182-200 /366, slowly healing

July 21, 2012
some major catch-up, and trying to heal.
maybe one of these days I’ll write something good, let my heart spill onto the internet
you know, so you don’t have to put up with me being so vague anymore.
but for now, here’s an extra long, jumbled up post to make up for it.

156-168/366, light will come again

June 21, 2012
from “with my head in the sand” [credit]

Really, I have. I’ve also been wanting to clear my head, and writing, well… that’s just what I needed. I wanted answers, I wanted reason, I wanted drive. I wanted some kind of motivation that I knew I wasn’t going to get.  Being in the city clouds my head, mind you… I enjoy the diversity, the architecture and the million “awesome photo” opportunities. 

This week’s been tough, there’s been a lot of looking back, and trying to move forward. but as everyone is trying to do everything for everyone else, emotions are high, most logic is gone… and I’ve gone into a kind of panicked state. George is picking up on it I’m sure… and right now, it feels like the world around me (well, mostly my family) is shaking. Like everything is unstable and turned up, so here I am, using my computer as a base. I think this could potentially grow into a bad habit, but it works for this project.

Every time I look at a rear view mirror, I read the bottom, objects in mirror are closer than they appear… which takes me back to this picture, I’d seen where someone had written “change” in the mirror. Change is closer than it appears.  Pretty creative, but my rear view mirror mostly reflects how dirty my Dad’s car is. I should probably wash it for him. Maybe.

These next couple of photos are my favorite from this week, the rest are kind of… well, eh.
This first one, for the symbolism. “the light will come again” … it’s some lyric from some song I don’t actually know. It’s probably a lyric in a lot of songs, so I won’t try to go find out which one I’d heard it from… but I caught it, as a reminder to myself… things always get better. Maybe not in the same way, or as they were before… but they get better. 

 and below, this is my way-over-saturated San Francisco. This is as close as I’ve gotten to “street photography” (which someday I’d like to try… someday). I just liked the colors, it was *big surprise* normally foggy this week, so my photos all had that foggy haze to them, so many of them are over saturated, a little.

this architecture, below… this is my favorite part of San Francisco. Where else do they make contemporary, victorian style architecture look modern? No where that I’ve ever been. I could never live in the city (I’m saying this now, but watch it happen)… but I love to take pictures of it.

and last but not least, there is no where else will you find this much wifi on a bridge. I opened the wifi pannel and BAM, the list continues forever… this was nearing the Toll area by the bay bridge (leaving the city)… I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw it. Crazy, right?

I also have some awesome webcam pictures of myself and Ava… but I won’t upload them 😉 So I’ll just tease you… but hey, here’s some foggy pictures that I thought were okay (out of the 512 that I took…) I just didn’t like the grey froggy-ness of it all. But that’s San Francisco for you 😉

I miss David…. I wish I could talk about him without getting choked up.
