Travel insurance is bought

I got an email from the company I bought my travel insurance for my trip in September, offering me 10% off another policy. It’s not a huge saving ($8) but it’s better than nothing.

I should be super excited about this trip seeing it’s only three months away but I’m not. I had already planned everything for my first trip but this time the only thing I’ve organised is my flights to L.A. I dunno… I shouldn’t be leaving the planning to the last minute like this. I have flights to and from Seattle to buy but I’m finding it very hard to get motivated to organise anything. I’ve already decided to do a bus trip from L.A to the Bay Area to visit Steve and that’s going to take a whole day but I still haven’t arranged anything with that either. However, I don’t know if I actually can.

Zero motivation to do anything. Don’t know what’s wrong with me. Sigh.

Today’s wanderings provided me with…

Today was such a beautiful day I decided it would be a waste to spend it inside. So out I went with my trusty beloved camera and took some shots. Took me a while to get my eye in and I seemed to be mostly attracted to shapes which didn’t really work as photos but perhaps I can use them as textures for other things. Still, I did get three photos I was happy with so I think that’s a pretty good result.

I’m really digging Reflection. Docklands isn’t my favourite place in Melbourne but who ever designed the car parks came up with some fantastic concepts.

I’m trying to get my creative mojo back. Things have been a bit tough for me recently and taking photos/being creative always makes me feel better because I feel like I’ve achieved something. I haven’t been getting a lot of comments on my photos recently but I’m getting a steady amount of views which is nice. Besides, my photography is only going to improve if I keep plugging away at it. It was very bad of me to put my camera down and not pick it up for months.

I have poor impulse control

Why?

Because I just bought…

The last few weeks haven’t been the best for me so I decided I deserved a treat. And it is almost xmas. But it’s not all about pleasing my ID because I’ll be paying it off over the next two months. Two months waiting for my latest Tim Sale pretty. Sigh. Money is going to be unbelievably tight but I’ll just have to be more careful about what I squander, I mean, spend my disposable income on in the next few months.

I wonder if I ask nicely enough if he’ll ink it for me.

Found this collection of bones abandoned in the gutter whilst walking home from my friends’ place. The bones were wired together which suggests that until recently they belonged to someone. I’m pleased with how they came out. I think the depth of field is really good, especially on the first one.

Bones aren’t something I’d normally photograph but the way these ones were arranged and the fact they’d been abandoned by someone made them cry out to photographed.
