You should know by now, because I know you've been following my blog since the beginning, that is no limiter on my imagination, and quite honestly, there shouldn't be on on yours either. Warp Factor Seven!

I keep notes. In particular, I keep a little Moleskin with gridded paper to keep notes in. Each year I pick up a new one (I've yet to completely fill one within a year) and on the first page, I write down something that was important or resonated with me from the previous year. Last year it was it was a few Russian quotes from my brief adventure abroad, including "Мёд для моей души" though I believe if we wanted to be completely correct, the end quotes should be at the bottom of the letter.
This year, it's from Doctor Who, The Third Doctor to be precise, in Planet of the Daleks.
“Courage isn’t a matter of not being frightened, you know. It’s being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway.”
The quotes at the end are correct, what with it being in English and all, but the words are really the important thing to consider, and yes, the idea isn't new and has been oft repeated. Maybe there's a reason for that.

For those that read the labels at the bottom of each post, you will notice that this is also a part of the Casting Shadows series. Why? Seeing things in a new way can be a simple as focusing only on the shadows cast by an object. You like how I totally explained the label with the label? Yeah, I'm hard core street like that. Not really, but it is a change to the way you see things. Oh, and for those wonder what this is exactly, it is a set of tiny pallets, for lifting tiny 55 gallon drums, which turns out at that scale, they do not actually hold 55 gallons of anything. The lids of the drums don't come off, so I can't tell how many gallons the drums hold, though I am sure it is nowhere near any gallons. Also, cannot make tiny steel drums out of them, in case you were wondering.

Yes, I have an assortment of plastic break dancers (from the wonderful Kid Robot) I guarantee it is not the weirdest thing that occupies the same space I do and in all honesty, have you read my blog at all? This should have been expected.

See in a New Way. That is the motto of a little company known as Lensbaby. And I love it, not only that I love my Lensbaby Composer. You’ve undoubtedly seen the occasional Lensbaby image pop up here from time to time. Now you will see it every day, at least until the end of January. Cause, you know, it’s time for the annual photo day project.
I’ve always tried to focus on a theme, whether conceptual or technical, and this year though it’s primarily technical because I will be shooting only with my Lensbaby, it will also be thematic. I will literally look at things in a new way as the motto states, and this brings us back around to the original fear when I started the photo a month project way back when. You may end up having to look at things in my kitchen, as well as everything that is constantly around me or places that I always go. But I guarantee, you will look at it in a new way.
And would you look at that, this one even fits nicely into Cast Shadows. Go figure that projects I care about happen to overlap. Whodathunkit?
