My Hipstamatic Life

2 Comments

I’m doing a little planning for #the100dayproject. I need to post the title of the project on January 31. The start day is close. I need to get busy with ideas.

1. During the 100 days there will be three or more travel days, one oil change, a Safari park, a cardiologist appointment, and I’ll be living away from WHQ for a few days. Those are the things I know about.

2. Currently I intend to do all the photography and video work for the project with an iPhone. The photos will be taken with Hipstamatic X and edited with Snapseed. Videos will recorded with the 8mm app and edited with the Splice app. All this is subject to change at any time.

I’m debating which 8mm filter goes best the the toy camera filter in Hipstamatic X.

3. The concept is to record my everyday life in words, pictures, and video.

4. I need to come up with a unique hash tag too.

5. Or maybe I should do it all in black and white

6. Suggestions are welcome.

I’m probably doing the #100DayProject this year. I have two ideas I and playing with: pictures of my everyday life or pictures/videos of acts of kindness.

#100DayProject

I try to do this but I skipped 2020. One more go this year.

Currently I’m thinking about photos documenting my daily life. Not sure. I may practice a bit before January 31.

It’s cold today and this has been my view.

1. An RV Christmas Tree. It is the first one in several years. Things are different, more magical, with a child on board.

2. This is the first time since the initial lock down the first of 2020 that I have lived close enough to a store that delivers or to any delivery service to have groceries delivered. I can truthfully say that I love having groceries brought to the door. That frees up a lot of time and limits risk. I could get spoiled.

3. I’ve been baking banana bread in my slow cooker. It’s easy and works well. My technique is improving with practice.

4. A vaccine in finally available. YAY. Vaxx Now

I hope you had great holiday. Wishing you all the best in 2021. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments help me feel meaningfuld. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

Personal Notes

1. Kudos to Chase Visa. December 1, I purchased $100 of fuel at Speedway. The next morning there was a email from Chase regarding a charge they denied. It was an additional $150 charge at Speedway. Thank you for saving me money Chase. They are sending out a new card.

2. The child on board brought holiday joy when he arrived. It’s been a long time. It goes with my theme during this time of Covid ice-o-lation, “think different thoughts”. I needed this booster shot of joy.

It’s been a few years since the last Christmas tree

3.

The Nativity we saw during our bicycle ride.

4. My 1SE for November. A video of snippets from my November.

A Walk in the Woods

4 Comments

Jesse and I went for a walk on a dirt (sand) trail in Gulf Shores. It was a cool walk in the woods at the beginning.

The first thing we found was an abandoned shopping cart.

It had been there a while. It was held down by vines. We walked further in and came across an abandoned sofa. I took several pictures but none were recorded. I’ll return and try again.

The weirdest of all was a creepy doll.

Flipped over

Much further down the trail, we found the head.

The body and head were not chewed up. The head appeared to have been cut off. See the smilie face? Weirdness.

The sun was setting.

The next day we returned on our bicycles to get a photo of the sofa.

1. The Alabama Safari Park now has a yearly pass. There is a cool drive through section and an equally as interesting walk through section.

2. I came across Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve a few years ago. It turned out to be one of the best places to camp I have found in south Alabama.

Thank you for stopping in. Your visits, likes, and comments are delightful. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you peace and joy.
