tiny piece done. I actually finished it last night but hard to photograph it in the middle of night...

And now I REALLY need to go shop for markers. :D

To take a break from larger projects and everything else happening this week, I started a tiny drawing. They don't look much in this stage but here it is.

Sometimes a photograph wants to be 2 different things. I had a very clear vision of the story I wanted to tell with this picture and larger series, so that crop ended up being what it is. However, in this case, it does break my heart a little because the original is a very powerful photo in itself. So here it is, for posterity. ;)

(oh.. the cost of this photo was a 4-day long headache, and it was the last photo taken before retreating indoors.)

"What the Lightning Left Behind" is yet another of the images from the ongoing sky related project.

Istanbul being in a ominous mood. Another one of the thunderstorms from last year. This one I actually waited inside until it was a bit far away.

There is a fire burning where home is, far ahead. Is that an omen or a beacon of hope? ...or is it both?

2018 Its been a while since I did a larger scale drawing.

and (for documenting reasons)


I think I hadn't done a self portrait in nearly a decade (maybe more) I went from doing a lot of it when i was younger to really disliking how it became something expected to have online: how one looks like. I like this image of me testing a new lens from last october through so I will put it out here.

But then again, is this even a self-portrait or a portrait at all?

I mentioned earlier that I have been making art, just not being good about documenting it.

Here is one of the pieces that got done earlier this year.

and as is still my editing software of choice for processing these photographs and the operating system they are done in.

This is one of the images where I started by liking but then liked less as I continued to work on it. Its one of the first photos I begun editing. I think this is as far as it will get after the months on and off, at least in static format. :)

So I guess it is a new / time. I do as well as other mediums of both traditional and electronic. Always behind work, these days more so than usual. :)

I keep forgetting to post posts. Here is one that is a case of a photograph is created not taken. A lot of subtle editing on this one.

2017.
Just some more clouds.

This is actually from my sony a6000. A lot of the underexposed images tend to have this 90s film camera quality to it after it. I am not sure, if it is what I tend to gravitate toward, or has to do with the properties of the film back in the day.

Smartphone shot. I am not sure how I feel about this. Overedited or just enough? Also apparently it is possible to use the perspective and liquefy tools to get around blur of the lens on edges.

2017. . It was either being frustrated by how the bright blue lights of that ship blocked perseids...

...or taking this photograph.

To also note, this is the image that made me invest in a graduated filter since then. Very annoying image to edit, even through the overexposed ship does work for the composition in this case, rather than against. Sony A6000. Samyang 21mm F1.4.

Usually I like my smartphone images, but this one that is in that small "I wish I had a semi professional camera to shoot this" pile. So much noise to mitigate... even with stacking.

Anyhow...

Very faint aurora borealis on top of Orion constellation, also featuring the pleiades. You can actually kind of see the nebula at the belt.
