Personal Quote: If not now, when?
I'm going through some downtime after a very long and arduous eight months studying at graduate school.  Thankfully phase 1 (coursework) is over, and all that is left is phase 2 (thesis), but it is still going to be interesting (read: hell).  It's been very hard, and lately I have found myself surrounded by misery.  Life has been so stressful that I look at the remaining work left to do and want to throw my laptop through the window into the rain; however, that would wipe out what photography I have left in my portfolio.  I had a tragedy around Christmastime where my external hard drive failed and I lost a considerable amount of my portfolio -- I'd moved my images to save space temporarily and ended up losing them instead.  Until I can put together approx. $2000 to get data recovery done from this hard drive, I have a paperweight sitting in my study.

Ah well.

So during this downtime, I am planning on doing a considerable amount of writing.  I am still doing professional photography, but I have wanted to write for a very long time, particularly in the realms of poetry and fantasy fiction.  I have a few different articles illustrating different writing prompts, and I think that I am going to do a 30 day challenge based on these prompts.  These pieces of writing will either be poetry or short stories.  My aim with this challenge is to reach some kind of mental catharsis in which I no longer want to use my laptop as a weapon against my window.  I think that would be a healthy start.  From there it will be revision and the building of a portfolio; I haven't stocked my portfolio in some time, and it's time to bulk it up a bit with some quality work.  

The next few portraits posted in my gallery will be of maternity shoots as that is primarily what I have been up to in photography as of late.  I hope you enjoy them.

Yours most truly,

PipeDreamJunkie (formerly known as the infamous Nyiera)

My enlarger has a light leak. ;_____;
Light leak bad. :( My old enlarger was mostly made of gaffer's tape by the time it was finished. :(

Come out any time. I'll make cookies. :)

Light leak terrible. I'm a sad panda. Problem is that I'm not sure how I can fix it -- the way the enlarger is constructed, for me to put tape on the leak is to eliminate any way of opening the top to replace the bulb when it goes. :( *sigh* I have to figure out something.
