Cross stitch birds

I started a new Lanarte project.

I’m an idiot I know. I have at least 10 ongoing stitching projects. In fact I don’t remember the last time I actually posted a completed project on the blog. I should feel ashamed but I am not.

Really I just like to work at more things at once. And if I get bored with one project I can switch to another one.

Here’s a more detalied picture of the project:

This project is actually pretty big and I am thinking of doing it in two parts; what I stitched so far I am thinking in making into a bookmark and the other part I am thinking of framing it after completion.

The project starts tomorrow

I could give excuses on why I didn’t start my photography project last week, but I was just being lazy and very tired from work.

I was thinking that maybe street photography isn’t for me and that there aren’t much things to photographs anyway. So, after a one more last effort I decided to look for some tips on street photography, for something that will prove me wrong and which will improve my morale or give a boost so I won’t give up.

So, I came across this page with 20 tips for street photography.  And from this page I ended up on this website: Eric Kim Street Photography. What interested me was this video in which Eric Kim goes out for a photo shoot and films himself while at it.

By watching the video I realised that at first glance not many places seem to have photo potential. I mean I wouldn’t even have bothered taking out the camera since that neighbourhood didn’t inspire anything to me. Yet some of the photos he took are really nice.

It’s amazing how the camera sees things in a different way than we do.

So, I decided to give one more try. This week shall be all about pictures. I’m still not sure how to post, how to present them or things like that. The one things I’m sure is that there will be a lot of photos. After all, Bucharest is such a dynamic city, even at the first hours of the day.

I will not let myself down. :)
