Boredom buster

Yesterday after my angel therapy session I went back in to warm up and find something to do. I did work a little on a couple of projects but concentration wasn't my strong point of the day.
I grabbed the camera and started playing. When I was done I had discovered I had taken 135 pictures. That's 135 pictures of nothing but silly stuff. Things like remote controls, anything on the coffee table, the dogs brush, batteries and the thermostat were all some of my subjects.
When I ran out of things to snap I turned the camera on myself. With my outstretched arm I took self portraits of all the silly faces I could think of. Then I decided I wanted to see what I would look like with bangs.

I got some really strange looks while I was taking these. Not only from Wade but from Duke too. I don't care I was amusing myself.
Finally I took the card upstairs and started playing around with some pictures.
I really hated this picture of me. My face looked really strange so I cut half of it off and just started trying different effects. Maybe NEXT weekend I'll be more productive but then again maybe not.


  1. How fun. I like this. You do amuse yourself often. I've noticed that.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  2. LOL I think you would look cute with bangs! And I like your angel below too! ;D

  3. Hey, those are cool effects! Sometimes you just need to play and that fires up the creativity! And I like your look with bangs, LOL.

  4. It is how long it takes to grow bangs back out thatkeeps many from trying them, I wear them however.I wanted to do a angel today but the snow is all crusty and would have taken off skin. I did get some good reactions from my neighbors who saw my snow sculpture I have in my blog today.Like your touch up photo, it could be a book or CD cover.Wait..... scrapbook cover.

  5. What a great idea! And these are both artisic as well, very pretty!

  6. Okay, I admit, I did this before! I don't know how to do effects to them though so they'll never see the light of day! Your photos turned out great though!

  7. Sometimes you have to be your own photo shoot! ;)
    Fun photos!
    xo Catherine

  8. eh...screw productive, you need to just have fun once in awhile, too! :)

  9. they are good and you had some fun as well...:)

  10. Sometimes that is when you take the best photos--when you are goofing around. :) Can't wait to see what you got.

  11. That's pretty cool. I amused myself with some silliness today too, but mine ended up in the kitchen.

  12. Angel it! :oD I kinda liked what you did with that second picture; I thought it was pretty neat!

  13. your photography is getting better and better! i love looking forward to what you've come up with


  14. Looks like you had fun. That is all that matters.Just relax and let it flow.

  15. First, you have more things to do than you can count, and now you are bored. Do I need to call Dr. Phil?

  16. LOL looks like you had fun! I loved your snow angel too.

  17. from the other comments i am the only one that can relate to this post. exactly what you were doing is why my hubby named me the madsnapper. i cant tell you how many times i do just what you did. even the self portrait, but all the self shots were deleted. YIKES mine did not look as good as yours. there is not one thing in my house that has not been photographed over and over. and i do the same thing in the yard. bugs, grass, sticks, even one time dog poop

  18. Well, I Like you in bangs! Cool Shots Miz Ann!

  19. Sounds like you had fun. You look just like my sister in law when you have bangs! That isn't a bad thing either. She is very nice and pretty.

  20. That is really funny, I like the effects on the last photo and you look great!

  21. Cool pics...I kind of like you with a look really different!!

  22. Sandee yes I sure do :) it's a tough job but somebody has to do it

    donna playing is good, I don't know if I lit any fires with this

    ginny lol thanks

    june, ah good, that's what I was going

    beaded tail I have plenty of pictures that will also be kept in complete darkness.

    tanyia easy for you to

    livintheblues I sure did

    Lin you may not see many of them, there were some pretty bad ones

    sharkbytes I should have done some silliness in the kitchen, I could have used something sweet

    grace, that's exactly what it was

    jen ha ha, i liked the angel therapy. thanks, I thought it had a bit of a sci fi outer space kind of feel to it, don't ask me why

    roschelle i think it's more my editing than my photography that's

    russ i sure did, that's what weekends are for

    fishhawk yes that may be a smart move on your part. I think I need him

    karen thanks and yes I did have fun

    josep lol, I was trying. and thanks, I had fun doing them

    allotments4you I may go for it but still haven't decided

  23. Too funny. You could make all kinds of faces at yourself. What a good idea. We love it when you are bored. You just never know what you are going to come up with and it is always entertaining. LOL. Take care.

  24. Such fun! That is your creative and playful spirit being all happy. Good job!

  25. I think you look good with bangs! I like to take pictures of myself too - usually in a mirror.

  26. well I really like the photo of you that you didn't like. what you did in the editing is awesome. I like both of them a whole lot.

  27. marg oh yeah, not only could I but I

    ldh I just have to do it sometimes since being a responsible adult is just not fun ALL the

    reeni I take tons only because I have no one else to take pictures of other than duke and he doesn't always cooperate

    miss becky well thanks. I like to mess around with pictures sometimes and see what I can come up with

    marie thanks but the worst part is they wouldn't look that good without my hand holding them up to give them some My hair is so straight and flat it's not even funny
