I've been away from DA for a long time, mostly because my job was taking pictures of newborns all day long, so the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was take more pictures. I had a good 9 month run there, but my little-miss-know-it-all bit started getting old like it always does, and I was no longer happy to go to work. Plus my disability payments were about to stop, and the job paid less than disability did. H-m-m... run around on my feet all day for $x ? or stay at home pursuing my other interests for $x + $y ? Not much of a choice really.
Of course, my second job this whole time has been watching my niece 8+ hours a day for 2 to 4
I uploaded a bunch of new photos! This time around, I've put up my pendants for you to check out.
I use a "Scrabble Tile Pendant" technique to turn my photos into jewelry. I get a little better with every batch, and I'm hoping to start selling them by the end of the summer.
I hope you like them, and I'd love to know what you think! Feel free to leave any critiques or feedback that you may have.
I recently went on a photo tour of Japan, and now I'm starting to put up the best of the photos.
So far, there are pictures from the traditional village Tsumago, and from Matsumoto Castle. I'll be adding stuff from Kyoto, Yudanaka (and the legendary snow monkeys), Nagano, and of course Tokyo.
I hope you like them, and feel free to leave comments or critiques.
