This image is the representation of the clouds being jealous whenever I go on an attempt to take some astrophotography or anything that seems interesting in the night sky. I found it odd when trying to photograph the halo, with my only lens, that the cloud actually creeped in, in a 30 second exposure, then making it look like a hand was trying to take away the moon. Or at least I think so in my opinion.
As much as I love the clouds and how light shines through them when it is a good cloudy day, even though I don’t take much photography of it, their help is not appreciated when they try to pry away the beauty.
You can check out my flickr at my attempts of night photography by clicking on the image, along with some other images I’ve taken.
This is too awesome on my opinion to not get my attention or at least a mention in this photo blog, which it will now.
So from my liked pages on facebook, I happened to come across this beautiful piece of work. Now I am not sure how much of these posters are considered design to some out there, but to me they are considered minimalist posters for classic video games. You could not need anything else to represent these icons in games other than the items they can be most easily represented with.
Though im sad they did not have more, or a megaman one for that matter, they are still well done and they receive my kudos.
If by any chance you would like to purchase these beauties you can follow the link below onto Etsy and you are free to do as you wish after that.
Lately, not that I have been feeling under the weather, but I have just not been feeling like posting. It’s not a big issue to me to blog and I am not really one to talk much about what goes on in my life, especially on the internet, unless I engage in a conversation. This is my design photo blog and the reason I have it its just so I won’t steer away from the design world and to keep myself busy in my freelance world. As I much as I try to keep myself busy in this town in the middle of nowhere, there seems to be no fruition. It’s easy to say that it will pay in the end, but maintaining a section of my life in order and effort that is not making my career advance in any direction, or so I feel, tends to not make me want to work on marketing myself.
It’s a never ending battle against new clients trying to rip off the designer and giving any reason find “discounts”. I understand that’s what life is about, fighting for what you believe in or in order to make life comfortable. It gets annoying…
When I really think about it, there are a lot more several reasons as to why my confidence in doing freelance has gone down in the last few months. Of course im not going to list them since I find this to be a blog, and not my personal rant page, but it can be both since this blog is about my thoughts in the design world… rants about design.
Anyhow, as a fresh new year, I promised myself to just make it a habit, like checking facebook, then getting tired of it, closing the tab, opening a new one, then pressing the f key and hitting enter only to end up in facebook again. I usually hate making resolutions because I see no reason to not start resolutions at any other given time, but let’s try to make life work all over again. I also expect it to be easier this time since now that I have a daytime job, income will come more easily and the marketing for the business will make it easier.
So, it’s time to get back to work again, even if I have no followers, I’ll work on that too. Maybe even getting on that 365 day lettering challenge. Let’s work together

Creative Catharsis: Posters of Strange Client Quotes by Irish design duo, Mark + Paddy.
I found all of these hilarious. Some of them are almost a déjà vu of things I’ve heard clients say.
oh clients u so funny
oh that feel…
An attempt at capturing the Leonid meteor shower.
Sadly, nothing was captured, so the photo shoot became a blurry astrophotography. The good part is, this 4th attempt at night photography allowed me to capture the milky way.
