Day 23: Sunflare:



Technical challenge. Yes! The sun came out for a few minutes and I was able to capture this. There is even a tiny bit of lens flare effect, oooh-aar!

(Gods, that lamp needs cleaning.)

Day 22: Hands:



This has a certain United Colours of Benneton thing going for it (an advertising campaign from the 1980s famous for its multi cultural casting.)

Day 21: Faceless selfportrait:



The wild and elusive [livejournal.com profile] brinylon in her natural habitat. Note the self replicating stacks of books, the iMac, the World of Warcraft Collector's Editions, Medicom Roy and Medicom Ed, Totoro, and other recgonisable relics of nerddom.

Day 20: Bokeh:



Another technical challenge. I'm not a huge fan of bokeh myself, but it's very popular. I do like this picture, in all its pink dolliness :)

Day 19: Something orange:



What could be more orange than an orange?

Day 18: Shoes:



Like many other people I love shoes. I also love the colour pink. This is a happy mix.
brinylon: (Fangulls!)
Day 17: Technology:



Printing first of all, and the smart phone and tablet latest.
brinylon: (HP_stiff)
Day 16: Long exposure:

Playing with fire.



This was super fun to do. I used a candle, because a flashlight would be too boring. This does mean I'll be cleaning wax off the floor for the next 6 months. It's everywhere, but totally worth it!

Day 15: Silhoutte:

Half way! And this is the first of the technical challenges.



The model is Ng ye, and the weather is sucktastic.

Day 14: Eyes:



Not everyone is so lucky as to have so many eyes to choose from! (Just in case there was any doubt: these are bjd eyes).

Day 13: Yourself with 13 things:



Instead of photographing myself with 13 things, I decided to photograph myself 13 times with 1 thing and overlay the images. This was fun and I like the result a lot. You can see much more detail in the hi-res version which can be found here.

The 13 things are:
01 Elie - bjd/dolls/never forgot how to play
02 Anna Sui mirror - stuffstuffstuff
03 Spike wristband - new wave teenage years
04 BTSSB brooch - Japanese pop culture
05 Books - foundation of life
06 Skeleton - memento mori
07 Toadstools - fairy tales/myths
08 Tiara - fantasy/fandom
09 Mom's ring - in memoriam
10 Flower wristband - my job <-> feminity (performance of)
11 Bowl and spoon - food
12 Headphones - music
13 hNaoto Hello Kitty phonestraps- Hello Kitty

Day 12: Sunset:



Took this from the attic window in the back of the house. The two towers in the middle belong to the Rijksmuseum.

Day 11: Something blue:



The same thing happened as with the Something green challenge, in this case my toenails are on the blueish side of the turquoise/seawater taffy/lagoon/teal/aquamarine/azure spectrum.

Day 10: A childhood memory:



This box belonged to my mother's mother, who died when I was pretty young. Whenever I came across it I would want to look inside and ooh and ah at the contents.

It's mine now, and I added some things that mean a lot to me. The necklace on the left belonged to my maternal grandmother, it was always part of the content of the box. The pearls were my mother's, the carnelians my paternal grandmother's, she wanted me to have those because I used to suck on them as a baby. I do not remember this :) The coral beads used to be my mother's, she gave them to me when I was three years old. I would still wear them today if they weren't so fragile.

The label you can see in the back of the box is my hospital identification tag from when I was born.

Day 09: Someone you love:



I love my iPad more than life itself. Ha. No, today's photo is a blatant cheat. I found it very hard to pick someone I love for this picture without it feeling like slightling everyone else. And I love this photo of my brother I took a couple of years ago. So, this way I technically fulfilled the requirement of taking a new photo for the challenge.

Doh!

This image has nothing to do with the photo challenge. It illustrates a story of me being a giant doofus that I want to share with you.

You see, several years ago I discovered BJDs, and then I wanted one (this does tie in with today's photo challenge). When I had ordered Élie I also got him a wardrobe, these sneakers being one of those purchases. But alas, they were too small. I chalked this up to them being girl sneakers and put them away (I may have halfheartedly tried to sell them on at some point).

Fast forward to about a year ago when Ng ye came to this house. A girl! So she would probably fit these sneakers right? No, too small. But Ng ye has an extra pair of smaller feet that I will totally try out one day, so I put the shoes away again.

Until today when I was messing with another pair of sneakers. I bought them at some point but they were slightly smaller than the ones in the picture so I probably didn't even try them on Élie and just put them away. They did fit Ng ye. Wait a minute... I tried the high ones again, they were too small, but I forced them a bit and it sort of worked, and the effect is very nice so I really want this to work. It's a chore getting them on with those laces, omg. I tried the second shoe but it looked all weird. I felt inside the shoe. Turns out there is a wad of tissue paper stuffed up there! And once I removed that, the shoe fit perfectly. Took the other shoe off again, yes, paper there too. Doh!

I haven't had the courage yet to see if they fit Élie XD
