An attempt at artsy photography.


The other day, I picked up two pair of my shoes from where I had randomly left them after removing them from my feet. I put them on the stairs so I could take them up and put them away the next time I needed to go up. Cuz I’m lazy like that.

One fell and landed rather appealingly inside another. I was a little drunk, probably, and thought the scene looked sorta cool, so I went and got my iPhone to try some Hipstamatic pics.

Actually I know I was a little drunk because I couldn’t remember my favourite settings of lens, film, flash – and I’ve never bothered to save the groupings like best. Because I’m also lazy like that. So I tried this:

And that wasn’t right because I hate the stupid date-stamp. Maybe it’s cute if you were born in 1990, but 1982 is a year that I remember and it didn’t look like that.
So I tried this:

This is the one iDJ likes. But no, it wasn’t exactly what I was going for. So I tried again with a third group of settings…

…and apparently I had been standing there playing with camera settings too long, because I got photobomed by Lokii.

  1. I know what you mean about 1982. I saw one of those things the other day that said : I still think 1990 is 10 years ago.
    I had to count it on my fingers to see what made that funny….

  2. Yep, the last one is perfect!

    Caught in mid-meow, too. He’s making a statement, clearly. Probably something about attention that should be directed at petting or his dish, instead of shoe photos.

    I like the color shot, too.

    • He’s a talker! It was affection he was after, as always ๐Ÿ™‚ Stand still in this house for a few minutes and you have a cat staring up at you saying, ‘hi! Hi! Hiiiiiiii! Pick me up.’

      If you ignore them, they leap into your arms. We have to always be prepared for this… turning your back is a mistake! I really need video of this. I really need to figure out how to upload videos, first.
