I drew this page several weeks ago when I first started drawing adult coloring pages. It’s probably the most like children’s coloring pages of any of the drawings that I’ve done so far. I wanted to draw a winter scene, and it came out very cartoonish.
If I were in the habit of swearing on my blogs, I would swear. It’s gotten seriously cold. Yesterday morning I was so stressed, I drove to the local 24-hour Metro (grocery store) to buy some chocolate. This was what I saw as I walked back to my car. (That’s not my car, by the way. It’s the only other car that was parked by the grocery store.)
Something about the light – the pre-dawn gloom, combined with the glow from the parking lot lights – felt very tundra-like. Like noon in the Arctic, in the dead of winter. Or something.
(I like the way Camera+‘s HDR filter worked on this shot.)
Above is the thermometer in my back room, after three hours of space heating by my blessed oil-filled radiant heater. My iPhone told me it was minus 17 Celsius out. Normally the temperature in this room can get to plus 26 with the space heater. Brr.
One of my favorite bloggers is doing a #photo365 project this year, and it’s inspired me to do a #photo365 project myself. I’m going to be taking at least one photo each day for a year, and sharing them on the Internet. I started yesterday, January 1, and the above photo was my chosen shot from day 1. I’ll keep track of each day’s photo here on my Tumblr blog. On this emelgy.com blog, I’ll be sharing background info about the photos, and any other shots from the same day.
Yesterday I took a short drive with a friend. We didn’t go far, but the trip took us slightly out of the city as we travelled from one suburb to another, and we happened to pass through some wintry country landscapes in the process.
These shots were taken with my new HipstamaticTintype SnapPak, and then processed with Camera+ to heighten the contrast. I love the 19th century feel of this Hipsta pack…
I’ve added all of these photos to this Google+ album of winter landscapes. More to come, since I also went for a walk in the woods yesterday…
