyous time taking photographs for my assignment… particularly the last one. Today I finished the second assignment, which wasn’t as bad as I thought. Turns out the roll of film I took last week wasn’t all that great, and all the good shots were in the roll I finished up yesterday. Everything I printed was in my most recent roll. I have a research assignment to do (which I haven’t gotten very far in) and one more assignment… no idea why it’s shaking my socks off in fear. My focus is music in general, I’m playing around with the idea a little as my tutor suggested to depict music abstractly through photography, and I’m not sure if I want to make my guitar more of a focus or just have music in general. It just occurred to me that I can photograph my vinyl records. /eee
I haven’t had the opportunity to take good shots because I haven’t been around during the day. During the day and when lighting is best to take photos, I’ve been out… like the weekend, my mum wanted to take me and my brother to the markets and shops to buy some clothes. It’s all good though, I did get some stuff. :D I got two pairs of jeans.
I generally hate jeans. A lot. I refuse to wear pants and always want to wear a skirt. Admittedly, a short one. Sometimes, with tights or leggings. I just despise jeans so much because I can never find the right size for me. Because of my thin figure but muscled legs, anything that fits my legs will most likely fall down at the waist, and anything that fits there will probably cut off circulation to my legs. Fan-fucking-tastic. Right. So anyway, I found two pairs of jeans – one white and one peach. They fit so comfortably so I was really happy about that.
I also got lots of new shoes. Having exceptionally tiny feet means great difficulty in finding shoes… but I did find some nice shoes over the weekend. I got zebra print boots, and my mum got a pair to match. I also got some red ballet flats. I used to hate those shoes thinking they were just an insult to real ballet shoes (and this coming from a ballerina…), but now that I found ones that actually fit, it’s quite nice. :) I have been loving the colour red so much lately… I even got a red handbag. :D
Well, as I said, the lighting at night is pretty shit, and I guess tomorrow I’ll find out how my shots in the dark turned out. Probably really black. :( Photography is getting very tedious. I enjoy it but having it all crammed into winter break is a bit hectic. At the same time, I wish university was structured differently so we wouldn’t have so many subjects to work on during semester. University is crazy. Perhaps I’m just over it, since it’s my final year and I’ll be finishing up soon.
Some time next semester I’ll have to apply for a Masters degree, and I hope I get in. I think I need one of those turning points, those moments in life when you just need a bit of a change of direction, not too drastic, but comfortable enough for you.
