I was introduced to this application called decim8 from a friend of mine called “Nessie” she has introduced me to lots of really fun apps for my iphone, all to do with photography of course. I decided to join her in a project. I’m fairly consistent but I do miss a day from time to time. She calls it Shakeitout2014 and it’s a fun little project that one does with their cell phone with another app called Hipstamatic and these things can be addictive for photo junkies like me. I think often the idea of a SP (self-portrait) is terrifying to most. However as I have explained in the past, it’s all a part of our artistic expression in the community of artists where I like to spend some time. I have life long friends who nearly think I’m a freak for some of the silly things I do like “selfies” and for sure when I crack out the unicorn head but it’s just sort of who I am and I try not to let negative comments or weird facial expressions of some slow me down any. I have plenty of support otherwise and my kids especially are very used to my antics. So the other day I was rolling the dice, cause that’s what you can do with the decim8 app to get random filters and patterns and I got stuck rolling the dice. It was like this strange addiction. I couldn’t stop rolling the dice to see what this app would come up with. Below are some of the results.
some are kind of pretty, while others are a little scary. So I’m just sharing about apps and projects in case any of you want to join or try. It’s fun. It just is. Just like breathing, believing and loving this is part of me. Take it, leave it, ignore it, like it, hate it as long it provokes some sort of emotion then I have accomplished the part about art.
I have another busy day ahead of me. You see the soccer player has his last game. It’s an away game. I plan on getting over there. He did fantastic yesterday, blocked way more goals than went in. One passed through but I was so proud of all the blocks prior. Littlest girl still has a hurt knee from her ice-skating fall so she is taking the week off cheer. I had a nice dinner with motorcycle guy last night and we spent an evening with the oldest this week which was nice. We have a MAJOR PLUMBING problem right now. It’s really, really bad. Oh, yuck. It may even need an actual plumber this time. Rich and Papa will see what can be done tonight. I suppose we will just have to see. I’ll be away tonight getting a hair cut. I wonder what I will decide. The word Shag has popped into my head a few times.
