Project 365; Day 58





Today my dad and I went to down town Cleveland at Public Square where there was a "Cleveland Tea Party" protesting against Obama and taxes and stuff.
So I finally took some pictures of something other than random things I find around my house xD YAY

It was freaking cold. It was 50 out when we left so i was just wearing a hoodie but by the time we left the protest it was 30! Soooo yeah. o_o

Project 365; Day 56



Shhh, dont tell my mom i posted pictures of her ;]

Anyways, she was just bugging me while we were eating at her party that I still hadnt printed off her wall pictures.
I played along :P
But waaaaay back in like January I told my dad I wanted to FINALLY print them out :P and then give them to her as a present

I got them the day before her party and they were SO AWESOME OH MY GOSH
Ive never held an 8x10 of something *I* took.
sooooo it was cool :P
i wasnt really happy with Sarahs because it was blurry
and mine could have been better, but I think my mom likes them :]
her mouth dropped open and she was all surprised but i didnt post that one because her eyes were closed, go figure :P

yessss, only 10:20

Project 365; Day 55


This was my mom's present from my dad.

Project 365; Day 54


So I panicked and pulled out the poster board today :P
I forgot to paint on it so I actually do have a plain white poster board now, lol
it does have some little bended parts but its not a big deal
YAY. thanks to Brian for giving away his secret ;]

Project 365; Day 53


Whoo, I got all busy and didn't have time to post so I'm posting two more today and two tomorrow
Anyways, this was a shiny little handle thing on a counter door at the place my mom's birthday party was. Since it was shiny, i noticed it :P and had to take a picture.

For my mom's birthday my dad printed off some of those black and white portraits I was doing and that was my gift to her, and I guess from the rest of my siblings too but I did the work (minus the printing) ;D

More on that laterrrrr
Here I go staying up till 10:30 again -_- lol

Project 365; Day 51


I guess I should stop staying up till 10:30/11ish working on pictures xD
But you know, I've noticed i fall asleep faster, and sleep deeper when i stay up ;]
its kind of nice, lol

anyways i was in two grocery stores today :P and i took my camera with me
i only took a handful of pictures, mostly of peppers and milk jugs xD
i forgot that i wanted to take pictures of the asparagus because they were up by the mirrors in the veggie aisle and they looked cool. bummer.
however, its crazy, i started noticing people and imagining their portraits in my mind. i didnt talk to any of the people who caught my eye though. im still working on taking the camera everywhere ;] one step at a time lol

anyways tomorrow is a busy day, its my moms birthday party so i should go to bed :]

Project 365; Day 48


This is Lightning.
She always looks like this, lol
Whenever anyone pets her or touches her or anything she starts growling and meowing or hissing at you like she's about to bite your face off xD Im not sure if she's just got a chronic case of cranky-old-lady-cat-syndrome or if thats how she expresses enjoyment but she is ALWAYS annoyed, all the time :P
So I took a picture of her.

Project 365; Day 47


Finally, today I bought an iPod :]

im just scared of breaking it now x3

Project 365; Day 46


THEN i went to a church on the 15th where my mom and some other ladies make cards
I made like three cards but then i took Joshua (hes my buddy this week i guess) outside because he was bored
and i took some cool photos

Theres this lady in Oklahoma, "Pioneer Woman" and she posted a blog on her photography section about how she changes the colors of her desaturated pictures
only she uses some fancy photoshop but i figured out how to use it in gimp :D

Desaturate your photo
then make a white layer
use the paint bucket and drop some really bright color on there
then in your layers box on the mode drop down menu pick screen
and then play with opacity.
its pretty suhweeet


this was a really bright red


bright blue



awesome, no? :D
im kinda proud of myself xD

and i also messed around with pics of josh too


this was purple





Project 365; Day 45


then was Valentine's day
i didnt take this on Valentine's day :P
buuuut. the pictures i did take this day i didnt use for a 365 so im using this

Project 365; Day 44


February 13th was my 17th birthday
my parents got me a backdrop holder-upper thing xD and some solid color sheets to use as backgrounds.
as soon as i get around to ironing them, they'll be even more awesome :]
So here is my little brother, Joshua, demonstrating it for the first time :P it was quite random so i didnt have time to wash his face but the background looks nice xD

Project 365; Day 43


This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
It's time to make our move, I'm shakin' off the rust
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, can you see what I see?

They're tryin' to come back, all my senses push
Untie the weight bags, Some never thought I could
Steady feet, don't fail me now
Gonna run till you can't walk
Something pulls my focus out
And I'm standing down

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, you don't need

What you need, what you need, what you need

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be
Oh, do you see what I see?

- Stop And Stare by OneRepublic

wow that song makes this seem all depressing and stuff xD
i just randomly decided to take a picture of my feet and then thought of the song later, lol
but i like it so much so i posted the whole thing :]

please pardon the dirty wall. thats what happens when 7 people and a dog live in a house :P walls get dirty

Guessss who is turning 17 tomorrow?
meeee :]
that is all.

Project 365; Day 42


and of course the obligatory vintage-y one xD


I have seen the rain
I have felt the pain
I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
I don't know where I'm going
I don't even know where I've been
But i know I'd like to see them again.
We have seen the rain, together
We have survived the pain, forever
Oh it's good to home again
Its good to be with my friends
Oh it's good to be home again
It's good to feel that rain

- I Have Seen The Rain by Pink

if you didnt see this on Project Pentad, I'd like to post it again x3
its kind of my favorite.


Im enjoying the beautiful weather while it lasts :P At least it isnt snow and at least its not 20 degrees outside. It was actually up to 60 today, lol

Hey, what do you think of borders? i was feeling lazy and didnt add them today xD
but do think borders look better?

This the baby girl that I babysit. She's absolutely adorable :] but she didnt sit still long enough for me to get many good pictures of her, lol. And the light wasn't great. So she was getting sleepy and sat still for a few seconds aaaand i got lucky and happened to push the button xD

Dust off your Converse, its time to save the universe


Project 365; Day 39


Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night

- Stay Awake (dreams only last for a night) by All Time Low

Its a little noisy, xD but I think this is the best moon picture I've ever gotten. :] so I'm pretty happy with it despite its noise, lol
it wasnt actually that dark out but i was trying to be fast and i got lucky messing with shutter speed or something xD

Project 365; Day 38



I'm thinking of doing the song thing either once a week at the least because I have pictures I want to post that have nothing to do with songs xD
