So here is my 2 cents on "Inside Out"

Spoilers, obviously )

All great stories are just a mirror, and this one isn't any different. If you haven't seen it, go. Just bring tissues.

The thing about a full life, is that things that matter less gets hold up, so I hardly write anymore. All my thoughts and photography go on FB, and not here, but this weekend deserves a mention.

There was also Book week last week on Tuesday. Only got three books for myself, and a few more as presents. Got through one of them already (Paper Towns- John Green).

Thursday )

Friday )

Spent Friday afternoon with Marvel's Daredevil, which turned out to be really fun and good television. I'm almost at the end of the season and will most likely finish it today or tomorrow.

Saturday )

I had a great weekend. I've got a busy week ahead of me. I guess I'll write when I can.

The problem with my camera is my lack of lenses. I ordered our Maya Isacovitz tickets a few hours too late, and we sat at the gallery, and so I could only take photos from afar.

Still, the color rendition and quality of the photos make my old Olympus camera look like a toy.

I would still like to have one of the tele-photo lenses with me (and a few others, but that's another matter...).

But anyway.

Here be pics. )

Leaving in 30 minutes to see the Rolling Stones (OH YEAH).

Also got some stuff straightened for tomorrow. I'm so happy to have some time off from work and a trip to look forward to.

Will probably leave at 12:30 tomorrow for the airport, our flight is at 15:45.


Six days!

So this week is going to be short and packed.

Sun-Mon are ordinary work days (blaurgh), but Tuesday is half a day and Wednesday is a holiday. We have the Rolling Stones concert on Wednesday as well, which will be AWESOME, hopefully. We'll probably get there quite early to find a good spot.

And Thursday is our flight, and Friday... GODI'MSOEXCITED!!!! Yes, I'm super excited for the Tori Amos concert, no surprises there.

Preparations )

The actual party )

I also got very drunk from the booze, which was really great. I usually have to drive, so I never allow myself to drink so much. Also - 30 year old Tequila. Brilliant. I was giggly as all hell, and didn't become sleepy! It seems my body handles Tequila much better than it does beer.

After the last game I opened the presents (got a handful of art books, a novel, a baking pan for brownies, some towels and a great kit of L'Occitane) and then we all got all the remains of the food and stuff back to the apartment.

In between I got a text from H's mom to ask if she left yet... Seems like my mom isn't the only one who does that with kids over 24...

Went to bed after 2:00 and got up this morning at 10:00. No headache and no nausea.

Wow, this Friday has passed by so quickly (yes, well that happens when you work from 7:00 until 11:00, go out to photograph a bit and then crash on the sofa for three hours).

I went to work and got through some really important stuff this morning, so even though I sacrificed some well-deserved-sleep, I'm still glad I went.

I'm also glad I went out to Tel Aviv with my new camera bag and Petzval Lens. I still need to get the real handle of this lens, being that it's manual focus and I don't seem to get the really great bokeh (could be the fact my Fuji isn't full frame, could be my framing). I'm optimistic though - I got some really good shots today (yes, you'll get a look).

I was dead tired when I came home, and hungry as well. After lunch I fell asleep on the sofa for two hours and laid there for another hour or so just for good measure. I only dragged myself up at around 18:30. That cup of coffee was neccessery.

And now I'm just sitting here thinking about dinner and my bed. We have to leave home at 10:00 tomorrow - my cousin and his wife are throwing a birthday party for their one-year-old twins at 11:00.

And, oh, look, Photobucket actually worked NOT SLOW AS FUCK.

Here be pics! )

It's been two months at my new job. My, how time flies. I really didn't feel it - and it feels like I've been there for a hundred years (in a good way).

I've a few big projects rolling in and out (I work on it, then my boss does and then he sends it back with needed adins and changes) and some stuff I have transferred to me from the other guys in small doses (most of the importation in the branch will eventually go through me).

There was an instructing lecture today about the section's regulations - super long and boring - but at least I'm all caught up on 9gag and managed to do something for Society6 (here.

Went beck to the office only to sit in a meeting with Asaf and Motty arguing and then headed home.

On to "Orphan Black".

...and I'm passed the 100 followers! Some girl (Israeli, no surprizes there) started a Society 6 artists group on FB, which gave me like, 15 followers in 12 hours...

Still no buys but I'm hopefull.

And thank god Hagar texted me just now, because I totally forgot we had a show this evening.

Independence day was great as usual, but there was some rain and alot of wind. I dragged my mom out in the evening before to catch the fireworks, but I won't again. It's just not worth all the mess. So I'll only get to see the biggest and those who fly highest.

Regualr week next week, after all the hoo-ha of the last few.

OK. Back to "Out there"

Free shipping on my Society 6 shop! Go to this link - http://society6.com/TamiIsaak?promo=8a429b

I have two (quite different, I might add) prints over 20 promotions. I gotta keep on my toes, through. I still haven't sold anything, except to Netalie. Work!

(I was super pissed up until I had dinner. The bus was 40 minutes late so I arrived home to run through change of clothes and cab ride to exercise class, and then my mom pissed me on the way back, but food is calming. I just wish I could have had tomorrow for myself - I need to go to the doctor for some stupid form for work and I have an optometrist apointment on 12:00, in Netanya, yeah, long glasses saga.)

Win of the day - get an artist I adore to follow me on Society 6 (today it's Nikola Nupra)


(Also, I'm up to 46 followers and two of my pieces are at the shop - true the shop has a hundred pages and each page has 20 pieces but still.)

(Oh, and if everything goes well I'm going to be starting work this Sunday - At the Israeli Institute of Standards)

(And yes, the Society 6 news takes precedent.)
tamara_russo: (No Fate)
There is more to day about yesterday and today, but it will wait.

I just scored Eric Fan (one of Society 6's biggest artists - this is his page, and as you can see his best sellers have some 900 promotions) as a follower. True, he follows about 1000 people, but I actually got his attention with a comment (my god I was first to comment in one of his posts!) and now...

I'm so very happy.

But I've been happy before that. Because, you know, for the first time in years I feel something moving with my art. I haven't sold anything yet, and I still have only 31 followers' and my most promoted piece has 12 promotions, but it's growing every day. After years of nothing but photography and telling people that, yes, I photograph and paint and people nodding and forgetting about it quite fast, I feel like this is change. It might die out as quickly as it came, but I've missed this feeling of hope. Maybe, just maybe, someone somewhere will buy the first piece and maybe more will follow.

I had some good work done today.

My Diana F 120 film needed developing, so I set about in search for a place that does that. My first stop was in a big store in Alenbi where they informed me that no, they don't develop 120 color film but only B/W but another store in Alenbi does. Also, they suggested I glue the crack on my old Olympus since I'll have no other way to get it fixed because parts aren't being sent to Israel anymore and it's quite an old camera. I bought a few films extra to have (ISO 100, 400 and 800) and went to the store they pointed me to, where they happily took my film and told me to come back two hours later. They also repeated the glue suggestion from the same reason.

Took off towards Dizengof Center, where I went ot buy shoes as my old snickers are not as stable as they once were. Got a nice pair at Adidas, and as it turns out, I seem to be size 41 in these kind of shoes. Weird.

Anyway, Also got some body scrub at Soap (nice little promotion next to the store had me picking my favorite scent and reach into a box and get some kind of present and I got 20% discount, so very nice) and some crossword puzzle magazine and the latest National Geographic - cover page being about drones...

Took a turn in SOHO, nothing caught my eye, made it to iStore to find out that (as much as I expected) my ipod isn't worth the bother or money of fixing it and went to lunch. Moon had, as usual, very good sushi and very bad service but I really wasnted that sushi and when the Agadashi Tofu took forever they took off 30% of the cost.

Walked back to Alenbi (all by foot - true it's not that far but all together and the way back with parcels it can be annoying - lucky thing I had a good mood and good weather) and got my developed film and the CD with the photos scanned.

Made it home by 16:30 and took a look at the photos - I knew there were some I stupidly didn't take the lens cap off for (first time with this camera - needs getting used to) and those I took inside the Market needed longer exposure or a more open shutter but a few turned out nice and one of the double exposure is sweet as hell (obviously it's Udi's). I learned a lot by looking at them and I think I'll do a better job next time. Also, I need a shutter release for it, and when I get the Fuji I'll get one for that as well.

The better photos from the Diana, Jerusalem area )

One of my better combinations of photography and illustration. Independence.
