My Hipstamatic Life

3 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. Today the Blackstone 17” Griddle arrived. I am excited about this upgrade to the outside cooking trip. I need to do some minor assembly and then season the cooking surface before I can try it out.

2. I seasoned the griddle this afternoon.

It’s seasoned. Next step is cooking something.

3. A grand experience/experiment. I cooked banana bread in a slow cooker.

It came out good. I over cooked it a bit. I don’t bake so I went too long. It passed the 11 year old boy test. He ate several pieces. He suggested adding vanilla and cinnamon and using a different recipe that included butter.

Thank you for visiting my blog. . Your visits, likes, and comments are greatly appreciated . Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Seasons greeting.

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.

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.

Original position
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.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments are nice. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you joy and peace.
