Much of my weekend was spent in lighting like this. ”Oh, how romantic!” you say. I say, “Oh! How irritating!” Our power was out for all of Saturday, which meant that I could not do any work. And if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been just a little busy lately. So a day of work lost is more than a little bit annoying.
And now the wind is blowing noisily outside, and I can’t help but feel anxious that the power will go out again and I will lose more work time.
I am always on the lookout for interesting chairs to use as props for photography. Today I went out to MCC (the new one that is just furniture! It’s HUGE!) and I found this set of four magnificent chairs. I knew I wanted them immediately. Imagine my disappointment when just as I told the salesman I wanted them, I saw another couple testing out one of the chairs. ”Don’t worry! We only want one!” They said. What? Who just buys one from a whole set? Thankfully, the salesperson said it can only be sold as a set, and since they didn’t want all of them, I got it. Yes! The more I thought about it, the more I thought that I wanted them as my regular kitchen set. I have been thinking of repainting my table white (it’s just a plan table from Ikea, and the finish is really scratched up). Above is my plan for the chairs (forgive the crudeness of the mockup…I did it fairly quickly). Part of me is torn, because the chair in it’s original state matches my record player cabinet perfectly. However, they do need to be refinished (the varnish is quite sticky, and the fabric and stuffing needs to be replaced). And this is the most versatile of all my options. I can’t wait to start! (haha…when I find time between now and christmas… :S )
So….you may have noticed that I have not blogged for a while.
I know you have noticed, because I noticed that I was still getting lots of hits per day. So you must have noticed.
I do have good reason for slacking off on my blog though!
In the past few weeks, I have done a wedding, an engagement session, a newborn session, 2 families, 1 portrait session and 1 mini child portrait session. In the next two weeks I have 2 family sessions, 1 musician and 1 portrait. Holy moly! I feel a little busy! On top of all that, I have been working overtime at getting my photography site done. (It is due to launch Jan. 1) The mini child portrait session was for the website (and that’s what I did today.) Here’s a picture I took after she left (as a filler image). It is (obviously) for the contact session of my website. Do you realize how difficult it was to find an old phone like that? Wow…I never thought they would be so hard to come by. I had Dave searching all over town yesterday while I was working. This was the only one…
Well, I can’t promise that I will be posting something regularly again till after Christmas, but this is a start!
