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.

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

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

Julie Harward said...

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

Donna said...

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.

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.

Ginny Hartzler said...

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

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

Your photos are amusing. :)

BeadedTail said...

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!

Catherine said...

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

Tanyia said...

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

livintheblues said...

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

Lin said...

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

Sharkbytes said...

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

Anonymous said...

Totally Fun!

Jen said...

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

Unknown said...

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


Russ AKA Grampy said...

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

Unknown said...

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

Karen said...

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

MadSnapper said...

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

Donna said...

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

Tammy said...

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.

J. M. P. said...

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

allotments4you said...

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

Ann said...

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

julie I've had them before and I don't know why I let the grow out

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

out on the prairie tell me about it. I've had them before. The worst part about having them for me is I'm so bad about making appointments to get my hair cut

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.

catherine for me it's almost always, I can't get anyone else to cooperate

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

sandra we are birds of a feather aren't we and believe it or not I have also taken pictures of dog poop....rofl

donna thanks, I still don't know if I'll get them or not

tammy yes i did aw well I'm proud to look like your sister in law then :)

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

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

Marg said...

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.

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

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

Reeni said...

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

Ms. Becky said...

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.

marie said...

I love you with bangs!

Ann said...

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
