I am having a hard time kicking a cold that has been lingering since Thanksgiving. It is crazy that we can make technological advances, even in photography—the ability to stop light and present it in a 2dimensional plane—and yet we can’t cure a cold? It is not fun spending the holidays sick. At least my DVR recordings are all watched, On Demand shows are all watched, all my Xbox games are played, and I have searched the entire Internet. So my New Year resolution is to not be sick anymore and to definitely take more pictures! I thought about trying to be a better person for a resolution but resolutions never last. I think I have reached as high as I am going to get and will have to just accept my shortcomings. It is hard going all crazy at the end of the semester to actually not having any thing do. Next semester is not as crazy as the last one. My classes will be a Black & White independent study, a multimedia art class, and a video art class, and an art history class focusing on the Baroque period and Italian art. I am looking most forward to my Video class, as I am so used to seeing light as a picture, not as a moving picture.
I did get some of my lost negatives developed before they closed up Marywood for teh break; these pictures are some of my experiments with Infrared film.
