Probably the most important is about myself.
1. I used to be a 'leader'. Now I am more of a follower. I say this because I can't seem to get anything accomplished unless I have an assignment. Someone telling me what to do and a dead line. I've always needed a deadline it seems. I first realized this when my scrapbook designers group was required to do two collaboration kits per year. I had no problem getting going. A color palette was supplied and a theme. Now if I was to come up with something on my own, I'd be dead in the water. Hence I have not produced much this year (or last year). I've made some brushes and texture packs, which seem to be more my thing. So I should probably concentrate my focus there. I haven't had the urge to do many scrapbook pages anyway.
I've so totally enjoyed my evolving in still life photography through Kim's Bestill52 and the Still life class. But again, assignments. Some get done, some don't. But it seems those are the only things staring me in the face. And they are the type of little projects that don't take days and weeks. You can achieve a fulfilling accomplishment in a few hours. Ahhhh, so much for instant gratification.
So what am I to do with this information? Give myself assignments? I've tried that, apparently I don't take myself seriously enough. I think it's because I don't believe in myself enough. Or that requires some sense of responsibility and that, it seems, is what I DON'T want. To not have to answer to anyone. Am I confused? Or an I making some progress here? Perhaps some new hormones and and new thyroid might help.
2. We've had so much rain lately my silly zinnias are spouting their seeds on the flowers. I've not seen such a crazy thing before.
3. I found this 'scan' I did a few years back while cleaning out my old laptop. It reminded me of the dark organic things the Bestill52 class is doing. I added Kim's magic texture to it and some color like she described on Tuesday. I wasn't too thrilled with it 4 years ago, but I really like it now.
4. This sweet yellow bird sang it's heart out in my long gone sunflowers. A Wilson's Warbler I'm told, by Kathy, my birding friend. It wasn't scared of me so I snapped away. I had been shooting the zinnias and caterpillars with my 100 lens. I was praying the whole time that one would turn out. I'm sure he's just passing through so I will be keeping an eye out for more travelers.
5. I took a walk through the yard and collected green leaves and dried stuff. I processed the leaves with Snapseed and love all the versions I made for different reasons. Do you have a favorite?
Here's to a great weekend!
Linking up with Kim for Friday Finds.
