Maybe love is in the air because it’s almost Valentines day, but I found this potato that looked like a heart while I was making chips. I decided to tell a mood story with a potato. It goes from rather light and happy looking to pretty dark.
My grandparents’ moved to Canada 30 something years ago and have lived in the same house ever since. Their home is filled with crazy trinkets. Some even have tags and packaging still attached. There is not a dull spot in their house which is void of colour or some form of craziness. They are the kind of people who have Christmas lights hung up all year round. There’s flowers on lamps (which is probably a fire hazard) and hidden birds everywhere. I decided with this wealth of strange things that I should capture some of it’s beauty in photos.
For Christmas, I received a brand new Canon 60D and an 18-135mm lens. I’ve already bought a billion filters and accessories for it. As well, I also got a book that explains all the different Canon lenses. I think this is the start of a new addiction. I have tested the camera and the colours on it are amazing even in low light. It is far superior than dad’s Canon Rebel which I have used in the past. I still have yet to leave the house and actually do some shooting though. I hope to share with you my progression as I find my style as a photography. You are warned though, by now you know I’m far too weird and diverse to settle on one thing. Be prepared to witness concerts, food and just the beauty of life through my lens.
