Doin’ my thang.

Pretty much a year ago to the date, I created a folder on my computer titled “Photography to Sell” because I was in a mood where I felt motivated and wanted to give the whole doing-my-own-thing project a shot.  Fast forward a year and here I am, not having even touched that folder.  I read Krista’s blog the other day and she totally inspired me because she’s going to sell some of her photography as well.  (PS Go check out her lovely blog/photography/self)  I don’t know if I am stepping on anyone’s toes as far as sales go in the blog world, but I kind of have a If I Don’t Do It Now I Won’t Do It mindset at the moment

So, I’m going to attempt this.  Who knows.  I might be shit out of luck and secretly you’ll all snicker behind my back about what I’m doing.  I really don’t care, I’m doing this for myself not anybody else, right?  Well not entirely, of course.  Not that I wouldn’t love to see some of my photos grace your wall, of course, and share my art times with y’all.  Everyone has got to have some sort of a start.

I did some research on prices, postage, how to send these so the photos won’t get ruined, and I’m going to start out with a price of $20 per 8×10 photo.  That includes shipping, tax, everything.  (If I don’t have to mail it to you, it’s $15) This whole pricing thing feels strange.  Aside from garage sales, I’ve never had to deal with setting prices.  I think that is reasonable as it covers postage, costs for printing at a photography shop here in the city, a wee bit for my time, and then a little wee bit extra.  Either comment or e-mail me at or Facebook me or whatever your preferred communication is and we can set something up.

I have other photos that I haven’t put up yet.  I’m going to start with these 9 – they’re some of my faves.  Happy looking.  For now I’m going to go listen to DJ music with lazers, organs and appropriate beats.  Saturday!

On January 1, 2010, I started a very thorough, detailed journal.  I have been noting when I go to bed, when I wake up, what foods I eat, a brief outline of what I did that day, and a longer blurb about my overall moods (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional) experienced that day.  I will also be charting when the new moon/full moon occurs and when the first day of my menstrual cycle is.  I want to attempt to recognize solid patterns – the patterns that make up my whole entire being.  I want to see at what point in the month am I intellectually the sharpest.  I want to understand which foods affect my gut-rot.  I want to know when my creativity and spirituality is being thoroughly nurtured and fueled.  I already am quite aware of my menstrual cycle but I want to be able to understand how it is interconnected with every other part of my being and with the lunar cycle as well.  At this point it’s fairly trial and error – I’m seeing what works for me.  In a month I may think this is stupid and abandon all pen and paper activities related to thorough journaling.  Or, the better option of the two, I will realize how beneficial this is to me and my relationships with others.  I kind of have this thing where I suck at sticking to habits, and I know that’s because I lack motivation after something becomes “boring” – it’s similar to why I cannot watch stand-up comedy and why shiny squishy things are sometimes EXTREMELY interesting.

And on that note, with my whole new journaling endeavours as well as my renewed commitment to this blog, I have decided that this is connected to my journal which is connected to me.  And so photos and words it is.
