Some days when you edit, nothing turns out quite like you planned. I tried No. 47 about half a dozen times, once I even uploaded a finished image but quickly deleted and started over again. I knew going into this ambitious project that I wouldn’t love all my uploads but I didn’t count on loathing some of them. I have some ideas for No. 48, I am eager to put No. 47 behind me. This feather is from a domesticated parrot, it’s feather molted naturally (I don’t go around plucking parrot feathers). I have mentioned my husband’s disdain for anything avian in the house. Birds are disease riddled animals to him so when I shot this it was as covert as a Green Beret special ops mission.
I am taking a couple hours off Friday morning to just hang out with myself. I plan on shipping straight through to Monday starting Saturday and need to get myself mentally ready for the mountain of orders that need to be fulfilled. I thankfully have help on Saturday and she will get to witness first hand my complete type-A packing style, wherein one package will take an hour to prepare. Hopefully she will be faster than me. Thank you again to everyone that ordered, that was sure nice of you, I promise to take real good care of your parcels.
I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
