Finally got to spend a few hours shooting today.  Walking is still pretty exhausting, but hopefully I can start getting some real posts going again.

The balcony above me was raining dead flowers while I was taking this shot.

No time this weekend to shoot and still lacking inspiration and the legs to carry me around the streets.

No time to shoot so here's a throw-away shot for the day (sorry)...

Igniting Match Study

A few days ago I set out to capture a match during its ignition.  This study turned out to be incredibly frustrating because I could never capture exactly what I wanted.  So, I give up.  Here is one of the ones I captured today (all color is as-shot):

Light Bulb Filaments

Yeah, I know I've already done this before, but I'm totally uninspired and failing miserably for the second straight day on the one assignment I've given myself.  On that cheerful note, here's some more light bulb filaments igniting:

Before I get drilled with questions... shot B&W with blue filter at high contrast. Additional contrast, sharpening, and hue added post. No added texture--that is the surface reflection and the texture from below the surface of the water.

No Unattended Blankets Before 4pm. Please.

Totally ignored my own advice in yesterday's post - got no sleep last night (every time I closed my eyes, an image of 'Big Baby' from Toy Story 3 popped into my head.  Terrifying.) so I went out to shoot the sunrise (which I somehow managed to be late to anyways).  Good news is I didn't fall into the ocean like the last sunrise I shot.

. . . No comment . . .

Possibly trying to do too much too soon - I think I walked a half-mile today but my legs feel like I ran a marathon.  Until I'm healthy, I think I should remind myself to...

Getting better--should be out shooting again soon.  Until then, here are a couple old shots (these formations were previously posted, but only in B&W):

Puppy Vs. Cat

Continuing with my Shots That Don't Require Me Moving From My Bed Series...

PUPPY after seeing me laying on couch, visibly ill and moaning in pain.

Appropriate response: (1) Grab every single toy from bin, carry it over to Mike and poke him with it to make him play tug-of-war. (2) If unsuccessful, eat any food or drink of his that he has nearby to make him respond (3) If unsuccessful, whimper and bark at him.  (4) When he finally gets up, run in circles until he decides to give chase.  (5) If unsuccessful still, just destroy one of his possessions.  That'll teach him.

Mike's response: Don't they call you things, "Man's best friend?"

CAT after seeing me laying in bed, visibly ill and moaning in pain.

Appropriate response: (1) Lay next to him at all times, only sleep when he is sleeping.  (2) If he suddenly moans-out in pain, lick him to try to calm him down.  (3) Do not eat anything unless he is out of bed to make sure he is never alone.

Mike's response: Interrupt your sleep with flash photography.

So, the one thing I've really wanted since falling ill has been beer and pizza. So, what do I get as a gift while still on bed-rest?  Beer, of course.  I'll have to wait 6-weeks to enjoy this one...

Went outside today for the first time in days...went about three feet to get this shot

Was going to shoot medicine again today as promised but didn't feel like putting all the damn pills back in their bottles.  So, closest thing to bed was a CD.

Way too sick....but the blog must go on!!
As long as I'm bed-ridden, prepare for weeks of shots of the exact same subject...
