Tonight could be the night I finally get my sleep schedule back in line—it’s still screwed up from the beginning of this week. I’ve finished up everything I’ve got to do today, and it’s only 9.

This weekend’s about freelance work and video games. I’m playing through Mass Effect (again) and jumping straight into Mass Effect 2 after that. Today, it rained all day. It’s was the sort of day for indoors stuff like this.

I’m trying to be a little more risky/a little less boring this yea. I’ve been doing more processing to my photos and trying new things—I just need to do the same thing in my life as I do in my photography, but that’s another issue I suppose. This shot, with all the colors I didn’t think were there, reminds me somehow of growing up in the Eighties.

Looks like my camera’s image sensor couldn’t handle all that sunlight in this shot (stripe at right of image). It’s extremely bright in the morning lately. And I’ve been pretty out of it. I wasn’t able to post today’s shot in time because I fell asleep early in the evening and woke up again at around three in the morning. My sleep schedule is a disaster right now.

At the week’s midway point, I’m finally over the awful 16-hour start. I’m fully awake and alert again; I had a full night’s sleep; things are about back to normal. Let’s see if I can make something of the rest of the week.

I shot this toward the end of my unbelievably long work day, in the early part of the morning. There is something nice about the middle of the night or very early morning. It’s nice to be able to set up a tripod in the middle of a parking lot and take my time shooting long-exposure shots like this.

There isn’t much to say about today except that it was something of two days in one and that I’m glad it’s over. I worked a sixteen-hour day, not getting out of the office until past two in the morning. I never want this to happen again.

I did all sorts of work today, as I had planned to. Leftover work from the main job, freelance work, and some spillover work for a certain well-known internet media empire I shall not mention. That was the best part. I did all my work while watching loads of sci-fi on Netflix and listening to the rain outside. This is more or less my idea of a good Sunday.

This is about the only way this shot could turn out half-decent. I tried taking a long-exposure shot in the middle of a trail in the middle of the dark—I could see pretty much nothing but blackness—my tripod wasn’t fastened right, and the shot ended up blurry and generally bad. Now, it’s kind of cool. I got through some design work today, but I really would have preferred to wake up earlier. I’ll do that tomorrow.

This is going to be a busy weekend, so today I’m kicking back and getting to sleep (relatively) early, and I’ve got a lot of caffeine locked and loaded. I’m going to have to do some spillover work for the full-time job and push my freelance project through past the midway mark if possible, all while trying to get some errands out of the way as usual.
