Prompted 365 (2011)

Category

In my last 365 post I mentioned I started a new job and also had a fight with food poisoning. The heat took an extra step in zapping me of my energy, so I found myself behind on the project. I really had no interest in picking up a camera and even less interest in sitting down to a computer to edit the photos. I didn’t even try to think of interpretations for the prompts. But, finally, I am caught back up. I’m determined not to give up now that I’m getting closer to the end (December 31)! 13 July:Growth This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the prompt. I was in a rut and just took a random photo that day. 14 July: Solution How to relax after a busy day at work 16 July: Redesign 17 July: Two Roads 18 July: Illusion I’ve lost quite a bit…

I was hoping to have another blog post before this batch of Prompted 365 because I’m starting to find these photos incredibly uninteresting. I’m very sorry if you do too! I’m limiting which photos I post so that you’ll get to see only the best rather than all 365. July marks my entering into the second half of the project! It’s really draining, and my last week of photos have been pretty awful (truth be told, I haven’t even taken the last four days’ worth). But I’m determined not to quit at this point, so I’m searching for inspiration and energy to complete it.  It’s just one silly photo every day, but it really is tough to keep on track. Good news: I got a job! I’m working retail at a large chain bookstore and am having a blast so far. Eight hours hunting down books is hard on my…

22 June: Trio Left to right: Agfa Billy Jgetar 8.8, Brownie Flash Six-20, & Brownie Hawkeye Flash 23 June: Walk 27 June: Clutter My kitchen bar drives me crazy, as it tends to accumulate clutter. When I took this picture, I had just gotten the mail and sorted it into piles. 28 June: Vivid My friend Courtney and a giant box of Nerds! 29 June: Discover 30 June: Plate 1 July: Plastic A Hello Kitty charm I have hanging from my camera 2 July: Kitchen Making me dinner!

12 June: Love Yes, you have already seen this photo! But I really wanted it to kick off this post. 13 June: Hidden I’m constantly finding remnants from a past life scattered throughout my house. From February 2009, I believe this is a ticket stub came from Ljubljana, Slovenia. The internet tells me “povratna odrasli” means “adult return,” so I think this might be from a funicular that took us up to the castle (and then returned us to the bottom, naturally). This reminds me of my photo for “Doorway” 14 June: Blue Joseph and I awoke the morning of the 14th to find his car window smashed in. We don’t usually park in the driveway but have been having trouble with our garage door opening, so this was really bad timing. The thieves took his work computer but thankfully overlooked both our GPSes and didn’t touch my car. We…

5 June: Old My dad’s old Nikon SLR, which I’m having a blast with. As I mentioned before, it was pulled out of a closet, and I’m trying to give it a new life. I had my first roll developed already! Unfortunately, Walgreens was unable to give me my digitals, and my scanner does not to the photos justice. I’m going to mail my next roll to Mpix. 6 June: Pattern A baby blanket I’m making for a friend. At this point I wasn’t quite sure how I liked the pattern, but I’m nearly done now and think I like the way it came out. 7 June: Dirty Laundry day. 8 June: Sunset 9 June: Big Big for me at least. Joseph surprised me with an iPhone, and I’m absolutely in love with it! I was shocked because I’d never even thought of getting a smart phone. But I had…
