With the new revamping of Flickr I was inpsired to go back and take a look at some of the old photos that I once displayed there. I havent used Flickr in some time and every time I think of going back there, the first thought that pops into my mind is that I should delete it all and start fresh. If I ever start at all. Then I get there and start looking through my old photos and my old style and I really, really like what I see. I like the photographer that I used to be.
I like the photos that I took when I was just reintroducing myself to the love of having a camera in my hands. A cheap camera, at that. I’ve often wondered if I should just sell my Canon and go back to a smaller, inexpensive camera, because I’ve thought on more than one occasion that my photos took a downward spiral about the same point that I bought my Canon 50D. Looking back on the early Flickr photos, I can only support this thought.
But it gets worse.
It seems to me, the more I learn about ‘proper’ technique…..the less I like my photos. When I was point and shooting, and using Picasa for simple edits, and enjoying what I was doing….there you have it. I was enjoying what I was doing. There was no Lightroom. There were no high expectations of being followed by Photographer circles in Google Plus. There were no thoughts of grandeur of one day someone, somewhere seeing one of my photos and taking it to new ‘plus’ or ‘likes’ heights.
Now, there’s just too much thought. And I don’t like it.
Back to basics. In fact, less than basics.

…….. It’s always a good idea to store your paper towel underneath your coffee maker. That way, when you make a full pot of coffee and forget to put the carafe in place, the paper towel is proactive and helps you clean up.

Nope, shots from the crapper!
In an effort to shoot, no matter where, no matter what, I took my Canon to the bathroom with me this morning. Yes, the bathroom. Some take a magazine, their iPhones, I took my camera.
And here are the stunning results:
First, let’s start with this one, because I’m never, EVER, allowed to go to the bathroom by myself:
Then, this one. At least she has the common decency to look away and pretend she isn’t watching you poop.
These top two photos are dedicated to Bron. <3
This is fun. These souvenirs have been in this bathroom since our entire family went to Florida after Christmas one year. It was the last trip that we all went on together as a family. I miss those days.
Side note: No, the hair inside and the dust outside are only souvenirs of my life, not our trip.
Glancing over here, this light bulb has been burnt out for over a week and none of the other 3 people in this house bother to care enough to change it out.
Having said that, is it really any wonder that this is my last photo?

Looks like last night’s raccoon found the garbage bag that contained the broken glass.

…or trying to avoid NOT doing stuff.
Also, it’s super weird to have baby food in my fridge again.
