OK, so i’ve been on WordPress for a while. started this blog basically as a way to help me deal with my diagnosis of Multiple Personality Disorder, but it’s usually more of an artistic outlet than anything else. but i’ve avoided these “post a day” challenges they have on the site, because, honestly, you guys who follow this blog know how sporadic it is. four posts a week followed by one in five months kind of reliability.
but, i liked the idea of this challenge: to photograph something from above. and so, shoot, i’m going to try to do the post a week challenge, so that at least i will be trying to put up something every week, even if it’s just a picture of one of my dollies!
(for the curious, i work on another blog as well that sucks up all my extra time, “luvlansing.com”, also on WordPress.)
my sister and i are kind of obsessed with Monster High dolls.
in part, because i have always loved monsters (since like age 5) and these are great tributes to the famous – and not famous – creepy crawly scaries of the world; and in part because they are dang cute and want to come home with us.
so i’m making a page for the lot of them. they are VERY photogenic, so i’ll be adding pictures as they come around. 😉
I recently contacted artist/photographer Marco Ribbe about a photo I saw recently. I’ve been on “Pinterest” quite a lot recently, as I’m very visual and it’s a mecca for beautiful eye candy. While “pinning” I saw a stunning piece of Ribbe’s that I immediately pinned. However, I contacted him via email because – for some reason – I thought maybe I should check on the photos copyright, useage, etc.
Sure enough, there are litigation issues with that particular picture, and the photographer emailed me back immediately, hoping I would understand his position, which was that it would be best to not use the image at this time. He was tremendously polite and gracious about the whole thing, and directed me to his facebook page suggesting I use another image of his.
This is a professional photographer! Who does AMAZING work! STEAMPUNK NO LESS!!!!
So, grateful that he even contacted me, and impressed by both his work and his professionalism, I wanted to share his website so you could all view his magic for yourself. Happy feasting!!!
