Weekly Photo Projects, Week 6
Dreaming of summer
This past week was pretty easy for me. The theme for the black & white group was rule of thirds, which wasn't one of my favorites because I try to shoot that most of the time. What was difficult was finding something I wanted to shoot. I looked at my other photos and saw I had a drinks sub-theme going on, so I thought I'd continue it for week 6. I think this will probably be my last drink theme photo though because I don't have any other glasses that help convey the drink. Well, except for the champagne flutes. Hmm... wonder how I can fit them in a shot. The setup for this shot is the same as the ice cube shot, just a hand held flashlight.
It's a good sign
For once I had multiple options for the +Weekly Photo Project 2013 and our theme of Signs. While walking around I spotted a "Wine tasting here --->" sign which was in the running (always important to know where the tasting is), but I liked the wineries' actual sign better.

*Tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Is this thing even working? Do I even know how to do this anymore? Do I even want to do this? All good questions, with some (hopefully) being answer with this post. Meaning if you can see it, it's on and working. The other questions? Well, who knows at this point. But, if you're seeing this, congrats! You probably had the RSS feed (which may or may not still be working), or some other little service I was using over a year ago is still shooting this out to social media. What brought me back? Am I back?
What brought me back is easy. A couple days ago +Blogger released a, well, blog, detailing some new themes: https://blogger.googleblog.com/2017/03/share-your-unique-style-with-new.html. I didn't hate them, and in fact liked one (the one hopefully you see here) and I went poking around, and re-kicking the tires to see if anything else about Blogger had changed. On first glance, nothing else has changed, which is both good and bad.
Am I back?…
If you find yourself in the Eastern Sierra, I highly highly recommend taking a few hours and stopping by the Manzanar National Historic Site. It's tells the story of out not too distant past that we like to conveniently skip over. If you're not familiar with the significance of this site, this is where, shortly after the bombing of Hawaii by Japan in 1941, some 10,000 Japanese, most with US citizenship, were incarcerated. This site is one of ten sites around the country that would come to hold over 110,000 people, again most of which were US citizens, from 1942-1945.
It's been a while since I've put anything up here, but I haven't been neglecting photography. If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or my favorite mobile sharing/editing tool VSCO Cam you'll see I've been shooting and editing lately more often with my Moto X and the VSCO Cam mobile app. But there's been some interesting news lately in the photo world that had me interested enough to actually do a post.
