project 365 // days 59 - 65

59 : 365 Found the globe I have been hunting for for years at an estate sale!!! I had to drive about the block, which took way longer than it should have due to one way streets with nowhere to turn off of them, because I couldn't figure out where to park. I was super crabby walking into the house since I just spent so much time parking and had forgotten to eat lunch. I walked into the room where the globe was right behind a girl who spotted it seconds before I did. She was pretty excited about it. "Honey, a globe! It's perfect!" I figured it was gone and there is nothing worse than seeing something you LOVE getting snatched up right in front of you at a sale.

 She looked all over on it for a price tag before saying "Oh, I guess it's not for sale. How sad" I swooped right it and grabbed it. I'm normally pretty shy about asking how much things are but I reeeeally wanted this puppy. As luck would have it, it already had a tag on it that she must have just looked right over. Guess it was just meant to be! I even had the perfect little spot for it.
60 : 365 Painted using watercolors for the first time which lead to this important post about creating.
 61 : 365 Because it's been too long since I've shared my odd things...
62 : 365 Boss man (or chair thief, your choice)
63 : 365 Lockers. Ahhh, they're so beautiful, and oh so handy. I know it's totally normal to have messy closets but it drives me crazy just knowing that clutter is lurking behind doors. These lockers have allowed me to get my closet completely organized. Feels so good.
64 : 365 I've mentioned a few times recently how far the cats and Klaus have come in regards to getting along and this photo just proves it. In the evenings all three come to cuddle with Jeff and I while we watch Netflix but to catch these two SO close to cuddling without anyone else in the room is a huge deal and just about made my heart burst.
65 : 365 My first stereograph or 3D GIF. Photojojo explains it best - "Our eyes are spaced 2-3 inches apart, so they see images from slightly different angles. The brain then merges those two images to make one three-dimensional image. The disparity between the two images is what helps us figure out how far away an object is.Taking two pictures of the same thing, spaced as far apart as a pair of eyes, will create the same effect. If you look at those pictures in a particular way, your brain’s programming will take over and create the illusion of three dimensions."

This one was an accident, I just happened to take two photos that were super similar and then was like "hey, I should make one of those things". The two cactus come up from the bottom center are what look the most 3D to me. It's a little less than perfect but it does make me want to try my hand at making a few more though. 
Sorry if I just made you dizzy! Heh!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  1. Those lockers are pretty sweet! Hey, another cool thing you can do with stereographs: anaglyphs. Once you have your two images, it is so simple to do! You can make them with your digital camera, of course, but it's pretty fun using the Holga TIM if you still have yours ;)

  2. Great photos!

    I'm new blogger. Check out my blog! :)

  3. Super the 3D Effect, I have the impression to be on your home ;-)
    I love your fantastic "head" looking ceiling on the third picture!

  4. This is so cool! I had noticed before that when I look things using only one eye they seem different in space, but didnt know why! The gif is awesome!

  5. Admiring your skull show case! SO pretty! I love collecting things, but I worry about ever having to move them. Was it hard to move all your odds and ends? XO.


    1. Maybe? I don't know. I've only ever moved with lots of odds and ends. Hah. But really everything super fragile always gets put in special boxes that I make sure go in my car and that I carry that way I don't have to worry about anyone else being too rough with them. As long as they're packaged carefully it's no biggie! :)

  6. Love that globe, glad it worked out that you could grab it!

    This is a bit random, but came across this and thought you'd like it:

    Also lots of other cool stuff in that AMNH and Etsy collection!

    1. Haha! Cute! I love museum gift shops, they always have the most fun stuff.

  7. Best 365 project ever. I love seeing these posts. That stereograph is super neat!

  8. That gorgeous Prof. Sting-Ray ;) Heart=melted <3

    1. Hehe! Isn't he just the cutest little thing?!

  9. That gif is nuts! I never knew that and it really works!
