Some dusty bits, but eh.
Taken up the ever magic lane across from my house.

Near my house, up some lane. It's sheep's wool tangled across barbed wire; got a few nice shots from it actually. The first scan of 3 new films I took within the last month. Was playing with the aperature and hey presto, I actually managed some ok shots. Go me!

A quick scan of a very old picture, taken in a very old house that hadn't been lived in for 10 years. It still had old plates & bits & pieces lying around. I did crop the top off this one as it was very obviously blurry & too white. It looks much better like this methinks. I lost the original full scan & I can't be arsed scanning again sooo no before & after. For I am lazy.

I've been going to Mount Stewart since I can remember. And I found the name carved into an old stump, overgrown with moss and lichen and all sorts of other things, when I was about 14 or so. Since then, I've been hard pressed to resist taking a new photo of it every time I pass it. It's one of those things I'll always be drawn to, I guess.

This one also managed to go through the scanner with little incident, and hardly any speckly bits. Or the varied tones are just covering them up. Eh, either way.

I recently procured a negative scanner. Beast of a thing. Can scan up to 7200 dpi, rather quickly. Lots of sliders and buttons and general things to play with too. A little frustrating in the beginning; I admit I did get a little pissed off at it once or twice, for not doing as I wanted. But, I think I'm getting the hang of it, and know I'll appreciate all those little buttons soon enough.

This was the first image I picked out, at random, to test the scanner old picture, taken in 2006 I think. Not great; was for a college project on 'texture, shape, and something something'. I can't remember, too long ago. But it did the job.

Well, I think I've made up my mind  on what this shall be for...random bursts of creativity? Yes please.

Frequently, I get bored in the bath. I like them; they are relaxing. But...I get bored. And usually I have my phone handy.

The camera on it is decent enough, has a macro setting which is fancy. And I confess, I've grown fond of the 'negative' effect as a clickable feature, instead of a photoshop after-thought. I love the blue-ish green gray it turns flesh coloured things, and how it as an effect can exaggerate textures and reflections. I used it heavily about a year ago, and got some nice shots out of it, especially as I was playing with the
flash & reflections to create some interesting images. Having used one of these older pictures in my previous post here, I thought...why not? It's easy enough to revisit. I might even get some more avatars out of it, hehe.

So, this is the result of a slightly bored self feeling a little creative. No nudity ;) I don't believe I've ever been that bored!

Woo hoo! Dreamwidth account, I has one!

Thank you [personal profile] iosiren for the codeage ;)

Who knows what will go here. A mix, probably, of many things. I haven't quite decided what should be assigned where. It'll take a day or two. Or fourteen. This is me, I don't know when I'll make my mind up.
