Project 365 Day 16: The Drugs Don't Work

16-01-10 I had a headache when I woke up this morning. Accidental nights out will do that to you. So I headed out to work after a couple of Paracetamol capsules. In my rush to get out of the house I forgot my memory card for my camera. So I asked my wife to drop it round to me when she was able, luckily I only live about 3 mins walk from my office. So Chrissie dropped the card off to me and on her way back home our car broke down. You have to understand she is African and it is quite cold outside, so she drove. So today hasn't been the best. I think we both need some more pills to make us forget about it! Anyway this shot was staring me in the face all day. Its a couple of paracetamol capsules on top of my iphone. I used the "Cross Processing" setting in Nik Colour Efex Pro to treat it.


In other news yesterdays picture made flickr's explore pages for that day. So did the out take from day 11. I feel quite pleased with myself about that!


Manual Page Read: At work right now. Will read a page when I get home and update. Page 54 - Taking Sunset Photos.


Images Viewed: I was in the Washington Pub last night and they have some photos on the wall there. One of them is a 10x10 grid of nipples each one with a slightly different brightness and saturation setting. Just thought I would share that with you.


Other Inspiration: I took my film camera out last night. Its a Minolta Dynax 3 I picked up off ebay a few months ago. It has the same lens mount as my Sony. I loaded it up with a roll of Ilford ISO3200 black and white film and took some candid portraits around the table I was at. Shooting with film makes you think. I did a small calculation and It costs 25p every time I press the shutter! And that is before processing!
