A shout out to my inlaws who have been living in Uganda for the last year… you can read what they have been up to. Paragraph alert! They are back in 5 weeks, hooray!
If the response to swearing (where legitimate in regards to: describing ‘a truly shit experience) is that: “the word ‘shit’ let me know I’m still in the real world” then there is something remarkably wrong with people (and by people here I mean Christians) who get hung up on ‘saying the right thing because it’s SO important to be morally correct’.
My Christianity MUST be integrated into my life and not a box this up here, box this up there solution.It seems insane to me that we are still having these discussions which pin back to legalistic rules. And yes being different IS okay, context IS okay and you may never choose to swear and that’s okay… but when it starts to interfere with the root cause? Then it is not okay.
Can you care without swearing… uh yes. But should the stray descriptive word become the focal point where the conversation is nothing to do with your moral highground. No.
shitty shit shit.
(this is all pre-emptive naturally and probably more a wee vent about lots of the legalistic crap I have heard touted on gush through the years – which I still love dearly – and still frequent despite it sending me bonkers every few months or so)
you probably don’t have clue what I’m talking about. /rant.
I am enjoying doing a little more photography… and also LOVING Lightroom and RAW files. Made an vintagey action… So here’s the beautiful Anna with the ‘Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty’ action applied. The name is a hat tip to the Big Bang Theory (totally to amuse myself)
Something that REALLY annoys me is when photographers make black and white or colour edits and don’t supply the original in colour. You should always get the colour option (unless of course the photo cannot be saved any other way… in which case it probably shouldn’t be in the selection).
I am shooting my first solo wedding on Australia Day next year. Just a wee bit excited.
Branding yourself is ridiculous. I really need to sit down and hash out what/how I want to represent myself, look at how I design etc. I have redesigned and played around with the blog and my folio site SO many times and I’m still not happy with it, so it sits there very shabby with very little new work on display at all.
It’s nice actually I think in the last little while at work I’ve loosened my grip on how things should always be and it’s freeing me up. I’m also finally noticing some kind of ‘Rebecca’ishness’ to my work – which is oddly nice and weird at the same time. I’ve had a huge variety of different formats lately from billboards to toilet paper and soon an annual report. I like challenging formats. The freelance work continues to roll in, which is great because they’re often jobs I really enjoy however the whole work again after you’ve worked a full day is a bit much at times.
My ideal little design world would consist of: Branding, Websites (Coding), Invitations and Photography. No DL brochures here Jeeves.
