Milford Cemetery

2

I Took some shots in Milford Cemetery last weekend.

I really enjoy cemeteries because they are one of the only places I feel calm. I don’t really know why.

I’m fairly happy with the shots, but still can’t wait to get my new camera next month.

School

So I’ve been doing fairly well in school so far.  There are some things I would like to start doing; like giving myself some extra time to do certain kinds of assignments, like submissions; so I decided that’s something I’ll start doing because it’s smart.

grades 2I’m pulling over a 4. because I attended a webinar and for my time they gave us extra credit.  (lol)  I managed to get some other credits to transfer over from previous college classes, so my next class will be an actual photography class, which I’m stoked about.

I don’t know.  School and my sobriety seems to be the only two things I can control right now.  It is what it is.  Everything else is a “deal with it as it comes because its all I can do” thing; And I’ll do just that.

This next submission will be especially hard for me regarding the topic.  This is the image I chose as a three-part submission.

123                             Tomoko Uemura in Her Bath, Minamata, 1972, W. Eugene Smith

I have to dissect it, and write about the meaning of the artwork based solely on it’s subject matter, style, and its visual construction (art elements, design principles, compositional strategies). (per assignment instructions)

Anyone that knows me knows why it will be hard for me.  I think this is one of the most beautiful images I have ever seen.  Although it will be cathartic, I am looking forward to it, I guess, in a weird way. My first part is in, so we will see what my Professors notes say.

Anyways today is day 13. For some reason I think I’ve been off a day for a day or two, but none the less it’s 13! 🙂

It is 2:07 am, and I hope today will be decent when I wake.  I’m not taking any shit from anyone, I know what I want, and I’m excited about my future.  Could be worse.

Love yourself.

GOLD KEY LAKE

100_1110I took these pictures over the weekend at Gold Key Lake. It’s the private lake in my neighborhood that I live in, and it’s beautiful. People go canoeing and boating and the lake is hooked to a restaurant further up closer to my house.

I love living in this neighborhood.  It’s safe, and there is never a shortage of wildlife and nature to photograph. I will definitely miss it when I go back to Michigan in the Spring.
