Week 12: Self Portrait

This will be the only self portrait I post during this project. Today I participated in The Big Climb to raise money for Lymphomia & Leukemia; 1,311 steps up to the top of Columbia Tower. I finished in a little over 20 minutes. This is me after the race with the tower in the back. Gotta love my double chin :)

Week 12: 1,311 steps - no problem

Week 11 - Fisheye

Impulse purchases are the best. In Glazer's on Thursday to pick up some supplies they had some Lomography Fisheye 2 cameras so I picked one up. Had a bit of fun shooting with it over the weekend. I do need to get used to the framing of it and remember to turn on the flash. Many of the shots were too dark even though it was 800 ISO film.

The photo below is of one of the lovely trees in bloom on Boston street. I love the look of it just not what it does to my allergies.

You can see more of my fisheye photos on my Flickr stream

Week 9: The Kittehs

I can't believe I am 9 weeks into this project and haven't yet posted any photos of the new additions to my family. I adopted Tag and Koda in the beginning of January, they were supposedly a "bonded pair." Not sure I agree with that. They don't seem to spend any time with one another unless they are fighting. As a result I am unable to get a photo of the two of them together. So for week 9 I am posting 2 photos one of each it wouldn't be fair if I just posted one of them.

Introducing Tag.
I'm tired of playing
Tag is polydactyl although you can't see it in this photo. He was named because he likes to follow me around, as I write this he is sitting at my feet. He's not big into being petted or sitting on laps, however if I am standing he loves to be held. Tag adores this feather, he actually does backflips over it.

Introducing Koda.
Sleepy Kitty
Koda's name was suggested by my friend Liz. Her suggestion was actually to name one Koda and the other Chrome, however Tag was a more fitting name for the little guy. Koda is trying to become a lap cat, she will sit on the couch next to me every now and then she'll put a paw on my lap to test the waters. Koda's favorite toy is a ball of paper.

Both photos were taken with my lensbaby.
