19/365


all of the king's horses and all of the king's men
couldn't pull my heart back together again
all of the physicians andmathematicians too
failed to stop my heart from breaking in two
cos all i need is you
i just need you
yeah you got the glue so i'm gonna give my heart to you
i had a premonition
a movie in my hand
confirming my suspicions of what i would find
it followed me to l a
down to mexico
came in through the back door at the start of the show
still all i need you
i just need you

This shot was origionally me releasing birds towards the sky but during the test shots i made this pose and thought it looked even more effective. All the images and textures used are my own, the effect of the grain being the kitchen window covered in dust and paint specs, it's still not done! lol
Aside from that im pleased with the overall effect, what do you guys think?
Oh and whilst i was opening the curtains for this shot i found a catepiller in a coccoon in the window frame, must have made it's way in when the window was open, should be cool seeing it transform!

I felt like doing this for my 365 as it has been on the cards for a while but i wasn't sure how to do it, so i just went ahead in the hopes it would give me an idea of how to improve it in a later shot. Long day at work and very tired, again! Is it a taboo for kissing oneself??? Have a nice evening guys and girls, off to cook dinner!

I was going to do my glitter shot today but when i saw how nice it was outside i thought i had to take advantage of it! I actually didn't know what to do, i had a flick through my ideas book but felt like there was a lack of materials and help to create them. However i then walked into the kitchen and saw the door my dad had yet to put in and thought bingo!
I always wanted to create an image of walking into another world from a room or wardrobe so im quite pleased how well this came out. Would have been nice to set it up better but because i was struggling on my own it was difficult to say the least. You should have seen the looks i got, to get the woods near me i have to cross a golf course, suffice to say a few golfers got a good look of a guy carrying a door crossing in front of them, very surreal i guess!

306/365 - 9/52

No walls,
Can keep me protected
No sleep,
Nothing inbetween me and the rain
And you can't save me now,
I'm in the grip of a hurricane
I'm gonna blow myself away.

I'm going out,
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else,
I brace myself,
Cause I know it's going to hurt,
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse.

No home,
I don't want shelter,
No calm,
Nothing to keep me from the storm,
And you can't hold me down,
'Cause I belong to the hurricane,
It's gonna blow us all away.

I'm going out,
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else,
I brace myself,
Cause I know it's going to hurt,
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse.

I hope that you see me,
Cause I'm staring at you,
But when you look over,
You look right through,
Then you lean and kiss her on the head,
And I never felt so alive, and so.. dead.

This is actually my shot for the last weeks theme of illusion i missed last week however i think i am going to change it now as i really don't like it. After spending way too long on the editing i think i have grown to hate it but after the effort i put into it i need to upload something!
Anyway will have to catch up with you later, my eyes are red raw and i need some rest. Catch you later guys. :(

I am the son
and the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a club, if you'd like to go
You could meet someone who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home
And you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen now,
When exactly do you mean?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

Hey guys, happy new year! I can't believe how fast last year seemed to go, especially as i am still doing my 365! lol Am i ever going to finish!?
Anyway i hope you all had a great new years and have made some good new years resolutions, ever being the complicated one i have made two!
I wanted to do a shot like this ever since i saw Sin City on t.v. and the shot by Aaron Nace is just as inspirational. I know it is not perfect but i thought while i had a little time i should have a try. I think i need to adjust my flash around me more as i still only have one working flash head and i definitely need to download some brushes to try out as this was all layer manipulation work! I think i need to make things easier for myself!
Anyhoo, i wish you all a great year and here's to what it may bring! :)
