Disney Princesses in Real Life

Posted on Saturday, December 29, 2012 in Web

I love the Internet and the endless cool things to discover. I was looking for an image I saw years ago that revealed how similarly Disney princesses are all drawn the same with the same body shape and everything. I didn’t find that image — if you happen to know what I am talking about comment with a link please.

But I did find this cool photo manipulation series by photographer Jirka Vaatainen showing his idea of what Disney princesses would look like in real life.

I think my favorites are:

They are really well done and cute. Now, off again to look for that blasted picture. Down the rabbit hole, indeed.

Camera Lust

Posted on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 in Web

If you are looking for a holiday present for someone who has an eye for photography, this camera is present for someone who has money. My CanonEOS 40D was the best camera ever. I really loved the kind of pictures I could take with it and the fact that I could change the lens. I am not a good photographer, I don’t have the “eye” that some people naturally do. But I adore taking pictures.

Buy.com has this CANON EOS 5D MARK III SLR Camera Body + 24-105mm + 3 Lens Kit + 48GB +Case & More for $3800. Yes that’s fucking expensive. But yes these cameras are worth it. You don’t even need to be good at framing a shot to take a really attractive photo with these cameras.

My camera went away with my ex and I am sure is long gone. But I adored it. Looking back through the photos captured with that beautiful camera is hard because the memories associated with them are entwined with emotions surrounding the ex. But when I can detach myself and look at them I can see the artistry that the camera lent to my untrained photographer’s eye. A point and shoot camera just doesn’t compare at any level.
