Good morning, Good evening, or anywhere in-between to any and all who stumble across this
Hope everyone is having a fun and hopefully markedly less stressful time of year. Remember it’s not what you get it’s what you give. Have a very Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all get to drink lots of hot chocolate and eat tons of warm cookies this year. Stay safe, keep warm, and watch out for ice. I hear my area is supposed to be buried in snow shortly. So try an avoid traveling if you can help it, should you have the misfortune to be out in a blizzard, keep your head down, and focus on getting indoors.
And to those who don’t celebrate, Happy Holidays, may you all have a fun time in whatever you do, especially tonight. :3
I often commandeer chalkboards in my various classrooms while waiting for class to start. Unfortunately all my drawings always seems to end up being wiped off very shortly after class starts, even if the teacher isn’t using the board. Rather frustrating really. >w>;
Nearly forgot to share this amazing badge I got from Ian Jay at Anthrocon. If you haven’t seen his webcomic Epiphany you should. And then go buy all the brilliant comics and buttons from his web store if you don’t see him at a convention somewhere. :3c
Solargraph Project: January 8, 2012 - June 10, 2012
So at the beginning of this year when I was making goals and such I stumbled across a brilliant kind of pinhole camera called a solargraph. For those of you who don’t know what a solargraph is, it’s a pinhole camera designed to create a six month or longer exposure measuring the path of the sun as it moves across the sky. Now I’m not gonna lie, this is a PAAAIN if you’re an impatient person like me. But the results are well worth it. It’s a cool little project to do on your own and you don’t need to spend a bucket load of cash on it.
I set these two cameras up on January 8th, 2012 and took them down today on June 10th, 2012. The image from Camera #1 (Codename: Burt) turned out the best of the two (I feel) but the image from Camera #2 (Codename: Bud) turned out interesting as well!
And to explain what you’re seeing, the streaks of light are the sun moving across the sky, everywhere there’s a dark band or the light band is interrupted means there wasn’t any sun or a cloud obscured it.
Hope you enjoy the fruits of my 5-6 month wait. I might offer this as a print if people are interested, I know I want to get one for my bedroom wall. Any questions or comments direct to my ask box or to my DeviantArt page. :3
