I’ve been in a bit of quandary for the last several weeks regarding the LOTD posts.
When I started them, my original intention was to:
- document my seemingly endless inventory of costumes and clothing
- work on my photography skills
- work on my Photoshop skills
Since I started the LOTD posts, I’ve taken classes in both photography and Photoshop, so I hope I’m improving!
I have completed (mostly) my inventory sorting and so I have also begun using the LOTD posts to show off goodies I pick up at current events.
With those posts, I try not to edit the photos too heavily, because I want the items to appear as they do in-world.
So I’ve been playing a sort of balancing game, trying to balance my desire to show some items ‘as is’ and to also get to play around with all the fun tools in Photoshop. 😀
My lovely husband even bought me a drawing tablet in the hopes that I could improve my editing further.
I’m still learning to use it – thank goodness I have an artistic daughter who knows how!
Around LOTD #100 or so, I started writing little story snippets to go along with the photos.
Because I’m easily bored, I am feeling the need to change things up with the LOTD posts yet again.
So instead of short little stories I write, some of the posts will be based on the writing of others.
Perhaps I’m also feeling a need to distance myself from the posts because my new mesh head doesn’t feel like ‘me’ yet.
In the meantime, I hope you find something to enjoy in the LOTD posts. 😀
Without further ado, LOTD #162:
“I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself. ”
~ Jane Eyre, pg. 239
Jane Eyre has long been one of my favorite books – the epitome of a Romantic novel.
Written by a woman pretending to be a man in order to be taken seriously in a patriarchal society.
How far we have not come.
