This was inspired partially by the fact I got my camera working briefly (it's died again since, but it lasted through one day, at least), and partially by the LJ community that was in the spotlight. The idea is that you go through the day taking photos of every thing that happens to create a pictorial record of a day in your life. I preferred to do my own thing rather than following the community guidelines, so this was essentially just for a bit of fun and because India is interesting.

(Sometimes, anyway. I did specifically choose a day I knew we would actually be going out and doing things; a lot of the time I spend most of the day in my room just reading or failing at drawing or dicking around on the interwebs, and it's not terribly exciting. >>)

Follow the cut for more puppies than expected, terrible photography, and extreme picture-heavy-ness (53 of them, to be exact). )

Kumoricon photospam time! Hooray! )

P.S. Whoops, forgot about this. I scribbled this tiny little thing last night. I was just poking around communities I've never visited before and never followed, and stumbled across a FFVII 100-word drabble one. And did the most recent prompt, because I could.

(Not sure if I'm actually going to post it there though. I feel like my writing is going downhill; I still maintain my first ever fic was probably one of, if not the best, that I've managed to write. And I think that's because yaoi has killed my reading. I used to read books constantly. Now I don't have the attention span and only read porn and shit, a fair portion of which is probably crap. I'm pretty sure it shows. And it does mean that on the rare occasion I do write anything, I'm really wary about posting it anywhere because I'm never sure if it's even halfway decent.) /whiny tangent

But I'll post it here, because this LJ gets all my shit. >>

Prompt:#121: Spirit

And now that is all.

Okay. So. I’m at my dad’s, and forgot to bring any revision stuffst, so it makes sense that I post all my Expo photos now, right? Cause it’ll probably take me a while, and I might as well do it now when I can’t do anything useful anyway, rather than do it later when I could be studying. Logics and stuff. Yeah.

And thus, onwards to photospam! Massive photospam. Literally, as I still can't resize pictures embedded from photobucket. >> )
asreoninfusion: (Kamelot)
Tiiiired. But sleep is a secondary concern when there is Kamelot to be had!

(As are chemistry practical assessments and physics mock exams. >>;; On the plus side, at least I didn’t have a week long geography field trip right after the Kamelot concert this time?)

So. Photos. Despite getting there three and a half hours early – and finding there were already twenty or thirty odd people already queuing outside the venue, goddamnit – I still only managed to get in the second row from the front (just off-center from the middle). Which is not bad at all really, but still. Maybe it’ll be a progressive thing. Last year I was third from the front, this year second, and next year I’ll make it to first! Right? *hopeful look*

Anyhow. When I managed to stick my camera between the heads of the two people in the row in front of me – one of whom was, of course, at least a head taller than me, and was constantly sticking their arm in the little space I did have to see through – I did get some pretty good pictures, so… onwards to photospam?

Warnings for rather a lot of pictures. And I still haven't figured out how to resize stuff, so they're all stupidly massive too >.< )

So, yosh. Epic fun tiems were had, but now I do believe that sleepies are in order. Good night, dears! *goes to crash on the nearest soft surface*

P.S. Somebody, please, pleasepleaseplease teach me how to resize the photos! >.<

Because it just had to be done. We have snow! A fair bit of snow too. It still hasn't melted since yesterday, so I'm gonna go take more photos of teh prettyness before I photospam. *nodnod*

But, just cause I can, I'm gonna post my attempts at making a Sephy-esque one-winged snow angel now. ^^

Snoooooow. )

Also; 200th LJ post. Whoo! *offers celebratory cake round*
asreoninfusion: (Default)

Woohoo! Guess what I just found. Lappytoppy apparently has a very convenient built-in memory card reader slot thingy. Which means that I can upload my photos at will and never have to worry about being able to find my camera cable (which is still missing) again, hooray! ^^ It also means that I can finally give you my photospam from when I went to see Europe* on Sunday.

* Uh, that is, the band Europe. I didn’t go on a tour across the continent of Europe. Shame really, cause that would’ve been epic. ^^;; But I’m afraid we’ll have to settle for the more minor epic of a concert instead.

We were in another really small venue – more like a club than a proper theatre or concert hall or whatever you hold big concerts in. In fact, it may well have been a club under normal circumstances. O_O I’ve never been in a club before... scary. Annnnyway. It had this convenient ledge all the way round the room for putting drinks and stuff on, so I managed to sit on that. Which meant that a) my feet didn’t die, and b) I ended up about a head taller than everyone else and could actually see and get almost decent photos. ^^

Well, I say decent, but they’re still kinda blurry and underexposed and all that. Concert lighting sucks ass. Or maybe it’s my crappy camera. Or both. Probably both. )

Now, what else? I feel like I should be doing something. Colin is in Australia (without taking me with him, damnit T^T) and Mum and teh little childrens are away on a random holiday at the moment, so I’m home alone. I can watch whatever TV I want! Watch horror movies that my mother wouldn’t approve of and stuff my face with popcorn while doing so! Eat chocolate cake for breakfast! (Actually, I do that last one on a fairly regular basis anyway >>;;) I must take advantage of the situation! ...I just don’t have anything in particular that I wanna do. ^^;;

It’s more annoying than useful anyway. Since I haven’t learnt to drive yet and all people who do drive are absent, I have to catch the bus to school. Which involves leaving the house at quarter past six. In the morning. Approaching winter, when it is freezing cold and I don’t have a coat cause my old one has pretty much fallen apart and I haven’t bought a new one yet. Not nice. >.< And despite leaving at a ridiculous hour of the morning I still barely get to school on time. *shakes fist at failish public transports*…Yeah. Just wanted to complain about that. ^^;;

o_O …And… things are exploding outside. I must go investigate!

*headdesk* It turns out the exploding things were fireworks. I’d completely forgotten it was Bonfire Night. -_-‘’ Aw, and that means we don’t have a firework party this year since everyone’s away. I like playing with the funneh firework setting on my camera and seeing what pretty patterns I can create. T^T

Anyhow. I don’t think I actually have anything else to add to this post, so I’ll leave you in peace and get back to haunting the Expo forums and trying to figure out how the hell I’m gonna do my cosplay for May. *claps hands together and dances off happily*

asreoninfusion: (Default)

Well, Expo weekend is over. Which, of course, means that it is time to go home, have some food that is not pocky, relax a bit, and then get sorting through the photos. All that is done, and thus, I bring you photospam!

Y’know what I said about aiming to be really proactive and actually go and ask people for photos? …I failed. Miserably. I did stalk the photoshoots though, and thus have a lot of photos from that. I think something like 95% of my photos from Saturday came from the FFVII meetup and photoshoot, heh. ^^;; I managed to gatecrash the Bleach photoshoot on the Sunday, so I do have some pictures of that as well. But again, it’s mostly FFVII. Sorry. ^^;;

Image heavy is an understatement. I lost count, but I think there’s something like 30+ photos? So, uh, this will probably kill your internets… )

 

So, yeah. Lotsa fun. We so need to go to another convention together, you guys! *flail* Actually having someone there to hang out with and talk to would raise the level from ‘fun’ to ‘epic’, and nothing beats a bit of epicness. ^^

I also have to start planning my cosplay for May. Ideas, people? (Apart from gothic-lolita!Sephy, Yoda. As epic as that would be, I would feel like a complete and utter idiot actually wearing it at a convention. And when I feel like an idiot, I need to have someone with me who I can snap and sulk at, else I get all twitchy and slightly homicidal. So, possibly not a good idea. ^^;; I can always do the cosplay just for you and Sky though.)

But more importantly, it is time for me to go on that photo album raid! So I shall return tomorrow or sometime with some photos that actually have me in them, ‘kay? ^^

asreoninfusion: (Default)
So, I had completely forgotten about this, but there was a Dream Theater concert last night. ^^ Do you listen to Dream Theater? I'm pretty sure that Sky does, though I can't remember why I think that ^^;;

Anyhow. I haven't really prepared a big long rant or anything like I usually do. I was dead tired last night; went straight to sleep when we got home and then didn't wake up til about ten minutes before MSN time ^^;; So, yeah. Mostly just photos today, I think. Not that they're particularly good photos, since we were pretty far away and in an awkward position right at the side, but eh.

Photos are still photos, even if they're slightly blurry, awkwardly-angled photos, ne? ^^;; )
asreoninfusion: (Default)

Yeah, it’s a week late, but a week late is better than never, right? ^^;;

In any case, I finally have that photospam I promised you! I gave up trying to find that silly cable and went and stole Colin’s camera and the cable for that (I tried using his cable with my camera, but it was the wrong size *pout*) and switched the memory cards and uploaded everything like that. *nodnod*

So. This is Arundel Castle. My dad was only willing to pay for the cheap tickets, so we weren’t allowed inside the castle very much, but the grounds were awesomely shiny anyway. Like, awesomely shiny. I’m not usually one for paying much attention to gardens, but this one was amazing. You’ll see.

Only one more thing to say really, and that is to apologise for the crappiness of the photos. I don’t do justice to the awesome, seriously. The lighting was really difficult, cause the sky was cloudy but bright, so it either had the sky the right colour and the foreground too dark to see anything, or the foreground visible and the sky completely bleached, depending on what exposure you used. At least, that’s what my dad said, and I just smiled and nodded cause I wasn’t entirely sure what he was on about when he started going into exposure lengths and fractions of seconds and things. He does professional photography, so I assume he knows what he’s talking about.

Well, anyway. The point is I couldn’t get the lighting to play nicely, so the photos aren’t brilliant. I will also admit to increasing the contrast and otherwise playing with the settings on a lot of them to try and overcome that little problem. Heh. ^^;;

Onwards to photospam! )

And that, I believe, is all for now. And hopefully it won’t be another three weeks before I update my LJ again *ist teh fail at regular updating* -_-‘’ Well, as soon as I can get Zack to play nicely (why so hard to draw, Zacky?! >.< *flail*) I shall update with my little sketch I did in my maths book *nodnod* Until then~! *bows randomly then huggles* *goes off to have yet another attempt at drawing Zack* ^^

Like the title says =3

We had that (rather random) cooking session in our physics lesson today, and I made cake! I was going to try and do something different, but I now realise I don't actually know how to make anything apart from cake ^^;; 

Also, it's Asreon's birthday today! ^^ (although by the time you read this it'll be yesterday, but its today for me >>) I mentioned it to Sky the weekend before last, and we were going to make a cake on Sunday, but I'd forgotten about teh show >.< So this cake can be the replacement of the virtual one we were going to make then *nodnod* 

Of course, a photo is required... )
 The cake itself is plain, but it has jam in the middle and clotted cream and strawberries on top *nod* No candles though, cause candles on a cake for As... well, I'm not sure there's enough candles in existance for that. Heh ^^;; And yeah... my cooking skills need a little work. Ah well.

Happy Birthday As~!!

Yesterday I said I’d give you a photospam if the place we were going to was sufficiently shiny, didn’t I? Well, it turns out the place was very pretty indeed, and thus, here is your promised photospam! ^^ 

Beware photo-heavy-ness >> )


So, when were you going to come over? ^^

I promise you we’ll find a way
To make a pathway home
I’ll carry you; you’re not alone…

Whoo! Hello. By the time you get this – which would be now, since you’re reading it – this entry will be almost a week out of date. But, for the sake of posterity, I thought I’d actually write the thing straight after the Kamelot concert. Even if that means writing an entry at… ha! It’s 01:23 ^^ *is easily amused by random things like that* *coughs* …at some ridiculous time in the morning.

Anywho. I’d best make this quick, cause I really should go to bed… (nahh, who needs sleep? I’ll be on a five hour coach journey tomorrow, I’ll sleep then)
 

Photo tiem!! )


So, I think that’s all for now ^^ So much for making it quick… it’s now twenty past two >.< *so should be asleep* Ah well ^^;; I’ll just, uh, finish packing my bag for the fieldtrip now… and maybe go to bed. Maybe… >>

EDIT (Friday afternoon): Whoo, finally back from geography trip! *is dead* I'm posting this now cause its all ready, but I'll probably not be able to post the Wales photos 'til tomorrow (it's already taken an hour to upload all these photos *curses slow internets* and you know what Colin's like about me being on the computer too long...) Comments are luff!

Yosh. I think its been five weeks since I updated here? Well, there hasn't really been anything noteworthy happening. Until Wednesday, when I went to see a Nightwish concert, yay! I thought you might be interested, and I actually managed to get some good photos, so... photospam time!!

Plus a few bits of other random stuffs, yay! ^^ )
asreoninfusion: (Default)

So, off I went to my uncle’s house for our family get-together/firework display. And, of course, with me I took my camera, and proceeded to discover it is difficult to photograph fireworks.

Then I realised my camera had a preset function for fireworks, which make life a bit easier. Not much, cause the function had a slow shutter speed and my hands are insanely unsteady, a combination which would usually equal humungous blur. I certainly couldn’t take any accurate pictures of the fireworks. But instead I got a lot of pretty colour and patterns, mostly looking like neon squiggles on a black background. So I gave up on photographing the fireworks as fireworks and started trying to see what patterns I could make ^^

And thus…

abstract fireworky photo spam of DOOM! )

So… yeah. That’s something I haven’t done before ^^ I need more original themes for photo spams...

PS. Sky. Find and read Temeraire. Now. …Well, maybe not right now ^^ But it’s awesome. You’ll like it. *nods* And I have no idea why I felt like adding that as a PS…


asreoninfusion: (Default)
Yesh. Well. Photo spams are fun. Anime conventions are fun. Thus, this post must be doubly fun! …Or not. Either way ^^
 
So! Expo. Not particularly much to say that doesn’t apply to all convention-type things (excessive amounts of pocky, large groups of overexcited fanboys and girls, squeeing at random things… you know how it is ^^), so on with the photos, ne?  


And, now that that’s done, I must now go and do some revision. Ick. Or I could just watch tons of Trinity Blood… >>

Hullo! Katy hast been on another of her silly, uber-long walky quests, and thus a photo spam is in order ^^
 
Unfortunately I don’t have the one photo that I wanted and that was the point of the whole quest *sigh* I was trying to walk to Buckland you see, just for the pure lol of it, and was going to take a picture of their lovely wrought-iron sign. But alas. I had no idea where Buckland actually was in terms of footpaths, having only been there by car before (I looked it up on the map when I got home – if I’d gone 100 or so metres further and followed the path downwards instead of going up when I did I would have got there. Argh! >.<)
 
All the same, it was a rather interesting – if also foot-killing – walk. It also proved that you should never let me roam freely, as I will, if the occasion arises, do very stupid things to aid my exploration… like climb down a man-hole. (It was half open and I couldn’t resist…^^;;) I also clambered around an old half-ruined house, an underground building with no doors (a problem I didn’t discover until after jumping down through a window >.<) and a fort.

I fail -_-'' I have no chapter, I'm sorry!! *sniffles and bows apologetically* I started reading Lord of the Rings last weekend, you see, and I'm afraid its rather taken over my mind. And killed it. My brain doesn't have the capacity to read books that long ^^;; That aside, it has left me very little time for other things, such as schoolwork and storyness >.< But don't worry. I'm a few chapters into Return of the King. I'll finish it soon, and then you'll get the storyness, I promise...

But until then, I have some photos for the two concerts I've been to recently ^^
