new design

the old design i had made was made in a time of my life when i was starting to follow the road of despair. i believe that i had recently broken up with a girl and i started to really question if i was ever going to find true love again.

that’s the tricky thing about true love, it seems to be ever-so evasive, quick to scurry away from you. the thing is that often times other things are mistaken for true love and when the reality of the situation comes crashing down on you, you’re just left with a sense of hopelessness.

and that’s where i was a while ago. i looked around and i saw all this useless beauty because i was surrounded by beauty but it seemed like there was no use for it, for if you could not share in the world’s simplest of pleasures with the one you love, why do you even bother?

and so i’ve been trying to get myself to come up with a new design for the blog, but as luck would have it new designs are hard to come by…especially for non-artistic people like me. so instead, i’ve give the blog a little facelift with a minimalist design.

it feels good though, to not have to see the old design and be reminded of a time in my life where i had begun to lose hope. we should never lose hope.

product photography

i’m making the trek into the city tonight to do some product photography for a friend of mine. it appears that she’s the pastry chef at this bakery in the sunset district and they are going to have a chocolate truffle tasting tonight. i’m going to go and check out some of the confections that they have and also get an idea of what kind of pictures they want for their shop.

i’m not really too keen on taking pictures of food. it’s still a bit of a mystery to me how to make food look tasty. there’s something that seems to always be lost in translation when it comes to food photography. i don’t quite know what the secret is, but i’m sure that it’ll be a lot of work to get it to the pro level.

i’m just going to try and wing it and do a few test shoot to see how it works out though…and besides, a free truffle tasting can’t be SO bad.

welcome to tuesday

today is tuesday. though many people believe that mondays are the worst, i would like to nominate tuesdays as the worst day of the week.

monday – yes, you have to start the week again. go to school, work, or whatever other obligation you have.

wednesday – it’s hump day. how bad can it be? you’re getting over the hump and there’s salvation soon.

thursday – friday is only a day away. it can’t possibly be too bad for much longer.

friday – joyous days are here again!

but tuesday…what do you have to foward to on a tuesday? nothing, really. the painful memory of monday still burns in your head, there’s nothing exciting to look forward to the next day, and worst of all, tuesdays just seem to drag on because there’s no end in sight.

yeah, tuesdays are probably the worst day of the week.

but then again, if you ask me tomorrow what the worst day of the week is, i bet i’d tell you wednesday.

man…i really have to stop living for the weekends.
