Project365 week2: no clever title

I’ve begun cycling to work, a beautiful route, but unfortunately I’m too scared of it falling out and getting damaged so its safely in my backpack (bag sounded abit too feminine for some reason 😉 – need to do something about that, summer is here and outdoor photo ops will be in abundance.

i love you more
inspired by the streets lyric + boredom

8of365: I’m awfull at drawing

one of those days where everyone is just watching the clock and feeling restless. So i whipped out the Spen and this is what “happened”.

reminds me of  the last verse of this song –>  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EntNNddAnw (have to relearn html code)

which goes:

I drew a drawing of you after last time I saw you
I never felt to draw a picture like that before
I learnt a lot about myself drawing all morning
It was absolutely shit, I’m awful at drawing

90’s kid’s kid

9of365: 90’s kid’s kid

I just love how 90’s the bag is! I was always a fun of elmo, on par with the cookie monster and the count. and now that Bert and Ernie are gone, i kinda miss them too. on local tv we’ve got our own spinoff: Takalane Sesame whose claim to fame is having the 1st HIV+ muppet. its a pity that its mostly not in english.

fighting the love in

10of365: fighting the love in

the title is a direct translation from an Afrikaans saying. heard my two loves play fighting in the bedroom and tried to capture the moment. and then got sucked into the battle leaving with only this single attempt. my better half digs it

magnetic accessory

11of365: troll magnets

many times i go in public only to realise that i still have something on me that miniMe has attached. typically its small hairclips or Dora the explorer stickers on my manly travelmug. today she found out the magnet could stick on my buckle…so i rocked it. a tiger is by no means a pussy the interesting part was me trying to take a pic without it looking … well…i opted for the mirror self pic (even did the duckface)

swiper noh swiping

12of365: So what was your favourite part?

the weather was schizophrenic so we couldn’t go to the fair, ended up playing with her new prezzie till i went to my cuz and watched the Ruggas. after the game an Englishman happened to pop by and the obligutary “your team Sucks” comenced. When his kid finally woke up the 2 rugrats  played like best buds…eventually crying not to leave home

no adults allowed

13of365: No supervision = maximum fun!

whilst all the adults were busy with the braai (others know it as BBQ), the kids had free reign. Man did they love it! since they all similar ages they got along well most of the time. Although each one did cry eventually (“he stepped on my toe!”, “She pushed me sore!”). but every now and then when I checked on them, I could see on their faces the fun they were having…

 

 

dedacted due to personal paranoia

14of365: My meditative route

I live about 7km from my work and this year decided ans saved for a folding bike (Giandt FD806). I cycled to the nearest train station, then took the train closest to work. Got a lot of looks and conversation from commuters. I would then cycle home at the end of the day. last week i decided to cycle to and from work. I take it easy to work allocating an hour, although it takes me 30mins to get home. was abit worried about my old war injury acting up but so  far no complaints 🙂 soon i will be able to witness the fitness!

Project 365 – visual plus commentry

it bin awhile I know…but since my camera got stolen (and the fact that I kave bin real busy!) i’ve written a coupla posts but never posted.

its kinda boring reading a wall of text. i imagine ppl looking at it and thinking tl;dr…

but now i have a somewhat decent camera attached to a phone (see last post). i thought what would really push me would be the project 365; whereby i take @least one pic a day, and since that phone is always with me – i have no excuse. Combined with commentry to kinda explain why or whats happening, will atleast have a somewhat accurate account of pre and post phase shift (if you belive the mayans) or pre and post apacolypse (if you believe the hype). i feel im about to digress here…

i will be posting weekly summaries of the 6 or 7 pix taken. so here goes my first week (by the way loving my phone!)

miniMe meets the board

1of365:  miniMe meets the board

i have no idea why its this one. it was suppose to be her standing on the board perusing the contents on our dining room table. took 3 photos of her playing with the board. she actually managed to stand on the board whilst pushing it – unbelievable as she is still perfecting riding a scooter!

balcony

2of365: deckingception

this was taken with man with camera app, it takes lomo like shots. this one is with the “Diana” camera that takes multiple (only 2) exposures. what you looking at is the right and left area of my balcony (a work in progress, ok more like suspended untill further notice…and by notice i mean funds 😉

 

fuzzy eyebrows

3of365: springtime of youth

just before writing my last exam i saw a guy with this awesome drawing of Lee (if i even needed to tell you his name, let alone the series name…move along). So had a chat with him after our exam (guess the topic). when his lift arrived, turns out he’s the youngest brother of a friend from campus – small world hey…

 

4of365: say cheese!

i like this pic cos its not staged. i really dislike pictures where everyone gets ready, touching up their makeup and such. you end up with stock standard photos. this one was me playing with the features of the previously mentioned app. i just now noticed that everything around Amina (the baby) is exagerated in size – accidents are mostly beautiful…

 

5of365: To infinmty an be-bonnd!

mention Buzz light year and that is the next words out of both our mouths! as a reward for going potty, miniMe got Buzz’s gun and bobble Buzz (I’m so putting it on my dashboard!). the damn  gun shoots the foam discs crazy far, so in order to not spend the whole day looking for those dics i created a monster that we could battle. when she shot them all out she had to collect and count all 11 (one was lost after the first shooting). Talk aboot making learning fun 😉

 

the fields are alive with...

6of365: non-specific gender bug

I wonder what the PR name for ladybug is? aswell as daddy-longlegs.

I am the only one in the house MOST excited that we have ladybugs, the actual first pic i took of my chamomile plant had two ladybugs mating which is just awesome if your a budding organic gardner. just a pity that no-one feels my joy…aphids, your days are numbered!

 

7of365: not bashful, just tired

self-pic of me after arriving home hot and abit tired. I have a fold up bicycle; Giant FD806, that i used to cycle to the train station and then cycle back home. Today i cycled from home straight to work and back. was abit worried about my old war injury but i’m planning to make it a daily travel – killing multiple birds at once. The route is so lovely that once i witness-the-fitness i can take a longer route.

so that concludes my weekly update of project365. Looking forward to what moments i can document…

Gotta brand new toy!

Working in IT, im surroundedby (Mostly) guys and their toys.

Ive grown tired of my current fone not because im into ‘newer is better’, rather I wanted something that will last.
Told my better half that Android fones seems to be the way and that the next fone I get will prolly lost me till its broken beyond repair…kinda how I wear my favourite clothing items till its relegated to housework duties.

I figure that the fones out now are faster than my pc in school, and with the ability to put a custom rom on it when it gets outdated will prolong its usefulness ever further. Besides, I dont really like talking on cellphones but enjoy all the other uses including having a camera on hand.

I was planning on getting the galaxy S3, untill the night I was gonna order it through by bank. When I saw that they were offering the galaxy note2 at R8 more per month!
I wanted the original note when it came out but is was too damn exspensive here (the same bank is offering the note1 at more than the S3!).
I was sold.
Took afew days to google specs and user reviews to confirm, but that just made me more excited.
I am never one to get the latest gadget as a) I normally cant afford it
b) I usually wait and gather intel (while waiting for the price drop)

I dont really conform to fashion though im acutely aware of the future trends.
Anyway for I now have my first droid phone, technically my first smartphone. With which I plan to use to the fullest.

Hence google and forums are your friends!

More on this later…
