Not the best but the only shot I took today - whilst on a "not date".
A creative challenge I've set myself. Can I take a picture every day that says something about me - my life, my art, my friends. Will I last a year or will I lose interest after the first few weeks? There's only one way to find out.
There's a beautiful mural that's been painted on the window of a disused building which I pass every morning on my way into Uni.
The overall mural itself is eye-catching and brightens up the area, but it's this section I like the most. It has lots of really interesting lines and movement within it.
This was a gift from my lovely friend MB that I was allowed to open last night.
It's a gorgeous glass bauble with spikes facing inside and a gorgeous bubble sheen to it.
Because I spent alot of today travelling and finishing my Uni essay, I didn't have alot of time to take a photo, but when I have such a beautiful object, it doesn't matter.
Today has been the first day of reading week. So I've been knitting. I've got a chance to get cracking with some Yule gifts, this being one of them. I have a pair of socks to finish, this scarf, a couple of other scarves and some other bits I can't write about in case someone gets nosey.
I've been chained to my books today writing a 1500 word essay. It's been a bit of a slog but once I got sat down and started writing, it only took me a day. Thank God it's a topic I love and know a little bit about. I've just got to do the bibliography and email it to my old tutor who has agreed to give it the once over before I had it in next Monday.
To celebrate I'm off to Scala tonight to watch The Dodos. More jumping around and singing at the top of my voice. At least I have this coming week off.
This is a view of the roof just outside the top floor of the library at Uni. I find the lines beautiful. There's a symmetry that is very pleasing to me. The angles create interest and break things up. There is a certain unpredictability that the odd angles introduce and there is also a suggestion of something hanging together.
Oh God I've been at art school too long!
I know this is late but I ended up crashing at some mates' last night after the trauma of Bonfire night and of course I couldn't post my photo until I got home.
This was a tricky shot for me because it meant that I had to let go of some one's hand long enough to be able to take the picture. That just wasn't going to happen. To say I'm frightened doesn't do the irrational fear justice. Anyway, I managed to get this shot from the back of the pub and under cover. I know it's out of focus but that's what I like about it. To me it has a lot of textile potential.
