Just the other day, I was thinking, “Wow, Day 18 and I’m still doing this photo challenge! That’s about 15 days more than I did with my 365-day challenge!”
Alas, I’ve stumbled. Tripped and fell, right over bokeh. I read tutorials, I played with my DSLR even, in the attempt of making some beautiful bokeh. It looks so easy on the tutorials. But I failed. And as you may, or may not, know, I am too cheap to buy apps. The only reason I have diptic and hipstamatic is because my beautiful friend Nessy over at Blocks and Knocks bought them for me! So there is no even buying an app to “cheat” and get it.
But I’m not going to let it defeat me. I am going to finish the challenge, and I figure 29/30 is still a passing grade.
I have to say, I’ve been thankful for this photo challenge this month. There’s so much I want to say, but at the same time, I don’t want to say it. I can only get so personal about certain things here. And there are some things that should just stay personal. But it’s consuming me and it’s almost impossible for me to even think about anything else to write about at the moment. Sorry to be so vague! Needless to say, it’s been a shit year, and I don’t really see anything GOOD coming any time in the immediate future.
That said, here’s day 18 and 19. Day 20 will be AWOL.
