The Little Bird makes another Photo Friday entry, based purely on her expression:
This was shot the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The other pics I took between my last Photo Friday and this weekend just weren’t up to snuff. Also, some are trapped on the camera, which is dead, and I can’t find the charger. Rather than busting my ass playing catch-up, I’ll get what I can posted when I can and then get back on track.
Meanwhile, I’m already planning out next year. I’m going to challenge myself a little harder, and I may even put photos on a separate 500px account to separate my attempts at more artistic photography from all the random snapshots and karate pics I post all the time. The creative stuff should stand out from the candids, and that’s hard to pull off right now.
I try to think visually, and it’s good exercise because I spend so much time thinking in prose and narrative. I feel pretty good about comic scripts I’ve written, but artists are always able to take what I’ve written and make it so much better. I’d like to be a little closer to their level in the future, and I didn’t inherit my old man’s skill at drawing so I’ll need to work harder at the photography.
Who knows, it may even be more helpful when it comes time to start writing movie scripts.
