I’ve watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can’t believe that I believed I wished
That you could see
There’s a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve
I’m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I’m tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground
I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers from the great beyond

Not the basketball kind, unfortunately (but speaking of that — GO STORM!).
A week ago, I finally managed to drag myself out of my room and walk around the neighborhood. My supposed trip to Yodobashi to check out a cheap lens was in vain but I managed to snap these photos with my trusty 50mm f1.8 and my new-old D80.
Bored. Can’t sleep. So I took an old photo (July 2008)
and just randomly adjusted some settings in Photoshop.
Some of them mature over time, some grow more childish.
Some reorder their priorities, others get a brand new set.
Some people grow stronger, others get weaker as time passes by.
Some people get harder and more jaded, but there are those who finally get their chance to feel.
Some of them may be towards one direction, while others trudge towards another.
But still, people change.
And so do I.
Took me this long to realize that I did change. I no longer get panicked over basketball news. I missed the Final Four — heck, even the Final Game. UConn won, btw. Geno won awards. Maya Moore swept this year’s POY awards. Tina Charles brought it on big time during the whole NCAA Tourney. I just knew all that from reading the recaps and not by listening to the game (which I did all the time these past few years). Sadly, I wasn’t that mad about March Madness anymore.
The Storm drafted Cal’s Ashley Walker. If she’s Camille Little 2.0, then I’m all up for it. The Storm needs a heck lot of front court talent IF LJ doesn’t sign with us and goes over to Phoenix instead. But anyway, I ain’t losing sleep over that. I’m not even that much excited about the opening in May. :p Let’s just wait and see what’ll happen once the season is underway, though. I might get my enthusiasm back.

I have nothing else to do so I resorted to playing with these images. Thanks to my bro, Jakey, for that cute caricature that I *harassed* him to draw. The “Green Moon” image is part of my Lunar Project set in Flickr.

[Project Kamay] Shot #1. Originally uploaded by kilcher
This is the first kamay shot that I’m posting. I’m not yet sure if I’ll include this in the main project. Trial shot lang kasi ito. Practice lang before the big day kung kelan dadating si Noodles the D40.
Project Kamay is something I thought of two or three days ago when I finally gave in to the urge to buy a Nikon D40 (kasalanan mo ito, Tha). Sana nawa maisakatuparan ko itong proyektong ito. Sana nawa hindi ako talunin ng matinding katamaran. Sana nawa.
