Okay I blogged 2 years ago about how I wish someone would make my life into a movie and create the sountrack to it (following me around and cueing appropriate music at just the right moments like in the movies- it would make life os much cooler). I would to my "life" wishlist - a personal photojournalist. Please could I get someone to follow me around and take pictures of me and all the great moments of my life to look back on. Really make them artul, make them beautiful. So my whole life looks like glossy magazine ads. Capture that homemade bread so perfectly that you can smell it, catch the way the light sparkles on my sons crazy hair, make me look glamorous, the full technicolor spectrum of my paintings.
As I read blogs, I realize what a photographer I am NOT. I have never claimed to be one, but i realize how much I want to be one. I guess this means I need to get serious about 1. A new camera, 2. Learning how to use one and 3. How to really kick it up with post processing! I want better images to go with posts (especially now that I am blog slurping this into book form ,which totally legitimizes my blog as journalling- right, how can I publish my words with such mediocre photographs? I want my book to look cool after all!) I need to hire someone like Alissa (oh master of light and camera) to follow me around everyday from dawn until dusk beautifully capturing all the things in my life. As an artist I love the power of a good image. They say more than a thousand words.
So please if your interested in the job- do send your resume!
1. a new round of library books
2. actually feeling hot today
3. getting things done on my to-do list
