Evidence of Life.

Wrinkles have been catching my attention lately.

They look and feel like evidence of an experience.  Proof of comfort and living.  They’re also proof that it may be time to change the sheets (:

Rewiring.

My husband and I have been making some adjustments in our home office area.  That means more wires everywhere.  I’m not a fan of wires.  They are clunky, messy looking, full of clutter…

 

Massive amounts of Internet wiring become a blue roller coaster curved composition.

New Project, New Perspective

I have been working from home for a while now (even my day job is telecommuting from home), so my house has become many things. It is where I spend most of my life these days.  In an effort to be more appreciative of the beauty that surrounds me, I have decided to photograph my house, home, office, environment with an aesthetic eye.  It is almost forced awareness or something to that effect.

I feel that many of us, myself included, take several things for granted on a daily basis.  Photography always opens my eyes to otherwise unnoticed compositions, light, positive and negative space.

This project is in newborn stage, so I don’t really have all the answers yet.  It has been boiling in the back of my mind for a while, so I think I’m at the point of just “doing.”  I feel once I have a small collection of photographs they will lend more information.  Until then, here is my first photograph.

I don’t think there is a better way to start this project than with my daily companion, Neko.  She likes to sun bathe and reminds me to take breaks when I forget (which is most of the time).  Today is not so sunny, so she has just planted herself in the middle of the living room floor hoping the sun will find her soon.  I hope so too.

I will be filing the photographs I take under the category This Domesticated Life if you want to follow along.
