Photographing Dreams

Poor neglected blog!

Today seems to be a day for catching up with old friends.... so I thought I'd continue the trend on here too.

My most recent project on flickr is a 365 one - attempting to taking daily photos sparked by dreams, preferably from the night before, using Hipstamatic on an iPhone.

Last night I dreamt I was looking at graphs of happiness in a canteen. When I talked to Jim about this he produced a recent New Scientist which had just those sort of graphs in them... so I decided to take it to my local cafe as the nearest thing I could find to a canteen...

On the way I stopped in the Amnesty book shop. And bumped into someone I hadn't seen for a year. She was also aiming at Coffee #1 so we went there together. (Hello Kim if you are reading this!).

 Today I also got some rainbow shoe laces:

Rainbow Laces

This was spurred on by a dream in which the Dalai Lama appeared and told me I needed new shoe laces. The ones in the dream were rainbow ones. I had to photograph some far less colourful ones for the 365 project but now I've got pretty ones!

I like to take my dreams as literally as possible :)

I tried to leave a comment already, but I suspect blogger ate it. Apologies if I'm repeating myself.

I was just enthusing about hipstamatic and my suspicions about it's ability to sell iPhones. I don't think I'll take another 'normal' photo again.

I think I should try and come up with a flickr project, and also some regular blogging.

Blogger gobbled it alright - thanks for trying again.

The only reason I got an iPhone was Hipstamatic - not that I won't use some of the features - but this was the "killer app" for me... and good job too since so far Orange have entirely failed to turn into an actual phone....

Good to see you again, Caro. How I've missed your art. I still think of one you did some time ago, a fish in a tree :-)
