So the theme this week is “Rule of Thirds”. When looking for photography tips everywhere pretty much says to use this technique. If you would like to read about the technique more I point you in the direction of the wikipedia link, here. I went for a drive today out to Flatrock and found some great scenery but the light didn’t allow for great pictures. I ended up at a playground and just started shooting pictures of the empty swing, with this being my fave of the bunch. Too bad I didn’t do something like this for minimalist week!
Next week I think we have a plan in place so stayed tuned.
Here it is in all it’s nerdy glory. A few Stormtroopers would been nice as in the movie that’s what Luke & Leia are firing at when Vader strikes down Obi Wan. The Falcon opens up and there are a bunch of uber cool things on the inside that will no doubt make it into the blog down the road.
"Run Luke, run."
We have a box of toys for the odd time a child may come to the house. I’ll be honest, not a single child has ever played with any toys in it, yet I have used it for so many photos thus far this week.
I have a fun Rubik’s cube story, so it seems like the place to write it. As a child I was always fascinated with Rubik’s cube, but I could never figure out how to solve them. I will be honest, I was terrible at it.
Along came the era of YouTube and all my Rubik’s cube woes were to be solved by lovely online tutorials! I found a tutorial that was easy to follow and I really liked, and was slowly, over the process of several weeks trying to solve the Rubik’s Cube. I cannot remember how many patterns there were, but I was well on my way to solving it, I would say 75% completed. I remember I walked into the living room one day and my mother had picked up the Rubik’s Cube and said “Matt I was playing around with the Rubik’s Cube, but I couldn’t solve it.” All of my hard work ruined, and back to square one, since that day I have never tried to solve one again, but perhaps I will give it another go.
Any ways, that is my story. If you’ve read this much I found this Smurf with a green brush in the box, thought it would be a neat idea to show the Smurf painting the Rubik’s cube. I am really happy with the picture.
Non theme picture for me! I absolutely adore taking picture during sunrise and sunset. This is my first once of the season. It isn’t that great, as I was driving home and didn’t have my camera (mistake number one), so I had to run and get it and run back to the spot. When I get there I was about 15 minutes too late. I will remember for next time.
