I hope all who are reading are doing well.
I've been very productive with photography, and I've been taking a break on traditional medias for a while. With the weather changing so much, off and on, there are a lot of opportunities to be outside photographing something interesting. So I've been spending a majority of my time taking walks. I take tons of photos, literally hundreds in one day; I'm constantly taking photos, and only a few end up satisfying me. I am an extreme perfectionist about my work. That doesn't often work out in my favor. But it's still always so enjoyable to me.
I'll be taking a trip with my family to D.C soon, probably around the 20th. Excited about that. I've never been to D.C, and I've always wanted to go to the museums, especially the Holocaust Museum. I'll take as much photography as I can.
I'm going to start collecting different bugs. I'm terrified of most bugs, so this will be interesting. I'm scared of them, but they fascinate me still, especially spiders. I'll keep most of the butterflies and moth's in a shadowbox, I suppose I need a shadow box for beetles and such as well. Summer means collecting bones for me. I never really get many opportunities to dissect or preserve anything because a lot of the hunting seasons aren't in until about October. Anything that I find dead I collect and gather bones from. Because bones are very random in shape and are so in a lot of species, it is very difficult to plan out anything to create with them. I never know what I'm going to create out of bones until I've played around with them for a good while. I've tired carving bone with dremel tools but the dust is extremely unhealthy and it was during winter, so I could not do it outside. I'll try it again. I have a few deer skulls to practice on.
Anyways. Thanks to whoever is reading my mundane, rather useless information that I scatter around the internet world.
